Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

For the first time I'm getting the message on my lcd display "cannot play back image" with a yellow question mark. Whatever has happened is keeping me from viewing my photos. Any idea how to correct the situation?

Answers :

This is happening usually when the picture is taken in another camera or is adulterated on the card ..if you know you did not used the card in another device ..than is just a card error ...
Remove the card and reinsert it again ...Meanwhile ..shut down the camera ..and remove the power supply (batteries and/or accumulators..)After that insert the card again with care ..and be sure it is clean and make good contact ..(humidity can cause card errors)..and try again and see what is going on ..Usually this kinda errors are temporary due to humidity oer poor contact ..but ..also try to get to the next picture cause if you used it in a laptop and copy or make some editing on the picture there is a possibility that the parameters of the picture to be changed in editing ..and the camera is not able to read it anymore..
If this goes on after doing all that ..and you can not see any picture at all...,insert the card into a card reader or a laptop ..and copy all pictures from it so that you will save them ..and after that insert the card into the camera again and format it ..
You will find the format card feature in the storage area...in the main menu ..or under card ..it depends on the menu ...
You can also format the card in a laptop or card reader in desktop ...just by selecting it in the My computer folder..and after that right click on it ..and click format ...Choose to format in Fat32..If after that the camera asks to format it again when inserted..do it again in the camera cause this is the best way to use it ...formatted in camera ..
Remember to save pictures..if they are not recognizable anymore by the camera it means that the format was changed in a computer or so ..
Let me know how it goes..

My cam shoots crystal clear HDV in daylight, but indoors with low light the video when viewed on a HD tv is a bit grainy and cannot figure out if this is a simple setting or if it is even correctable. My general settings are 1.Manual mode 2.Gain set to 3db-12db. 3.My shutter is at 60. I adjust my iris to correct for low light but wonder if

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens. When I turn it on in the "taking pictures" mode or "view pictures" mode, it just hangs and acts like it has trouble reading the CF card. I've tried multiple cards and had the same problem, so I think it's the camera and not the cards. Any ideas?

My 3935 keeps erasing memory cards. All of the sudden, you get a white screen and the camera won't function until you remove the card. This has happened twice; both were Kodak 128 SD. The first time, it had 60 pics. Six months later, the same thing happened. Any ideas on why this has happened?

When I try to view or delete photos, the camera keeps defaulting to the photo taking mode. It goes back and forth between the two functions. When I do manage to view a photo or delete one, it sounds like the camera is actually taking a photo. Could this be a problem with the memory stick? New batteries do not correct the problem.

Exposure problems My CP 5400 is unable to get the correct exposure. It underexposes (even with all possible exposure correction)and the dark parts of the picture get a greenish tinge. The sunlit parts turn purple. It's a strange situation. Any ideas what to do? Is there a way to reload the camera's firmware? Is the firmware available anywhere?

This is a recently purchased camera that was working beautifully until recently. It just stopped taking pictures; when the shutter release is pressed, nothing happens. The only clue I have to what is happening came when I pressed the Quick View button and got a No Card message. I changed the CF card to one I took from my Canon Rebel XT and that I knew was working fine - again the message No Card when the QV button was pressed. Does that help at all in defining the problem?
