Having problems with your Vtech Kidizoom Digital Camera ?

My son is unable to take pics on his camera but can record videos, why is this? and do you think this can be solved without me having to send it off?


Answers :

I don't know this camera, but it sounds like you have just got the mode switch set to video. On some cameras there is a slide or rotary switch to set this, and on others it is toggled by pressing a button or you set it in a menu. It is not always obvious what you are setting as the labels are often just icons that look like a still camera or a movie camera instead of a text description.

When recording two vhs tapes back to back on one disk, it will not finalize. But, will finalize if one tape is recorded. Mind you now each tape only has one half an hour recording on them, and the disk is capable one hour of recording time. I'm using dvd-r disks, and have tried everything I could think of, and have used many disks to try and solve this problem.


The disc requires some space for the finalizing process. Two half-hour tapes take up all the room on the disc and leave nothing for the process. You'll need to record at a lower speed. ... Digital Cameras

Hello. When I download pictures to my computer, the camera sends,in addition to current photos, a series of photos I took last year. These older photos do not show up when I review photos on the camera so I can't view them to delete them (which I thought I already did some time ago.) I have an XD card in the camera but I don't think the old photos were recorded on that...Can you help?

My camera won't turn on but it'll let me view all my pictures just fine. I think their might be a problem with the shutter because it sticks out a bit. When I try to turn my camera on it'll show the FujiFilm Welcome Screen and then just go to a black screen. If there is anyone who knows how to fix this without taking it to get fixed professionally please tell me, i would be very grateful of that! If not, and you know where they can fix it (other then sending it back to the company) please inform

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures. Have tried using a new head cleaning tape. Do you think this is very dirty heads or more serious? How can I fix it if head cleaner tape doesn't?

Erratic shutdown of Panasonic ag dvc7 camcorder due to dew sensor malfunction. Have tried the obvious solution with hair dryer. Can periodically resolve by removing/replacing battery or by smacking the case. Makes me think it is a loose connection, but have no idea where to look for connection. Any way to disable this dew sensor or repair without sending back to factory?


Based on vibration (smacking the case) sometimes resolving, it seems like you're on track with the problem being a loose wire or solder connection. Other than going in and fixing that, there isn't much that can be done. There's no setpoint or menu ... Digital Cameras

The buttons on my 4 month old Nikon S8000 don't work. I can take a photo but can't zoom in, I can't view the photos, can't record a video, can't turn on the flash (or any of the other setting on the rotating wheel), can't go to menu, scene selector or delete a photo (which doesn't matter as I can't view the photos anyway!). The shop I bought it from is 130 miles away as I've moved away and no other camera shops are near here, so if possible I'd like to solve this without having it sent away! Tha

The shutter speed priority setting on my Canon 40D keeps jumping to a different speed that I haven't set. E.g - set at 200, jumps to 25 when I go to take a photo. I have spoken to Canon regarding the problem and they have suggested that I clear the user settings. This initially solved the problem for all of an hour, but the problem has now started up again. I'll probably be sending it in, as I think it might be a problem with the hardware, just thought I'd check here first. Any suggestio

JVC Hard Disk Camcorder (Everio) GZ-MG155U, after break in file management, came out of it showing no recorded material (I had 6 hours of material recorded on it at the time) and though the on-screen read-out claims the disk is empty (i.e. 7 hrs of ultra-fine record time available), trying to record results in error message "recording failure." Tried "CLEAN-UP" command without success; am reluctant to reformat drive until I can find out if my 6 hours of recorded material might be recoverable.

My Sony Steady Shot DSC-H5 says "recording" when I am taking regular pictures. Uses up the memory stick quite quickly, although it lets me take about 30 pictures...!!! Doesn't actually record, actually takes pictures, just says "recording". Think I must have accidentally programmed something wrong.


There are some multi burst programs etc which show RECORDING, but actually store pictures. You can always do a reset you know (initialize from the camera SETUP menu) - that should help. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

I have a Panasonic camcorder NV-GS70B which writes to mini DV tapes. I am now finding that on playback of tapes I have recorded it is losing the audio signal on some tapes. Some of these tapes I know originally had an audio signal recorded. Someone has suggested there may be a build up of oxide on the heads which might have been transferred to some of the tapes. I have tried a head cleaning tape (twice) but without effect. I have two concerns: 1) the camera - can it easily be repaired 2)
