My camera is fine....I can view and delete photos but one you turn the dial to picture mode - message appears on the screen "turn camera off and on again". I also noticed that the lense (front part) isn't coming out as usual.

please help!!!

I can't believe that this actually worked, but I gently tapped the camera on a solid surface,and lo and behold the problem cleared up. My best guess is that it has something to do with the stabilization function.

My nikon D3100 got wet from rain...what will i do?


Remove the battery imediately, the memory card and the lens. Place the camera body, lens and memory card in a warm dry and place for several days to dry out completely.
When the camers is dry, insert the battery, lens and memory card, turn on the camers and set the date and time.
If the camers does not work charge the battery and try again.
If it still does not work then you need to send it to the Nikon service centre for repair.

I HAVE A SONY DIGITAL CAMERA DSC T-20 AND HAVING AN ERROR MESSAGE E:61:10 PLEASE SEND ME HOW I CAN SOLVE THIS PROB LEM


Hello and Welcome

The symptoms of this error is
  • After pressing the power button in capture mode, the lens would extend and a slight humming from what appeared to be the auto focus motor could be heard for about 5 seconds. When the motor stopped humming, the camera would beep and display E:61:00 in the LCD Screen.
  • Camera would extend the lens but not be able to focus on anything past 8 inches or so.
  • Zoom in and zoom out would not work.
  • Playback mode and the Setup mode was not affected.
To solve this
Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface.
Let the lense go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit. Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time.
If that doesnt fix it, try this:
Turn it on and let the lense go out fully
See where the lens comes out of the camera? The little round crack that surrounds it? Wiggle the lense a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be sure not to blow on the lense!)

Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed


See the following video, It may also help you

I hope it will be Helpful for you.
Thanks and keep Using FixYa

FZ-20 "Please turn camera off then on again"


In a lot of smaller point and shoot cameras, there is a separate lens/motor/gear assembly inside that focuses. If this lens won't focus, that is the message you get. The focus lens gears are typically incredibly small, and the tiniest hair, or piece of dirt will jam them. I have not fixed this particular model, but I've cleaned the focus lens gears on countless Casio and Sony models, and gotten them to work again. Try getting to the focus lens and motor, and moving it by hand. You'll find it's likely jamming up somewhere.

Please Turn Your Camera Off and Then On Again?


THIS MESSAGE APPEARS WHEN A FAULT HAS GONE WRONG WITH THE LENS. EITHER CAMERA HAS TAKEN A DROP OR KNOCK. THIS CAN BE REPAIRED BUT NEEDS TO GO TO A PANASONIC SERVICE CENTRE.

Low light situation


Where the Panasonic FZ-20 does very well, is with conditions where you need a long zoom under low light. Most lenses will lose light as they are zoomed out. The Leica lens in the FZ-20 does not lose light when zoomed. No matter which camera you are using, you will have to use the manual controls for the best results. So learning about exposure and how to use it, is necessary.
