Error code ch


One of your covers is not closed. Sometimes they look closed but really are not. I would start with the right side cover the latches on those brake all the time. Just use a piece of scotch tape to hold it shut if the latch is broken.

Sony HDR-XR200 lens cover problem


You have two options, replace the motor that opens and closes the lens cover or remove the lens cover shutters all together, and use a 30mm lens cap.

Problem with canon a420 digicam


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.

Note that your camera will not be able to take 15 second exposures, as per the above "fix". Instead, place the camera in manual mode, turn off the flash, and take the exposures in a darkened room. This should give you a couple seconds, just enough time to open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are flashing.

Rear projection tv picture quality loss


most of these sets have 3 lens for the three picture tubes inside and also a mirror---if it has never had the lens cleaned they could be dusty and this will diminish the brightness and clarity of your picture---if real dirty the picture will look washed out------most of these sets you can remove the back cover(unplug set first) and gain access to the lens ; clean them with a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner.

Fotos are white


Try the video. Is it ok?
Adjust the zoom so the internal lens is up close to the outside lens. Now, look into the lens at an angle so you can see into the lens without reflection. With the flash "off" so as not to blind you take a picture and watch the shutter close over the lens. Did it cover the lens? If not then something is obstructing it or there is an electrical failure with the electro magnetic switch operating the shutter.

Broken cover on a Fuji FinePix S5000


I think it will stay closed with painters tape or gaffer tape. this type of tape is blue or black. it is strong but not super sticky. I also have the same camera. my battery cover broke after the strap got stuck on a door handle to my office and the door kinda crunched it.

Cant see images through camera


Try removing the lens cap, sometimes it's just that easy. Be sure you have fresh DV tape in camera, and the setting is set to camera/tape.

Canon Powershot SI screen goes black after taking a photo


That sounds like a sticky lens shutter. They usually have to be replaced, as they usually will need parts. When the camera is working look inside the lens and take a picture(with flash turned off). You should see a black shutter door clicking shut in the lens. When the camera acts up, look inside the lens again. If the door is staying shut full time, that is your problem.

Lens cover closed


I'm just shooting in the dark, but have you tried taking the batteries out then putting them back in again. Also, you might want to look through the Sony website for an e-mail address that you could wite a question and/or ask for help/advice.
