Re: Ricoh caplio r3 digital camera.

This has happened to me a couple of times. It appeared when the camera was getting a lot of use and it wouldn't turn off - it was jammed on. I had to leave it a few minutes and not touch it - turn it off, then it was ok. I think it was overheated!

Ricoh Caplio R3 display dark

I diagnosed this one. When I plugged in the AV cable the display was coming up on TV screen so figured it must be a power supply to the camera's display. Found a broken solder joint and fixed it!!
The camera is not worth spending money or time on repairs. Last time it stuffed out within guarantee time, it needed to go to Hong Kong and took 3 months to return.

Bright flash on caplio R3 digital camera

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES there is a solution if that is the r3 thing. There is a menu button and the menu button has four arrows around it right??? Yeah, well, press the arrow pointing west to change the flash's power. And if that doesnt work just press the up button instead and that should bring you to a menu or something where you can change what kind of picture the camera will take. At least, thats what i think...

Camera jam

All the R series Ricohs have a pretty complicated lens system employing 2 swing-out lenses which can get stuck pretty easily, or worse, broken. If you are very good at taking things to bits you might have a go at fixing it (I've done several that were not TOO bad) since picking up one on Ebay with a good lens unit is almost impossible.
