Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My sony dsc-w90 has just started to say "reinsert memory card". I have cleaned card and now bought a new card to no avail. Seems to be a fault with the camera which is about 18months old. Can I fix this fault? Best regards Dave Friston


Answers :

Try cleaning the contacts in memory card slot, if that does not work, then the camera has a lose contact to the memory card reader slot.
You have an internal fault in the camera. Sounds like you may have a broken pin. A repair shop should be able to fix this very cheap. I would not attempt doing it yourself as it could damage the camera worse if a mistake is made.

I need some followup help. The PNY 4 GB memory card that I purchased for my pentax optioS5z camera seems to be incompatible. the old card that we have been using is a Sun 1 GB. Is there a data limit that the camera can handle? The new card says "only compatible with SDHC Host Devices". Is my camera too old for this? thanks.


Have you tried to format the card. If not try that. If that does not work then your camera will not be able to use the 4 gb card that is SDHC. The HC means High Capacity. You will only be able to use 1 or 2 GB cards. \ ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

I just got my camera back from Canon but it still isn't working right! I took it in because when I turned it on it said NO CF CARD. They fixed the metal prongs. Now, it still doesn't work to store or view photos on the camera without a cf card. I inserted my old CF (undamaged card) and formatted it and now it seems to take photos BUT nothing shows on my camera viewfinder when I go to take the photos. It shows I have over 3000 photos on my card but they will not display. Help!

Pictures Lost??? We have a large number of pics on our 1GB memory card in our camera. However after unsuccessfully trying to transfer images onto file via the olympus master software, the pictures cannot be viewed on the camera. They don't seem to be erased, as only 10 pictures can still be taken on the memory card (in HQ format). If they were erased there'd be more space available? These pictures are very valuable but I cannot work out where they have gone to. I haven't pressed the Erase All bu

I recently got an old Concord Eye-Q Duo 2000 camera from a second-hand shop. It seems to work, but when I tried to download the pics to my computer, most came through blank, even though they showed well on the LCD when I reviewed them. I do not have the software or drivers, but I thought that since the pics are in JPG mode, I could just download them with my card reader and they would be OK. But not so. Is there anything I can do without the software and driver?


Did you take out the memory card and place it in the card reader and nothing appeared? If so, your pictures might probably saved on the camera's internal phone memory. What you can do is to plugin your camera to the computer using a usb cable. The ... Concord Camera Eye-Q Duo 2000 Digital Camera

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures. The closer you zoom the worse the lines are. The lines cover the entire picture from top to bottom. I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.
