I'd like to set my Stylus 790SW back to default settings in hopes that my video feature will work. Right now the video doesn't record. It's just a picture. I've been messing with this camera for 4 hours and cant get this thing back to original settings. Is there a magic trick? If I send this to Olympus to be looked at, it will be it's 3rd trip since to the New York repair shope since I bought it 2 years ago.
Roll the dial to picture mode, press the menu button and you will see "reset" on the left. Select "Reset" and say "Yes" - this will reset your camera to default settings. \015\012\015\012Here's a link to the manual if you need more help:\015\01 ... Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera
Video recording I just bought my camera yesterday. When I am trying to record video indoors, the picture is completely dark. I have tried every "white balance" option, but none of them change anything. I can record a perfect video outside...if it is sunny!

Protected feature The pictures on my camera are somehow protected, and now it wont allow me to remove or take any pictures. When I access the protected feature, it won't give me an option to unprotect. It shows up in gray and it jups right over the word "Protected".
There are 2 probable solutions.\015\012\015\0121. The images are "protected" by the camera & will show "locked" when you try to erase them.\015\012\015\0122. The SD card in the camera is locked.\015\012\015\012The solution to 1 is to unlock the image ... Vivitar ViviCam 6330s Digital Camera

I purchased this camera about a month ago to prepare for my trip to Egypt. The pictures come out nice, but when I recorded a video, I can hear a sound like someone is walking on a squeky floor. Also, if I use the zoom while using video, I sound is also heard a lot louder. How can I record video shots without having the background noise? Hurry! I will be leaving soon.

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.
First press power button for 15 seconds .Then remove memory card from it may be your memory card has some issue.also press reeset button on camera some camera has reset button.start your camera without memory card. ... Digital Cameras

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary object (let's say, a person speaking at a podium a meter or so away) and the video will be in focus. However, even though the person in the video isn't moving except for subtle hand gestures, the camera seems to start to try to focus on something else deeper in the background or closer in the foreg
