Did you mean if the camera/battery needs to be completely charged before using the it? It doesn't matter actually however, as much as possible, don't turn on the camera or remove the battery from the charger if it isn't fully charged

Cant download photo too my laptop


Latinlord_17,
Are you sure the camera is on and charged while it is connected to the computer?
If not, you may need to charge the device via a power adapter to ensure a better experience.
If the camera is charged, I will provide two sets of instruction, one for Mac OS X and the other for Windows.
Windows:
  1. Take the USB cable that came with your camera and plug it into the correct ports on both the camera and computer.
  2. Windows should detect the camera and launch "Windows Photo and Fax Viewer" wizard, and ask you what the default action should be when you connect the camera.
  3. Upon clicking NEXT, you should then see your photos loading up on the screen, scroll down to the button that says Import All
  4. When the download is complete, your pictures should be inside the My Pictures folder in Documents
Mac OS X:
  1. Take the USB cable that came with your camera and plug it into the correct ports on both the camera and computer.
  2. OS X should detect the camera, and prompt to launch the iPhoto application
  3. Inside iPhoto, you should then be able to see a camera icon with your camera's name on the left-hand bar. Click on this icon.
  4. Upon seeing your photos, on the right hand portion of the screen, you should see a button that says Import Pictures.
  5. After the download is complete, the pictures are stored inside iPhoto and can be viewed in the Events portion of the application.
Hope this helps.

Nikon d80 dslr camera working fine and then one day turned it on to take pictures only to find an err message flashing and when the shutter button depressed it says r04. The shutter sounds but no pictures...


HiI am sorry to hear, but you will have to some professional. Regarding your d80 has common problem of sequence unit defective. I believe that is the problem and your local repair shop would charge around $75 to 235 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

I'm going to assume the pictures you have on the camera are not worth keeping. I'm going to assume you have the owners manual so the first thing I'd like your to do is check to make sure the SD card is unlocked here is a diagram.

Next I would like your to format the memory SD card page 40 of your manual here is the best diagram I can provide.

Once this has been completed turn the Main Dial page 16 to "P" program and the camera will begin making correct pictures.

If you are inside and a flash is needed use the button on the forward side of the camera the one with the lightning bolt an the internal flash will pop up and charge. Look through the viewfinder and partially (half depress) the shutter button look for your green dot in focus indicator and the green lightning bolt to come on (when the flash is in use) compose your picture and depress the shutter button the rest of the way. You have just made a picture. Study your manual and have fun with your new camera

The old used battery was probably not used for a long time and in time, completely discharged and died. It can't be brought back. I don't know why your camera won't turn on with the original battery.

After a while of reloading camera firmware and resetting defaults, I came tothis conclusion. You need to do a mock CCD cleaning on the camera which abuilt-in feature of the 7D, in which the camera locks up the mirror momentarilyso you can clean the CCD. But of course you do not need to clean the ccdat this point. Below are procedures to help get your camera back inoperation.

1.Try turning the camera off, then take out the battery.

2.Then replace the fully charged battery back in and turn the camera on but donot take any pictures.

3.Go to the menu of your camera and activate the CCD cleaning, which willactivate mirror lockup.

4.You will hear a mirror lock up/half exposure cycle sound.

5.One you hear this, take the lens off and make sure you can see the CCD but donot touch the CCD or allow dust to get on it.

6.Now place the lens back over the camera and turn the camera off.

7.You will hear the mirror unlock itself, then the camera will shut down.

8.Now turn the camera back on and start taking pictures.

This worked for me and my camera started taking better pictures; however, thesame problem came up again when I let the camera sit too long with a deadbattery. So I repeated the procedures and my camera is back.

My advice is never leave a completely dead battery in the camera. Alwaysstore fully charged batteries in the camera.

Disney Pix Micro Digital - stopped working after 10 minutes


The type or memory in the camera requires a charge in order to store data. So if you have any pictures on the camera it will constantly be pulling a charge from the battery until the battery is completely drained. If you have this problem even with a brand new battery it's possible that the memory may be corrupt and needs to be cleared. To do this just remove the battery and press both buttons several times each to make sure that the camera is completely discharged, replace the battery with a brand new battery and try again. If that fails I'd get in touch with customer service for a replacement.
