Question about Canon PowerShot G2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

G-2 Power Shot no longer closes completely

Without any mishandling, except maybe lack of use, my G-2 no longer closes completely. It will open up and takes normal pictures, but I can no longer put the cap on the camera. The lens sticks out about a fourth of an inch or less. Please help. Thanks

I had the same problem with my G1 and it seems that with time and with usage of the cam it ends up doing this, i solved my problem moving it back and forth but slowly and then try to push it softly ..then turn it of and on ..and it will go in.., suddenly it will happen the same thing again and again.. because mine still does that some times

Does a car run cooler without a thermostat?


No don't because when it closes it gives time for the coolant in the radiator to cool, and when the thermostat opens it would allow the cooled water to come into the block pulling down the temp. If you take it out your warm up time in cooler weather will cause you to run rich for a longer time before car warms up messing up your mileage too. Maybe better to just replace it, it may be going bad.

I am tiring to install a GE touch auto shut-off timer, I have 2 wires in the wall 1 black & 1 white, the switch has 4 wires (1 green[ground?], 1 blue, 1 black & 1 white) when I try to follow the...


You might not be able to use that switch in your configuration. It appears that the power was run to the light and only two wires were run back to the switch. The old switch only closes to connect those two wires completing the circuit at the lighting fixture, but you need a hot and a neutral to operate the electronic switch that you have.

If your fridge is left open over night and it wasnt closed till morning and the alarm light does stop flashing when it is closed what does that mean?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

FYI... The door alarm will sound anytime the door is left open for more than 4 minutes.

Per your post... What it means your refrigerator is working normally.

However... there is the possibility of having excess ice build up on the evaporator coils from the door being open all night. If the freezer section starts warming up due to poor airflow you may have to do a manual defrost. You would first notice the lack of ice production or soft ice cream if there were air flow problems due to excess ice on the evaporator coils.

To do a manual defrost all you do is:
1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove freezer contents
3. Use a fan directed at the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours (makes a water mess)
4. Reload the freezer
5. Plug in the refrigerator

Everything should be back to normal in just over 4 hours except ice production that can take up to 8 hours.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My 3 month Motorolla Droid cell phone has some sort of backlight LCD bleeding. The phone functions normally, it's just the screen has grayish/blackish smudge lines going across the screen and you can see...


Hello,

there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

I wish you good luck.

My screen is no longer clear. The picture is


Has your camera been left in a damp environment for a while. Or maybe was slighlty wet when you last used it. Perhaps the moisture has found it's way into the lens and it's clouded like steam or maybe the CCD which is the part which takes the light and converts it into electrical signals is on it's way out. I assume you've been through all your menus and checked nothing is switched to where it shouldn't be? Although off hand I can't think of a settting which would cause that problem. Check that you can take pictures both indoors and out without a large drop in picture brightness with the indoor shots. If this is OK it would rule out Iris problems. Have a look into the lens and see if it looks smoky or misty. If it does it could be moisture or even mould.

The grainy appearance could be the gain ciruitry of the camera compensating for lack of light and boosting you AGC. Whichever way we look at it I'm positive a trip to the repair shop is in order. Try to take it to an authorized Canon repairer if you can.

Good luck

Kenmore 790.49073400 oven door won't close completely


Hello- You are on the right track. The hinge assemblies are 'sprung' or bent out of shape. Replacing them is pretty easy, so you can do it yourself. Four screws on each side. Be careful, these springs can snap closed and bite ya. Use the little pins that come with the new set to lock hinge so this doesn't happen. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Viewing screen is completely blank and will not take pictures


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
