Re: my camera

It means that the wiring between the flash and control botton has failed. you have to take it back to the shop to be repaired.

Need to replace flash

The flash is not consumer-replaceable. You will need to have it serviced and it will be very expensive.

Camera model: panasonic FS3 Lumix cannot remove memory card. know how to remove battery. memory card seems stuck or I don't know the trick to remove

Turn the camera off first.
To remove the memory card you have to push it down a bit, you may hear a little 'click' and as you let go the card will pop up a bit.
Then you can pull it out.

Let me know. Thanks.

The problem is in a digital camera Panasonic Lumix model FS5. When I start the camera appears a message that say: Please turn camera off and the then on again. When I restart the camera this message...

Sounds like you're experiencing a lens error. The camera is having difficulty extending the lens. Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W310 I trun it on it reads Turn the power off and on again WhenI do this it still reads the same thing

It seems you're having problems with the lens sticking (either not retracting or retracting then coming out then going back again, etc.) This "off, then on" problem is caused by some little cogs around the lens that easily slip out of place in this camera. The camera has trouble sensing if the lens is in or out, which is why it keeps asking you to turn it off then on again.

One solution is to give the camera a firm tap around the lens area. I don't necessarily recommend that since those cogs in there are obviously delicate. Other than that, repair is going to require opening up the camera and setting those little things back into place. I know that isn't the answer you wanted to hear, but it seems to be the only one.Please don't forget to rate me if satisfied.Thank you.

Focus works intermittently

You say intermittent start up issue. So it is occasional and eventually settles down. Could be a lens contact not quite making it. Have you tried removing the lens and refitting? You also address the problem to Olympus Tech Support- may be something they know about
