Question about Cameras

Camera causes windows to crash

I just got a new digital camera today but whenever I set it to PC mode it gives me the blue screen. It's the Technika SH-A366, so no drivers to download and the manual is no help either. Basically, to get pictures off the camera you plug it into your PC via USB cable then switch the camera on to automatically bring up the USB mode screen on the camera. It gives you 3 options; PC; PictBridge (for printers) and webcam but no matter which one I select it causes Windows to give me the blue screen pretty much instantly. If I so much as leave the camera plugged into the PC after resetting it, it'll go straight to the blue screen unless I unplug it and reset again. I've uninstalled everything to do with the camera, but still nothing seems to work. I'm a fairly computer literate person but I've never seen anything like it, so I figured I'd ask the experts!

    hi i solved it by rooling back the drives now it works


I've found that if you leave it and wait, eventually the dialogue box will pop up and you'll be able to deal with it that way.
Bad fault nonetheless.

Pictures appear pink on camera screen and when downloaded to computer-what would cause this?

Perhaps you did select a SCN mode, with the main dial. Or chose a wrong white balance setting. Please switch the camera to the green loge on the main dial (auto mode) and check if that gives a better result. Start experimenting with other settings when you have a little more experience with the camera. Auto will give perfect pictures in 99% of all shots.

Nikon strongly recommends using the digital camera to format PC cards before use in the camera. Formatting in the camera ensures the proper settings and will give the most reliable operation. Cards can also be formatted using a computer, but the "File System" setting must be changed to "FAT" before formatting (see screen shot to the right. If left at any other setting the card will not work in the camera.
Cards can not be formatted using a Macintosh computer.

Canon powershot A720is continually powers my computer on and off

Don't thru the camera out the window as it is working on the other system.

I assume you are connecting the camera to the computer USB port; if yes, please check the USB drivers of the operating system on the computer. there might be a physical USB port issue, or USB driver issue or USB port over current issue.

Check all this things before connecting ur camera or check with any other USB device.

Camera screen remains black when I turn on shooting mode

Turn the camera on. With the screen showing, press the DISP button and this will give you a selection of different screen views i.e. squares for aligning shot squarely; black - thru viewfinder only; etc. Different modes will give you different screen displays i.e. P setting screens are different to when you have the camera set on AUTO.

Hope this helps.
