Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Digital Camera ?

GRAINY PICTURES I got my FZ8 two weeks ago and it took beauiful pictures at first. Now all of my pix are grainy when I transfer the onto my computer to view them. I noticed that the file size of the transferred pix is now recorded in mb where as all of the pictures that are beautiful and not grainy wre recorded in kb. I must have changed a setting and now I'm not sure of how to fix this problem. Thanks, I need lessons on how to use this camera... Jo

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

Grainy pictures I have had my Nikon Coolpix S8 camera for two years. At first the pictures were all very clear and I was very happy. But the last three months they have become very grainy and my colours, as they appear on pictures taken, are not true. Do I need to change some settings? If so, please advise giving me clear directions. I am camera illiterate. Please help me. Thank you.


There are many settings which may have been accidentally changed. I suggest that the easiest way for you to go back the factory settings would be to use the "reset" facility on the menu options. This will reset the camera to the way it was when it ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

There is a good chance that the iris is stuck shut. Try tapping the side of the camera lightly to try and release it. If the camera can show you old pictures that are currently stored correctly, I would suspect the iris.\015\012\015\012 ... JVC Digital Cameras

There is no hard reset, technically removing the batteries does a hard reset. It does seem as though your imaging sensor (CCD) or the image processing circuitry has failed. If your camera is no longer under warranty then it would be in your advanta ... Digital Cameras

I put a 4.0 gb sd card into the camera slot correctly. The camera says that the card must be formatted to work correctly. I format the card, but it just tells me I need to format again. There were pictures on the card initially and after the C643 tried to format, I rechecked and there were still pictures. I deleted all the pictures, and then tried to re-format, however I still get stuck in the format again and again loop. What exactly can I do to correct this problem?

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another


From your description you would be further ahead to buy a new camera, you stated there are no repair shops where you live, and to send it away would be expensive probably costing more than a new one. The only other option is go on ebay to price a new ... Digital Cameras

They come out blurry and somewhat grainy. Any suggestions?" Can i know the reason for that and evn when i set to "auto" they come out very blurry and grainy.

I purchased a Nikon Cool Pix Camera in December 2009. In April, I was unable to take pictures for some unexplained reason. I took the camera into Best Buy to have the Geek Squad look at it. They told me it was a problem that needed to be addressed by Nikon. They said that it was obviously not a case of damage or abuse. Long story short, I sent the camera back to Nikon in May with a letter, receipt and warranty. I need to ask why, 6 months later, I still have heard absolutely nothing from yo

I have a Nikon S3000 digital camera in blue and i recently bought a Sandisk 8 gb card for it and before i had a 4 gb card, as well a Sandisk. My 4 gb card worked fine and recorded videos but my 8 gb card does take pictures but its a bit slow and it will start to record video but after ten seconds or so it will say that this card cannot be read. Any help to what settings i need to change or is this the wrong card? Thank you.


Sandisc makes cards in various speeds or "classes". For videos, it's best to use a class 6 or better card. Sounds like your new 8GB card is a class 4 or lower. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera
