DC-3185 Frozen A really odd problem is my son's DC3185 is frozen with a live LCD and the Flash in auto mode except the flash icon "flashes" I see a good LCD image of what I am looking at but can not take a picture. The led light is also red. I have installed new batteries and it didn't help. I inserted a flash card and the screen indicated the Flash icon but the flash keeps flashing on and off and the red led light stays on. When I plug it in to a USB port I get the computer to see it as a e

I can turn my sd1000 on, the flash works, everything works. The only thing is that I can't see what's going on through the lcd, but when I take a picture the picture does come up. The funny thing is that if I'm recording a video, I can see what's going on in the lcd. It's only not working during picture taking. Everything else works, it plays back and everything.

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

I bought my camera today from ebay and I do not have a battery to switch it on and check. I attached my 18-135 mm lens to the camera. I tried to look through the viewfinder and I cant see a thing. Everything from the viewfinder looks grayish and blurry. I do not have battery right now to check the camera when it's on and neither I can restore the camera to its default factory settings.

White Screen: I turned on my camera shortly after replacing the batteries, but when I looked at my screen, it was completely white. I turned it off, then turned it on again, and the same thing happened. Later, I tried to see if it'll work after I connected it to my computer, but the screen was still white. The camera has been dropped a couple of times, but it wasn't anything severe - just a couple of centimeters from the ground, and I'm pretty sure the screen isn't cracked (I didn't see an

When I try to take a picture, the LCD displays a lot of colorfull squiggly lines instead of the scene that I want to capture.

Just bought the ViviCam X014. Installed batteries and SD card. The camara will turn on and the LED screen will illuminate (becomes white) but that's about all the thing will do. No image appears in the LED screen. I cannot zoom in, or out, and pressing the Mode button (or any button for that matter) does nothing. There was no user manual with the camara, just the basic quick start guide, which has provided no information on what to do. What am I missing?

Are these regular batteries or rechargeables? Are they fully charged? If they are regular batteries that came with the camera, test them to be sure they didn't die in the packaging. If all fails, return the camera. ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Sure Shot 115u II Date 35mm Film Camera. No manual. How do I fix the blinking icons on the LED screen? There are a series of dashes along the top of the screen.
