Question about Samsung Digimax V700 Digital Camera

Playback mode is stalling

I have no problems in standby mode but when i try to take a photograph the camera either stalls or doesn't take it at all. When I press playback to look at my pictures the screen freezes and the number of my pictures counts up or down really fast but the picture won't move! It freezes at the last taken image and the only way I can stop it is by removing the battery.

Re: Playback mode is stalling

This is due to problem with the memory card. Back up all taken pictures. format the memory card with PC or camera itself and restart the camera. check if there is a problem. if there is a problem, ensure that if is free from dust or humidity. There may be problem with camera software. Better is to take it to a camera hardware engineer.

How do I stop my Nikon D60 from highlighting white spots?

When you are in the playback mode, press the up or down arrow on the back dial until the screen scrolls through the various overlays until you get to the screen you want...usually the screen with the frame numbers on it. If this helps, please rate accordingly, thanks.

Canot see subject trying to photograph

Hello, You should contact Canon about the situation. Let them know you are aware of the problem CCD sensor on the S1 camera. Actually S1 is repaired free of charge because of the CCD problem. You should suggest that your camera probably has the same defect as the S1. See what they say. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Nikon d80 LCD screen

Hello cherdh,

To disable those blinking spots, just press the up or down cursor keys at the back of the camera while in playback mode. You will get three different views. One shows the EXIF data (Image data) as an over lay on your photograph. Press the button again to go to histogram mode, with graphs. Press it again to go to a mode where some image data is on the bottom of the display with no blinkies on the image.

Those blinking black spots are called highlights in a photograph. They indicate the areas where your photograph is over-exposed, i.e. where there is too much light and the colours are washed out. It can be a good tool to get a good exposure. Keep clicking with different settings till you get an exposure without those blinking spots.

I hope this helps.

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor

Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
