The power button is jammed or stuck, I have to use my fingernails or press harder in order to turn it on/off. However, it does not stay on or off, just that the button does not pop back up. I have tried...


Normally above problem occurs when small cameras used near sea. High moisture, salty weather and sand accumulation creates above problem. Try a small drop of antitrust spray(WD40) after removing batteries.wait for 20mts operate switch slowly. Other wise switch to be replaced by camera technician.

8 month old tz5 doesn't want to focus any more. Camera says to switch off and then on again, but doesn't help. Anyone help..?


Hi!
It sounds like the focus is stuck. Could be sand, dirt or something like that. I repaired a TZ5 with this problem a couple of days ago. You should contact your local Panasonic service center or other local camera service center. This is a hardware problem, not software, so I'm afraid changing setting and stuff like that won't help.

I hope this helps!

My canon powershot a640's flash isnt flashing.


I can't believe I just managed to fix exactly this problem on my camera.  Warning - the process hurt somewhat, but it did work.
I dismantled the case very carefully:  After taking the shiny grey cover on the screen end off (3 screws, noting carefully where each screw was), I took the top cover off.  
That was a case of unscrewing three screws at the bottom of the battery compartment (I left them in place, as it looked tricky to locate them again, subsequently working with the camera upside down), then gently prising the top off - there is an internal clip just next to the visual viewfinder, which you have to wiggle a bit - just use a fingernail to prise it open.  The top lifts off - dangling on with its cable.
Here is the unpleasant bit.  Quite accidentally, I shorted the flash capacitor, by touching its circuit board - and got the most surprising electric shock.  
I looked around to see if there was anything else I would be able to do, felt there wasn't, so I put it all back together, in the hopes that it might have fixed my problem.
Hey presto, I now have a working camera with working flash!

Stuck on movie standby


The ribbon cable for the top switches has come loose.Undo the four screws holding the LCD screen (two are special--I used the corner of a small flat screwdiver), then gently prise the camera apart and try not to dissconnect the ribbon cable for the menu buttons --it's a pain to get back on again.
Gently ease the ribbon cable for the top switches further into the socket and all shout be well---if it is hard to move flip open the black locking flap on the socket

HP R707 Digi Cam...zoom lense not working


I had the same problem - try to wiggle the zoom lense really carefully and the switch it on again. The zoom objective is canted a little bit and the motor is too weak to move the zoom objective. You can also open the camera by removing all 8 screws around the camera and then removing the metal front (Just pull it in the direction of the zoom lens with your fingernails). Then you can access the zoom lens better ... Andy
