Sounds like you will need to format the memory card as the card has become corrupted. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error message and the card can be used again.

Invalid File... Hi, everyone... Recently, it's happening the following error when I try to download the photos from the camera to the computer: Error reading DSCxxxx.JPG: Invalid Parameters. This error does not happen with all the pictures of the camera. If I put the card into a reader, I can not copy any picture, all of them give error on reading. Even formatting or replacing the card, the error remains. Does anyone know what this error means ? Tks a lot !!!

My AOL Photocam (made by Pretec I think) worked fine yesterday. When I tried to re-insert the PNY Technologies 128mb compactflash after dumping pictures to my pc, it gave me an error message: "card error, error code 004".

What could I do or where could I find a manual for a product this old?

Horizontal lines OK, we fixed the black screen and black pictures, but I'm still getting a strong pattern of horizontal lines in my pics. Pictures shot with manual setting adjustments are better than those on automatic, and the lines don't show too much with a strong flash (but if the flash is too strong then the image is washed out).

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

Lens Error put my mini tripod on to my camera and apparently the legs are not stable enough when I left it on the top of the table.
