Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
My boss is having trouble accessing the videos he's uploaded onto his Mac BookPro, using his SD card with the Targus TGR-MSD500 device. He can see the video's first image, as well as the video duration time, however the video will not open and play. Any chance you can walk him through the steps to fix this?
Be sure the video is actually downloaded onto the computer, not just connected via camera/usb cord. Usually, all you have to do is double-click on the video and it will play automatically. You could also right-click and choose to open it with either Quicktime or iMovie.

We have a 2005 panasonic mini DV, with 800x, About two years ago we began to have problems playing back the video, the sound was gone and there was blue stripes through the playback video screen, or the screen was a crazy jumble of the image. It seemed to fix it self most of the time, this time however we just have a blue screen and it won't play back our videos on the camera. I fooled around with recording speed but I'm not sure that's the problem. Is our problem something we can fix or sh

I have JVC Everio GZ-MG155 and until recently I was pretty happy with this camera. Few days back, I accidentally dropped it and now camera lense are stuck at one place (in zoom). Lense are not able to focus as well. I bought it from costco around 2 and half year ago and it is now beyond warranty time.

Just received a mint condition Nikon Coolpix S4 swivel-head digital camera off eBay. Installed new AA alkaline (Duracell) batteries and a new 1GB SD card. From the firt time I fired it up this morning, all downloaded still photos from my Nikon Coolpix S4 have evenly spaced, horizontal lines spanning their full width. These lines also appeared on the LCD viewer in view mode. However, the S4 functions perfectly in video mode. Is there a service centre fix up for this? Is this camera salvageable? T

My camera worked very recently, as I took pictures on a camping trip. However, a few days later after getting back, I've found that it refuses to turn on. If I turn it to either Video or Photo, the light turns green, but then immediately flashes red several times and shuts off. I've tried different batteries, with and without several SD cards, and nothing works... How do I fix it?
Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. ... Kodak EasyShare CX6200 Digital Camera
I have been trying to transfer my video from my Lumix DMC-ZS7 to my pc. Every time I get the same message: Removed from the items to be acquired because AVCHD/AVCHD Lite videos with different TV systems are contained TV systems of application: PAL TV systems of AVCHD/AVCHD Lite videos: NTSC Could you help me to understand what this means and how to fix it as I no longer have any recording time left on my camera due to not being able to transfer and delete the current videos on my camera

Video duration I have a GE A835. I want to take video. It shows that I can only take thirty minutes with a 1 gig card. The only thing that I can think of is that there is some reason it is putting the files on the camera memory instead of the card. I have used all the settings I can find to put video on card. I know that it has to take longer than that. My PHONE will take 14 hours. I would be happpy with less quality for more time. HELP

Canon SD400 I dropped my SD400 and it will turn on, but the shutter will not retract. However, the screen comes on in color and then goes black and says no image.

DSC-W70 The camera seems to work as it should however when I take a picture, the resulting image on the LCD screen is distorted. By this I mean that lines appear horizontally across the screen. The only time that it works well is when I take it out of normal mode and set it to Multi Burst. However with Multi Burst, the flash does not work.

My lense is stuck open despite turning my camera off. On turning my camera on I am told ''turn camera on off then on'' but the lense does not retract. I am able to view all photos on the memory card as well as turn the camera on and off, however at each point when the lense should retract it stays fixed out. Can this be fixed?
This is not a joke........Use a can of compressed air and blow around the lens while it is extended. Take a relatively firm approach with this problem slap the camera into your palm two or three times. Not lens down in this case, bu ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 Digital Camera
Hi there, I dropped my Casio Exilim (EX - Z80) a while ago and the lens got stuck half out. However after a while it fixed itself and I can record videos on it perfectly but when I take photos they come out too bright, as if I'm taking photos in the sun with the flash on. Is there an easy way to fix this or am I going to have to spend a fortune? Thanks, Hollee
