    I tried turning it on in another mode and went into the menu but couldn't find an option to reset anything. My digi cam is a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-L1.

    I checked the lens and it's stuck! I can push it open but not closed. How did this happen an is there a way to fix it that won't cost me too much?

    Ok, so i figured out how to get it to take pics. I just have to push the lens open before i turn the camera on and push it closed after the power is off. I can do this but i would still like to fix the problem if there is a way.

Try this:
Turn on the camera in another mode.
Go to the menu.
Find the option to reset ALL.

This may fix this problem, because you can the get the camera working.

If there is a lens problem, this same message may come up. Check to make sure your lens is working correctly.

If nothing is wrong with the camera, the battery is placed correctly, the battery cover is closed correctly then only one thing can be wrong. Even when you don't believe it is possible, the battery can be flat again.
So to make sure everything is as you think. Charge the battery again, and look if the charger acts as usually. The charging lamp turns orange and charging begins. When the charging is finished, the lamp turns green. Last time you charged, it could have taken 4 hours, before the lamp went green. If the battery is recently charged, it only will take a fraction of that time. If it still takes a long time, your battery was empty. It is recommended, to charge not longer than for 24 hours. After charging, please wait till the battery is cooled down. Then insert it again and close the battery cover. Check the cover closes correctly. And now switch on again.
If you charged with an USB cambs connected to the camera. Don't forget to remove the cable, because the camera won't start as long as an USB cable is connected.

How can I get the pictures to print with the date and time stamp on them. They show up on the pictues in the playback mode, but are not on the actual picture when I print them and they are somewhat...


Sadly the new Digi-cams don't have this feature any more. If you have the pictures printed by a professional developer they can impose the date on your photos.

Olymp c-5000 won't turn on red/ yellow lights blink/ beep 20 time


Furrybutts (hehehe, like the name), This could be a lot of things and I'm sure there's a service guide out there that will tell us what 20 beeps and flashing lights mean, as I don't have one, let's figure it out.
Firstly, digi-cams and rechargables, eerrrrrgggg (Mr Burn's shudder) yeah they 'work', but for trouble shooting and iffy times, lets look at some half desent NEW alkaline batteries - for about $3-$4, it's worth it for this troubleshoot.
OK, did they work?, No?, lets look at the memory card. The cards are supporsed to be only put in one way, but ... lets take out the card, clean the contacts with a clean cloth/tissue, and put the card back in being sure it's in the right way. Still no go?
Take the card out again and try and turn the camera on without the card. Any changes?
This camera uses an XD memory card. I can't remember if it has an internal memory - what we're looking for is whether the memory is damaged and the camera is happy using it's internal memory or still erronous with no memory. Do you have access to another XD card to try it (this camera will take a MAXimum of 512mb, so don't try and card bigger).
Lets leave it at this for now and you let me know how things are going?

**.The best way to acknowledge contribution is to rate it's relevance.**

DMC-FX01 Flash Does Not Work


In what mode are you trying to take photos? The flash will not work in certain modes (see the manual), for example the night mode. Or you accidentialy turned on sequential/burst mode (this is mode where camera takes more pictures on one shutter button press). Flash cannot be used in this mode also. I don't have FX01, but on FZ8 the camera will show flash icon in red, but will take the picture anyway without flash being triggered. The second problems seems like enabled power-saving mode, but those 5 seconds are too short for this. But anyway you can check in SETUP menu the settings for power-save. Also maybe the flash is broken and camera noticed it... I don't think this could be a software problem. Either problem with the flash, but more probably just setting of wrong mode.

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.

PC-Cam 300 no longer functions as a digital camera


Let's do a hardware reset on the player: Press Snapshot button and Operational mode button simultaneously for more than two seconds this will delete all the files from the camera. A beep sound is heard when the memory is cleared and LCD displays zero. This may get the camera working again.
