Everytime I turn it on it says memory card error, card locked. i've tried moving the locked switch on the side of the card up and down but that hasn't done anything. and i know it isnt my camera because i put an old memory card in it and it read that memory card just fine.

I have a Sanyo VPC C6EX 6megapixel camcorder which, when switched on, immediately takes a photo in 'camera' mode without any prompting. After that, it will not take a photograph in normal operation. I have moved the switch between REC and PLAY and tried both camera and video modes, but neither will respond when buttons pressed. Switch the camera off, and then back on again, and it still takes a picture automatically without warning....! Indeed, the camera seems to be 'confused'?...even in ME

Check if any of the button on your camera is remaning slightly pressed internally.if it is pressed make it proper .also tap the sides of your camera slightly for two minutes.then ON the camera and check out.\015\012if this does not helps.it the ... Sanyo Digital Cameras

I purchased this camera months ago and hate it. I guess I dont know how to use it correctly. Any time I try and take pictures it seems like it take forever for the pic to take. By the time it clicks the subject has moved resulting in blurry pic. I have tried moving the dial to different settings and no change. Any suggestions?

You need to learn the "half-press". You press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep). Then, when the moment is right, you finish pressing the rest of the way for an instant picture. ... Olympus EVOLT E-410 Digital Camera

I bought my camera Christmas Eve, and a new memory card Christmas Day. Yesterday, I tried turning the camera on and the lens opened and shut automatically and said Lens Error with a Large Red Exclamation point. I've come to the conclusion that it was because I hadn't formatted the new memory card with the camera and I'd already taken a few pictures with it. But now, when I turn the camera on, it no longer says that and only has a blurry image and does not take photos. I do not know how to fix th

I'm not sure what is relevant and what isn't but... Two days ago I tried taking a picture on my timer and all of them came out blurry. I wasn't sure why this was so I started poking around on the camera and decided to reset all factory settings. Then that evening I tried to upload my pictures to my computer as usual. The software (Picasa) locked up. I tried taking the camera out of the cradle and turning it on but it wouldn't turn on. I rebooted my computer and tried turing the camera on

Sometimes a camera software upgrade will help, but it is hard to find software online. I first would look on manufacture's website to see if there is any driver updates you can download to your pc, then do the same with picasa software. Also make sur ... Digital Cameras

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?

Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

Fresh batteries will only last for about 15 min of staggered use. I use it to take pictures of jewelry and with setting up the pieces then trying 4 different settings for each piece...they dont come out well and then the camera is drained. I'm spending way too much $ on batteries. Camera is about 3 yrs old without much use!!!!

It probably has hardware issues now (mainboard) Time to buy a new one! As fixing it might cost more than buying a new and much better digital camera with rechargeable battery packs. ... Kodak EASYSHARE Z1285 Digital Camera

Over exposure My camera was working great until about 2 months ago when I tried taking pictures outside and they were over exposed. I checked my settings and they were normal ( always keep it on automatic); however, I even changed them yet my pictures outside or inside (in bright light) are all over exposed. What could be the cause of this problem? Thanks!

CARD LOCKED my camera says the my memory card is locked.?? i dont no how to unlock it My A 450 says my card is locked, but the card is NOT locked (button on the side of the card is in unlock position). The camera still indicates card locked with a new card inserted. When i try to take a picture it says "Card Locked!" and it wont let me add a new folder onto the card once its on my computer

My Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI will not automatically focus. The little AF points don't show red to signify it is focusing. The camera just takes a blurry picture.
