Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Power Shot "S 40". The camera will not allow me to erase a individual pictures. When I am in the erase mode, and I push the erase button, the erase keeps jumping back and forth between the erase and cance. I have had this problem for along time, now it's finally stopped working at all.

    I have done what you suggested using the multicontroller in and out of the lock image. The multicontroller still will not erase either the single image or erase all images. When the image is locked I know that a key appears in the upper left corner. The multicontroller will NOT erase the image either with the with locked key image or without it. My guess in the problem is with the "Multiconroller"

Hi,
That picture seems protected so please un-protect that particular picture by going in protect file menu that you are trying to erase. Once its unprotected, will erase easily.
Other way is take back up of memory card files and erase / format memory card to get ride of that file and stream line memory card.

Thanks.

    Yes, if still pictures are not being erased then memory card would be bad. Please use another / extra memory card, if available, in camera to confirm the old memory card that is it bad.

I HAVE A NEW POWER SHOT SX130 IS (CANNON0 I DO NOT KNOW HOW TODELETE THE DOWNLOADED PICTURES FROM THE MEMORY CARD


You can delete photos from your SX130 IS in two ways:
To Delete Photos Individually:
  1. Press Playback Mode button (looks like a play button and is located on the top right on the LCD-side of your camera)
  2. The last image you took will appear on the LCD screen.
  3. Use the Left & Right arrow keys or turn scroll wheel to cycle through your images
  4. Once you find an image you want to delete, press the Trash button. The image will be erased.
  5. Press the Playback Mode button or the FUNC/SET buttons to exit when done
To Delete ALL Photos
  1. Press the MENU button (bottom right button on LCD-side of camera) to bring up the Menu screen
  2. On the Playback tab (Looks like a Play button icon), use the arrow buttons or turn scroll wheel to scroll down to Erase. Press the FUNC/SET button.
  3. You now have three options Select, Select Range, and All images. Select will allow you to delete individual images, Select Range will allow you to select a series of images, and All images will delete all images from memory. This last one is the option we are looking for.
  4. Use the arrow keys or scroll wheel to choose All images
  5. Use the arrow key or scroll wheel to select OK when the Erase confirmation screen pops up.
  6. Your images will be erased!

While shooting the same daylight scene the camera will alternately produce good pictures and then pictures that are very dark.


It sounds as if the iris which adjusts to allow the correct amount of light to enter the camera is sticking. Maybe due to foreign matter being wedged between the vanes of the iris. About the only way I can think of to remedy the problem without visiting the repair man is to set up in a dimly lit room with a torch pointing towards you. Turn your camera on and in the auto mode alternatively point the camera into the torches beam and then away from the torch. This may open and close the iris suficiently to dislodge any fluff or grit from between the vanes. You may have to do it a number of times. A few seconds of bright then a few seconds of dark about a dozen times may do the job. If you have a manual mode try using it by adjusting from wide open to fully closed also a dozen times.
If the camera behaves itself after trying this it should be cured. An old trick but it does work occasionally and well worth a try. Otherwise the iris may need replacing. Which could prove expensive.

One other thing, are you waiting for the camera to set itself up by half pressing the shoot button before each shot. You may be underexposing if you just push the button straight down to take the shot. Make sure you only push halfway to allow the auto focus and auto exposure time to set. Then push all the way for your shot.

How do i erase individual pictures from my camera?


You need to hit the 'menu' button.
Then hit the 'forward arrow' button
Then the 'backward' arrow (center big button).
(this will return you to the saved pictures)
From there you will see the 'erase' icon.
Choose frame (individual pictures) or all
frames (all pictures).
Your owners manual could help.

I have a Canon Power Shot A580 i just want to erase some photos from the camera thats it


Put the camera in picture review mode. Then use the zoom to bring up thumbnail diplays. Use the up/down, right/left buttons to navigate to the individual picture that you want to erase. Then press the "trashcan" button on the back of your camera. Select yes when it asks if you want to delete this picture.

Alternately you can delete all the pictures by again selecting picture review mode, pressing "menu", then scrolling to "erase all" pictures.

Erasing the memory card;


All pictures in the internal memory and/or on the memory card can be erased at once. This is accomplished through either formatting or the "all-frame erase" function. I copied the following instructions from the advanced manual, which can be downloaded here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/d545zadvman.pdf. Adobe reader should open that file with no problem. If it doesn't, that's another issue altogether.

1. Enter playback mode by pressing the play button.
2. Press the OK MENU button.
3. Press the right arrow button (next to the lightning bolt) to access [MODE MENU]
4. Then, press the down arrow to access the [MEMORY(CARD)] tab.
5. Select the [ALL ERASE] function.
6. Select Yes and press OK MENU.

(You'll need to use the arrow buttons to navigate the menus. Please see pg 16 of the manual for instructions on how to do so.)

Note: when the memory card is in the camera, it will erase the pictures off the card. When the card is removed, the function above will erase the internal memory.

Delete photos


looking at the back of the camera, at the bottom right coner among the switches, there is a button with a waste basket picture. While going through at play mode, you can press this button to delete single picture. Otherwise you can go to menu and format the memory card and erase all the pictures. -James

With the camera on, push the mode button 5 times. The window will show a square with a dark circle in it, and a diagonal line through. Hold the shutter button (that you take a picture with) down until the camera "beeps". This will erase all the pics in the camera. To erase the last pic taken, push the mode button 4 times. This gives you a square with a lighter circle and diagonal line - hold the shutter button until it beeps.

Canon power shot a560 erased pics


You can get the pictures back but DO NOT take any more pictures or add data of any sort to the card.

Bring it to your local computer store and they should be able to recover the information.
