Question about Casio QV-R40 Digital Camera

Open Question

Taking washed-out pictures, did I hit the wrong button?

I was at a wedding (or course), and all of a sudden my camera started taking pics that looked really white (some almost looked like negatives). I tried adjusting the white balance and the flash intensity, but it only helps a little bit. I've had this camera for a long time, so I just want to know if this might be an easy fix. Thanks!

Do the pictures have lines across them as well as being blurry? If you see the lines then your shutter is stuck open and it will require repair. The shutter has to close for the image sensor to properly record the image. If they have no abnormal lines on them, are they "out of focus" blurry or is it more of a streaked motion blur kind of thing? If you do need to get the camera repaired you should check with your manufacturer for any recalls or technical bulletins, and see if they will service your camera under warranty. If not there are a number of repair facilitys available on the internet who generally have better rates than out-of-warranty service at the factory. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

It appears this problem is due a failing CCD device in many brand cameras. All the manufactures use the same source(s). I have not persued Casio as yet, but other companies are offering a recall to replace the CCD for free. I plan to use this approach with Casio. Search the web for "failing CCD in digital camera", it describes exactly what we are observing.

If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Pictures that I am taking with my Canon Rebel EOS suddenly were black on 3/4 of the picture. I checked pictures taken in the camera just before this happened and they are OK, so I don't think it


I think there is a problem with the mirror in the camera that lifts out of the way when you hit the shutter. It may be stuck or not fully retracting. Take it into a camera shop and have them check it.

You either have a overheating or a recycle(recharging) problem with the flash. If it is under warranty send it back to Canon, if not I would suggest on investing in an external flash which is MUCH better for wedding photography.

do not format -- you will lose the pictures

instead go to another computer that supports SD memory and CDRW. insert into that computer and then take all the PICS, save into that computer. now take a blank CD and take the saved PICs and burn into CD.
Also, to ensure you dont lose these pictures (PICs) you may want to buy a 4G or 8G USB thumb drive (about $10-$15 or less) -- drag and drop all the PICs (saved on that computer) into the USB thumb drive. Now you have on CD and USB drive.

hope this helps

Hi. Turn on the camera and go into the menu and find the reset function. Reset it. That may solve your problem. If it does not, you could go for a repair or a replacement. Some shops will give you a free estimate. Joe

When i turn the camera on the flash pops up and it takes a picture and keeps taking pics until i power it down. it does this intermittently depending on the settitn i turn it to.


you may need your camera cleaned. If you have taken more than about 5000 pictures with it or if you have been eating at some point and taken pics without washing your hands it could be that your shutter button is getting stuck. Some settings are set for continuous shooting and as long as you have you finger on the shutter button the camera will continue to take pictures

Bad film or Camera.


Return the camera to the company and see if you can get a return or at least an even exchange. Get another roll of film and shoot casual stuff. Never test a camera, film or digital for the first time at any mission critical event like an anniversary or wedding. It can lead to potential disaster. Shoot the roll with the new camera if you got it exchanged and then have it developed at Walmart or wherever is cheapest. If it works, keep it. If not, don't. BTW, if you are ever going to have to shoot a wedding or anything ever again with a film point and shoot and don't want hassles, just get disposable cameras. They are designed to work out of the box with no problems. They are of higher quality then most people think for image qulity.

Polaroid used to make good instant cameras, but their 35mm film and digital stuff I wouldn't trust as much. It's not the real Polaroid which can makes only instant film gear. . It's another company using the Polaroid brand name to try and make otherwise generic stuff look better then it is. Their digital cameras have a poor reputation. I don't think their non instant film cameras are much better. Good luck.

Do you still have the pics on the memory card? If you do take the mem card out and the "format" the internal memory of your camera and then reset it. See if that helps if not you are going to have to Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. Take mem card out. Turn on camera press menu go to setup tab go up until you see format press right arrow and highlight format press set...it will say "Busy, please wait" Once you are back to where you can take pics press menu go to setup tab go up to reset press right arrow & highlight reset press set. See if that works for you.
