Remove the SD card, use a card reader to view files on your PC. Save any pictures that you want to keep - and then delete the file and also the DCIM parent folder. Once you have done this, try it back in the camera. Worked fine for us after this.

Canon 60D playback images turning up black

Did you switch to Tv (shutter mode) and took pictures for several seconds? like in the dark? Because saving the picture can take as long as the shutter time was.
Before panic. (Actually you never should panic) check your camera in automatic mode. And make sure you did not select any power save action, that puts your display on dark while shooting.
But always be sure your battery is charged and check its capacity. In the menu yo can check under the wrench symbol, when you select Battery info. Page 268 of the manual.
Working with a bad battery can damage the camera in the end.

Canon G10 wont turn on

Try removing the card first and then trying to power up the camera. Cameras often fail to turn on/off when a card goes faulty. Next I would try pushing the playback button, it also acts as a power button but starts the camera in playback mode. If this works it could indicate a problem with the power switch circuit itself. If there is still no sign of life I would suspect a fuse to have blown. They are internally located and very small, you would need to have a service centre try replace it for you. Good Luck!

Low battery maybe? Try holding camera firmly in one hand, with camera on and in record mode, and strike in on its edge firmly on the heal of your other hand. This technique is often sucessful with temporary camer 'quirks' like freezing, lens not fully retracting, etc.

File error issue

If the images are on the card and transfer OK to computer then we will have to look back to the camera.
You are sure that playback mode is selected correctly - are you?
Check out the hand book for this.
If you are sure - then it would seem to be a fault and the camera should be returned to the seller or the Sony support site contacted with a view to obtaining a replacement

DSC-W35 file error

It sounds like the memory stick would be full why not format it and limit your number of pictures to its capacity.  Download pictures to your PC to have more space.

Camera freezes in any picture taking mode

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. you need professional service to fix it.
