Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When viewing some of my shots about 10 of them come up with Incompatable jpeg. They were fine last time I looked at them. It may be possible that they are the ones which my husband zoomed in on to see the quality of the detail. Is there anything I can do to restore them to the original state?


Answers :

This happens when a picture is edited and the data is stripped from the file (the data allows the camera to read the file). IrfanView is a free software you can download here which will allow you to convert the picture back to a data filled .jpeg. It says it's as easy as opening the jpeg with the software and resaving.

My HP CA340 10.0 megapixels with 3x optical zoom lens only shows a white screen when I turn it on. I can still take pictures with great quality as I could before, I just can't see what I'm doing. It was working fine yesterday, when I turned it on, it seemed fine, then the screen randomly turned white. I would like to know if there is a way to fix this before I actually have to send it in for some one else to repair.


My CA340 turns on and off all on its own...makes the camera almost useless... I sent a trouble report to HP support...tho I doubt I'll get any resolution. Should have stuck with Canon ... HP CA340 Digital Camera

Hello! I actually have a TZ3 and have been having problems with the quality of the pictures without using the zoom (grainy) as well as problems with the quality of the picture when using the zoom (blurry). the camera is 3 & 1/2 years old and i am not sure what the problem is. can someone make some suggestions? thanks! jennifer


Hello, yes a few suggestions "grainy" could be from an auto ISO setting the sensor speed high as in possibly ISO 400 even 800 or higher you get the pictures but it's grainy. On pocket point and shooters this is most often the case in full automatic m ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera

I set the Smart Zoom to On and then I zoom in to record a football game. Later I view on my computer and it is always very fuzzy. If I do not zoom in then it's clear but the video is then too far away to see what players are who. The smart Zoom seems to never work no mater how I try it.

Zoom A few days ago, I got an E18 error. I played around with the zoom and it seemed to fix itself. I took a couple of pictures today and now the zoom will not go out. I can't view my pictures or anything. It beeps and all I see is the green and black wavy lines.

I just found my husbands old Minolta maxxum 5 AF Zoom lens camera. I don't know how to zoom in. I am trying to take close ups of my infant and it appears that I can only zoom in on objects 4 feet away. Anything closer is out of focus. Can someone please give me a brief "how to" on this camera? Thank you


It's not the fault of the camera itself, it's a lens issue. Zoom lenses can only get so close before the min focus is obtained. Unless you have a macro lens (not suited for portraits, which can focus down to mere inches. Most zooms aren't really desi ... Digital Cameras

Quality Problem I have SONY DSC 717, indeed a unique one but I am facing problem with the quality of its snap. The photo becames paler (faded) in respect of its color and contrust. The quality (as we see in digital camera) is not up to the mark. Any advise for any technical adjustment in the camera or will help me a lot. Thanks.


I had a Sony F707 for quite a number of photos before buying an F717. I found the F717 to underexpose by about 0.3EV relative to the F707, pretty consistently, so I just set the EV compensation on the F717 to +0.3EV most of the time.\015\012\015\012T ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

Fuji F50fd suddenly has only a white screen when turned on. No display at all. It still takes photos, however you cannot see them or see if you are zooming or see any menus, etc. Camera was in a case in my purse, not dropped or damaged in any way.

Camera problems I can see the different setting symbols on the screen and when I turn it off and on I can see the canon pic it shows upon coming on. However, when I take a pictures I can no longer see the picture I am taken on the screen and although it appears to have taken the picture the picture turned out black. This starting taking place after my husband changed my settings I cannot figure out what to do to change it back. Please help.


This definitely sounds like a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info: \015\ ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

Blurry lenses Same problem exactly. I'm not sure what happened (maybe sand in the camera?) The camera now turns off to a black screen, If I push the botton to see ast pictures, the screen works again and lets me see through them. But If I go back to "take picture mode", the image they give me is all blurry and if I try to use the zoom, the camera turns off.


This sounds like you have gotten some kind of contamination inside the camera, it is blurry because the lens can't move to focus the image in a smooth manner, it is sticking. U can try taking this apart but based on my experience this is best left ... Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

My Olympus FE-320 will not focus. When I turn the camera on, lens extends and retracts a couple of times, camera beeps and turns off. If I press the review button while the lens is extended, I can see old pictures then switch to camera and see a live screen, but out of focus. If I try to zoom, camera beeps and turns off. Sounds like others have the same problem with this camera.

You should change the ASA or ISO equivalent value--ie, change from 200-speed film to 1600-speed film. This will make the photo appear "grainier" but will show more detail. You can also manually choose slower shutter speeds--even longer than one secon ... Nikon Coolpix S550 10 Megapixel Digital Camera (Graphite Black) with 5x Optical Zoom + 4GB Memory Ca
