Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
Can not set up the cameras - Digital Cameras
This isn't much information to go on, but I'll try to get you started. The first thing that is usually required is to set the time dd/mm/yy. This is done by going into the menu (press the menu button), and then start selecting the data by using the arrow keys (top and bottom). When you finish one field, use the right arrow key to navigate to the next field. When you are done, press the Menu button to exit. Of course, make sure you have fresh batteries, or that they're charged. Then turn on the camera, and go into the Menu and select your options. Depending on the type of camera you have, the menu will vary, so refer to your manual if you get stuck. Good luck, and hope this gets you going.

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.
Small white circles usually means dust on the lens. Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ... Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH Camera - Silver
What are the normal settings for night shots on oly C3030Z. Shall I use flash when I shot on nights? If I set the aperture on F2.8 and the shutter from 2 to 16 sec. I got a lot of pixels on the picture. I found out that if I have the shutter open for a very long time there are many pixels on the shot. I hope you can tell me,about the settings for night shots. I am new to this digital world,and this is my first digital camera. Is this camera not good to shot in the night?

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

Monitor unlit I'm using my colleges D40 for my digital photo class. The camera was set by a prior student. I'm trying to find on the camera where the "Auto- Off Timers" is. I'm thinking the camera was set so the monitor is always off avoiding extra use of the battery. It has to be something simple and getting used to moving around the camera program. Thanks
The best thing to do would be to press the 2 green dots together to do a master reset on the camera. 1st green dot would be just beside the shutter and the other would be on the left of the lcd. press and hold them both for about 10 secs ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

Portrait I know the FZ20 has a portrait setting, but can still remember from my old 35 mm SLR camera days that the best lens to use for portraits is a 135 mm lens. What would the same zoom setting be on a digital camera?

Most digital SLR cameras take pictures with an aspect ratio of 2 to 3. (This is based on the size of 35 mm film, where the images were 24 x 36 mm, a 2 to 3 ratio.) That is a different ratio than 8 x 10 inches, which is 4 to 5. There is no way to chan ... Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera
Lens problem Hi. I have an Olympus FE-190 digital camera. not sure what happened, but now there is a problem with the lens. when i turn on the camera, the lens extends, retracts, several times (trying to find "home" I think). Image on the display screen is blurry. it WILL take a very blurry picture. there is a faint 'ratcheting" sound when the lens is fully extended. is there a way to 're-set" or calibrate the lens extension setting or focus? thanks very much for your assistance.

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!
Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
