    My A520 powers up alright, but when a picture is taken, there is no image in the viewfinder. The flash goes off but no picture shows in the viewfinder.

    My viewfinder is a blank, black screen and no image appears, although the flash does work. All the menu icons are displayed but the screen remains black and will not show the subject image. Even when using the manual viewfinder, nothing is recorded on the memory card.

    I am also having the same problem with the Powershot A620 with 7.1 mega pixels. Black screen, shows the menu and icons on the screen but no picture registers on the screen or on the memory card.

I can view the pics i take clearly but when i switch modes to take a pic the screen is black and i hear a clicking sound.. olympusfe-220


I beleive your Memory Card is the problem. Take it out and leave it out when turning it on and see what it does. Mine was doing the same thing untill I did the above and it took a picture with internal memory just fine. If it works, then you need to format the memory card using your camera setup menu. When you turn the camera on with memory card installed quickly push the green play button and it should stay on for you to see the menu.

My dsc-w80 keeps saving all of my pics to the internal memory


Set camera on playback mode, you will see any saved picture in internal memory. Insert memory card and lcd screen will show you either blue screen if memory card has no picture files or will show you picture in memory card. That means memory card is intact with camera and ready to store fresh picture.
Set camera to camera mode and take few fresh pictures and check them in playback mode.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

When I try to take a picture it says


Download any pics from the internal memory that you want to save. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" or "initialize"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and see if things improve. You may need to do the same procedure with the card.

"memory card can' tbe used. Card may be damaged."


For some reason the card has corrupted. Maybe it's bent or something similar - or it's just an odd problem. Try first to power down and take out the card. Check the contacts for any dirt or similar and clean. Put the card back and try if it works.

If it doesn't work you might still be able to download the pictures to your computer with a card reader

When I insert the memory card into my kodak m1093is camera it takes a long to time for the screen to come on and will not let me take pictures for a long time. When the memory card is not inserted there...


Do you have pics on the internal memory? If so, download them and format the internal memory. Is your memory card almost full of pics? If so, download them and then format the card in the camera.

Do you still have the pics on the memory card? If you do take the mem card out and the "format" the internal memory of your camera and then reset it. See if that helps if not you are going to have to Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. Take mem card out. Turn on camera press menu go to setup tab go up until you see format press right arrow and highlight format press set...it will say "Busy, please wait" Once you are back to where you can take pics press menu go to setup tab go up to reset press right arrow & highlight reset press set. See if that works for you.
