Someone accidently held a magnet over my old Sony DSC-T1 it no longer has an ability to take pictures. Just a blank screen. The old photos are still on the memory card I tried replacing the memory card and that is not the problem. It was a small magnet for a board. The screen still works in terms of being able to review the old photos, but when the door is slid down and the camera turned on, there is no live image.

So i put in an old photo card and it comes up in the display as "no image" on a black screen. When i go to take a shot, it reads "memory Card Full". What the ****. i already hit all the buttons, with the only change coming from menu which would only allow me to select the resume and transition options. I seriously appreciate this.

No image can sometimes mean that the card's file system is buggy and it needs to be formatted before you can use it. Please get me the make and model of the camera so that I can tell you how to do this.Sai. ... Digital Cameras

Hello, I have a Cannon IXUS 95 IS. I accidentally removed some very important photos recently and I was wondering if there is any way to recover them.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera
