Camera automatically asks to format or turn off. I just bought the XD memory card to use in my camera (OLYMPUS 550 UZ). I had the camera power on and proceeded to put the memory card in while the device was still on. After this, it keeps asking if would like to power off or format. I have photos I took on the memory so I do not want to format it right now.


Never insert or remove a card while the camera is on. You can try to download the pics on the card to your computer using a separate card reader. Then, format the card in the camera. ... Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!


The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W30 camera. This morning, I took a picture of my daughter, and turned the camera off. Right when I was turning it off, she asked me if she could see the picture, so I quickly turned it back on again, and now it is stuck. The lens is stuck out and the power off, and it won't do anything. I have tried taking the battery out, and putting it back in, nothing. Anyone have any ideas??

My wife purchased for me a Kodak Easy Share Z981. I charged the included batteries and loaded them per instructions. When I turned on the Camera the indicator showed 1/2 battery. I took two pictures and was out of power. I then recharged the batteries overnight and tried again with simular results. I am asking if this is typical with this camera. If so how do I go about getting my money back for this useless camera.. The serial number on my camera is KVYMN034G5600 in case there is a reca

Cameras Hello, i was just looking for some advise, im going over seas in november and really need my camera back and working. I own a Fuji S5000, mayb for like 2 years now?

I went in to kodak (without the camera) as i was strolling through the shops and just thought i would ask and they said

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.


Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

No Power After flying on a recent trip and having my camera x-rayed it acted strange. When I turned it on it asked me on screen if I would like to update the software. I selected the no option, then NO IMAGE appeared on the screen. I turned it off and back on again with the same results, update question then no image. I did this again and answered yes to the update question and it began the updating process as indicated on the screen by a bar but never made it past 50%. This went on for 5

No power I turned the camera on and the lens came out then the screen went blank. I thought the battery may be low even though it was recently charged, so I put it on the charger. The orange charge light did not come on. I removed the battery and checked it with a voltmeter and it was showing 8.4 volts. Everything points to a blown fuse or something like that. Is there a fuse in the camera? Hope you can help Neil Low

My camera won't power up with fresh batteries. It died while I was taking photos. I thought the batteries were flat so put in new batteries (two different sets), but the camera wont turn on when the start button is pressed.

Thought of removing the battery but don't wan't to take a chance on losing all my pictures.

When I power up the camera the lens opens and immediately retracts and the camera shuts off. I've attempted to push every button while turning on the camera to no avail. I also held onto the lens when it opened. Though the lens remained extended, the camera powered off. When I turned it back on the lens retracted and the camera powered off.

Power doesn't work properly. When I turn off camera with power button, lense stays out. When I turn on, the lense goes in then back out again, but after a few seconds, I get the message: "Please turn camera off then on again." If I don't do anything, the camera will turn off by itself, and the lense will go in. Battery is fully charged, and nothing dramatic happened to start this problem...
