If you can take things apart without damaging things...then it may be possible to fix. I have had mine apart several times, and the slider on the outside, switches a mini micro slider inside. It has to be lined up with the tabs...dropping it may have caused it to jump the slots.

My camara casio digital exilim ex-s8 the card is locked...how do i doing unlock? thanks


Take a look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

Will not recognise sd card


Is the SD slide protection switch unlocked? You will also need to format the memory card before it will work in your digital camara. Make sure the memory is compatible with your camara (too much memory and it won't work)

My Nikon oolpix 5600 will not allow me to format my cards or take pictures. It displays "memory card is write protected". I know my daughter dropped it but everything else is working properly.

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.


I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.

Digital camara and memory card


Basically picture files in memory card have corrupt data that's why computer doesn't recognize it.
HP recommends following action...
Close the HP Image Zone or HP Photosmart Software, disconnect the camera from the computer, and reset the camera. (can see this at HP Support)
2nd option is to find some memory card data recovery software on internet and use it to correct data files in memory card.
Thank you.

I have a technika View box sp-108 which alows you to view your ipod videos etc on the 7" screen. it also doubles up as digital picture frame allowing you to load mp3 video and jpeg photos from flash...


Make sure you don't have to many folders or sub folders, best to keep it simple.

Wipe the card and format it as "FAT" not "FAT32" just right click your usb or SD card in vista or XP and select format.

Drop your MP3 album onto the card, If you use your USB Stick and SD card at the same time then it will default to SD and not play from both.

I found it would not read from one card unless I had a playlist, so I used a free program called Playlist creator 3 - get it here (only relates to MP3's)

I dropped and xvid movie onto the SD card and it played fine, just make sure you are in the correct menu 1st! and the movie isn't in some very old format as it may not play all codecs (encoding used to make movie)

Hope this helps

A345 stuck in movie mode


you need to open the camera caseing a small amount. As you put the case back make sure the switch is in the movie position so it will engage the switch inside on the circuit board. Looks like the switch has been knocked off the control inside.If you have been moveing the switch back and forward you may have broken it.

Black screen when camara is in photo mode


anyone else had this? or know what to do. whatever best you can do is to take the camera to a good repairer as you can't fix the problem by yourself. there may be two possible reasons for the problem. 1) bad image sensor i.e. damaged CCD or 2)shutter blade are not working. the shutter blades may be jammed due to friction are no signal.
