Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX P90 Digital Camera ?

I take photos which look great on the camera. When I download the photos to an HP PC they look great for a minute and then disappear behind a grey screen. It doesn't happen to the same pictures all the time.


Answers :

Are the images printing OK? If so, you may be running out of memory resources --at times it turns off the graphics display when RAM is scarce or you are running low on virtual memory

Try upgrading RAM and increasing the virtual memory

Also clear out temp and junk files from system

please let me know..if you wanna know how to increase virtual memory and remove temp files

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?

My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.


The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.

Sony DSC-S700 when turned on sometimes the screen is blurry and pink toned with blurry grey lines running accross the screen. Photos turn out the same. Happens intermittently. Have changed batteries, checked to ensure the dial on the top was centered on Auto Adjustment setting. Doesn't matter what setting display looks the same: pink and blurry with the lines. Checked all the settings in the menu. Not sure why it does this...worried it may be a board problem.

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry. I was walking through a tunnel under a river and I thought the temperature had changed enough to cause the lens to fog up. However, after cleaning the lens, the blurriness was still there. I could look through the photos on the camera and the photos taken prior to noticing the blurriness are clear and look great. After two days of being inside at room temperature,
