Samsung TL205 Camera turns on but the screen never shows any sign of light. Screen is not able to display anything. Can this model be reset?


Many times you can turn the screen off in the menu up settings. Some cameras have a physical button on the camera to do so. Look your camera over carefully, and read the menu settings in your manual. If you don't have that, scroll through all your settings and see if you've turned off the LCD.

E:61:10 problem


I had the same problem, however mine was showing a slightly different error message it was E:62:11. Anyway a few of the websites online had postings from different people who had experienced the same problem, and they said to hit the camera lightly on the side where the cameras battery is located. I tried this right after I turned the camera on while the camera was booting up and it worked. So you can try doing this -- hopefully this helps

Display date & time on developed pictures


When you say it's displayed on the screen, do you mean while it's in playback mode, it's embedded there?

If not, you will have to put your resoltion in postcard mode and make sure in menu that your date or date/time stamp is turned on.

To get to your resolution settings, turn camera on to shooting mode, hit function/set button and arrow down to the bottom left corner where it will show your resolution (L,M,S, etc) and this is where you will find postcard mode.

This setting is the only one you can use date time stamp and will show up in prints, but only good for 4 x 6 prints, anything larger will not be good resolution, it will be pixelated because it's only enough quality for a small print.

Hope this helps!
