This is to inform that I am having Casio Digital Camera Exilim EX-Z500 for last few years. The same was giving very good pictures, but last week, it suddenly started malfunctioning. Whenever, we took indoor pictures, they were coming out well as per attached pictures (CIM2831 & CIM2826) but when the camera was taken outside in the day light, though the picture was very clear on the LCD screen but after clicking, the picture is overshadowed with white light (as per other attached pictures).


Some things to try:\0121. Go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.\0122. Check the ISO setting....you may have it set too high for outdoor pictures.\0123. Check the "exposure compensation"...it should be at "0". ... Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

Picture error I have a problem with my Olympus SP 500UZ. When I take a couple of pictures on one day. Shut the camera down and start it later on to take new pictures. The screen turns blue when I want to see the pictures. It gives the message: Picture Error or Fatal error and every photo on the memory card is gone! I send it to the Olympus repair for three times now, but they tell me every time that there's nothing wrong with the camera. Is this a known problem??

Within the last few days, suddenly when I take a picture a picture there is a little red eye that is flashing on the left hand of the screen and the little green light at the top is flashing also and there is hesitation of about 15 seconds before a picture is taken and then the picture will have a redish tint to it when it processes. This just started and I have changed batteries out and powered the camera on and off several times and I have checked all of the settings, and still cannot figure


It sounds to me that the timer is on. That would certainly explain the blinking lights and the 15 second delay. There should be a button with what looks like a small clock on it to turn this feature on and off. You should also be able to find it i ... Digital Cameras

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black. Can it be a memory card problem (since it's a new one, and I didn't swap it, to verify that). Thanks - Shlomi [email protected]


Someone else posted that Canon fixed it for free. \015\012\015\012Here's a link to the Canon service site that explains their take on the problem. Yes they will fix it if it is indeed a CCD issue.\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

My Olympus Evolt slr 500 is showing 4 rows (up and down) of 4 green dots in each row. Suddenly this started occurring and when I take a picture, it shows the shot and thumbnail on the memory card, however when I look at the bigger picture it shows half of the picture and the rest is grey. I've tried different memory cards and it does the same. I think the green dots are the issue. What can I do to fix this?

Blue skies How do you get the camera to produce a landscape picture that has a pretty blue sky and a nice green background? Every time I try I can get one or the other. If the sky is blue with fluffy clouds, then the green landscape is too dark. If the landscape looks wonderful, then the sky is white and totally washed out.

This is going to be an internal problem. It sounds like you might have two problems going on. The zoom switch might be broken, and jammed in the on position. As for previewing your pictures, this could be a slightly loose ribbon connector from ... Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

My Z1 suddenly started having white lines across the photos I take. Some are narrow and some wider, virtually wiping out the image. I thought it might be the memory card but it happens with a different one too. Might it be the battery? There is no indication that the battery is low. What else can it be? The camera is about 3 years old and this just started last summer. I can send you a picture to demonstrate the issue.
