Answers :

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I'm not sure what is relevant and what isn't but... Two days ago I tried taking a picture on my timer and all of them came out blurry. I wasn't sure why this was so I started poking around on the camera and decided to reset all factory settings. Then that evening I tried to upload my pictures to my computer as usual. The software (Picasa) locked up. I tried taking the camera out of the cradle and turning it on but it wouldn't turn on. I rebooted my computer and tried turing the camera on


Sometimes a camera software upgrade will help, but it is hard to find software online. I first would look on manufacture's website to see if there is any driver updates you can download to your pc, then do the same with picasa software. Also make sur ... Digital Cameras

Dsc wx5 Hi guys, maybe some sweet guy in here can help me. When i take a "standard" picture the camera tunes up the light so much that I can´t see anything on the picture it almost looks like a blank white page. This only happens when i take a standard picture. I can do panorama picture, 3D picture and video recording perfectly.

I recently bought the camera and was able to take 45 pictures without a memory card. I then put a memory card in from my phone and it allowed me to take pictures. However, once I took the card out and put it back into the camera, it now comes up card locked and can only take 3 pictures without it, even though I've deleted everything off it!


Be sure that the Lock switch on the memory card in your camera is set to unlock. If it is unlocked then try and see if you can reformat the card with the camera. ... Samsung Digital Cameras

Hey. I bought a new camera some days ago with a new Digix 4gb SDHC memory card. I went to Disney World and took normally a lot of pictures. From one moment to another, the camera gives me the message "Memory card error" and won't let me take nor view pictures. I tried removing the memory card and everything. I checked and It isn't locked or something. Also, I tried using a memory card reader on my laptop, and it says I have to format to read the card. I REALLY don't want to lose the pictures.

The first thing that may be complicating things is, can your laptop read SDHC cards, or just SD cards? If the laptop is asking you to format it, then probably it's working, but be really sure, before you continue.Check the co ... Digital Cameras

I have a Nikon D80 and the camera locks up and won't take a picture - the F keeps blinking and it won't lock into a f3.5 or whatever so you can take a pciture - why would this happen ? I generally use it in the auto mode - sometimes I try to switch to manual mode - it will allow me to take a pciture then switch back to auto and it seems to work for awhile - but it will just go back into lockdown mode and it is very frustrating -

Kodak V1003 A few weeks ago, shortly after I'd taken a pic, the lens refused to retract and the camera switched off. It has never been dropped or had anything spilled on it. Strangely, when I press the button furthest left the camera comes on, allows me to view pictures on the card, set the time etc - everything except take pictures. Again when I try to switch off, the lens does not retract. Does this not suggest a software glitch of some kind?


No, unfortunately that is a problem with the hardware, software would not prevent the lens from retracting.\015\012\015\012If it is within manufacturer's warranty (usually 1 year) take it to any Best Buy they will send it out to the mfg f ... Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera

Just purchased Nikon S570 less than a week ago. After taking 10 or so pics today while out on a hike, the camera locked up saying it could not read the card. It would not allow me to take anymore pics. It would not allow downloading of pics off the card either as it locked up my computer when I tried to download the pics.

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden. The camera took about 8 pictures, then after turning it off for about 2 hours, it would not take any more pictures. This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.
