Hi
Please try these suggestions:
1. Check all the buttons to ensure they are free moving. If a small piece of dirt gets stuck behind one of the buttons and keeps the button depressed, the camera will often not work properly.
2. Format the memory card. The memory card could be faulty, so try reformatting it (preferably in a card reader attached to a computer).
3. When you say the camera stops working, if the power shuts down it may indicate the battery is faulty and needs to be replaced.
We hope this helps to resolve your problem

Hi

Most manufacturers put the serial number of a camera on the plate on the underside of the camera. In some it maybe inside the battery compartment.

We hope this helps.

Vivitar Cameras | Answered 3 hours ago


Hi
Please see the suggestions below which hopefully get the camera working again
1. Have you tried a fresh set of alkaline AA batteries? If so have you tested these batteries in another device so you know they are good?
2. Have you checked the battery compartment terminals and battery bay door terminals are free from corrosion?
3. Check all the buttons on the camera to ensure they are moving freely. If some dirt gets jammed into one of them it can make the camera think the button is being pressed and it will not allow the camera to switch on.
I hope one of these suggestions helps to get the camera up and running again.

Hi I am not familiar with the 30D but there is a parts list shown here:
https://elektrotanya.com/canon_eos-30d_parts.pdf/download.html
Whether you can get the parts is another issue. You would have to try and see if Canon can still supply in your region. I hope this helps.

Hi

If you look in the camera menu under the CARD tab you will find the option to format the card. This will wipe the data from the card.

We hope this helps.

Hi

Unfortunately, it would seem the camera does not have any function to turn off after a period of inactivity.

Olympus Cameras | Answered 4 hours ago


Hi Check for any dust or dirt that could be stuck around any of the buttons on the camera. If the camera is under the impression another button is being pressed (because of dust dirt) then the OK button will not work. If you cannot find any button that seems to be jammed then it maybe the sensor behind the OK button has failed. We hope the suggestions helps to get the camera running again

Hi To reset the camera to the default settings you must go into the menu and choose "Reset All" We hope this helps

Nikon Cameras | Answered 4 hours ago


Hi

Check there is no dust or dirt that is stopping the lens mechanism retracting the lens properly (which is then interfering with the cover closing). You should also try and check if the cover is aligned properly. If it has been dropped or knocked it can sometimes move them out of position and this can then stop them closing properly.

We hope this helps to get the camera working properly once more.

Hi

Here are some suggestions to try and see where the problem may be:

1. Have you tried to charge the battery? We would suggest trying different USB sources (e.g. a USB port on a computer as well as the Nikon supplied AC adapter)
2. Could the battery be dead? If you have tried to charge the battery in the camera via USB then there is a chance the battery is dead and needs replacing. If the camera had not been used for a long time and the battery was stored with little or no charge, the battery may now be un-chargeable.
3. If the camera has been left unused for a long time the internal battery that keeps the time/date may have discharged. You need to be able to set the time/date before the battery can be charged. If you plug the camera into a USB power source and you can see the menu on the LCD then set the date/time.

We hope these suggestions help to get the camera back up and running

  1. Step 1: Load the image. Open the image that you wish to remove the date stamp from.
  2. Step 2: Select the date/time stamp. Zoom in on the area with the date and time stamp, and then mark it with marker or any other selection tool.
  3. Step 3: Run the restoration process.

Hi

This could be down to dust/dirt getting into one of the menu buttons. This could give the camera the impression the button is permanently being depressed. Check all the buttons to check that they are free moving and not stuck in anyway.

Hope this helps

As far as I know, you should use L series Lens to fit Full Frame Canon Camera (5D & 1D).

That would be no adapter, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Canon EOS-5D... | Answered 5 hours ago


Normal 0 BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH – FIXED AT LAST - After doing several hours of research on the internet, I have been able to eliminate the problem on my Powershot S2 IS. I started with the “fix” as suggested by guidofoc in a post on the “flickr” site. Thanks guidofoc! His procedure did fix the problem for me but it only lasted a day. The next day, back to the same old black screen. For the next few days/weeks, when I wanted to use my camera, I did the same procedure and it would come back to life but would be black again the next time I powered up the camera or a day later.
Back to internet research! On the “Fixya” site, I found a picture of the camera shutter and diaphragm blades. This picture was posted by “andyhutton” who was also having the same “black screen” problem. He had disassembled his camera and found what appeared to be an oil exuding on the shutter diaphragm blades. He disassembled the camera, cleaned it thoroughly, and reassembled it. This fixed his camera. Other information I found indicated that what appeared to be oil was a little “stiffer” than oil, almost hard. It was thought that this was happening after leaving in a hot car other high temperature environment.
All this made sense to me but I didn’t relish the thought of tearing the camera apart and reassembling it. This procedure reportedly took about 6-8 hours. And this was by a person who considered himself, to have a reasonable amount of mechanical ability. I definitely DON’T RECOMMEND this approach unless you have tried all else and are ready to junk your camera. Using this information I theorized that if I used the temporary fix procedure and then repeatedly activated the shutter, perhaps the “wiping action” may wear down the frictional areas and free up the shutter blades to move more freely. I tried it. Voila! It has worked now for the last 6-8 weeks without a failure. Here is my final procedure:

Set the camera in Tv mode, (delayed shutter mode) set the shutter at 15 sec, click to take a picture and during that 15 secs (like, after 7 seconds) open the battery, compartment which cuts contact with the battery circuit. Close the battery cover. At this point the camera works fine for me but only temporarily as noted above. Sometimes however, this procedure had to be performed more than once. Here is the key to the permanent fix. While the camera is working via the temporary fix, take many, many pictures. Hundreds! I probably snapped 400-600 pics. The idea is to wear down the little patches of hardened oil on the shutter blades. For the next three of days I took hundreds of pics each day. Basically, I just aimed the camera at the wall or whatever and snapped off several hundred pics.

Now that I seem to have my camera working permanently, my plan is to NOT leave my camera in a high temperature environment, and to try to use it regularly. Maybe, not unlike many other things, if it gets no regular use, it may start to deteriorate.

No guarantees but I do hope this helps someone.
