Video doesn't work

When I press the button for video, it records for maybe 2 seconds, sometimes even 4 seconds, then stops. Then I can't turn it off, I have to remove the batteries to turn it off. How do I get the video function to work?

Cannot send video via text from samsung galaxy note 2 to samsung galaxy note 1


There might be some software differences between the Note 2 and Note 1.

MIGHT be, it could also be a glitch or maybe the mobile network (3G) wasn't turned on, and as far as I know, you have to press "download" on the message you get when someone tries to send you and MMS (picture/video).

If neither of the above works, it could be a glitch, or in worst case, a software difference that makes the phone unable to see/download the MMS.

My flip video camera froze.it wont turn on....


Have you tried resetting the camera? Hold down the power button and the red button simultaneously until the camera shuts off (takes about 10 seconds). Then, just press the power button again and the camera should turn back on. I had the same problem; when I pressed the red button to stop recording, the camera froze, and the red light remained on. I tried resetting it like this, and it seemed to work.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Battery Installation
An adult must install batteries. Here’s how:
1. Using a Phillips screwdriver (not included) remove the screws and Watertight Cover from the
bottom of the camera.
2. Remove the screw and Battery Compartment Cover .
3. Install two (2) AA alkaline batteries (not included) making sure the (+) and (-) ends face the
proper direction as indicated inside the battery compartment.
4. Replace the Battery Compartment Cover and tighten the screw.
5. Replace the Watertight Cover and tighten the screws firmly to ensure a good seal.
Optional SD Card
Your Camera will hold approximately 10 minutes of video or 250-1000 still photos. Since portions
of the free memory space indicated in the Menu Mode are used to store the photo program, the
available space for storing photos etc., may be reduced. These numbers may also vary depending
upon the camera mode settings and the images being captured. To enlarge the memory, an
SD card (not included) may be purchased from your local camera store. To install the card an
adult must:
1. Make certain the camera is turned OFF.
2. Using a Phillips screwdriver (not included) remove the screws and Watertight Cover from the
bottom of the Camera.
3. Slide the SD card (not included) into the slot until it clicks. (DO NOT force the SD card. If you
feel resistance, remove the card, make sure it is facing the correct direction, and try installing
again).
NOTE: SD card label must face toward the Camera Viewfinder and the edge of the card with the
copper contacts must be inserted first.
4. Replace the Watertight Cover and tighten the screws firmly to ensure a good seal to keep
water from entering the card slot.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
• If the Watertight Cover is not completely sealed, water may enter the compartment causing
irreparable damage to the camera.
• USE CAMERA IN FRESH WATER ONLY. DO NOT USE IN SALT WATER.
• Using the Camera at a depth of more than 3 feet is not recommended.
TIP: Keep an eye on your battery level by checking the Battery Gauge in the top-right corner of
your screen. If the Gauge is red, new alkaline batteries need to be installed.

camera and the SD card. To remove the card, press in on it and it will pop out.

Canon Powershot A630 video recording issue


This could be your memory card going bad. Recommend trying a "low level" format of the card to see if that jump starts it. First download all images and videos as the format will erase them from the card. Next press the menu button and select the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the format option, and press the "Func Set" button. Make sure "Low Level" format option is checked before selecting OK. After you format the card, try the video to see if the problem is fixed. If the above didn't help, recommend trying a different card.

Can't turn on my camera!


Hi..

I have a link and some information I found on the video option to your camera. This link is for the manual located on hp.com:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?product=371583&lang=en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&

The following is how to stop video:
To stop recording video, press and release the Video
button again; otherwise, the video will continue recording
until the camera runs out of memory.

NOTE
If you have set the camera to Self-Timer or Self-Timer -
2 Shots (see Using the Self-Timer Settings on page 44),
the camera will start recording 10 seconds after you press
the Video button. However, with the Self-Timer - 2 Shots
setting, the camera only records one video clip.

After recording has stopped, the first frame of the video clip
appears on the Image Display. While it is processing, you can
delete the video clip by pressing the Menu/OK button

Good luck and please let me know if there is anything else i can hep you with--feedback would be geat.. thanks, d

No Sound when Capturing


ah. This happens to me sometimes. Well, for some reason it always works when i first open USB streaming tool( this program is not for recording)use the program to edit the video, like to fix brightness etc. Then open capturing tool. This is what you use to capture the video to your computer. What i do is to press the play button in the program, not the capture button. The video on the camcorder and the video on your screen should start playing. I do this just to test the video if its gonna have sound or not. Then you rewind the video by pressing the rewind button in the program. After that press the capture button. Sometimes it records and you don't hear the sound on the computer, I'm not sure but maybe after its captured into the computer, the video will have sound. If you do record, but with no sound, record about a minute and then stop it. Go to where you saved the video and check if there is any sound. Hope this helps you. Sorry if it's kinda confusing because i don' use the program no more. I use a DVD recorder which you connect your camcorder to the DVD player and it burns the video directly to a DVD. Its much mroe easier but you can't play around with it on the computer.
