Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My camera is on and working. I plug in the usb adapter to upload pictures and the screen goes black and nothing happens on my computer other than a beep acknowledging something has been plugged in - it doesn't say what just a sound. What is wrong?


Answers :

Reinstall the driver ...for the camera ..if it doesn't need one ...after recognizing it ( beep) ...take a look into my computer ...and probably will find the card ..like a removable device ..and can copy paste picks from it ..if it is not locked from the card ( a slide button with 2 positions )

Battery charging I recieved the Jazz DV179 as a gift. The battery was already in the camera, but I was told that I would have to charge it. I plugged the Camcorder into the wall and left it for over 24 hrs to charge, but when I remove it from the plug it shuts off. If i plug it back into the wall it comes on so i know the camcorder works. I am not sure on how to proceed next. Is there something wrong with the battery?, does the battry need and external charger before you insert it into the camco

I have tripled checked that the microphone is not obstructed, but when I video (in whatever quality size) when downloaded and played back the sound is very intermittent. It appears that the mic is very one dimensional and when you pan around gently the sound disappears until you are smack bang in front of the source again!!

Ive bought the camera M530 yesterday and it makes a ticking sound when switched on as if it is something to do with the smart capture. Should I be worried that something is wrong with the camera or is just a quirk of it.

I can manually focus but when on auto I get the red square for a second and then it goes off it does not move the lens into focus and it does not beep.

Hi, I have a Canon Power Shot S2 IS 5.0 megapixels that was working fine until one day I changed the memory card from 512MB to a 1GB. Now every time I turn the camera on and try to take a picture, a beeping sound and a legend on the LCD screen that reads: Memory card error. It's like something locked the shutter mechanism. I tried other memory cards with the same results. Thanks, Roger.
