I have a Pentax K 100 D. I have tried using a Flash Memory card (a Sandisk Ultra 16GB) but without success. The message 'Memory Card Error" is displayed even before I could format it. The card had previously been used to store files from my PC (where it worked perfectly) but the camera could not format it even after I had removed all the files etc by reformatting it in the PC (FAT32). Is there any way I can get to use this flash card in my camera?

Olympus E300 Hi, I've just arrived in nicaragua without my manual. My camera won't let me take a picture on any setting, on the right corner of the viewfinder there is a flashing dot underneath which says white balance. Is this normal? Would hate to be without a working camera for the next 6 weeks of my holiday. Thanks, Kate

My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.


Check your white balance settings. If they are ok, e-mail the techs at the support section of the Sony website. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T100 Digital Camera

Displays all white in all modes. Kodak V570. Turn the power on and all I can see is white. I have tried a different battery an no battery, just power cord. I know the camera good enough I can go into the menu options and select some different features without actually seeing the menu. All that seems to work fine and the lens is working ok. I can push the shutter button, the flash goes off. I can't see the photo on the camera, but I can see the photo if I put the SD card into my computer. Please

Just had my Canon Powershot s1 is flash explode in my face at a meeting with over 30 people attending. I took a picture, the flash went up and suddenly it popped so loud that people ducked. There was also a fire/smoke smell coming from the flash area. Very scary. Those witnessing said they would back me up if suit filed. Checked the batteries and they work fine. The camera will take pictures still but without a flash. Hear of anything like this before? Recall issue?
