Hi, 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 pressing the shotting button, 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.

Another common problem. Lens troubles. You have either knocked your lens out of alignment or you have a foreign body jamming up the works in the lens control unit. There have been many so called fixes for these problems but usually end up causing more problems than curing. You could check that you have fully charged new batteries. Some cameras need that extra kick to get them to open the lens fully. Worn out batteries can stop a sticky lens in it's tracks and tell the processor there is a problem and to close down. It's well worth trying before writing it off.

How to remove date and time stamps from photos. I know how to turn off the time function, but I want to know remove the stamps from the photos already taken.


If the photo was already taken then the date stamp is a part of the photo, exactly like any faces that may be in there. You can remove the date using photo-editing software, but whatever was behind the date is lost forever.

Hello

If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Well, I have the same problem. Just introduce once the date and time. Turn off the camera. then turn the camera on using the button for presentation of pics (right arrow). You will see the last picture taken. Press again and you will be in shoot mode. The date and tame will be there. It is a bit fuzzy but works,
