Camera Won't Take Pictures!

I've had my Sony for about a year and I've never had any problems with it. I turned it on one day, and it wouldn't take pictures. It says "Recording" in red, when I try to take a picture. It still takes videos in the Move mode though. It just won't take pictures. I never screwed around with the camera settings and I don't know whats going on! Can someone please help me?

My camera says the memory card is locked and memory card error appears when I turn on the camera. I've read that I have to format the card, but won't the photos be destroyed? How can I get my pictures

There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it. DO NOT format the card until you've BACKED UP your files from it (typically to a PC or USB drive (stick or external hard drive).

I've misplaced the CD-ROM that came with my Sony DSC-W220 digital camera. Is there somewhere I can download the driver so that I can upload the pictures from my camera on to my window xp

You don't need a driver. 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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

My DSC W90 is 4 years old -- I love it -- and I've never had problem -- with it until now. It rotates pictures on its own! When I view the pix that I've JUST taken, they look fine. When I turn...


If you have an exceptional amount of pictures on your camera...This could be a simple problem solver? You need to remove some or all your of your pictures from your camera to create more memory and storage.

You have a couple of options

Save all your pictures to memory card, from the memory card save to your computer in a file or to a USB Flash Drive (Cruzer), or on a CD/DVD disk.

Or, install a new Memory card that has more Storage Capabilities.

You need to check your setting as to how the pictures are viewed and stored, it's possible you have your camera set to auto rotate and also auto set format...change these settings to manual!

Kind regards!

When I connect the Coolpix S3000 to the computer to transfer pictures, it turns off and won't turn on

I've had some S3000's become gimmicy when connecting to a computer. The easiest way I've found to get photos off of the camera is to use a card reader connected to your computers USB.

Camera doesn't turn on or do anything

I had a similar problem. Mt battery was dead but showed a charge when I put it in the camera. See if you can borrow a battery from another owner or camera shop and try it.
