    When I turn the camera on I can take only 1 picture,it won't let me take another until I turn the camera off and on again.Wich means I can only take 1 picture at a time.

Ours is doing the same thing except we aren't in warranty. Had the camera 6 months and Sanyo wants $85 to fix it. I'll never buy Sanyo again. Take it back while you still can.

    Forgot to add I've taken the camera apart but can't get to the part of the camera where the shuttuer button is making contact. So far no luck fixing this myself. Any ideas?

I have the samsung continuum. 2 days ago i dropped it into a glass of coke. Everything was fine except that the camera comes up every 5 seconds and takes a picture. Also you know that thing that comes up...

Sounds like the buttons are stuck together. You could attempt to open it and clean it, but that will probably void the warranty. You could take it to a licensed store, or you could send it back for repairs.

Memory Error appears on screen

Just had this problem myself. What you do is press the Mode button twice until it shows a black background with the words Memory Error on top of it (this should be the picture preview mode). Then press the Menu button and press the 4-way button right to enter the Setup Menu. Go down and Format the camera and that will fix it.

Good luck.

Canon ixus 80 IS LCD problem


It's possible that you may have accidentally pressed the DISP button to disable the LCD. Please try to press the DISP button after you switch on the camera. If the display does not show up on the first press, try pressing the button twice or until the LCD turns on.


Please let me know if it fixed the problem. If it doesn't, we'll try other options.

Good luck and have a nice day!

My camera won't turn on

Hey GClooney,
Most cameras come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty so the first camera is most likely covered by this and I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. If you dropped you Polaroid a300 camera then there is most likely internal damage and that should also be addressed by an authorized service technician. I will say that digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the camera, but the first camera repair would most likely be covered by its warranty. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Canon a 620 flash

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Many many problems

This camera has had problems with the operations deck assy, this is the controller that inputs customer commands. Nikon is repairing many of these at little or no charge to the customer depending on the age of the camera. I would call them first to see if they will take care of this for you. Good Luck!
