    I bought my camera from another individual- they had no information for me. Is there an 800 number to contact Polaroid for recall information?

You may want to check with Polaroid to see if there's a service advisory pertaining to faulty CCD chips that effect LCD operation. Most camera manufacturers got a bad batch of these chips and are repairing them at no cost.

Another option is to reset your camera and use recommended batteries.

My Canon PowerShot SD880 IS has a black display screen. I cannot take pics now with the black screen, but the display DOES work for pics taken before the screen went black. Please help!

I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem. I found one posting elsewhere that said that this was a "common" problem. That person's camera was under warranty. Mine isn't, but it's less than 2 years old.

My wife's Nikon L12 pocket camera suddenly has an autofocus issue

my advice is to throw it away and go buy a better quality camera.....seriously. I bought one of those cameras and traveled to Brazil......same thing happened to me. When I returned to USA and inquired about this issue, the warranty was out by 10 days, and it would cost more to fix the camera than I originally paid for it. I was P.O'd...

My samsung digimax 503 has a white screen!

Oh my gosh this really works! Our screen went white, we hadn't dropped it or anything. The camera still worked fine but we just couldn't see what we were taking a picture of. We tried this solution and now we can see the picture through the screen perfectly. THANKS for posting this!

Telescoping lens problem

Hi, Tosty I have had this problem for what seems like a couple of years now. I simply turn the camera on, pull the lens out with my fingernail a little, and then grab the OUTER telescoping ring and turn it gently counterclockwise until it locks into position. When you turn the camera off, turn the Outer ring gently CLOCKWISE and help it retract and turn off. I have been operating like this for quite a while. Now I have the dreaded "Black Screen" problem. If I'm reading the postings correctly, I think the internal shutter is locked closed and I need to take the camera apart (keeping track of all the tiny screws!!) and attempt to unlock the shutter. Good luck!
