HMX-W300 frozen My camera is completely frozen. I can't press any buttons, it will not turn off, and I have tried plugging into the computer (because I didn't know what else to do) and that did nothing. It is brand new, has not been dropped or anything. Please let me know what I can do. Thank you!

There is a reset button under the mini sd card slot. That should take care of it.

My samsungw300 got water inside. Can I do anything to make it work again?

Don't power it on (assuming you think it still may work).

Put it on a shelf, open, then point a hairdryer at it, at a temperature you still can keep your hands in. Leave it in the warm air for half an hour. That should get the moisture out of the camera.
Since it is made to be waterproof, chances are that Samsung used better insulation than with most consumer electronics.

Good luck!

How can fix this problem

Does not look good. The fact the charger light won't change colour, could mean the battery can't get enough charge. The voltage stays too low. Check if the battery is put in correct in the camera.Check if the battery contacts are clean and shiny. also check the contacts in the camera. If you need to clean the contacts, don't use anything sharp. just a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Sharp tools will damage the camera and or the battery. If you have an external (universal) charger, try to charge the battery outside the camera.
I did write lots of things about batteries, because they are the most common reason for camera malfunction.

My hmx-w300 wont turn on

Was the camera in a watertight housing ? If not, you have probably ruined it by getting it wet.

Sony cybershot dsc-w300 free software

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

My flipshare video has frozen-will not even turn off

Try holding the power button in for 10 seconds,this will reset the Flip usually.
If that doesn't work there is a pinhole in the bottom of the camera where the
tripod screws into,take a pushpin or something that small and push in for 5 seconds.

Then press the power button and it should reset.

It may be freezing because it needs the firmware updated,plug in your Flip camera to your computer and the Flipshare software will come up and check for new updates to the firmware.

After a deep study of the manual there are two reset buttons. One on the remote (pg 8 #4). The camera reset is next to the tape eject button. (pg6 #25). Hope this helps.
