Hi,

Until and Unless you would not Press OK, it would not Format the Memory Card. Whenever you want to Format a Card, you go to Options > Set Up > Format > OK ( On most Models ).

In case, you have Punched/Selected OK, it would Format the Card. There is no Inexpensive way to pull out the pictures in that case. You need to seek a Data Recovery Expert or use some Available Online Software's which would cost you a lot of amount and still all Data Cannot be guaranteed.In Few Camera's, you might have a Back Up Option. Refer to Manual. If yes, you could see, if any back log data is there.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi,
Since you are adjusting time so camera asking about time format like 12 hours (am-pm) or 24 hours format.
Adjust time format as you desire and your stored pictures are safe in memory.
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.

Samsung Impression :Daylight savings time moved all the appts


This is the second Samsung phone I have had that did this. The A707-Sync had the same problem. I called Samsung tech support and they told me to disable the auto-update feature for daylight savings. Not a great solution, but the only one I got.

Problem on outdoor daylight picture taking


hi

try the Exposure button [+/-] will generally be disabled in auto mode

try changing mode to 'P' (Program) mode and then change the exposure by pressing the +/- button and then you would generally see a scale on the LCD now press the left button to decrease the exposure

better more is to reset the camera to the default settings this would set the aperture, shutter, Exposure, LCD brightness and otehr settings to defaults and this would save from any unwanted changes than required

cheers
pls rate if it was any help

Camera Ready and Flash


I'f your using alkaline AAs, try using rechargeable NiMH batteries or lithium disposables. Alkalines are very poor at supplying the kind of current needed to recharge the flash. I've found other Samsung cameras to be particularly fussy about batteries, and not always consistently so! Good luck.

Change the time on the magellan roadmate 1212?


I was in same situation with a magellan roadmate 1212. From what I can tell, the "daylight savings" is not what many of us may be accustomed to... that is, that it means that the location you are at follows daylight savings as happens with Windows or many other devices.

I bet those in Arizona never had a problem becuase they don't follow time zone... let me explain....

The daylight savings seems to state "are we currently under daylight savings time?" if we say yes (as you would normally state in your Windows computer setting (that would determine when daylight starts and stops and adjust pc time accordingly), the magellan 1212 instead will "ADD" one hour to the time stated by the Satellites regardless on whether it is summer ... or not.

So, if you happen to live in a time zone that follows "daylight savings" and you currently are under "daylight savings" time, then set it so in the "time zone".

So, there are two things you have to do:

/menu/user options/system settings/time zone/

1)Set your time zone
2)If currently under Set/unset the daylight savings set button to yes and manually move to no when not on DLS.

The explanation I found in MagellanGPS website is below, but never mentions what is the meaning (I should say effect) of the "daylight savings" button checkmark.

Magellan GPS receivers are not able to set the Time manually. In order to have the correct time set on your Magellan GPS receiver, you must set the proper time zone you are located in (ie Pacific, Central or Eastern). Once the time zone is set the exact hour and minute will display as information is received from the satellites. The following information will assist you on setting the time zone on your Magellan GPS. For Outdoor Triton series 200, 300, 400, 500, 1500 and 2000
  1. From the map screen press Menu and select View
  2. Select profiles and press Enter
  3. Select hiking and press Enter
  4. Press the Page/Go To key once and scroll down to select time zone
  5. Press Enter to select your time zone and Enter again to confirm.
  6. Press ESC repeatedly until you return to the map screen.
Note: Make sure Daylight Savings is adjusted accordingly. For Vehicle Navigation series Maestro and RoadMate 1200-1430
  1. From the map screen select Menu
  2. Select User Options
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Time Zone
Note: Make sure Daylight Savings is adjusted accordingly

My S7360 camera will take about seven pictures, then the memory is full.


The internal memory of your camera only has 16MB.

It would not allow you to save many pictures unless you try to change the pixel size of the pictures.
