Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Despite recharging battery three times, our Flip Camera has only 7 minutes of recording time. How do we get it back to the 2 1/2 hour recording time allotment?


Answers :

The battery dies after 7 minutes? or the camera just won't let you record longer than 7 minutes? If the battery dies after 7 minutes, then the battery has gone bad (either from overcharging and/or age). Buy a new battery for the camera and it should work if you have the first case of problem.


Let me know how this works out for you.

When recording two vhs tapes back to back on one disk, it will not finalize. But, will finalize if one tape is recorded. Mind you now each tape only has one half an hour recording on them, and the disk is capable one hour of recording time. I'm using dvd-r disks, and have tried everything I could think of, and have used many disks to try and solve this problem.


The disc requires some space for the finalizing process. Two half-hour tapes take up all the room on the disc and leave nothing for the process. You'll need to record at a lower speed. ... Digital Cameras

Have just inherited this digital camcorder. Want to record video onto card rather than tape so bought a new card today.

Have gone through the instruction booklet with a fine tooth come and probably missing something really simple - but want to use

It flashes for 10 seconds then go solid red.

I have the Nikon Coolpix L20. Every time I delete a picture from reviewing it it freezes on the screen "please wait". Ive waited as long as 5 minutes before. I have to constantly take out my batteries and put them back in in order to get the camera working again. Even if I try and delete a picture it does the same thing over and over. I put in new batteries so I know its not that. How do i fix this?

Hello, My olympus sp-500uz has more and more problems with connecting to my PC. Some USB ports don't work any more(front connection) and the back connection works sometimes but getting my pictures on the PC sometimes doesn't work and if it works it takes far too much time, say about 10 minutes for 8 pictures. Any idea what's going on? Thanks

In a drunken haze on Friday night, I was looking for my camera for hours, to record the crazy antics of the eve. When I found it later, much to my dismay, the screen had several cracks on it. This is the result of it being found in my back pocket!! I have been able to get all the photos off the memory stick, and the camera still operates perfectly, except there is no image visible on the screen. When switched on there are no unusual whirring noises that would indicate internal mechanical problem

We have a Canon DC22 camcorder. The disc shows that there is only 4 minutes of recordable time left (DVD-R), but upon review it does not show our recorded video. We know that there was viewable video earlier because we reviewed the disc yesterday and was able to watch our daughter's recital.
