Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

PC Mode I have one that for 2 secs maybe, I can see something I could take a picture of.  Problem is that on second 3 the camera screen has switched to saying PC Mode, even though it is most definitely not attached to the computer.  I have tried removing the battery and the cards and putting them back in, and still only get PC Mode.  Someone said something on another board about possibly a reset button, but I don't know if the sony dsc-s50 has one.  Has anybody else had a similar problem, or does anyone know if there is a reset button and where it is if there is one?  I'd really appreciate any help I could get.  Thanks in advance

My olympus camera won't charge properly

If the camera battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Nikon D3100 shutter "problem"?

Are your pictures properly exposed and are they sharp or are your pictures degraded? Is that 1/3-second you describe a delay between the time you push the shutter release and the time the picture is taken or somthing else? Check to make sure you're in the proper shutter release mode (slider switch to right of the mode dial). Also, your self-timer may be turned on. Your camera allows you to set a 2 or 10 second delay from the menus. If it is set to 2 seconds and turned on, it might seem like a 1/3-second delay. If that doesn't help, you camera is covered by Nikon's warranty. Contact Nikon Service at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

When I turn on my Canon PC 1130 to take a picture, the lcd screen and view finder just show a black screen. Camera is working fine in the play mode. Please help.

Set the camera in TV mode, (delayed shutter mode) set the shutter at 15 sec, click to take a picture and during that 15 secs (like, after 7 seconds) open the battery compartment which cuts contact with the battery circuit. Close the battery cover. At this point the camera works fine ... but only temporarily.... Here is the key to the permanent fix. While the camera is working via the temporary fix, take many, many pictures. Hundreds! I probably snapped 400-600 pics. The idea is to wear down the little patches of hardened oil on the shutter blades. For the next three days I took hundreds of pics each day. Basically, I just aimed the camera at the wall or whatever and snapped off several hundred pics.

EX-S1: fault in function and data transfer

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Self timer

1. Press the Func/Set button
2. On the left side of the LCD, scroll down to Drive Mode icon (usually a square, third item down)
3. Use right arrow key to select clockface with 2 (2 sec delay) or 10 (10 sec delay)
4. Press the Func/Set button

Now whenever you press the shutter button, the camera will delay 2 or 10 seconds before a picture is taken. Use the same steps to go back to normal (square icon) drive mode.

Timer on samsung digital camera?

Sure ... be sure to use a tripod or other device to place the camera for stability.
  • Set the MODE DIAL to your desired photo setting
  • Press the SELF-TIMER button on the button pad (looks like a clock/timer on the right button pad)
  • There are three settings
    • 10 SEC - 10 seconds will pass until the picture is taken
    • 2 SEC - 2 seconds until the picture is taken
    • Double self-timer - a picture will be taken after 10 seconds, and then after 2 seconds a second picture will be taken.
  • Press the SHUTTER button to begin the timer.
  • Jump in the shot! =)

Dark LCD

Is it possible that you've gone into M (manual) mode and the shutter speed is fast and a small aperture (large number) been selected? Or has the Exposure compensation been adjusted to be -2? Does it do the same thing in fully automatic mode? It certainly sounds like some setting has been adjusted incorrectly.
