Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Photos rotate incorrectly on playback

Having an issue with photos being viewed on playback screen. No matter the orientation of the camera (landscape or portrait) the playback screen rotates the photos so they are all portrait. This is very inconvenient since many photos are sideways and you can't tell if you have a good shot or not. I have tried re-setting the camera defaults, turnign the Auto Rotate setting off and on, as well as a number of other things, but I am still having this problem. Anyone out there had the same or similar issues. I use this camera in a high school journalism class and my students and I very frustrated by this problem. Please offer suggestions.....

    I realize this is a function of auto-rotate. I can turn it off and the photos all stay landscape. However, when I turn it back on (because I want my portrait photos to be viewed as portrait) then all of the photos are automatically rotated to portrait view. This has not always been the case. Before, the photos could be viewed the way they were shot--landscape was landscape, and portraits rotated so they could be viewed as portraits. I want this back! I hate that we have to turn the camera sideways to see if we got a good shot or not. I have cleared all custom functions also, so that should not be the problem. Help!

This is a function of auto-rotate. With auto-rotate set to OFF this should not happen.
If it still happens with auto rotate set to off, then perhaps one of the custom functions has been set incorrectly.

I can't figure out how to re-orient some of my pictures to be right side up on my VistaQuest 8" Digital Photo Frame VQ0801W. I need to rotate some so they aren't on the side.


We use Picasa program to manage our pictures and videos. It's a free program and it works great. It should also help to fix the problem you have. Let me know if it helps!

UNABLE TO PRINT LANDSCAPE


To print photos in landscape orientation use Irfanview. Install this software and use it to view photos. Very easy settings are available in print options from its options menu.
To print documents in landscape, choose landscape orientation from page layout.
For all other applications, set the orientation from the printer's properties inside the control panel in Windows.
Note: You cannot adjust it to print in landscape for direct copying from the printer's panel.

I am unable to see all the photos on the camera after viewing the memory card on a laptop. They are still present on the card (85 files) but on the camera I get the message "File contains no image data"...


I can't tell you exactly why all your photos became unavailable on your camera, but I do know that many digital cameras as well as handheld media devices (zunes, sansas etc) are very fussy when it come to the images stored on them. They write index files describing what is stored on them, and yes, if your alter any files using a computer after they were imported and indexed, they will disappear from view on the device. I am surprised that all your photos no longer show up, not just the ones whose orientation was altered.

I recommend moving your photos to your laptop and using your camera to reformat your memory card. I am unaware of any way to coax them into being viewed on your camera once they have been shunned.

Displays file error message when trying to playback still images and video footage


Did you take the card and insert into computer/device to view photos?

Viewing photos can alter the format of the photos thereby preventing your camera from reading them.

I viewed some photos and rotated a few photos and my camera no longer recognizes the format.

good luck

Viewing photos on the htc touch diamond.


If you take lower resolution photos on the Diamond, especially photos for contacts, they aren't as big as the other photos, so you must zoom in for them to fill the whole screen. For that, simply do a half circle clockwise motion on the picture itself.

Also, if you took larger photos with the camera on it's side, you must turn it to it's side again so the picture goes back to landscape mode.

I don't know how to view photos on camera


Since camera model number is not mentioned in question, there are 2 ways to view pictures in Sony camera.
Either you will find Play Back symbol in mode dial on camera, rotate mode dial until playback is selected or camera has Play Back button near LCD which need to be pressed so camera will shift to playback and you can view pictures in memory.

Landscape screen


your hardware slide sensor is probably broken.  go to start>settings, tap the screen tap at the bottom, tap the screen applicaton, change orientation to "landscape".  your phone will be permanently in landscape mode, which is better anyway, since the screen rotation is annoying as hell.

LCD monitor is blank


Canon would have to fix this for you. The fault may be the screen itself, or the LCD viewfinder drive IC on the camera's circuit board. In this case they will replace the circuit board.
