My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

I have a Sony DSC-H1 camera and have recently removed photos from it's memory card - the same way that I've always done it before without any troubles. Now, when I put in the memory stick and turn on the camera, the screen shows "no file in this folder" and won't go any further. I've tried to go through the menu and reformat the memory stick but it didn't make any difference. What do I need to do to continue to use this memory stick?

Yesterday I took some pictures and when I reviewed on camera they all show up. However when I go to download on computer, one photo wont show up. It just shows as an icon. It also has sound on it which I dont know how to remove. I have tried to copy the photo, but it copies with sound and I still cant open the image. Is there anything I can do to get image? I dont understand why it shows up on the camera, but I cant transfer it off the card. Help!
