Question about Toshiba PDR-M11 Digital Camera

Open Question

Photography digital camera malfunctioning

I am facing three problems with my PDR-M11. A. All my pictures come out "foggy" I have cleaned the lens with cotton buds, but no improvement. B. It is almost imposible to transfer my photos to my computer; when I try to open the camera or the Camio viewer in Image Expert it says it does not find the camera. I have checked all the possibilities ( cable, USB ports,etc) and my procedures are right. Have dis-installed the driver and Image Expert and re-installed both many times without success.Maybe one in 100 attempts works. At least I was able to transfer my photos with a card reader, but Now... C. A new one has arised. When turned ON, my PDR-M11 shows "processing" in the LCD monitor and nothing else. It is like frozen and the only thing I can reach is the Setup menu. It is not possible to open Photography mode or the Playback mode, not to mention the PC mode. It does no let me try anything to solve the problem What should I do?? This camera has never had a shock or hit or fallen in any way. I have keept it for my own use and is 5 years old. Thank you very much for your interest and answers. Aldovera

Hi this is common problem if your sure that these batterys are new and you have used that make and type of battery before than the problem will be on the board of the camera itself.
If these batterys are ones you have not used in your camera before then the chances are these batterys are just not powerfull enough so you can by a recharge pack for your camera ok so let me know if its new batterys and if you have used this type before.

Also insted of using the lcd can you turn the screen of then try taking picture using normal view finder as you would on a none digital cam

It could just be that the batterys you brought are faulty and might be worth trying another set before giving up.
These camera usuall wont switch on with normal batterys so just try another set or if you have let me know.
If the battery says low bat then goes off then these batterys will not work if tryed again but if you can get camera on turn off the screen then try taking picture ok get back to me and let me know ok

Hi Judy, thanks for coming to FixYa.
Sorry no one has gotten to you sooner. Your manual mentions this and this is what it says to do:

Turn the camera on and move the lens cover switch to the open. Then your camera should operate normally. Let me know if that helps.

How to clean fungi on lens


The success o cleaning fungus off a lens depends on how far the growth has gone.Light fungus on the outside surface off the lens can be removed by wiping a thin smear of Dove cream on the affected surface and then lightly removing using cotton buds. Follow this with a light polish using lens cleaning cloth. Never use cleaning tissue, it will scratch. A useful tip is to wash the lens cloth in hot water and dish washing liquid and rinse and ry before use. Have a spare clean cloth ready.
If the fungus is to heavy to remove you will still get some improvement using this cleaning method. If the fungus is on the inside it is up to you to decide whether to dismntle the lens.

My disk drive on my laptop has stopped working. how do i check if my frivers are working correctly


If you mean the cd drive then try cleaning the lens on the laser.Just open the tray and look for the little round glass lens. Take a cotton bud and just wipe it gently across the lens, don't press too hard as the lens is supported on a very sensitive suspension so it can move up and down to compensate for uneven cd's. You can use an alcohol cleaner on the cotton bud but you only need a tiny amount. I have cleaned them just by breathing on the lens to moisten it, then wipe with cotton bud.

Hello, you haven't been handling your device with care. Please, avoid touching the readable part of your cds with your hand. Get you lens cleaned. For me, I use water to clean any of my lenses. My trick: Use a cotton bud (for the ear), dip the cotton bud partially into clean water, Do as if you are flapping the cotton bud, in order to remove the water droplets. Use the cotton bud to clean your lens very gently. Next use the other dry end of the cotton bud (which should be very neat) to finally clean the lens. Leave you device for 5 minutes, then try your neat cds. Sure, this helps, and dont forget to rate me. Thanks a lot

If the machine cant read the table of contents of a disc this would suggest either the lens of the optical pick up is dirty or the optical pick up has failed completely or something directly relating to the optical pick up i.e the spindle or stepper motor, if you can easily access the optical lens you maybe able to clean it using a cotton bud and re-test, just try this with a dry cotton bud to begin with if this gives an improvement you may wish to use a cotton bud with a alcohol cleaner
make light circular movements over the lens. If this makes no difference the machine requires repairing, consult a local service engineer.
good luck

My player, plays some DVDs but not others, but will play them occasionally. Have used a cleaning disc, but no improvement. Have cleaned lens of Laser with Arklone and cotton bud - no different.


If it has crossed more than 500 hours it could be the laser optic unit ( known as lens ).
The replacement would cost you 1/3 the cost of a new player.

probably unaligned position or irritated lens....... try to disassemble the CD housing, realigned the lens holder by pushing it to the rear end of the Disk Drive, then clean the lens with clean cotton buds with alcohol, let it dry by cleaning it with the dry clean cotton buds.... reasseble the housing... reconnect to PC.... re-detect the CD-ROM at the BIOS Set-up and....... Wella....... Goodluck!!

In CD mode, machine will not spin disc. Therefore no sounds can be reproduced. Has anyone else experienced this? GB

Everything is upside down. The larger eye piece looks foggy.


The image is often 'upside down' in telescopes. You can correct this with an auxiliary lens to make the image the right way up. It is very awkward traversing the sky backwards and upside down. If the larger eyepiece looks foggy then first clean the outside of each lens with a lens cloth or isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud or clean and lint free cloth. If this does not solve the problem this means that some moisture has got into the lens housing and the only way to get rid of it is to either remove a lens or to drill a small hole in the side of the housing and then gently heating the lens near a radiator until the moisture has disappeared and then seal up the hole with a blob of epoxy resin or sealing mastic or gaffa tape.

CD will not rotate.


The spindle motor may have failed. Can you try 'starting it off' by hand after inserting a CD?
