Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The camera is locked in Print Mode. I want to disable this and download pictures to my computer as I did before. Spinning dials and trying "Reset" failed.


Answers :

Hello. Remove the battery and leave it out for five minutes. Then reinsert the battery and turn the camera back on. It should not be in lock when it comes back on. If it is, you will have to take the camera to a repair shop as there is nothing else you will be able to do with it. Joe
May I have the exact model of your camera? The normal thing is that you only get a Print Mode when the camera's DIAL is usually on the Print Mode, something like the picture below in red circle:

However, seems like you have switched the dial to several modes and the Print Mode is still there.

Here is what you try to do. If your camera is still plugged into the computer, point the dial to Auto and then "safely remove" the camera as the computer's usb device. When it says it is now safe to take out the device, then turn the camera off. Removing the battery out will also help. Then after a minute, try to put back the battery and turn on the camera again.

Please let me know how this goes.

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

I was taking pictures for my photography class and after 3-4 pictures in, the camera froze. I turned it off and on and it did it again. When I tried to check the photos I took, it told me "read error". So, I clicked on the reset option and I was able to take and look through my photos. Now the issue, when I plug in the usb cable in to my camera and my computer, my computer keeps on freezing when I tried to upload my images. It didn't have this issue before.
