    The camera screen goes blank after a few pictures and the shutter is locked out. The picture taken just prior to the screen going blank is not stored on the chip. If I hit the power button the camera seems to function back to a normal screen but as soon as I press the shutter button the screen goes blank and the camera freezes up.

    Loaded with fresh batteries the camera turns on and is able to focus. As soon as a photograph is taken the lcd screen turns black and on restarting the camera the image has not been stored. This problem started intermittently and is now all the time. Any solution would be gratefully received

    Similar problem... It seems to be going through batteries, rechargable originals, other rechargable, or new alkalines, very fast and with very limited shelf life for batteries in camera. I may or may not get a low batter warning when taking a picture and the camera will shut off. Also, no picture is taken. The lense will stay out, but I can turn the camera back on and the lense will move. Further attempts to take a picture also fail with the same results.

    Yup, same thing here. Focuses then turns black after shutter is pressed.

This sounds like there is an internal short which is draining the batteries as soon as you put them in. Were the cameras taken in from the cold to a warm room? that will cause internal condensation which can fry the interior. Clean out the battery compartment completely, be sure no metal is floating around in there, and be sure that you have the polarity of the batteries correct. If that doesn't help, send the camera back to Fuji if in warranty.

There is something wrong with my flash screen. It's Black. Everytime I try to take pictures on My Finepix z fujifil blue digital camera the screen goes black, and when I go to see what I took a picture...

Flash screen? What? You mean even in pictures with flash disabled (and the flash does drag down the electronics in the thing; make a replacement using an LED lamp and circuit if you have a chance) it takes no picture and leaves you with a black LCD? Are you indeed using a good battery (they go bad gradually (depending on the case on how many times you fire the flash!)) New battery first!

My mouse has new batteries in it, the light comes on but it doesnt move the cursor on the screen or click. I noticed the light by the sensor is on until i set it down to use it then it goes off. Anyone...

Should be a way to "synchronize" the mouse to the sensor. Look for a small button underneath the mouse and a button on the sensor-sometimes you have to press them at the same time, sometimes you just have to press one then the other.

Hope this helps!

The laptop doesn't boot up always.

I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking

This should be a quick fix. Try resoldering the vertical IC. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 11 pins. It should be marked LA7837 or something similar. That should resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.

Tried turning on my Sony and no picture no sound, just a black screen

Sony is known for having problems with the picture tube. Sometimes it will blink on and off. also bad connections on the main board. A CRT restorer will sometimes help with picture tube problems but this must be done by a tech that has one.
