Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Hi I was just given a Vivitar Vivicam3350. It is used but I am unable to use it. It turns on but when I try to take a pic, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

Sounds like it is working order.

\015\012A single beep should mean that a picture was taken, but the display should change from 26 to 25 indicating that one less position is available.
\015\012
\015\012Apparently a double-beep would mean that sufficient light is not available to take a picture, so a picture is not taken. Could this be what is happening to you?

\015\012There are some other indicators in the display area that might give you a clue to the problem.

I was using my M763 model and taking pictures just fine. Then, I went to take a pic and the LCD was dark. I clicked the review button, nothing happened, so I turned it off and it wouldn't turn back on. When I try to turn it on it flashes green for a nano sec, then red a couple of times, then nothing. When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?

Nikon D50 I have been reading through Fixya to try and find a similar problem. I have a Nikon D50 and have been using it with no problems for over a year. However, now when I try to take photos in AF, nothing happens. It locks up. So, I have to try to take photos in manual. Some come out OK and others not. Very frustrating as I missed lots of xmas pics. When I hit the AF-L button, it seems to work in AF mode. Any suggestions?? [email protected]

I have a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm trying to shoot a photo of my sleeping 2 year old, so the light is obviously low. I have the cameral on manual mode. I used the light meter to obtain my exposure, but when I push the button to take the picture, nothing happens. On the right side of the light meter, there is a blinking green light when I try to take the picture. What am I doing wrong? I'm out of town and I forgot my camera manual; I think I remember something in there about troubleshooting this parti

My son has had his camera since Christmas and has used it to take pictures at two events. Once was Christmas and the other was a few hours at the Aquarium. The problem is that the button you push to take pictures does not work. You hold it down and nothing happens. I tried taking it back with the receipt they told me to contact the manufacturer. I cannot find a contact number for them. (Vivitar Vivicam 7022)

Hi, I am trying to use the self timer function on my Nikon D90 but it doesn't seem to work.

My eos400d is taking photos but the lcd screen is not turning on at all. I cannot preview photos or access the menu. When it first did it the cf card started flashing wen I tried to take a photo.

I have a FE4010 camera. Whenever I try and turn on the camera, the lens barrel comes in and out 3 times and then retracts and the camera shuts off. I assume it is sand because after using it in somewhat sandy conditions this happened. I've tried tapping and twisting when I can hold the lens and stop it from retracting, but nothing works. Any ideas besides taking it apart?

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera. I have not had it that long and just use the IA mode and I know it worked before; can I reset the camera back to factory settings? I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.

My son cleared the sd card for my dimage e323 using my laptop after down loading the pics. When I re-inserted the card in the camera it now says it needs to be formated. I have clicked "yes" and also gone to the menu and formated it, neither way will work and let me take pictures. I even tried reformating the sd card on my laptop, and reloaded all the pics back on, but nothing works. What can I do to correct this problem?

Troubleshooting problems I have a canon powershot s60. I tried to take a picture earlier and the screen is completely white. The camera turns on, the battery is fully charged and there is nothing wrong with the digital card. THe camera wasn't dropped nor did it get wet. I keep trying to turn it off and on, but all I get is a white screen. No images. But there are 900 images on the camera card and i just used it this morning. Please help. Thanks, Shannon


Take a picture with the camera and download it. If the pictures also shows up white then this probably is a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's w ... Canon PowerShot S60 Digital Camera

Hi, I have a canon sx200 and yesterday I took my memory card - Kingston 8GB - and got some pics printed at one of those albertsons machines and since then when I try to take a picture it says " card locked" on the screen and it won't work (it won't let me erase the pic either...) how can I fix it? Did the machine do it to my card? (I have used teh same machine before and never had this happen) Thank you, Bianca

I am using a sd card ,which I used with my Samsung digital camera , and the kodak is telling me to format the card. When I try to reformat the card nothing happen it keep going to screen to reformat card. Is something wrong with the card or the camera.


If the card is more than 1GB it is probably an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible. ... Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera

I recently bought a Ricoh Caplio RR770 digital camera. I have found that many of my images have a grey bar covering the bottom 20% of the pictures. Not all of them turned out this way, but a fair ammount which pretty much makes the pic useless when trying to post. This is very annoying and I have no idea how this happens or how to remedy it. I know the pics themselves are fine because after I took them, I looked at them and there was nothing wrong. Only when I upload the image somewhere does thi

I have a new D40 and I have had the same problem twice already on two separate occasions. I go to click to take a picture, and it does not take. Nothing happens at all. I try again and nothing happens. I try to refocus, but it does not help. I have to turn it off and on again to get it to work and click to take the picture. Thinking of if I should get the D3000 instead. Any thoughts on that and why this happens?
