How do you stop the beeping sound when you press the menu biuttons etc e.g. like to view your pictures etc on the SONY Cyber-shot DSC-W350 ? it is really annoying to hear the beeping every time you...


I have a W560, but maybe it's the same on your camera. It was driving me insane as well. On my camera, I went to the menu, under Main Settings there was something called "Beep." It gave the options of "Shutter, High, Low, and Off." If I chose Shutter, then it keeps a shutter-like noise when you take a picture but turns off the annoying beep whenever you push any other button. I assume if you choose Off it will turn off all noises.

Hope that helps!

Theres no sound on my vivitar camera how do i get sound?


Hi,

The reason you get no sound on playback of videos is that this camera has no Microphone. This is one of the most disappointing features of the camera as whilst it has video capability it has no ability to record Audio.

Vivitar have omitted this feature on several models to keep costs down and unfortunately there is nothing you can do about it in terms of adding audio.

If you have a video editing program on your computer you may be able to add a voice over or a soundtrack to the video by using this method but no original audio can be recorded.

Hope this clarifies the issue. Thanks for using FixYa.

Three beeps when i try to turn it on


i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

Hi I was just given a Vivitar Vivicam3350. It is used but I am unable to use it. It turns on but when I try to take a pic, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?


Sounds like it is working order.

A single beep should mean that a picture was taken, but the display should change from 26 to 25 indicating that one less position is available.

Apparently a double-beep would mean that sufficient light is not available to take a picture, so a picture is not taken. Could this be what is happening to you?

My comments are based on pages 14, 15, 16 of the User Manual, which I downloaded from:

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/VIVITAR/VIVICAM%203350-_E

There are some other indicators in the display area that might give you a clue to the problem.

Hope that helps. Best of luck with your camera.

Canon powershot s410 problem


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

Polaroid i834 turns off imediately after turning turning on.


I had the same problem until just a while ago, when I realized that the lens was tweaked. It was stuck. So I turned the camera on and gave the inside part a yank before it turned off again. It took me a couple of tries but eventually the lens corrected itself and now my camera works fine. If you do it a couple of times and then start to hear three rapid beeps (sounds like 'be-du-dum') before the other three beeps (beep... beep... beep) then your getting somewhere. Hope this helps.

Beep


The Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera is programmed to shut off automatically after a few minutes if it is not being used. This helps to conserve battery power. When the camera shuts itself off, it will make a continual beeping sound. To use the camera after it has shut off, simply push the shutter button or self-timer button to take a picture. If you are not going to use your camera, turn the power switch to OFF. The camera will also beep in rapid sequence after you press the self-timer button. The camera will continue to beep in faster sequence until a picture is taken (approximately 10 seconds). A final long beep signals that a picture has been taken. NOTE: It is normal for the camera to beep while downloading photos to a computer.
