    ok, this is whats happening--- i can take pictures but, i can not show them after i take them. i have followed the previous owners instructions to be able to show my old pictues. which was to push the button with the arrow on it first then push the center of the round button. but when i push the button with the arrow on it the green light starts flashing and the screen goes blank, not off just blank. then i cant even get the camera to turn off or do anything.

    i have put the camera in show picture mode but, when i push show picture mode the little green lite starts blinking fast then the screen goes blank. the camera doesnt go off but i cant get it to do anything. yes batteries are new.

    i did what you said and i think the card was the wrong one. cause when i put it on show picture mode , it came up "no image". that was without the card. the card in the camera is a lexar 2gb.

Im not sure I understood whats wrong ...but I guess it is something with the mode.....from what you are saying the camera is in show pictures(viewer )mode..and you want to use it to take pictures...in this case see that it has to have a switch for the shooting mode...it is usually located in the right side of the lcd monitor....and the process can be inverted if you switch it the other way ...I mean if you want to view them and it is in picture taking mode...just use that button to get in view mode...and than use teh arrows to see them one by one..

    ok ...pushing the button with the arrow on the side puts the camera in viewing picture mode....The fact that it goes blank is not a good sign ..and unless other settings works in this mode...(I mean try to press the others to see if it has any kinda menu ) it means tha t the feature is no longer functional ..and the readings of the card ..or ..the software suffered a problem ...
    So try to see if there are any buttons that work in this mode...and if you get any menu ...look for something like preview..to check ...
    if any o fthese do not work ...get back in the main menu ..and look for a general reset or something like that ...(get the card out first to avoid deleting if you have pictures on it ..)
    You have a chanse to be something related with a view setting that it is not supported or need something set ...and if you reset it to the factory defaults it may get back to theh original functions...
    if all these wont work ..it means that this function is dead...
    put the card into a card reader..or install the driver and see with the data cable..if the camera at least takes the pictures..this way at least you will be able to use it ..

    thats why I sugested to verify it in a card reader ...there are 2 posibilities...either the card is too big and the camera do not support it ...or it need a formating so the camera will read it (this in case it ws used to another kinda files and the camera blocks cause it can not read them ) to see if the vew works ...take a picture or too ..without the card ...it will store them in the camera 's internal memory ...after that try to see if it shows them .. if does..this means the camera is ok ..and you will need to format the card again in FAT...and try ..or change the card with another model or size..(smaller ) cause some camera's are a little pretentious when it gets to cards..
    another issue may be that the card is just issued for good...Check it anyway ..and if you do not find the format feature in the menu ...format it in the computer ...but choose Fat or Fat 32 so that will be read in the camer a..

    Please ignore the above gibberish; the FixYa site was blocking the post I had carefully prepared for you.

    I can help you view your pictures on the Polaroid i830:




    The playback button is seen above, just below the button marked 'W'.
    Press once for playback mode, to see pictures.
    Press again for capture mode, to take pictures.

    Use the sides of the 'circle' button to view previous or next picture.

    Click here to download the Polaroid i830 manual, for future reference.

    I hope that helps.

How to open battery door for vivicam F126


Well after looking at the manual, it is of no help but the pictures show it hinging open. Try pressing down and sideways along the compartment door from hinge line to outer edge. It it slides, it should unlock.

Read reviews that indicated Vivitar customer support told an owner to visit a camera shop. Manual is on the CD included with the camera.

Good luck.

I have a d80.problem: lcd will not show anything. lcd will show previous taken pictures


Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button?
The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.

SD CARD DOES NOT SHOW PICTURES ALREADY ON IT IN FUJI Z35


Your previous camera wasn't another Z35, was it? Most cameras will not display pictures that were taken with another camera. The old pictures are most likely still on the card. You can plug the card into a card reader and transfer them to a computer.

GHOSTS IN MY HOUSE


Place a video camera in the room where the piano is located, and another pointed at the pictures.

The camera will show the spirit or gremlin that is causing your haunting.

Since many spirits are camera shy, it may cause them to leave.

Good Luck!

I took my memory card out of the camera, put it in my computer, and proceeded to download. It showed 200+ pictures, then there was nothing but 31. I can not find where these pictures went. I was never in a...


First of all, check to see if all the pictures appear when the card is in the camera. If so, then your camera is making new folders as you shoot and not continuing the numbering sequence. Take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. The pictures will all show up and you can print them or even make a cd from them.

Problem receiving good video and sound using skype. Picture comes through choppy, fuzzy and very grainy. I am told that my video and sound that i send out is great but I'm not receiving it the same.


Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
