Bad jpg message

I bought my wife a new Kodak frame and uploaded a bunch of our old jpgs. It seems like some work and some, I get a black screen and a bad jpg message. They were all scanned with the same scanner and all formatted as jpgs, some work, some don't. Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    My problem is that the images are all fuzzy around the edges & most do not fit the frame properly, they are all jpeg. The pictures are on a scandisk card, on the computer they look fine but in the frame they look terrible. Any ideas?????



    thanking you

It can be a variety of problems, unfortunately. The images may just be truncated from the get go. Make sure all the extensions are lowercase .jpg. If they are not, OPEN them in a program, save as .jpg, close and reload them.

Make sure they are .jpg and not .jpeg

Do not try to just change the extension, this corrupts the image.

Also, check the size and make sure they are not too large.
For the digital picture frames, a 5x7 at 72 dpi is plenty big. Just make sure not to override the originals with the compressed images.

Then, check the name of the pictures. Remove any spaces, dashes or any other symbols. Strictly use letters.

When all else fails, delete all the images from the frame and reload them again.

How are you loading the images on the frame?
From a card, or directly from the computer?
If from a card, make sure to eject it from the computer first, don't just pull it from the reader. This can really messes it up and the images. Same goes with the frame itself.

Hope this helped.

Sounds like the memory installed in the frame is full. Try a different memory card or USB stick to see if the various ports are working. Be sure and try a full power off, batteries removed, reset. On the menu, is there a "format" function? if you reformat the memory, you will lose all of the pictures, make sure you have other copies, but that should return it to factory condition.

SV811 doesn't have a large enough internal memory thats why the picture capacity depends on the inserted SD card or if you transferre pics directly from the computer to display simultanously.

The frame should display as many as on the SD card.

Pictures don't fill screen on Kodak M820 Digital picture frame


Because a digital photo frame's display ratio doesn't always match the original picture ratio, some pictures cannot be displayed in a satisfactory manner. For example they may be rendered too small, with black borders, or they may be automatically zoomed-in and randomly cropped.

With a computer, this issue can be resolved by using generic photo editing software like Adobe Photoshop, or specialized software like DPF Manager, Digital Frame Master or FrameSize, to properly crop the pictures before transferring them to the digital frame. Without a computer, there is no other option but manually deleting incompatible pictures by using frame's built-in functions.

Also, check the settings and try the "Fit to Screen" but, with some models the width of each landscape image is stretched to achieve an aspect ratio of 16:9, which results in noticeable distortion.

I put pictures on a san disk sdhc memory card unformatted & formatted the card is 4gb won't play on my kodak sp-dpf56e picture frame why?


I couldn't find very specific information about your picture frame. I did find out it is from a company called Smart Parts and it is not a Kodak frame.

If I had to guess, I would say that the frame is not SDHC compatible. What this means is that it only will work with cards up to 2gb (SD).

I saw a review site (http://www.reviewcentre.com/reviews115912.html) that had a lot of reviews about how the frame does not like to read jpgs from the SD cards so this could be the issue if the one above is not.

My recommendation would be to try to use a 2gb card. If that does not work, try loading the pictures onto the frame directly from the computer.

Digital Frame Kodak EX1011 turn off after few seconde


This seems to be a known problem with Kodak digital frames. I have one and had this problem, hence me searching the net and finding this site.

Anyway, I think I solved my problem when I changed the picture transitions from random to just left swipe. It hasn't turned off since unless it's on the off schedule. I noticed it not showing anything but then I heard audio on one of the videos I had in the USB drive. This meant that it's still on but it's just not showing anything. Changing the transition to just left swipe kept it on. My guess is that some fade to/from black is messed up and kept the screen black. I've had this frame for years so maybe it's just due to age.

I can't load photos onto my digital photo frame


The  A701 is  a bit cranky.  I've found that it prefers  USB  flash sticks of upto  2GB. It likes the flash stick formatting  before use.  And it prefers  jpg files  added  to the root directory of the flash stick -  so  no images in folders. Finally but probably least important, it's not much point uploading  2MB  jpgs as  the screen  is pretty much  72DPI  smaller size JPGS  lead to a faster loading. ( try  around 900x 600 dpi )
