Question about GE A830 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dropped Camera I dropped the camera and now it wont turn on by the power button, but it does cut on when plugged to the computer to download pictures to computer. I took it to this guy around my hometown and he said it was the main circut board and it couldnt be fixed. He also said that he couldnt even get it to cut on the way that I do. After picking up my camera I tried my way of cutting it on and guess what! It worked. Please tell me what to do

    The only way I can get my camera on is by plugging it into my computer first. What about you?

I plug my FUJIFILM s1600 into computer and hold down play button to view pictures but doesn't work


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Dropped camera, will not take or download pictures


Hi, it sounds like the camera is broken and you need to send it in for repair. If you want to copy your pictures, pull out the memory card and use an USB Card Reader to access your files.

Dropped SD400 - buttons no longer work


Not only is a repair shop your only option, you'll probably find it will cost nearly as much to fix than to buy a more recent model.

There are three really weak spots in the SD400 and most small digital cameras: the lens mechanism, the battery door, and the built-in lens shade. Care in closing the battery door so you don't break off the little lugs that hold it shut - using a neck strap so you don't drop the camera - and making sure no sand or grit gets into the lens cap mechanism will make your next camera last a lot longer.

Dropped the camara,it turns on & everything works EXEPT capture button


Unfortunately, as you have found, the cost to repair these cameras is usually not viable, as it is cheaper to replace the camera.

Even if it is repaired, often the impact from being dropped can cause small fractures in boards or loosen the optics and while they may work ok now, can continually develop faults later.

My advice would be to replace the camera, as you will also get a new warranty as well.

Turning on may have killed it. however try this. Take the batteries and card out and leave the doors open Take a polythene bag and place in it a quantity of uncooked rice or salt tied into a suitable cloth. put the camera in and seal the bag. leave in a warm dry place for several days This may save it -or it may not.
