Having problems with your Pentax Digital Cameras ?

I have a pentax optio A30 with 2.0 gb card. I took pictures last night of my grandsons birthday and was viewing them in the camera as I took them. Tonight I went to put them on my computer and i get a message on my camera that says " card not formatted" and I cannot find my pictures in the camera, and I cannot upload them at all - I was just looking at them last night. I have not done anything with my camera. HELP!!! How could I have lost my grandson's pictures when they were all there last nig


Answers :

I hope you didn't format the card because that erases the pics forever. You could get a separate card reader and try to download them that way. You could take the card to a store like Walmart and plug the card into one of their picture making machines. When your pics show up, you can print them or even make a cd of them.

Lost Pictures I took a few pictures one night. Two days later I viewed these photos and they were on the camera. The battery was exhausted.

Help, I took about 80 pictures on my olympus sp-350 camera, an xd card was in it. Took my camera out the following night and half way through it seemed as if the camera switched to taking pics on the card/ internal memory (not sure which!) because I could only view the last ones taken and not those before. I have been onto photo rescue and that only recovered the ones that were on the card. I pray to God I haven't erased them they were taken on a special holiday in fRANCE! PLEASE help

I have a Nikon S200 digital camera. I took some pictures last night, using the flash. When I flicked back through them, I found a problem. I would look at a picture as it was focusing, and after a few seconds when it was focused, it would distort in all different colors. Also, when I try to import those photos into iPhoto on my Macbook Pro, it says that the files are unrecognizable.

We are now on our 3rd 5.0 bushnell night sentry camera and the night pictures are black.

This is to inform that I am having Casio Digital Camera Exilim EX-Z500 for last few years. The same was giving very good pictures, but last week, it suddenly started malfunctioning. Whenever, we took indoor pictures, they were coming out well as per attached pictures (CIM2831 & CIM2826) but when the camera was taken outside in the day light, though the picture was very clear on the LCD screen but after clicking, the picture is overshadowed with white light (as per other attached pictures).


Some things to try:\0121. Go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.\0122. Check the ISO setting....you may have it set too high for outdoor pictures.\0123. Check the "exposure compensation"...it should be at "0". ... Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera
