If you've tried fresh batteries and ensured that there is no corrosion inside the battery compartment, then it is a problem that wouldn't be cost effective to fix. Repairs on most camera equipment at any shop run at least $50 and up.

Working used cameras of this model are selling for $20 on eBay, so I'd suggest exploring that option if the first suggestions don't fix the problem

When I turn on my camera it has a little yellow camera with an exclamation point.It say's to turn camera off, remove the lens cap or obstruction and turn camera on.The lens is off and no obsrtuctions

The camera sensor must have detected an obstruction, or at least the logic board did not get the message the lens is in its working position. Could be, because it is really not in the correct place, but also there could be something wrong with the detection logic. In both situations, the best you can do is resetting the camera, by removing the battery and memory card for a few moments. (while yu have the battery and memory card out, please check is all contacts on the battery and memory card are clean and shiny) and then reinsert both. Switch the camera on again. When the error returns, I suggest you contact a Fuji certified repair centre, or start saving for a new camera.

Fix read error sd card

Not sure you tried all the things I should do.
Be sure the cards are formatted, and try to format them in the camera.
But before you put in any card, check with a bright light close to the memory card slot, if all the contacts are clean and free, Just a little bit of dust or paper on one contact, could spoil all the fun. The contacts should be clem and shiny. All straight and to one side, Not one can be a little bent. If someone ever pressed a memory card in the camera the wrong way around, a lot of damage should be seen down there with some contacts bent or broken.
And be sure you did not switch all the cards to the lock position.

Canon powershot s90 wont turn on. used it and took pics and it worked fine. shut it off. went to use it a day later and dead. new batteries didnt help.

If you already tried a second battery with no luck, you'll need to have it serviced. If the camera is over a year, the manufacturers warranty is up. If that's the situation, go to this site All they deal with are Canon Powershot cameras and they do excellent work, the best part is they are much cheaper than Canon. They do really great work on the Canons. That's were a lot of people go for help with the Powershot models.

Dear Sir Panasonic NV GS-22 Firewire (i.Link IEEE 1394) , USB My camcorder firewire socket got a little damaged and needs to be replaced, am I able to repair. Regards Stephen...

Generally, not a hope! (unless you're a fully equipped Panasonicv registered repairer)
In what way was the socket damaged?
If you can afford it check with a Panasonic repair service but balance the price they'll quite you with the price of getting a new camera with at least a year's guarantee.

My Dimage x60(Konica Minolta) lens cover does not turn the camera off in the closed position. I can only turn camera off by removing the battery.

I had the same problem. Great little camera and never used it for a long time because of this very thing. Finally took it apart to have a look tonight and there's a very delicate switch which was stuck in the on position. I fiddled with it and finally managed to break it completely (!). I think it was just old and worn out. I ended up prising the silver cover off the switch - you really need a strong light and a good quality (jewellers) monacle to do this as the switch really is tiny - and supergluing the thing back together in the on position. Best I could do so now I'm back at square one but I don't know how long it'll last.
In short - best to live with it as it is as it's so easy to break (and not so easy to fix again).

Will not auto focus

There is a switch on the top of the camera that has your focus modes. switch to C-AF for Continuous auto focus. If you have it set to MF - Manual Focus that would explain this easily.
