Page 16 refers to picture resolution, apparently once you've chosen the resolution you require you have to

"3. Press the Up/Down button to select the desired image size.
4. Press the Menu button to confirm, save and exit to standby mode".

    Then a stupid camera it is......................My only other thought is go back to Vivitar via the URL above, and use the "Contact" link to ask their techs why the camera doesn't do what its supposed to and what do they propose to resolve the problem.



    If there's been a whole bunch of your camera model with the same problem, they probably know all about it.

I have sony DSC-W190,i want correct menu setting ,bcos if i take a picture its not clear,i think may be menu setting changed,idnt any idea about menu setting pls help.....


Hi,

If the Menu settings in the camera is changed, then I suggest you to reset the Camera back to factory default. Initializing the Camera back to factory default will set all the settings in the Camera back to factory default.
To initialize the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
You can also try a manual reset;

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.


The blurry image capturing can also adjusted by changing the ISO Settings or the Scene Selection modes.


Thanks for using FixYa!

The problem with my laptop is that I rebooted the computer and everything went back to factory settings, I cannot link up with internet using wi-fi capabilities, I press the wi-fi button on the right of...


What do you mean went back to factory settings? Are you referring to the bios settings? Or other else? If you are referring to the bios settings, and everytime you change the bios and rebooted, then back to factory settings then your problem maybe the cmos battery. You can change it and try if everything works fine. And maybe you can't connect using wifi because it is disabled in the bios settings or if not you got a defective wireless module. Hope this will help pal. Maybe you should elaborate your situation more detailed as what is really happening to your laptop,

MOTOROLA W376G...turn off phone on ringtone


Hello!

Set phones ring style as "Vibrate then Ring" , "Vibrate" , or "Silent" to avoid the power on alert.

I set my ring style to "Vibrate then ring" so that I dont have to change the settings everytime I turn it on or forget to so when I receive phone calls or alerts it still rings & then I dont have to go back and change the settings again when I turn tha phone off so that is dosent have the power on alert.

This is the Only way I have found to turn the phone power on tone/alert off.


Change Ring Style:

-Go to Main Menu
-Settings
-Select Ring style
-Then choose change, & set it to the ring style you want.

Tear off


First, if you have your manual, look it at for possible solution. Does this printer have a "load" or "top of form" function? There may be a "programmable" setting which will back the paper back down to the correct spot. The college where I'm employed used to have several Panasonic dot matrix printers, but almost all are now long gone.
