Question about Oregon Scientific DS6618 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Camera won't take pictures, I just recently installed it and after i finished charging it, i turned it on and tried to take some pictures but nothing happened. After a few secs the Lcd wasn't displaying anyhting anymore. When recently turned on, the LCD reads 88 last and the image size icon along with the battery icon blink. The battery shows fully charged. After i turn it on i don't know if I have to wait a few minutes or what? But it won't snap the pictures.

Please try removing the battery and after a few moments replace the battery. This should "reset the camera. It has the same effect as a cold boot on a computer.
Never try o switch on a camera, when an USB cable is connected. Only certain camera's, and only when special software is installed on the commuter, can work with the USB cable.
Most cameras, play "dumb" and only accept 5 volt, to charge the battery, or will transport pictures to the computer when connected and the correct software is installed.
I hope the camera will work again.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.

Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

I took a picture with my Camera shut it off went to go use it again and it won't turn on. I've charged the battery and it still won't work. Any ideas what's going on. Thanks Jamie

Its not a problem with the battery, the G7 and the G9 have a problem where a loose screw inside the camera shorts it out and causes it to not power. The repair service is about $85 total for a new part, installation and return shipping of the camera!

Hello. My daughter has had her samsung S73 for 3

The eye flashing is normal when the flash is trying to charge up , if the batteries are healthy the camera won`t take a picture until the flash is charged fully.Try turning the flash off and see if the camera fires, get some higher rated rechargeable batteries (2000mah) or above this may resolve your problem.

You don't need to install the camera.

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.
