When I got the camera out of the bag the lens were opened- battery dead-new battery didn't work. Can this camera be repaired since it probably got shorted.

    Well you figured it right I strongly presumed that I should throw it away and get another. Too bad it took good pictures. Best camer ever had. Thanks for confirming what I thought. The $6 was worth to confirm what I knew.

    Thanks

    bye.

Hi,

To begin with, this is an internal fault as you might have observed. Repair would not make any real sense as the cost of repair in this case would be more than $100 which is not worth the cost of the product. In case, if you have electronics repair experience, would be able to read schematics and could keep precautions, i could tell you where you could buy a service manual and provide you few pointers that might help you to fix the camera. Unless, the other option would be to pull out the battery and keep it in dry for few hours and see, if that works.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How do I remove the soda bottle cap, from the drive shaft end of a 2004 Saturn Vue V6 AWD, in order to remove the yoke, when replacing the carrier bearing.


Can you post a picture of this "bottle cap".. I think you are just seeing the splines (they can kinda resemble the rough crimpings' that a bottle cap has...
There should be nothing on top / on the end of the Midship splined stub shaft... You remove the hog-ring, and press the yoke off/over the spline. the spline and end yoke have a "dead spot" - which makes you keep the driveshaft in-phase during reassembly.. the dead spot is 2 splines that have been joined together at the end.. the end yoke will have a spline removed to accommodate this...
PS - soak the end yoke and spline liberally with PB Blaster.. Walk away..the longer the better... Then attempt to remove.. Good Luck!

Pepsi machine repair


It is not pc based like newer ones, no reset. A part needs repaired or replaced. Unplugging it is the closest thing to reset.

Spilled soda on a digital camera and now it won't take pictures. What can I do?


Most likely the some of the camera's electronics has been damaged.
The cost of repair may be a little less than a new camera. You can ask for a quote but they may charge for a quote unless you go ahead with the repair.
I recommend you put your money towards a new camera which most likely be better and may have more features that your old camers.
If the SD memory card is OK then you can use it as an addition memory card in the new camers.

Okay i got pepsi in my camera, so now when i put batteries in the green light turnson and stays on but nothing is displayed on the lcd.


There is nothing you can do. You've just got a sugary acidic liquid into your camera which has presumably partially dried by now.

Even if you could remove the sugar residues (difficult:you'd have to soak parts the camera in distilled water) there will still be residual damage caused by carbonic acid, and this will continue to corrode the camera circuitry for months. If you've used a sugar-free Pepsi variety, then there will be no sugar residue but the acid will still be present.

Sorry, but your camera is a write-off. Even a professional repairer would refuse to attempt fixing your camera: the cost would exceed the camera's value and the ongoing internal corrosion would make it likely what you'd soon return for warranty work which would make no money for the repairer.

There's only one thing you can try. Soak it it Coca-Cola...'Cos "Coca-Cola Adds Life".

That last bit WAS a joke...
