    Mine does the same - it stays on for about 3 pics then turns off.

    I loaded a TON of pictures on the digital frame and took it into work and it was working great. I then turned on the light sensor option and now the frame shuts off automatically after a few seconds. It's too short a time to even get back to the menu system and change the setting. Very frustrating!

I had the same problem with an SPX08E. It turned out that enabling the auto light sensor was the cause!

The way I fixed it was to remove all memory cards and attach the frame via USB to a PC. Then use windows explorer to delete all folders and files on the frame other than the smartpix installer MSI. Then remove the USB and power cycle the frame. It will come up at the main menu and you then have about 15 secs to navigate to the settings page, scroll down to the reset settings tab and reset all settings to defaults. You can then transfer any pictures you want back to internal memory.

Do not turn on the light sensor or you will have to do it all over again!

Delete pictures from smartparts ps-74


Do not connect to the computer. Turn the frame on. Use the remote and I can't remember how I did it, maybe SETUP, but it gave me a drop down to delete all photos and I hit enter and it did it. Hope this helps a bit.

Threw away instructions/manual for smartparts spx8 digital picture frame so I am looking for one online.


First, check the manufacturer's website for the manual. You can generally enter the model number and do a search on their website.

Second, there are tons of manual websites out there. Try: http://the-manuals.com/, http://www.devicemanuals.com/, or http://www.retrevo.com/samples/index.html but there are others if you do a Google search for "manuals" or "owners manuals."

Can not find the setup file for the smartparts 7 inch digital pic


The setup file is on the frame. Connect the frame to your computer w/ the USB cable. Go to MY COMPUTER. Look for your frame as a removable device and open it up. There is a blue icon called "setup." If you click on it, it will start to download to your computer. If you can't find it, you can download from Smartparts website at this link:

Make sure the music that you are trying to download is the correct format. Some frames take MP3, others take WMA.
