It uses a 2CR5 battery, which should be available at most electronics or office-supply stores. An online source is at http://www.batteriesplus.com/product/31018-RAYRL2CR5--1-Lithium-Battery/563-0/4739-Film-Camera-Battery/56279-Minolta/Maxxum-400si.aspx

It has a Minolta A-mount lens. Any of the newer Minolta (and some Sony) lenses may be used. The older Minolta lenses for the SRT-series cannot be used.

Cant get my pictures downloaded onto my computer from the card reader


On the front, where the camera lens is, is the door you can open to take out the battery if it will not turn off. Hold the camera upside down, and use your thumbs to force the door to side off - it's not always easy to do. Push from the lens, toward the "Vivitar" name.
I have the same model, and mine just started doing this last month, and I've had it for almost 2 years now. Maybe it's just not recognizing the Off command from the button like it used to. I don't know. But taking the battery out always kills it. Then, put the battery back in (correctly) to use the cam again.

My Kodak V705 has Error #45 lcd cant come so that i can take pictures?says see user's guide what should i do?


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The Actual reason stated my Kodak behind this error is the e45 error denotes that it's time to repair your camera. It's also indicative of a lens retraction. It could be that your battery is long in the tooth and doesn't have enough capacity anymore to adequately power the camera. Lithium Ion batteries do lose capacity over time and going on 3 years, a simple replacement of the battery could solve the issue.
Also try to turn off the Cam, remove the memory card/any accessory attached to the Cam, remove the battery, clean the contacts, then reinsert the battery and turn on the Cam. Absent that, a repair is required.
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

Panasonic SD5 won't focus after being dropped. Have turned it off and on...removed battery etc. Got message to reset, have done that several times. It will record but only very blurry unrecognizable...


Hi Violet. I'm afraid I don't have any good news about this kind of problem, and I'll tell you why. When the cam won't focus, it's usually a problem with the lens assembly, and the fact that you can't zoom verifies that. There are a lot of small plastic parts in the lens assembly that can break easily, or get jammed. When that happens, service is required on the unit, to replace the broken part, or reset the assembly, but often they just replace the whole lens assembly. Is it still under some kind of warranty? In that case, I would have to looked at. If you do choose to get it fixed, and you have no warranty, get an estimate first. Repair costs can be high, and at that point you have to decide whether to repair it, or get another cam. Wish I had better news for you, but hope this helps in your decision of what to do next. Good luck, and be careful, these cams are great, but delicate!

My screen is blank can not see anything


do you have the lens cover open? do you get any error code or warning message? do this: make sure you have fully charged battery. close the lens cover.make sure cam is off.open lens cover by sliding it down until click is heard.if no go.close lens cover.make sure cam is off.remove the battery from cam for at least 15secs.reinsert battery.open lens cover until you hear the click.if no go try this. can you see the operational buttons and icons on the screen? if you do try to initialize the camera. touch HOME ->settings (looks like a toolbox icon) -> Main Settings (touch OK) -> [Initialize] -> [OK]. if it doesn't work service might be required.thanks :)

When i turn the camera on, the lens extends out from the camera and immediately retracts, turning the camera off. the battery is charged fully. the camera is a casio exilim ex-z300


you might have put your camera down which would have caused the lens array to be damaged.please take your cam to the nearest service center.please do not try to disassemble your camera unless you know how to do it.
i am telling this because most of the people try to change the defected part alone after getting the new one through eBay. this causes the cam to be de-calibrated affecting the performance as well as the quality.so, my kind advice is to take it to the nearest service center and if its within one year of purchase, it is free of service charge.
thanks.

It happens when you open the lens


Hi!
It's a stabilized problem - happens to these cameras. You should contact your local Sony service center and ask how much will cost lens replacement. If they ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

Focusing web cam


I'm not sure what the rest of your sentence says about "but they see us...)
Most Web Cams have a lens that can be turned right or left to focus the lens. Have them view you and adjust the lens both ways to see if that helps. If you can view yourself and its clear it may not help adjusting the lens. But its worth a try. Hope it helps. Bud

Slider Prob


Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle position. It sounds like it is stuck in some spot between close and idle. Since it cant reach the closed position or idle its shutting down. The only way to get it to work is to try and free the lens so it can cycle threw. There must be a lip on the slider and the lens is stuck on this lip so you cant slide it. Remove the batteries then try and slide the door open try and slide somthing between the lens and the door to free it up. This is the only way to get it threw the cycle. It may need to be serviced It sounds like the switch for the slider door is warn or has broken. It may work again if you can free the lens.
