My Nikon D5100 has been fell in water, did any one faced such case and what is the recommended place for repaire in Egypt?

there are special repair centres fir water damage. Not sure you can find one close to you. You could try to put the camera in a bag of rice, and contact a Nikon certified service centre immediately. First ask them if they can repair and then what it will cost. Could be expensive, so i think you should start saving for a new camera.

Battery door metall batterry connectors fell out

When you can't close the battery door as it should be closed, you can't turn on the camera. In almost all digital cameras there is a protection switch, that prevents the camera to work, with an open battery door, because the camera could stop any moment when the battery comes loose. When the camera was accessing the memory, when it falls without power, the memory can be damaged and you could loose all the pictures saved on the memory card.
I'm afraid, when the battery door came out, some things are missing, like a spring, axel and perhaps some other little metal or plastic things. To come out, some mechanical damage must be there, so it won't be easy to reinstall the door yourself.
Bet thing you can do is show it in a service centre and ask if it can be repaired and what it will cost.
Service manuals, with pictures about all parts, are only sold to approved repair centres.
The only chance to find anything, is on ifixit dot com, because they have manuals and videos of lots of electronic stuff for free.
Repair over there is on your own risk.

My camera lens won't move. I recently was out on a photoshoot with friends, and I ended up falling down with the camera in my hand while the lens was extended. At first it didn't move at all, but I got the...

I am sorry to say that this is a problem related to the lens mechanism. The lens gears may have kinked/slipped when you fell down and this seems to be the reason why the lens cannot extend retrace. Unfortunately this is one repair that you don't wanna do yourself. The lens assembly has to be completely disassembled just to know the exact cause of the problem and any further damage means a new camera. Panasonic will charge you the cost of a new cam to fix it. So to get an estimate from your local camera tech would be the way to go.

The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to Canon service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.

Thank you

When the camera is switched on it shows only memory card photos but in the camera mode it does not shoot photographs. I sent the camera to Canon Repair center, they told its optical assembly is faulty and...

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter (a.k.a. "faulty optical assembly") are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:

But if you notice shutter movement when you take a picture, then it's likely a failure of the CCD image sensor. If so, Canon WILL FIX THIS FOR FREE. This is a worldwide advisory for this issue. Go to, select "support" in the left column, then your region on the map. Continue on to select your country. Search your countries website for support of the A85, and any "important information regarding your camera". Included there should be the info regarding the free repair. It's important to ONLY CONTACT OFFICIAL CANON SERVICE CENTERS listed on this webiste. Non-official repair centers may charge you for the repair, and merely ship the camera to the official Canon center for the free repair.

Here's a sample of the advisory notice for the US.

Lines on screen and photos, too bright photos outside

Lines across your pictures or pictures too bright are due to the shutter not closing correctly or at all.
to check this- turn camera on, turn off flash, turn camera around and look into the lens. Adjust the zoom so that the shutter and internal lens comes up to the end of the lens and whatch as you take a picture. You should see the shutter close completely over the lens. If it doesn't move or does not close over completely then there is your problem.
If camera was dropped it could have jammed the shutter open or obstructed it in some way from closing completely.
camera will require repair/ service.
You may have some luck if you power up and down your camera numerous times before taking a picture. The action of the lens opening and closing may free the shutter.

Touch screen not functioning after falling down

the touch panel costs 1500 bucks if u give it in redington, chennai.
phone lock cost depends upon availability and the goodness of the service people. I got it changed for 115 rs. Board and socket connection, am not sure. But if u ask me, better buy a new one than spend this much amount.
