    Hi



    I just got a DSC-S40 from a friend. I actually swoped my previous camera for this one. When I switch it on, the lens seems to get stuck and not come out all the way. I makes a grinding noise and does not show any picture on the screen. The flash goes off when I push the button, and the little guide dots on the lcd screen shows, but the the screen stays black. I am able to view the photo's that are on the camera taken before this problem, but am unable to take any photo's now. The shutter opens and closes when i switch it on and off, but the lens seems to get stuck half way out...help???

What do you do when camera says internal memory filled.


Digital cameras store pictures on their internal memory. Often users transfer their photographs to memory cards, because memory cards store more data and are accessible in computers, other digital cameras and other devices. When you want to move pictures stored on the internal memory card, do so through the camera's menu
1 Place the memory card into the digital camera.
2 Turn on the digital camera.
3 Access the digital camera's menu. Digital cameras have a button labeled "Menu" near the LCD screen. Push this button to open the menu.
4 Select the Pictures option. Select the photos on your internal memory using the "Select" or "OK" button on the arrow pad on the back of the camera. Click "Copy" and choose "Memory Card" to copy the files to the memory card. If there is more than one picture that needs copying to the memory card, perform this step for each picture.

Have a good day! Smile : )

Canon Powershot SD1000: LCD screen display


Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!

NO REMOTE


Hi there. The actual button option that you will need to use for this adjustment will be the aspect button and, unfortunately, this button is only on the remote and not on the TV itself. If there is a control panel located on one of the sides of this set, you may be able to push the menu button here and navigate your way threw the menus screen to the aspect option. I suspect you will need the remote.

please rate and God bless..

Positon of picture


I believe there is an auto-center option in the computer part of the menu. If this does not work there is also a position option like CRT's have, that will allow you to manually change the position of the picture. If all else fails try changing your resolution to 1280 x 800, then auto-centering.

Normal Picture Mode Not Available With Cox HD-DVR (Motorola DCH3416) and HDMI Cable


With an HDMI cable connected, the cable box determines the picture size. The settings on the cable box must be changed in order for you to get the correct picture size. I have some experience with Motorola cable boxes; usually to access the settings you turn the box OFF and then press the menu or settings button on the box to bring up the display menu. Hope this helps!
