The problem you have is defective CCD (charged couple devise). This is the IC chip that produces the picure in the camera mode. It will have to be replaced by a technician. After replacement, the lens assy will have to be aligned to new CCD using service software. I can do this for you at a cost of $135.00 including the CCD with a 90 day warranty. You may contact me @ 615-400-1440 or fselman@comcast.net

My new t21 display said "unable to access card" my


If you are using the camera to download pictures to the computer you should be able to set around this problem by purchasing a card reader. These plug into the USB port and the camera SD card plugs into the reader, the computer then loos at the SD card as an external Hard Drive. Create a new folder in ? "My Documents" transfer the files from the camera memory card (copy past) into the new folder and you have your pictures not on the computer hard drive.

Do a "safely remove" "eject" or what ever language you computer uses to shut off the connection and disconnect the memory card from the reader.

Format the memory card in the camera always format the memory card after downloading pictures to the computer and always make sure it has completed the download and you have turned off the feed.

Failing this your do two things corrupt the card and possibly the camera software.

Okay another thing that the SD card have is a lock I'm giving you a diagram to see and make sure the card is in the write position.

I do not have the cd that comes with the camera


Unfortunately, Canon does not offer these discs for download on their site. You would likely need to purchase used from eBay (not recommended). But please take this as an opportunity to try an alternative (and what many believe a better way) to download your photos.
Highly recommend that you consider using a USB card reader to download your pictures. You insert the camera's SD card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days, and widely available. Here are some examples from China (with free worldwide shipping). But there are many others available on the net if you look.

Nikon D60 use of Display to take pictures rather than view finder


The Nikon D60 does not have "live view" capability, so you'll need to use the viewfinder to frame you shots. If you need "live view" capability, consider purchasing the D80 or D90 instead with offer the feature...

Blurred Pictures on Polaroid a500 Digital Camera


Could be:

1. if her hands shake abit while takeing a image that might be it.
2. bad quality selected in cameras settings, read manual for more info on quality setting.
3. lens problem, is it dirty?

if this problem hasnt been here since the day the camera whas bought and none of those 3 work then there might be a hardware issue with the camera, lens damaged? etc.

try takeing a image by haveing the camera sit on a table, then use your pc to check if the picture is blurred.

You can take the camera for analysis to a local electronics or pc repairshop.

You have internal problems, possibly the ccd . Also there could be internal connections which have become loose.

Needs repair.

This may not be able to be fixed.
Sounds like internal trouble.
Could be a loose link internally. Could be some problem with the ccd sensor. If the colors change as you are trying to take a picture, then suspect the ccd sensor.
If it is the ccd, then Nikon may fix it for free.
I suggest you go to the Nikon website for your country, and call the (usually toll free) number for service and information.
Take care,
