Missing Pictures I inserted an old memory card into my new Vivicam 5199, now my old pictures have gone missing but not all of them and don't think i've deleted them. I don't think i have formatted my camera which states if i do i will lose all my pictures because i still have some of them.

I have recently been on vacation. I checked photos on the LCD screen after a days shooting. All was well. I have now downloaded the pictures to my computer. Photos from the first several days are missing and perhaps others too, scattered through the remaining days. When I try to review the pictures again on the LCD screen I can see the pictures I was able to download but also many blank screens with "incompatible JPEG". What does this mean and is there a way to retrieve my missing pictures fro

I have a Canon Digital Rebel EOS and when I take pictures everything works except I can't see any pictures on my view screen. When I go back to re-view them they are just black and when I view my card on my computer, the pictures are just black. When I take pictures the count on the card doesn't even go down. I am lost. I have tried many solutions that I have read but maybe I am missing something. I would be grateful for any advise.

I purchased a vivitar 8018 digital camera along with an 8 GB micro SD card. Once the card is inserted and I try to take a picture the camera screen flashes card protected and won't let me take or save any pictures. Please help me figure out what is going on since I am in Puerto Rico and am missing out on some great picture opportunities.

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!

The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

My LCD dose not display anything. If I take a picture nothing shows up at all only a black screen. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 is about 2 and half years old. Please help and many thanks My shutter button has popped off and I use a chair pin and tape. It works ok but you do not get the half press focus option only staight to picture.

Unless it has recently been dropped or the screen cracked, the LCD power drive circuit has failed. Your batteries sound OK if it is taking pictures. 2 and a half years is not an unreasonable life for this camera. I would spend my money and time wo ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera

Hey there, i dont know what happened with my Olympus camera, but whenever i put the memory card into it it will turn on but freeze (ex: the screen will just go black but the lens expands) if i take out the memory card then it works fine. Any help? Also i was cleaning out my card and deleted the main folder where the pictures were saved (it made 2 because there were too many pictures in the first one) the first one and the second one had different names..does that have anything to do with my came

Brutal, it sounds as if you are or were formatting and "cleaning out the card" on the computer. If this is a correct assumption then you need to back up a little and reformat the memory card to the camera. If you have no luck your really have it corr ... Olympus FE-4000 Digital Camera

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?

From searching the internet, it sounds like the lens needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair would be about as much as buying a new camera.  thanks for responding.  now i have to go thru "what to buy" again....... ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have a GE 8.0 megapixel camera E840s. Have always been able to download pictures onto computer with no problems. Now after connecting to computer, my camera says "connecting" but doesn't do anything. Then I get a message about options and if I pick "import photos" it will then begin to import ALL photos which are already on the computer rather than the most current. We deleted many photos to make room, thinking this would help. What's my problem? Thanks.

Hello, Just got back from Hawaii and took my Lumix Ts2 camera snorkeling every day. The first few days I had no problems, but the last half of my vacation, condensation covered the lens, and my pictures look like I'm shooting through a fog. The fog would dissippate after 45 minutes or so in the sun, but I missed many moments I would have liked to capture. The next day, I would go out and have the same problem. I worry that moisture is trapped inside the camera around the lens and no way to g

Please can you advise me? The fault appeared without apparent reason, and is that when you take a photo, thin horizontal black lines appear, and when you transfer to the PC the lines are still there. The lines only appear after you have taken the picture - whilst you are viewing the subject through the viewfinder everything seems just fine. Many thanks for anything light you can throw on this, otherwise very happy with the camera. Tony
