Answers :

What kind of batteries are you using? Try regular AA Duracell Coppertop Batteries. I have a Canon A560 and I have the best luck with them. Forget the rechargeable they are hopeless. Mine rechargeable don't hold a charge.

Message Display I have a 256MB memory card for my camera. I have not taken many photos. Even at the lowest picture quality setting of 640, the camera reads that I only have 146 images to take.

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted. The best way I can describe it is as if the image appears that I took a photo off something on the tv, with a series of horizontal lines running across the image. The video capture seems to work fine though. Can you offer any sug

Distorted images When I try to capture a "superfine" resolution image (1600x1200), the image is distorted - segmented, linear blocks across the image, steps in the image, colour is separated into colour blocks - if only I could send you an attachment to demonstrate the effect - it would be so much easier!  I try to use this camera at work to document problems with equipment. This was my first digital camera - and what a disappointment! The batteries drain almost immediately, and never try to use


There has to be something wrong with the firmware in the camera in order for that to happen. You could take it into a camera store but I have a feeling the cost is going to be too high.\015\012\015\012I couldn't download the manual from ... Vivitar Vivicam 3345 Digital Camera

DSC P51 Trying to decide whether my camera is suffering from the defective CCD imager problem. I currently have a black image at all times, as if the shutter is closed. I removed the MS and reset the camera which didn't affect anything. On the Sony site it says to take a movie clip with sound then replay it. When I did that, it didn't replay the image and I heard no sound either. Does hearing no sound still constitute a prob with the CCD imager?

My DSC-T700 seems to have lost its internal software (this may not be the problem, but as a novice, this is best I can describe the status of my camera). The camera only shows an image when the slider is opened. But can't do anything with the camera. The menu system has vanished completely. The buttons as well as the zoom does not work. I was anti virus scanning the camera, then deleted all the files in within its drive, via PC. The problem seemed to start from then. I've tried the basics


Yes, using the PC to delete the files and running a virus scan (totally not necessary) has caused your problem. Since the menu doesn't appear, you can try a manual reset but I doubt it will help at this point. Here's how: remove the card and battery ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T700 Digital Camera

Lense error- can hear lense trying to open, but lense does not come out of the camera body. This is weird because the camera was not dropped/hit/damaged. I used the camera to take night images of a rising moon. It took pics fine, but about an hour later when I tried to turn the camera on to review the pics, I got the lense error as noted above. 4 days later, same problem. The manual doesn't have any troubleshooting for this problem. Any suggestions? Anyone.....? Thanks for your time!
