Having problems with your Jazz Digital Cameras ?

I have a Jazz HDV149 Digital Camcorder. when you turn it on and insert a memory card it asks you to format it. Yes is automatically highlighted but when you hit the center button to format nothing happens. help


Answers :

Try changing it to "No". I always have trouble figuring out whether highlighted means light or dark on these menus.

If it still doesn't format, maybe you are using a memory card with too high a capacity. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manual for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Polaroid Model a815 just bought yesterday: I took pictures with it and turned it off to get another item to photograph. When I turned it back on I got "Card Error" then a screen to Format Card: Cancel/Execute. I could not move to hit the cancel. It would only take Execute. It sat there "Busy" until it timed out. When I turned it back on I was back to the Card Error. I removed the Card and tried a different one. None of the buttons would work, but I still had the Format Screen showing. According

Did not drop or hit the camera, but on the P position cannot get a clear focus as it is mostly white. Depressing the Expose button half was shows clear for a moment before getting ready to Shoot. On the Automatic position it is fine
