Can't download pictures

I want to download pictures to my computer, but when I open to a picture, it disappears and a light blinks next to the view finder. I don't believe I have anywhere near 1000 pictures in the camera at this time.

I found the Camera User Guide, that displays all of the controls with labels and descriptions, and found out I had not pushed the the Print/Share button. As soon as I did this, everything was fine. Thanks for your concern.

Intermittent blanking on pictures displayed


There's nothing wrong. The blinking areas are blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that the camera thinks are overexposed.
While viewing the picture, press cursor-up/down to cycle through the different views of your picture.

You can use a card reader to try to download them to your computer. You could also take the card to a store like Walmart and use one of their picture making machines.

How to download pictures from my olympus camera to apple computer


Have you tried just connecting the computer to your apple ... via a USB cable ? Usually, after you connect it, iPhoto will open up and provide a view of all the pictures on the digital camera's memory. You can then (on the iPhoto screen) choose to download all the pictures, or select pictures to download.

Blank screen on Canon A610 Power Shot. Can't view pictures taken or from memory card.


Are the downloaded pictures also black when viewed on your computer? If so, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Unable to download pictures to my computer


Consider 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.

Camera does not respond when turned on or when plugged in to recharge.


I followed the advice of my Fixya adviser--remove the battery for 3 minutes then plug the USB cable into a different port on my computer and plus in the camera. I did that and turned the camera on as advised but the green light still did not blink. The adviser did not respond when I asked what to do next so I disconnected the camera from the computer and plugged it into the charger. This time the first blue light started blinking (nothing happened when I tried it before following the Fixya advice). I left the camera to charge all night and eventually, after about 12 hours, it did.
Seems O.K. now.

Lost pictures


You may have never formatted your memory card. This can eventually lead to errors like you're experiencing. First download all available pictures from the card. Next turn on the camera in preview mode. Press the menu button, then select the "tools" menu (second one from left). Go down the menu to the menu item stating your memory card's capacity and select it. Next select "Yes" to format. Note that this will also totally erase your card, so again make sure to FIRST download your pictures.

File error


I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick.  Try to get a replacement.  If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.
