Please confirm it that camera does not show live image to take picture and does it playback / show previously stored picture on memory card? Do you see Menu on LCD?

When the camera is on I can press any button and the camera goes off, then I can press any button and the camera goes on. It will take a picture but when it comes up on the screen if I push any button the camera goes off. I reset the camera with the AC Adapter and it didn't solve the problem. The zoom is always out when the camera is on or off. I can tranfer the pictures to my HP Instant Share on my computer.

I've just bought a vistaquest FS-501 Scanner. I don't have an sd card for it. I've plugged it into my xp pc (using the usb cable supplied) after installing the driver. Now the led light comes on when I open the cover but when I insert some film into the scanner no image is displayed on the screen. Does it have to have an sd card in it to make it work?the screen does work when it's first turned on but then goes off and it does matter which buttons I press it won't display the images???

Yesterday I downloaded successfully, as usual, my pictures from the camera into the computer. I made 7 more pictures last night. Today, I tried to download them, but the computer had a "non recognizable files" message. I restarted the computer (a Mac OSX), but now it wouldn't even detect the camera! I tried to see if my 10 years old pressed a button on the camera by mistake, and, after I press the "format" button in the Menu I lost even the images in the camera! 1. How can I get the computer to

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!
