Afraid not. Many cameras will not display edited images, and rotating counts as an edit. If you still have the original picture (before the first rotation) then you can copy that to the card. Otherwise you'll only be able to view the picture on a computer (or other output device, like a picture frame) and/or print it.

Camedia C-5050 zoom won't take pics


Is your memory full? Does the camera attampt to focus when you push the button down 1/2 way? If not the mode dial may be faulty (you are not in picture taking mode) or the shutter button may be faulty (no focus attempt) Try to use the timer button to get the shutter to trip.

Olympus Evolt 510 LCD Issue.


I purchased a olympus evolt 510 - having problems taking picture in the dark. The camera will take 30 second to focus and sometimes will not take a picture at all. Also I find when I am in doors the camera will take a substantial amount of time to focus on an object this is specifically when the flash is in use. The flash seems to be adjusting flickering constantly. Seriously Annoying.

If you can be some assistance I would deeply appreciate it.

Best,

JP

Perhaps you have quick view turned off in the setup menus. There's no way the CCD is the problem as the camera takes pictures.
