    None of the arrow buttons work, the menu button, trash, disp and others do not work. What does work is the rotating wheel, the take picture button, and the on/off button. When trying to take picture, it won't show preview on screen. When taking video it shows preview but lines go across screen. Got from cousins so it's in Spanish and no buttons work. It takes pictures and video dunno if zoom works i can only access files from computer and I updated drivers. Help?

    My camera used to take really clear, crisp pictures. But now the pictures come out all fuzzy, or you can't even tell what the picture is. And the flash turns everyone extremely white. Like you can't see their noses, mouths, and sometimes eyes. Anyway to restore my Polaroid i834 to its factory settings?

SOURCE: looking to reset to original factory settings

when a problem arises on your Canon 350d, Canon tech support will advise you to first reset your camera...set the mode to P and then go to menu, setup tools 2, clear settings..
the second option is to update your firmware by visiting the canon website, you can access this by going to google and searching for 350d firmware...
the third option will be to send your camera for service in Borehamwood UK...
hope this helps.

I've ever had this problem too so I called the Nokia centre and they told me to go to the Menu-Setting-Restore Factory Setting. Done it's fixed by itself. Anyway sometimes you couldn't activated the camera when the battery is running low.

I have sony DSC-W190,i want correct menu setting ,bcos if i take a picture its not clear,i think may be menu setting changed,idnt any idea about menu setting pls help.....


If the Menu settings in the camera is changed, then I suggest you to reset the Camera back to factory default. Initializing the Camera back to factory default will set all the settings in the Camera back to factory default.
To initialize the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
You can also try a manual reset;

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

The blurry image capturing can also adjusted by changing the ISO Settings or the Scene Selection modes.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Back camera not open earror

Its the common problem for N70, always the back camera. anyway may advice is... Select the factory settings from your phone settings menu. In that way some minor problem can help you to fix your phone. But if the problem still persist, you have no other choice, need to reformat your phone. thanks

My sony cyber shot dsc t70 just hasn't been taking great pictures. They're ALL ALWAYS fuzzy. I think it's because I've been fiddling with the settings. Can you tell me how to restore the settings or give...

I'm having the same problem! Its been recommended on a number of websites to restore the factory settings and that might do the trick. You need to go to home, settings, main settings and select initialize to restore what the camera came with - that what I'm going to try anyway! Good luck!

Settings change everytime i power on/off

The user manual can be down loaded for free from here:-

Page 16 refers to picture resolution, apparently once you've chosen the resolution you require you have to

"3. Press the Up/Down button to select the desired image size.
4. Press the Menu button to confirm, save and exit to standby mode".

Megapixels on camera needs to be reset?

You can check the user manual to change again the resolution settings, or just reset the camera to the factory settings through the menu settings (last and bottom setting option).

Default settings

Depending on the model, there will be a Menu - browse the settings and you'll find a RESET SETTINGS or DEFAULT TO FACTORY, usually in the SETUP section.
