Open Question

I have a Philips 9FF2 series photo frame which has just stopped working. I took an sd card out the screen went black and it will not work even when using the reset button. I have unplugged it, tried the reset button but nothing happens just a black screen. The blue light on the on button is working. Thanks Lynne

    I have exactly the same issue - the blue light comes on if I plug into the mains, but I just get a blank screen. The frame has been working fine for about a year..

    I have a Philips and it has just stopped working exactly the same symptoms as the other 2 people. Blue power light glows. Screen black and dead and nothing including pressing reset brings it to life - I was removing a memory stick when it went although the controls had started playing up just before it died.

When you save in Photoshop make sure you select "Baseline ("Standard") on the JPEG options when you save. That should fix the problem for you. It did the trick for My Kodak SV710 digital frame which wasn't displaying images I had edited in photoshop.

pny does not supply card readers w/memory cards-sandisk on certain cards includes reader because file format is different on sdhc cards -try downloading direct from camera w/usb or get a card reader that absolutley supports sdhc type cards-not all readers do!

Daft question, but are the batteries fully charged?

Lens cap off?

When you hit the menu/ok centre button, do you get the menu screen up?

It seems that it's not about the size of file or resolution of the photo!

I was given one of these yesterday. I copied my photos on to a 64mb SD card of unknown make. They display fine on my PC but on my Photo Frame I get the "no playable file" message. I tried changing file size etc but no good.

As a last resort I copied my same photos on to a 2GB SanDisk SD card and tried that. It works fine. So my guess is that these photo frames are picky on what SD card they'll accept.

A pity the manual doesn't tell you so!

Try resetting your camera. Go into the menu and scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions.

If the menus come on but there is no video or picture from the lens, that is usually the CCD which is a sensor in the camera that picks up the image. If you need to have it fixed, it's only $79 total for the parts, labor, the servicing for the camera included and even the shipping back. Go to: www.CamerasAndParts.com They just service these Canon Powershots exclusively and they are excellent for service on these. Your exact issue is on their site, it's $79 for everything and they do superb work on these models. I hope that helps, good luck with the problem.

Camera will not allow me to "copy" photos to transfer from internal memory to SD card?


You may be able to connect the camera to a computer and access the picture files that way. Also make sure the SD card isn't close to full.

I insert a 16 gb SD memory card in my NuVue 700 plus photo frame and it is not recognizing it I took the picture with cannon slr camera. What could be the problem?


The NuVue 700 works with SD cards. Your 16GB card is actually an SDHC card and won't work in devices not specifically designed to work with SDHC cards. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

What is the maximum size of a SD memory card that the Philips digital photo display model 9ff2 can support?


The maximum size of an SD card is 2GB, and the 9FF2 will support SD cards of that size. The 9FF2 will not support SDHC cards, which start at 4GB and go up.

Photos taken now not visible on memory card. I'm currently on vacation and have been taking photos on my DMC-TZ5. Camera has been working fine, until yesterday. I took a number of photos of a...


The memory card has most likely corrupted or the camera itself is faulty. Depending upon where you were holidaying this could be an intermittent fault due to temperature or humidity. It can also be caused if you have not followed the correct procedure for safely removing your SD card from your laptop (in Windows, click on "safely eject hardware" or from the "My Computer" window right click the SD card icon and select "Eject").

Try cleaning the card contacts using a cotton bud moistened with alcohol in case sweat, oil or grease has got onto them. If that fails then see if you can borrow another SD card, but this is risky as you may end up damaging the card so you may be better to buy the cheapest one you can solely for testing purposes (it's also worth asking for one on your local FreeCycle /Freegle groups as many folks now have low capacity SD cards with zero resale value which they have upgraded from and no longer use) . If the camera works perfectly then you know that it's most likely that the card was at fault and if not you definitely have to choose whether to get your camera sent for diagnosis and possible repair by Panasonic or whether to buy another one. Your camera is recent enough that it might still be under the manufacturer's warranty.

Regarding your existing SD card, it seems not to have recorded the images correctly or may not have recorded them at all. If the former applies, they *might* be recoverable but it needs specialist data recovery software which is not cheap (search "SD recovery"). Insert the SD card into your laptop and select the three black frames and click on "properties" to see how much memory they occupy. This will give you an idea as to whether there are approximately 90 images (3 x 30) there or not, but even if not the images could still be elsewhere on the card. You really won't know unless you invest in the required software to find out or by taking the card to a data recovery specialist (also not cheap). If you hope to recover any lost images then you must not use the card again as the data will gradually become overwritten.

The final option is to abandon all hope of the lost images, transfer the ones which you do have to your laptop (and back them up further to recordable DVD or a USB stick) and to then reformat the memory card in your camera. This option is only to be taken if obtaining a replacement SD card is impractical and if you wish to gamble that the fault was an unusual one-off. Only you can decide whether the risks of losing further unrepeatable photos are an acceptable alternative to the only certain (and expensive) fix of buying a new camera and/or memory card, although you could recoup some of the expense by reselling your current camera: it's up to buyers to ask questions ("caveat emptor") so don't mention the recent issues. Morally and legally this is fine as you don't actually know that the camera is faulty.

Sorry there's no definite answer here, but I hope that my reply will help you to isolate the cause or assists you in choosing your next course of action. If the fault is intermittent then they're impossible even for professionals to repair if they cannot reproduce the fault when testing the camera.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate my answer.

Wont go to picture taking screen or playback menu


A lot of cameras seem to be having this issue (including myself). Eventually it got to a point where the camera doesn't even turn on properly anymore. Better take it back for repair, STAT before it ends up like mine :(
