My Sony cyber-shot DSC-T70/T75/T200 will only take 14 pictures and then it says no memory space in internal memory and doesn't allow me to take more. I have tried deleting all pictures, and I have formatted internal memory, several times over but can still only get 14 pictures maximum.

I just received a Cannon Rebel for xmas and it was taking pictures just fine then it wouldn't autofocus and take a clear picture. I do not know if I accidentally hit a button when holding the camera but I cannot get it to take a clear pic. It also flashes a busy signal across the top of the viewing screen when it is flashing. I tried to find the fix in the guide, but nothing helped. Thanks!
Take it back and get an exchange- it's too early in the game to be getting error messages. It shouldn't be flashing busy, unless it's having trouble writing to a faulty card, or some other obscure defect. If it's too inconvenient to have it exch ... Digital Cameras
I have a handful of blank pictures on my camera that have appeared as an apparent side-effect of taking normal pictures, and I can't delete them. When I try and delete them on my camera, it says 'this picture cannot be deleted', and I can't delete them on the PC either because it just says the files can't be deleted. How do I get rid of them?
Go through the menus on the camera and use the format option or, on the PC, right click on the card icon in My Computer to bring down the Format option and try that. Hope it helps ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS7 Digital Camera
Canon SD400 I dropped my SD400 and it will turn on, but the shutter will not retract. However, the screen comes on in color and then goes black and says no image.
