Zoom switch malfunctions are common in these cameras and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I want to install yahoo stationery in my computer


Yahoo mail stationery My son loved this and I suppose you will too! There are over 100 free Yahoo mail stationery templates that you can use to send your messages. These have been segregated into categories so that you can quickly locate the one you want. In fact, the two versions of Yahoo Mail have different email stationery and there is also a difference in how they are applied. We shall first look at the new version (All-new Mail) and then explore Yahoo Mail Classic interface.
Using the free Yahoo email stationery in All-new Mail interfaceyahoo-mail-stationery-all-new-mail-interface.jpgThe free Yahoo email stationery is presented in a panel to the right displayed only when you create a new message or send a reply. The stationery can be applied to the message in a single mouse click. When the panel is first displayed it shows only the Featured stationery. Now you can either pick one immediately or check out others by clicking on "Featured" with the small downward arrow beside it. At the time of writing, in addition to Featured, there are 9 other categories - Abstract, Animals, Flowers, Fun, Holidays and Events, Nature, Patterns, Sports and Solid colors. All these, excepting the last one, include images. The Solid colors category lets you choose a single background color for your email message. You can also close the Yahoo! Stationery panel by clicking on its button.
Yahoo! Mail remembers the stationery you had last applied so you'll see the same one even if you log in after a few days - no need to waste time hunting for your favorite stationery! Also you can change the email stationery any time; at the start of new email message or when you have fully composed it. All you need to do it click on another layout and it will be applied instantly. However, please remember that different Yahoo mail stationery have different font style, colors and indentation.
Using Yahoo Mail stationery in the Classic versionClick on "Compose" button and choose "Email message". The page reloads with blank form fields awaiting your inputs. Make sure you have the "Rich Text" option on. Yahoo will not apply stationery to plain text emails. Rich text email composition displays a toolbar with many icons - the last one is for stationery. Clicking on it displays a pop-up with the Featured layouts. There are also other categories - Abstract/Patterns, Activities, Flowers/Romance, Nature, Hello Kitty, Special occasions and, of course, Solid colors. Click on a stationery thumbnail to have it applied to your email message and then close the pop-up window by hitting "Done".
Please note the stationery in Mail Classic is different from that in All-New Mail.
Can I create your own Yahoo Mail stationery?Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there is no way you can create your own stationery in Yahoo. However, there are more than 100 available including ones for Christmas, Valentine's Day, baby showers etc. which, I suppose, would be more than sufficient for your needs.
But with a little ingenuity you can create a sort of stationery template that would be quite unique. With solid colors along with styles for the text (an appropriate font and colors) you can come up with a nice looking layout. Take a look at the snapshot below in which I use a nice pink background and colored the heading and text in a different shade. The small rose image is an emoticon and the heart is an ASCII symbol which is displayed with the ALT-3[Num Pad] keystroke combination.

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 pictures never seem crisp and clear


TZ stands for Travel Zoom, which is code for Outside View shots. The TZ is supper in good light, not so much in lower light.

In side shots need to be with 8 feet of subject so the flash can reach. Use ISO and IS mode 2 settings, especially IS(Image Stabilization) on zoomed shots where ANY camera movement becomes amplified by the ZOOM.

Lastly, camera movement and/or subject movement will add blur to a shot. Squeeze off shot, don't push it off. Try to brace your camera against another object when possible, or hold you elbows against your sides when you can't. Treat taking a pic shot like you were taking a rifle shot. Stabilize yourself when possible and gradually squeeze off the shot when possible.

When low light cannot be avoided, try the night shot setting, which will keep the shutter open longer to gather more light, but will be much more venerable to camea movement at the same time.

Zoom button of canon elura minin dv


I had a similar problem. Searching Google for a solution, I came across the old -- "if it doesn't work, smack it" trick:

Remove any tape in the camera.
Remove the battery.

With your hand holding the top of camera, hit it firmly with a book on the bottom. I used about a 200 page paperback.

I suspect it is a electro-mechanical switch that gets stuck in the "On" position, and a little jolt frees it up again.

I have done this twice in the last month, and it works great.
