Switch off the Acer Video application in your taskbar. That solves the problem for me sometimes.

Even when you remove a driver some of the problem remains. Removing drivers is important when you do so through the control Panel ADD/Remove software.
You must then make certain that all applications that were installed were all removed as well! In addition compatibility issue. All cameras do not work on all PCs.

Hi, try going into settings > Applications > (scroll right to all) > Camera > Clear Data. This won't delete any of your photos but rather your camera settings.

My a720 is on auto but won't take a pic everytime just the bright orange light on the front and nothing happens

Soundsl ike you got a autofocus issue and this needs to be taken care of by a camera shop. The issue here is the auto focus sensor the normally causes the camera to not turn on or to turn on and the breif off again. I would have it looked at by a camera shop,

thanks and please do leave positive ratings and feedback for your free answer today.

I have sondy handycam hc-36e but while runing the picture package showing error " to run this application, you need to install macromedia flash player first"

If Macromedia Flash Player 8 is installed on a computer where no previous versions of the Macromedia Flash Player have been installed, then the Picture Package Menu option may be unable to start. To resolve this issue, download and install the Picture Package Menu update from the Picture Package Web site at:

Everytime i turn on and off my A200(sony DSLR) it shakes and makes noise,, and before it focuses on something it shakes and makes alot of noise?? wahts wrong with it?

It is not your camera, it is your lens, The af lens trying to engage and the gears are grinding. Just for verification go to your nearest camera store and try a different lens on your camera. They will not shake like yours.

Blackberry 8130 Curve Camera Troubleshooting

I had this problem and I've tried everything posted and nothing worked so I just started messing around with my phone and may have figured it out. Here's what I did.

1. Click the Menu Button
2. Scroll to Options Icon (the wrench) and click it
3. Click Advanced Options
4. Click Applications and wait for the Apps to load.
5. Scroll down and delete the apps that you dont need (see what I deleted)
6. I first deleted ICQ Messanger by scrolling over it and selecting the menu button then clicked delete, then clicked Yes and let it reboot
7. After it rebooted I clicked the Camera button on the side and it worked after I rebooted
8. Then I went back in and deleted Yahoo Messanger and let it reboot again. (This is up to you)
9. Last I deleted Windows Live Messenger and let reboot once again. (This is up to you)
I deleted these because I didnt use them anways. These were the only 3 apps that I deleted since I never used them. If you want, you could even delete Brick Breaker if you dont play it but I wouldnt delete any other Apps other than these.

K530i, unable to use camera

I had exactly the same problem with my K610i phone.There were no other applications running at the time, and I also tried using the Sony Ericcson Update Service.
I have now cured this fault by :-
a. Removing the battery
b. Removing the SIM card.
Cleaning both sets of contacts, on the phone and on both of the items that were removed, and re-installing same. This is what all that was required - no further malfunction.

Hope this may prove to be a cure.

Lens Cover Won't Open

NO Super glue this can be fixed pretty easily to get fixed. most local shops will not charge you to much to fix it maybe 15 to 20 at the most i figure. or you can remove the lens cover by putting a very small flat head screw driver on the side of the lens and with the camera off pull away from the camera and it should just pop off. Superglue if you get it on the lens will rune the whole thing. Just tiring to help out . I repair lens shutters all the time they are just mechanical parts nothing really special about them.
