Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I recently purchased a bell-howell 252 8mm double 8 manual movie camera at a junk antique shop and was wondering how to load the accompanying film cartridge, but also how to view the movies after they are recorded. Also how much is it worth? It came with an original case (worn condition), 2 film cartridges, and only has a few minor scratches on the surface.

Nikon FM: Shutter release button will not allow me to take another photo and I'm only on frame 15 of a roll of 24. The film advance lever does not move the film, but it does open all the way to the right & shows the lights on inside (so the battery is OK). I changed the battery just in case, but that didn't solve the problem. I'm wondering if the film somehow came undone inside.


The FM is a mechanical camera, the batteries only power the metering system. Sometimes what happens is when you buy film say in 4 roll packages, they give you 3 24 exps and a 12 exp. I suggest that you rewind the roll and check this. You will only ... Nikon Digital Cameras

How do I recover deleted / overwritten movie files from our Sony DCR-SR85E? We used the 60GB space available and then saved movie files onto an external pc hard drive which has been lost by a DVD conversion provider we engaged. We have also recorded additional movie files on the same Sony Video Camera Recorder and it is nearing memory capacity. Is there a forensic method available to retrieve our original deleted / overwritten files and what is the best option available? Thank you in advance.


There is a collection of softwares that can be tried with your deleted drive . Please load them and check.\015\012\015\012 ... Digital Cameras

Also tried just to change .kdf extension to .jpg on my compouter, but just got the same message : Can't read file tipe... Read the Extended gude book, but there's nothing useful...

I have an 8mm high digital camcorder tape which got tangled in the camcorder. when i wound the tape back in the case and returned it to the camcorder it would only play a high pitched sound with no picture! Is it ruined or can the film i recorded on the tape be cleaned and rectified?


I've had to fix this problem several times. You need to open the 8mm cassette, and manually rewind to where the tape got twisted around. Then untwist it, and manually wind the tape back on the reels. and then put the cassette back together. If the ... Digital Cameras

I have had this camera for less than a year, never dropped it, and it stays in a case. Sometimes when I turn it on, it says, for use with compatible battery only. The battery it has in it is the one it came with. Also when sometimes the lens gets stuck when i turn the camera on and off. Please help me figure out what is wrong.


The battery maybe faulty and is not fully charged. If the battery is flat it will affect the operation of the camera. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W530 Digital Camera

Lens spring/s A couple of weeks ago I got the dreaded lens error. In my case it was probably due to sand. I took the camera apart and when I came to disassembling the lens - the spring popped and fell on the floor - as I picked it up it caught in the carpet and I ruined it. So my question is where do I get a replacement without sending the whole camera back to Canon? Also is there 2 springs, as there seems to be hooks for 2?


I had teh same question, I'm trying to repair mine atteh moment and there is only one spring.\015\012\015\012still trying to get teh lens back together propoerly, managed to rip a cable track so have to get another anyway... spewing.. ... Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

What should I do ? thanks also the lens a 24-105 got water inside , it needs to be cleaned and taken apart , is it worth doing that? thanks Robert

My DV179 Camcorder works fine with the SD 2GB memory card it came with. I surely do like it. I have need for greater capicit. So I purchased a SDHC 8GB memory When I tried to record to it (approx 30 minutes worth) it appeared to accept the information. I tried to thransfer the information to my computer but i could not get it to transfer to my HD. Is the SDGC memory card not compatible with the DV179. What do you suggest?


Hi,\015\012Sorry to say this SDGC card is not compatible with DV179.\015\012You need to buy only SD card that's only compatible with DV179.\015\012\015\012Hope this helps . ... Jazz Digital Cameras

Can I connect my camera to my PC with a USB cable and record sound from sites such as you tube while I film the screen to get both the audio and visual of a film clip. Right now i can do that by using the built in microphone in my camera and recording the sound thru the air, but the audio would be better if it recorded direct. If so, what settings do I need to make in my camera and PC?


This is a very roundabout way of recording from YouTube. There are many free utilities to capture YouTube or other website videos directly in your computer, without using a camera and getting the degradation involved. If you want the clip on your cam ... Sanyo VPC-T1060 Digital Camera

Blurred pictures I started using my new Nikon Coolpix on Christmas Eve and have taken photos for about 2 weeks. More than half of the pictures are very blurry after I transferred them to my computer and enlarged them to view. My daughter also got a Canon Elph on the same day and her photo quality is much much better. I also own a Nikon D5000 and have always been very happy with the quality, thus my choice of a Nikon pocket camera. Have I made a mistake?
