When I try to take a picture, it shows options spinning

When I try to take a picture, it wont take a picture, it just shows the options of Manual, Automatic, Portrait (all the settings available) on the screen in a circle and it will spin in a circle every time I press the shutter button but wont take the picture.. It will not take pictures except for occassionally. I don't know what's going on with it! Any ideas?

    I have the exact same problem. I don't know if it is a software problem or a mechanical problem.

    My Samsung S730 occasionally won't let me take pictures. When I try to, it toggles the capture mode in circles.



    On top of this, it will not take pictures in dim lighting. The flash and red eye doesn't work for some reason. Only takes pictures most of the time only if the flash is off. Even though, once in a while it wouldn't even take a picture with the flash off.



    This is a horrible camera and also takes horrible pictures. Wasn't worth it!

Same problem here. Anyone thinking of buying this camera? DON'T! Only lasted me about 2 years.

sir,
Your camera may be having more options of orientation or keystone or resize etc, if it is set to such options the picture results as you said, please try to re set your camera to factory default. then you try the photos effect.

My camera wont show my photos


Is the display blank only after taking pictures, or blank all the time (i.e., can you see the menus)? If you can see the menus, try performing a Reset All (page 67 in the manual). The idea here is to set the contrast/backlighting to factory presets.

The manual can be found here.

If the display is blank all the time, try holding it near a bright light and look at it from different angles to see if you can see any image on the display (if the backlight isn't working, you may be still able to see items on the display). If that's the case, you may be able to navigate to the menus and perform a Reset All.

Otherwise, pull the batteries out and leave them out for a longer period of time - several days, if possible. This should also reset the camera.

Failing this, you will likley need to send it in for repair.

Screen wont show pictures taken


That has happened to me. All it was for me was the display button. Have you tried pushing the DISP. button? One of the settings is to not have the pictures show up on the screen.

DATE ON PICTURES


In the Camera Settings there is an option to Enable/Disable the date stamp. Look for that option and enable it to get the date on your clicked pics. In the settings only you will find the clock settting / date/time settings to adjust the date and time. Refer your manual.

How do I turn off the date option?


Go to the Capture Menu. In the Capture menu, you can determine the conditions you would like to choose such as Size, Quality, Scene, EV, White Balance, ISO, Color, Saturation, Sharpness and Date Imprint. Press the MENU button and then scroll through the options. Choose "Date Imprint" option and then change it to OFF so that the Date will not be showed on the captured image. If you want the manual just download it from this site "http://www.retrevo.com/support/Vivitar-5100-Digital-Cameras-manual/id/200bh832/t/2/". Hope it helps.

Camera Videos wont download properly


Videos generally run in AVI mode. When putting pictures into the computer, place them in the "My videos" folder instead of the "My pictures" folder. This should solve your problem.

Protected feature


There are 2 probable solutions. 1. The images are "protected" by the camera & will show "locked" when you try to erase them. 2. The SD card in the camera is locked. The solution to 1 is to unlock the images in the playback menu. See page 46 of the manual. Note that you need to select "unlock" you can't select protect as they are already protected! Solution 2 is to remove the card from the camera & check the "lock" slider that you can see on the side (although no all cards have this). Set the lock off. You can download the manual from the first link on the following page: http://www.vivitar.com/manuals/english/ViviCam6300/CameraManual.pdf Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
