Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Camera stopped working

My camera worked fine (minus the 2-3 minutes it takes to load up) until a week or so ago. Now when you go to take a picture it's either a blank green screen or something that looks like if you were to mix the night vision with the negative exposure and throw in some crazy static lines. The flash still goes off, and it will take a picture of either the green or static. I've tried a soft and hard reset and it's still not working.

Try taking the actual lcd screen of and put it back together.. Its 2 screws and you pull it out and then put it back in and re-assemble it. If you need a guide let me know.. IT might work or it might be an internal or software issue!

My aperture or lens isn't opening - can't take a picture. It worked fine a couple of weeks ago and when I tried to use it this week it was a no go.


Aperture and lens are two different things. If you mean the camera is taking black pictures (something common for the S5), then see this link.


But if you mean that the lens isn't extending properly, then see this video:

Nikon coolpix camera has lines


Hi,

You no need to fix this problem. This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall. Contact Nikon support-this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way. They will do it for free of cost.

Thank you !!

Vidoe option on camera used to work, but now: 640(fine) is not available


Hi

I think to work on 640 fine you need a much higher memory stick, I use a 2gb in mine and it is fine (that is when the camera works) .You get 24 minutes or more on the 2gb stick and that is at 640 fine.

Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once. Take the camera back for exchange with your retailer if this does not correct the problem.

When using the zoom button the cam stops working


This suggests the zoom motor has failed. As you only purchased it 2 weeks ago - it should be replaced under warranty

Samsung Digimax V4 Power Consumption


I had similar symptoms as well until it finally died: 1) First started eating batteries like crazy, especially standard AA and rechargeables. The CRV3 seemed to work a bit longer. 2) One day out of nowhere the autofocus stopped working. I replaced the batteries and it worked again for 10 shots. Then the autofocus stopped working and battery died (with the lens stuck open). Pressing power, the LCD backlight flashes on, the LED in the view finder blinks, and the lens motor makes noise. Then nothing just stuck open. 3) Again new batteries and was able to close lens, take a few pictures and dead again with lens stuck open - same problem in 2. 4) Replaced the batteries a couple times and was able to get a shot or two off, and now its complete stuck open, even with brand new batteries - with same problem in 2 it just won't turn on. I finally sent it to Samsung the week of Christmas. I called Friday 1/7/05 to check and had to leave a voicemail. They called back Monday 1/10/05 to let me know they recieved it and that I should call back Thursday to check its status.
