    I have the exact same problem. The lens is stuck out and will not retract. The LCD will not power up, and when I hit the power button it makes a beeping sound like it is trying to power on but nothing happens. I replaced battery with a new one and that did not help either. We called Canon and they said I could send it in for repair but they had no fix over the phone.

    Hi I'm experiencing the same problem, my husband believes it might have frozen when we went skiing with it. Did you get an answer on how serious the problem was yet?

Try wiping the battery terminals on the camera and the battery.
Use an electrical contact cleaner that you buy at an auto parts store. Soak a q-tip and go at it. You may be surprised. I was.Just a caution. Make sure the contact cleaner will not melt the plastic on your camera or the battery. Test it by wiping a q-tip dampened with the cleaner on a portion of the battery cavity. If the qtip comes back gray, use the cleaner sparingly and touch only the battery contact areas.

My Panasonic DMC-TZ3 has a black screen can't get it to view. Does anyone have any ideas why?


Hi,
If you able to click the pic but all thing shows only black black nothing to see,,,all functions are working just not seen anything, then you have a problem in your lance , there is lance flex in your lance may be damaged so you must be replace it and you got your camera as before, if you are technician then first buy lance flex of your camera and replace it, if not then send it to any authorised repairer, its not a big problem its routing problem of cameras,

CMOS battery replaced in laptop and it boot loops everytime showing OS option screen and safe-mode options no repair option shows


You changed the CMOS Battery, did you go into the BIOS and set the correct Date and Time? If that fails try running the check disk utility because it sounds like your boot files or systems files are either missing something or has some corruption.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

When I turn the camera on the screen is black. It shows the menu display ok and it will display pictures already taken but it is not possible to take pictures as the screen is just black..


Two things there, first... could be a problem with the viewer screen, or, second choice could be a problem with the CCD sensor or go to bad; in both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Canon service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps; check it and keep us updated..

This is usually do to a section of your controller chips dying. This is not fixable by the end user, the only thing I could say to try is to try different resolutions to see if you can reduce the issue.

Hello aversteegh, hi, in my opinion as a tech guy, I'm really not sure if its worth the repair, there are to much problem with that receiver, but if you plan to service it your self, better not, this takes a lot of diagnosing, as you describe this receiver problems, it points all to power supply and or a main board (possibly controls circuit, the IC that controls every media player), I humble suggest consult first a local tech shop for evaluation or free estimates on the repair. and make sure that the repair is reliable.

My Tv has red light (color) out of focus..I've tried tuning the lance but it's not the problem in the lance..it's something else..don't know what..do you?


Your TV has three picture tubes which are aligned to properly converge the projected light beams on the screen. Each picture tube projects a single color of Blue Green or Red. During production your TV was carefully adjusted to properly align these colors. As a feature you have the ability to adjust these colors.thats called convergence.If you don't have a manual to show you how to adjust you can find one here http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/support.html

Motherboard does not BOOT to windows


If you are running anything from windows XP upwards inc Vista
then you must re-install the operating system when you change the motherboard.

From your description that is the problem you are encountering.

You could place your windows disc in the cd rive and tell the computer to boot from that and try a "repair install"

If successful you will loose no date but will be asked to re-register with microsoft.

If your windows disk is original and not meant for an OEM computer that will not be a problem

My camera cannot take pictures.it comes up blank


you may need to release and renew your ipconfig,,,,copy this down:
First,,go to start, then "run" when the little screen comes up,,type in "cmd" all without quotes,,,then a dos screen should show up,,,,in the dos screen,,,,type in: "ipconfig" then you should see all the dos text info on your connection,,,,then type in "ipconfig/release" again no quotes,,,then wait,,you should see all the info fields go into zero's seperated by periods eg: 0.0.0.0.0 etc now type in "ipconfig/renew"
after doing this your internet connection should resett.
If this does not work you need to call up your ISP tech support.

Outside display screen will not show anything but the motorolla logo


Does anything show on the external display if you go to take a picture, but before you acually take it, close the phone and look on the external display as if you were taking a self-portrait?
To make fully sure, while the phone is closed, press a volume button - does anything show on the display? If so, the external display functions and it would be a setting that may have been overlooked.
Go to Menu > Settings > Initial Setup > Display Timeout
or:
Menu > Settings > Personalise > Home Screen
