Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Hi I have a Creative Live Optia webcam that i have had for just over 4 months now (from new). It was working fine until about 2 weeks ago then it stopped displaying any picture at all. I have tried it on my other pc and a freshly formatted laptop with no luck. Windows recognises it with or with out drivers the same goes with Windows Live Messenger (Skype will with drivers) but with no video out put. The cam its self shows the blue light when its ment to be in use it hasn't been dropped,punched,kicked,submerged or blown away with an A.K.47 (yet). Its always had plenty of slack on the cable and the cable has always been no where near any thing that could damage it so if you can help please.

I've had my camera for about 3 years now and have never had any problems until a couple of weeks ago. When I turned the camera on, it forced me to reset date/time and would occasionally show aperture 00...


Try getting new trusted brand batteries like duracell, And also if it forces you to change the D/T just change it. Also try getting a new memory card. (trusted brand). If none of this works then there might be a prob. Maybe someone dropped it. Try asking the company 2.

Hope this helps

Power button problem


As you said, its 4 months old and assumed under warranty cover. Contact Sony Service Center for repair because if you try yourself, will void warranty.

My camera wont turn on


1.See what the camera manual suggests.
2. Charge the batteries fully before using them. New ones are often not charged up. They could have been in a warehouse for months.
3. The electrical contacts on your camera, the ones that interface with the batteries, may be a little corroded. If you can access them easily, try cleaning them with the eraser on the end of a pencil. Same with the batteries themselves.
4. If exposed to prolonged high humidity, electrical problems may include not only the power supply, but other electrical switches, such as the reset button., which you cannot address on your own.
5. call the manufacturer

New kodak digital camera problems


Hey hashbrownz,
What it sounds like to me is the drivers required for the camera to communicate with your computer have either been deleted or corrupted. I would try reinstalling the software that came with the camera, and I have provided a link below from the manufacturer on how to troubleshoot this problem. I hope this helps!

Mind did the same thing. Try taking out the memory card. If it works after that, you'll have to buy a new memory card.

Camera won't turn ON


First off, everything was not fine until this morning. You had this occur a month ago. Frankly, I would have done exactly as you did a month ago and nothing more. I have seen too many electrical problems permanently solved by turning a device off and then on, or by rebooting. Here is what I would generally recommend: 1. See what the camera manual suggests. 2. Charge the batteries fully before using them. New ones are often not charged up. They could have been in a warehouse for months. 3. The electrical contacts on your camera, the ones that interface with the batteries, may be a little corroded. If you can access them easily, try cleaning them with the eraser on the end of a pencil. Same with the batteries themselves. 4. If exposed to prolonged high humidity, electrical problems may include not only the power supply, but other electrical switches, such as the reset button., which you cannot address on your own. 5. Call Sony.
