Fisher Price kid tough camera which has frozen on rainbow screen!
Hi we have a kid tough camera and it worked brilliantly for a day and has now frozen on a rainbow display with three dots on it. We have taken all the batteries out and back and tried to upload the pictures onto the computer which doesent recognise the camera. My son is really sad, can anybody help ? Annabell

I noticed this issue as well. I connected the camera to my mac and moved the 100image folder out of the DCIM folder and deleted all the photos-deleting took several steps as the camera had them hidden somewhere and new ones kept appearing with the old names. Once I turned the camera on, it created a new 100IMAGE folder and works normally.
Same happened to me; turned out to be a corrupted filesystem on the camera. Solution was a bit mad - I've got linux on my PC so I used 'dd' to write zeros to the entire device ("dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb" in my case; check /proc/partitions to find what the camera has come up as). Next time the camera was turned on it sorted itself out. I used photorec first in 'brute force' mode to get the pictures off it/
We had the exact same problem. We transferred the photos off of the camera and then it went away. So possibly it is a memory full error or a card read error. I am not sure but the transfer solved the issue.
This is a solution for getting a working camera, not really to get your camera working. I phoned Fisher Price and was told to format the camera. Turn camera off, plug into USB, right click on the camera drive in my computer and choose format. When this didn't work for me, they sent me a mailing label to send the camera back so they could send me a new one. The formatting is worth a try, and at least you get a new camera when it doesn't work.
