Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera ?

ACCESS message When taking pictures, an ACCESS message flashes and the pictures are then stored to my camera and not my memory stick. Sometime the ACCESS message will just keep flashing. Any advice? Thanks

Hey soccerdixie,
\015\012 I would first make sure that your memory stick is not full, and if it is I would upload your images to a computer and then format your memory card in the camera. If this is not the problem I would make sure that your memory stick is not set to the write protect setting, by looking at the write protect switch on the back of your memory stick. I hope this helps!

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos.

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?

Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.

I have a Casio EZ-Z1050 10.1 megapixel digital camera and am very pleased with it.

Advice as to how to delete from on the camera's on board memory would be very gratefully received. Thank you. Ron Bernstein.
