Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

WE bought a camera 2 years ago. We had a problem with the lens and we sent it back for repair the first year. And ever since then it had gotten worse. Spots on the camera and more. It barely get used and it is so frustating because it Cost 300 at the time we bought it. It is not right for this to happen. And I need to talk to someone that could help us.

First i suggest you go to a law shop for free advise, ask them if consumers law says something about these kind of goods.

here in holland there is a law witch says that you may expect that a camara of $ 300 (assuming dollar) should at least last 5 years at normal operation (read : use)

than write a letter by your lawyer that tells them that they have done a lousy job and give them a reasonable time (lets say two weeks) to reply and come with a sollution , than if they don't let something know , write a letter that you a planning to use your rights and sue them if they don't give you a good wordking camera .. the rest is op to your lawer

Hi. I have a Fujifilm A235 12.2 MP which I bought around 1 year ago. Once I tried to switch it off and it told me "Focus error". From that day on the lens would not move in and out as usual and I...


Hello

Unfortunately a "focus error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

Easy share V1253...will not stay on...lens will not telescope


I have had the same issue were the lens would not retract. took it in for extended warranty work. lens now retracts but takes lousy pictures.

When I purchased this camera family members ran out and bought thiers shortly after I did. One by one the same issue has happend to their v1253's.

I dissmantled one and found that there is a tiny battery on the power board inside of the camera. apparently the tiny battery's life is about 1 1/2 years. This battery is not serviceable as it is welded in place. I am not one hundred percent sure if this is the cause but it makes sense.

It would be nice if kodak would own up to this issue and make good on repairs as they did with my kodak 5500 all-in-one printer and it's crappy print head. Kodak has sent me 4 print heads in the 2 years I have owned it.

I have 5 of the v1253's in my family and every one of the are dead. I would think a $250 product should last longer than 1 1/2 years.
Hope this helps you out.

Switching off as if battery is depleted when the battery is newly charged


I called Pentax and they said it's a known problem and the lens needs to be re-synchronized. They said this is usually caused by dust in the lens.

I have to send the camera to : -
Pentax U.K. Limited
Pentax House
Heron Drive
Langley
Slough
SL3 8P

It's a free repair if you bought the camera less than a year ago o/w they will send you a quote for the repair.

So the lens is dislocated. Sometimes it's possible especially on canons to set the lens by twisting on it while pulling, when the lens is extended or partially extended (the camera has to be off for that). In most cases though the camera may need to be partially disassembled and lens housing loosened before it can be set.

Lens issue with my Casio EX-Z50


I don't believe a "lens error" can be fixed at home. That is something that is going to have to be sent in. Sometimes if repairing the camera costs more than what it's worth Casio will offer you a trade up to a different model. Call the repairs dept and ask them about that program. Their number is 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 1.
