    I've had the same problem with my Sony DSC-W55. Whenever I take pictures some of them just shrink and when I download them on the computer they look distorted. It seems the problem happens whem I use the memory stick. Have you found any solution?

Got the same problem, can you just format the memory card? plz help, I don't know what to do

Posted on Dec 13, 2007



the memory card i had was dodgy, i bort it from amazon, i think it may have been fake, I went to dixons, bort another memory card, and works perfectly now, (i didnt realise this until after my camer had been sent back to where i had bort it from, and had it returned,) only to realise the camera was in deed fine, and it was the memory card that was wrong. the problem is completely resolved now.

this is all you need to do if you have the similar problem....I have spoken to sony, and they have agreed to replace the memory card for me.

I've had the same problem and spent hours on solving out. I came out with very surprisingly simple explanation.
The pics you want to view / replay (the ones on the memory card only) were taken with a different camera. The other camera has more MegaPixels resolution.
In my case I was trying to replay pics taken on 7MB Sony camera, although my camera has only 5MB.
I hope this helps.
Let me know if this helped and how did you solve it.
Cheers, Andrej ( )

CAnnon Powershot A630 LCD screen will not light up when trying to take a pic. I can, however view old pics that I've already taken.

First press the DISP or DISPLAY button to see if that corrects the problem. If not, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Blackberry will not send pics as mms

The BlackBerry device user is unable to send photos taken with the BlackBerry device camera in Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) messages, because the photos taken by the BlackBerry device camera may be too large to send in MMS messages.
Reduce the size or quality of the photo and resend.
To access the size and quality options for the BlackBerry device camera, complete the following steps:
  1. Open the Camera application.
  2. Click the menu button.
  3. Select Options.
  4. Change the Picture Size and Picture Quality settings as required.
  5. Click the menu button and select Save.
And try to send the photo in an email message instead of in an MMS message.

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...

The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function
