Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Sony CyberShot W290. When I turn the Camera on, "USB Mode Connecting..." displays. How can I get out of this and get back to taking normal pictures? All I can do now is get to the Menu and scroll through Auto/PictureBridge/Mass Storage, etc.


Answers :

Is your camera connected to the computer or any device through the USB port while you're trying to turn it on?? When it's connected through a USB connection, no pictures or modifications can be made!

If it's not connected to any device, take out the batteries, and the memory card. If it has a lithium battery (to store settings/time and date/etc.) take it out as well (refer to the user's guide for more info)... Wait 10 minutes, then put everything back and try again.

Also, try upgrading (or re-applying) the camera's firmware, while connected to a computer. This would most definitely work, but I couldn't find it myself over the internet.

Good luck,
Pelu.


Go into your setup menu. Go to where you pick where to save your pictures to and select "Internal" or "Memory Card". This will put your pictures where you want them, either in the camera or on removable media.

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power. Only way to get mirror etc back to normal is to remove the battery and refit. When camera is turned b

It is brand new, got it two weeks ago and everything was working fine. And nothing happened to it, and i changed nothing.


Did you try calling Canon tech support or returning to retailer if the camera is really not functioning properly this soon after purchase, I'd try returning it once all troubleshooting issues have not resolved the issue.\015\012\015\012Ho ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

I hit q menu and get delete menu i can delete single pictures but when i choose delete multi, six numbered pictures appear on the screen but I cannot figure out how to chose the pictures to delete them. I can scroll and the cursor jumps from picture to pictures but how do I delete them in a group?

I'm trying to shoot HDR photos using my XSi/450D. From the menu two I've set the AEB EV step range as 0, -2 and 2. From here, though, I don't know what to do. If I go directly from the menu to shooting, I don't get any automatic shots, but rather single, individual shots based on the current exposure settings. Help. I've scanned my 45D manual, DVD tutorial, etc. and cannot find my missing step to create a series of AEB shots. Many Thanks, Robert

Lens conversion I often use a telephoto lens or another type of lens such as a panoramic. I cannot get my camera to switch back to normal lens usage. I do have the Conversion Lens: OFF in the menu option. In the screen though my camera still shows W========T there is no other. Any suggestions? Usaually there is a line between the W and the T to show zoom conversion. I cannot get that back.

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently. I connected the camera to my computer and downloaded some photos just like I always do with no problems - disconnecting it as I always do (USB). The next time I went to use the camera, the USB storage screen shows up and I can't get it to go back to the original setting to take photos. I can still download any images from the camera but can't get off that menu. I've tried the reset

Hi Guys! I have a beat up but trusty Panasonic Lumix that takes a great photo. Recently, I turned it on to get a blue screen with the words "system error" on it and thought if I replaced the batteries, I could make it go away.

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

The display on my Ixus 500 has gone blank. It started to show weird colours when switched on but turning it off then on returned the display to normal. I knocked the camera the other day and the display is now blank both in camera mode and picture review mode. The camera makes the usual noises when selecting Menu etc. It also save picture to the memory card. Is it worth taking it to bits to look for a loose connection?
