Hi, I have a Kodak C913 and have been having an issue with photos I take disappearing. It seems to be #3 though #5 or 6 and they just are gone. I changed my memory card but it still happens. I am not sure what I can do about it. The camera worked fine for the first 18 months I had it.

Try formatting the card in the camera ( after you empty the images off it! )This can help if there is any random data on the card causing problems. ... Kodak EasyShare C913 Digital Camera

My FE-370 Olympus digital camera will no longer turn on. I used it to take some photos, turned it off and when I went to power it up again about 30 minutes later nothing happened. I tried fully charging the battery but that made no difference and my PC doesn't recognize it as an external hard-drive either. It seems to be completely dead. I have been able to access my memory card thru a printer and all photos are there, right up until it stopped working. It seems like a power problem. Do yo

Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,

You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO. ... Ricoh Caplio GX Digital Camera

Memory card I have an Olympus FE 220. I took a heap of photo's and when i went to view the photos it gave me the option to turn power off or format memory card. So I put the card into my lap top and it only gave me the option to format card. This has happened before. Does it have something to do with the battery getting low on the camera cause that is when it seems to happen.

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?

Please reset camera through Reset option in Menu. This will set camera on default settings and any glitch in settings will be removed.Thanks. ... Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

During download of photos to my PC, the camera switches itself off and the download stops. This has never happened before. I have had the camera for 18 months and downloaded many photos from it. I have tried to download the 180 photos currently on the camera three times now, each time recharging the battery before I attempt to download. The first time I tried to download the 180 photos, 26 were downloaded. The second time, it was 36. Today it was 80 photos. But of course none of them are downl

I am missing a large group of photos on my SD memory card but the photos that are on the card BEFORE and AFTER the missing group of photos are numbered consecutively with no gap in the numbering sequence. How could this happen? The missing group is pretty big (100+ photos) and the camera seemed to be operating normally at the time. Any ideas/ explanations/suggestions? Thanks!

I previously thought I'd lost some photos as they seemed to disappear from my camera weeks and months ago. I download photos regularly. The lost photos have now shown up - am I right to assume that they are on the built in memory? When I try to down load the photos I can see on the playback none show up.

If they are on the internal memory, they will show up when there is no card in the camera. If you would like to keep these pics, there is a feature called "copy" in the menu which allows you to copy the internal memory to a memory card. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 Digital Camera

Can't upload pics from easyshare m340 to easyshare software. Camera is 3 months old. I have downloaded pictures once before but for some reason I can't seem to get it to work this time. I hear a sound when I plug in the camera to the computer, but nothing happens. I don't see an error message anywhere. I've only uploaded pictures one time before and I seem to remember it starting on its own once it was plugged in.

I own a D90 and of late have had problem getting the shutter to actually fire and take a photo at times. It will work sometimes and not at others. I have tried changing the memory card - putting it on manual etc but still won't work. The battery is fully charged. It occasionally comes up with an r05 and r21 code in the R lower box and a flashing F at the top R when this seems to happen. I haven't played with the settings all that much - just since this has begun happening. Can you make any sugge

The r codes you mention are related to speeds of buffering information onto the memory card. A high ISO NR setting on the camera has a huge impact.... the cross over point is 800 ISO. If you have it on, and are on 800 or over, the remaining buffer ca ... Nikon Digital Cameras

When I print out photos, there are faint yellow bands across the bottom of the picture. It doesn't happen when I print other documents on the printer, so i think its the camera. You can't seem them when you look at the photo on the camera or on the laptop.

Go to a Walmart and use a Kodak Picture Kiosk to print out some pics that had the yellow banding and see if the prints have it. If not, then your printer is at fault. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 Digital Camera

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off. I have tried recharging the batteries to test if the problem is with the batteries, but it makes no difference. It's about 6 months old, do you think it can be repaired? Thanks Robyn

Hi,\015\012 First check your warranty - you may be able to return it for repair under that - and yes it needs a repair. The metering system is now broken, The chances are you'll recieve a new one as it is more cost effective to them to do this. ... Olympus FE-270 Digital Camera

Nikon D50 I have been reading through Fixya to try and find a similar problem. I have a Nikon D50 and have been using it with no problems for over a year. However, now when I try to take photos in AF, nothing happens. It locks up. So, I have to try to take photos in manual. Some come out OK and others not. Very frustrating as I missed lots of xmas pics. When I hit the AF-L button, it seems to work in AF mode. Any suggestions?? [email protected]

Fuzzy Images Hello! Hi have the NIKON CooPix S7C. I would so appreciate some help. Majority of images I shoot are fuzzy if photo taken indoors.
