The ccd sensor must be broken, you'll probably need a new lens assembly. The repair cost will be halft of what the camera sells for. There is a service that specializes on small consumer level cameras like that : <a rel='nofollow' href=http://www.portatronics.com>Camera Repair NYC</a>

My nikon D5200 seems as if its flash and shutter speed is out of time resulting in my photos being to dark to see or to bright to see


check to make sure auto bracketing is not turned on. Otherwise send it to Nikon as it is under warranty (assuming you didn't drop it etc)

I droped my cooplix l25 ,the power button is broken and my cooplix l25 wont turn on


Well this just does not sound like you are having a good day !! This is nothing more than bad news, You broke your camera and as if this is not bad enough it is going to cost you more to fix it than it will cost to replace it. So just go ahead and buy another camera and save the repair money.

Dropped my Nikon D60 on concrete and now it is taking dark photos! I reset it to manufacture settings but still taking dark photos even outside in the middle of the day. Any suggestions on what it could...


This is not a do it yourself project. Call the Nikon Service Department at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday. They will tell you how to return your camera for repair and will provide you with an estimate of charges.

Even if I could tell you what you broke without looking at your camera, which I cannot, you would not be able to do the repair yourself. Call the Nikon Service Department at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday. They will tell you how to proceed to get a repair estimate.

Sony cybershot t300 lcd screen remains dark when switched on


Hi,
Your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. If the problem is due to your dropping the camera, you might be out of luck.
If you have not dropped your camera and still facing this problem, then contact service people to replace the CCD imager in your camera .

Hope this helps .

Kodak dx7630 Dark Photos


first of all, this is not a solution. i think your camera's problem almost same with mine. i think your inner lens of your camera isn't totally opened, and it is same with my camera, which is cannot opened at all, maybe you dropped it or exposed it to water. if you go to kodak web site they suggest that you must take it back to the factory.
