Dead Philips picture frame

I am trying to resuscitate a dead picture frame for my father-in-law. It is a Philips model 7FF1, and was purchased a few years ago. It is totally dead. I have tried hooking it up to my computer and turning the on/off switch repeatedly but the screen is blank. I inserted a new photo card with some test pictures to see if it might help but still the screen stays dark. I tried resetting the frame by pushing a pin in the little reset hole, but no luck. None of the FAQs seems to address this problem so I am writing you. Let me know if you can breathe life into this machine.

    Same problem... just went blank.  Can't get a picture at all.  I know it has power cause the little green light is on there.  Has anyone found a fix?

    Same problem, I guess its either a dead backlight or the backlight power supply. went just as the warranty expired.

    Exactly the same Problem (by the way also for the father in law ;-)

    Just died (supply seems to work, however)..

    Don't think you had the same problem. To upgrade the firmware you need to be able to connect to the device, in this case however the device is not detected and you can't connect to it via the PC. It's DEAD>

    same flash screen with logo Philips on boot and then black sreen. I see a shadow of menu but lamp is not on. Upgraded with last firmware, but same problem. It's the last Philips product I'll buy.

    same problem, upgraded with last firmware, Vivid Red screen on boot with logo Philips, then black screen. I see the shadow of the menu and I can still operate in, but not results at all. It's the last Philips product I'll buy, for sure.

I just bought a digital photo frame for my husband for christmas and i get so many pictures downloaded...then it just stops and says insufficient memory card.....i thought there was something wrong with...

I'm pretty sure this means that you have filled up the internal memory on the picture frame.
I just bought my sister a photoframe for Christmas (made by Phillips) and we got the same message. Not the most precise wording on the error message, but we tried deleting a few photos and the error went away. Then I checked the internal memory of the frame, and it is only 128M, which is not alot of photos.
I think the solution will be to buy a USB memory stick to leave in the frame. For about $10 you can get a 4G USB memory stick, which is about 32 times the space of the internal memory, at least if you have a similar model as we do.

Bought a camera a few days ago a fashion fujioptics in lanzarote and it keeps turning itself on and off...can it be fixed or have i been ripped off?

If you do a google search for the word fujioptics you will find a number of items that suggest that this camera is a scam.

I have an FF-200HD in front of me that my father in law bought in Lanzarote. It claims to be a 12 Megapixel device but produces far worse quality pictures and video than his previous 5MP HP.

Lanzarote seems to be littered with shops making money out of this trade.

Action Shots

I don't know your model of camera but this seems to be, "shutter lag", a comment issue with digital cameras. Take a look at this digital camera article on the subject. Also you may find a delay when using the LCD screen for framing the shot.

FinePix 2300

I own a 2300. It is an excellent camera and has a very good macro. With a small lamp near the object it should really shine.
