Re: On off switch works sporatically
Looks like you have the same problem as my Kodak. The contacts below the dial are getting worn and that's why it works intermittently. What I got for my Kodak was some electronic contact cleaner spray at Radio shack and gave it a blast. This worked for about one week and the problem returned. Other than spraying it forever, the mechanism needs the replaced. It's like an old radio with a scratchy sounding volume knob. The contacts are worn out. Time to get it replaced.

The Samsung S1050 is very battery hungry - make sure you use very fresh new batteries, rechargeable are great - the higher the mAh rating the better. I use Intec rechargeable batteries which are rated at 2900 mAh. If you do use rechargeables, you will have to set the appropriate menu setting for battery type to reflect the type of batteries used.
Try a new SD card. SD cards do fail. The socket inside the camera maybe no good - bad connections. The camera may have liquid damage - this causes all kinds of weird issues. I try the cards in my computer reader. If they can be used all day there (I load and unload stuff randomly all day to test and then put the card in a drawer for a few days and check what I loaded later), the fault is likely the camera.
Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture.
Your Canon A75 has distorted picture because of bad CCD Imager Sensor. You need to replace this part. Luckily Canon has announced free of cost repair scheme for such problem in few camera models. You can see details at Canon CCD Image Sensor Advisory.
Press the FN button under the toggle on right side of LCD screen. You will see white balance on left. Toggle down to the "flash" symbol". Should work a treat now. If not using flash go to FN again and raise ISO.(Don"t forget to go to Auto white balance again!!)
i've an fx8. i had a problem 2 weeks ago. my objective didn't want to close when i switched the camera off. it remained open. when i switched the camera on again, the objetcive has closed and opened again, and the _Turn Off the Camera and Turn On again_ message appeared on the sisplay. and remained in open position after switching it off.
i tried some button combination, like menu button on, and power the camera on. it didn't work, but the second was the shotting button on, power on combination. an it worked, my camera did some kind of reset. it returned to the original position, and everithing is working since then.
