Display/pics upside down and back to front- Samsung Digimax A55W

Camera was taking photos normally, and the screen went fuzzy when reviewing pictures before going white. Camera was turned off and turned back on, and since then looking to take a photo, reviewing a photo and the menu displays are back to front and upside down. Resetting and changing batteries have not solved the problem. Help! :)

SOURCE: Screen all fuzzy when taking photo.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110

SOURCE: Blank LCD screen

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):

SOURCE: pics turn white with lines when taken outside in day light

Check to see if your ISO is set to a high number like 800 or 1600. If so, set it lower or on auto ISO. Your white balance should probably be on auto white balance. Go into the setup menu and see if your camera has a setting for "reset". This could take your camera back to factory defaults.

When i try to take a photo it comes up with F 2.8 1/30 on the screen for Samsung Digimax S500 Digital Camera. How can I fix this?

When the camera refuses t make a picture, please try putting the main dial to the automatic setting. (most camera's do have that little green camera logo on the dial. Put it there. Then try again.
When you tried one of the manual settings or the scene settings, and the camera does not get enough light, it could be it refuses to take the picture. Same when it can't focus, because there is not enough contrast.

I had taken pictures at my son's 16th bd party. I had looked at them on the camera throughout the night. I took a picture and tried to look at it and the camera said file error. None of the pictures...

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

All of the pictures taken are very fuzzy no matter what you do

check to see if a flower appears on the screen. If it does then the camera is set to macro and all your pictures except close up will be fuzzy. To switch macro off, move the ring on the front of the camera till the arrow is pointed straight down. I was having the same problem. Wasted a whole day of vacation pictures. That was what fixed my problem and I hope it fixes yours too,

My samsung digimax 503 has a white screen!

Oh my gosh this really works! Our screen went white, we hadn't dropped it or anything. The camera still worked fine but we just couldn't see what we were taking a picture of. We tried this solution and now we can see the picture through the screen perfectly. THANKS for posting this!

Deleting unwanted pictures

I have two suggestions. First, you can tag a bunch of your photos on the camera, and then delete them in one operation. You can also delete all the photos on the camera in one operation. This is explained in the owner's manual on page 45 (can be downloaded from Deleting images 1. Select a desired sub menu by pressing the UP/ DOWN button and press the OK button. [Select] : Selection window for an image to delete is displayed. - Up/ Down/ Left/ Right : Select an image - Zoom T Button : Select the image for deletion. (V mark) - OK Button : Press the OK Button to display the confirmation message. Select the [Yes] menu and press the OK button to delete marked images. [All Pics] : Displays confirmation window. Select the [Yes] menu and press the OK button to delete all unprotected images. If there aren?t protected images, all the images are deleted and a [No Image!] message will display. 2. After deletion, the screen will be changed to the play mode screen. My alternative suggestion is to use a better program on your PC for downloading and organizing photos. You can get a really nice (and free!) one at When you download photos using this, it gives you the option of deleting the downloaded photos from the camera at the same time.

Understanding Samsung digimax 4010 camera

First, go out (if you have not already) and buy a set of AA-sized NiMH rechargable batteries and a charger. The Energizer models w/ charger are fine and can be found all over. Alkalines are not useful for this camera (or many others) for very long. Second, the camera should (I'm guessing) default to full auto mode. Turn the camera on, point it and your subject, and hold down the shutter button until it takes the picture. You might want to hold the shutter half-way to let it focus first, but it's not required. Samsung doesn't have a lot of info online about this camera, so it's pretty difficult to give any more tips. I've not used this camera before. Basic functionality should be available right out of the box though.
