You need to explain what kind of camera you have and at what point in your use it fails.

SOURCE: Access Screen

Hello, When the camera shows this it tries to acces the lens mechanism, in terms of extending the lens and/or powering on the ccd sensor. Failure in doing so will result in an error code or simply by having the camera not showing anything else at all. Therefore the camera has a problem with the lens assembly. It's the most common problems with digital cameras. However this can only be solved in a service center because dissasembling the camera yourself will risk lens assembly damage, as they are very delicate equipment. I suggest you go to a service center, not the larger ones working for corporations, instead a smaller generic one. Ask them a price estimation before they actually repair it. Repairs may varry from a simple lens readjustment to the replacing of the whole lens assembly, this can get expensive on sony models. Please reply if you have further questions. Good luck with the fix and sorry for not being able to assist you with a quick fix.

Bad news & Good News

The BAD news is that it sounds as if your CCD has gone wrong which is the part of the camera that captures the image. The CCD is made by Sony & there is alot of dodgey ones out there that Sony have said sorry about. (type "bad CCD" on a search engine & you should be able to get more info)
You say that the icons appear so the rear LCD must be working. If the playback of pictures from a card also works then it is almost certainly the CCD at fault.

The GOOD News is that your model is one of the ones that is listed as eligible for a free replacement of the CCD. You will need to contact Canon & they will advice of what to do. I have sent several cameras of different makes back to the agents for repair & all have been repaired for free. The fault you have first occurred a few years back now so there will probably be a point where the agents will say enough is enough & stop the free repairs.
Hopefully you will be eligible for the free replacement.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: looking to reset to original factory settings

On the camera's menu system, under Setup2, look for the option titled "Clear Settings". When selected, you can either clear just the Custom Settings, or you can clear all camera settings, which restores it to the factory defaults.

There may be another "reset" in the menu that will do what you want. Search for it.

My ZEKI android tablet keeps saying that unfortunately system UI has stopped working what do i do?

You can try pulling the battery then reinstall it and restart the unit. If that doesn't clear the problem go to settings, and then applications and look for UI and clear the cache and data. If that fails you can try to do a factory reset.

Camera turns on, LCD screen works, lens goes in and out when zooming and I can change all other settings. When I try to take a picture the camera beeps and nothing happens.

It looks that your rechargeable battery inside your camera is about to die. Try to connect your camera to your laptop with USB cable or with the one that comes with the camera and see if camera is working properly. If not - replace the battery.

Flash stopped working even when it pops up

Try going into the settings, look for something called "factory settings /factory reset) This will not erase the pictures on your memory card. But it will set up the camera the way it is soposed to be. If this does not work, the flash is propably burned out. Best of Luck !

Flash stopped working

Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead

Flash stopped working

Have you tried to reset the camera to its factory defaults to see if it is a setting that is causing the flash not to fire? To reset the camera go to the menu left arrow to reset - highlight yes and press ok. This will set the camera back to factory settings. See if the flash fires now. If it does then, good. If not, then it is a repair issue with the flash assembly internally in the camera.
