DSC W80 Error Message - Zoom and Picture Doesn't work


There is something blocking the sensors for the lens position. This can something as small as a piece of sand. The motors and gears that move the lens are very small and delicate. You can send it in for repairs to www.unitedcamera.com

Finepix gives message to turn off then on again. keeps foping it no matter what.


It may be your lens cap. If the lens cap is on, the lens cannot extend, so the camera will give you notice to turn the camera on and then off again (assuming you know that you must remove the lens cap before turning on again. If your lens cap is off, check to see if there is anything else blocking the lens or impeding it from extending.

I have a Sony KP57ws500 that the screen turns green and then goes into standby. then when in standby the standby light flashes eight times then pauses and then flashes eight times again in this pattern...


This is a simple fix and not hard to do, first you must get the speaker grill off, usaly two screws on the bottom and they might be hidden under to caps, then remove the acsess cover from the front. From there you should see a control box with six controls, three on top of three,,,,One part label "screen" the other "focus" now turn the set on and tune to a input that HAS NO SIGNAL this should give you a black pix, probley not now but it's supose to be black. Now turn the ones marked screen , one at a time counter clockwise just a little to get the pix compleatly black, now starting with one color turn the control slowly clockwise till the color just appears then turn it back down till it just disapears (Black) do this for all three colors Now the set should runn

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.

Well let see if we can talk you thu "grayscaling " a set, first remove the speaker grill and the front cover to expose the screen/focus controls these will be six controls mounted on a plastic looking box, next turn the set on and get a good signal, Then from the custmer menu simpley go the the pix settings and turn the color all the way down, next use the screen controls to make the pix the best black and white you can. Next turn to a input that has no signal and the pix should be black, if there are small retrace lines simply turn down that color till it goes away , then back to a signal source that should still have a good black and white pix. Put everything back together and turn the color back up

Try it with a different set of battery. It is possible that one of your battery is "dead" or close to it, and the camera shuts down.

You have to find the bad battery.

It worked for me.

NECVOX RE-8169DVD ' No Disc' Error Message


Hi

I think you can see the lens of the DVD's laser.  If so get some glass cleaner, and a Q-tip.  Dampen one tip of the Q-tip with the glass cleaner and clean the laser lens.  Use the dry end of the Q-tip to dry the lens
