There are a couple of possibilities that I can think of:

First, film must be loaded into the camera for the picture counter to increment.

Second, if you've loaded film, but the counter still does not change, it is possible the film is not advancing (the film release button/knob/lever that you use to rewind the film may be activated) or the film has slipped off the sprockets on the take-up spool.

If you can stand to lose the photos you may have already taken, just open the back of the camera and make sure the film is advancing when you take a photo.

If you can't possibly lose the photos, rewind the film and take the film to be developed. Try to find a local developer that only charges for the photos that "came out"... This can save a lot of money if only a few frames develop properly (or if none come out!)

Too much brightness when using s6800


I do not know the S6800 model specifically however, nikon cameras all generally work in the same way. Somewhere on your camera, probably a button or in the menus, there is an exposure compensation setting. The symbol Nikon uses for the button is a "+/-" enclosed in a circle (often half black on white/white on black printing). Press the button and you will either see a zero, a positive or negative number or a a scale with zero in the center with positive numbers to the right and negative numbers to the left.
If the exposure compensation is not at zero, set it to zero. Your exposures should now be correct. If it is already at zero, set it to a negative number to reduce exposure and darken the picture and to a positive number to increase exposure and lighten the picture. Let me know if this solved your problem.

When I look through the eye hole of the Canon Rebel t1i, the view and numbers of the eye hole are blurry even though everything is auto focused, and when I take the picture, it's clear. Why is the eye hole...


There's a diopter adjustment knob just to the right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder at a blank wall until the numbers in the viewfinder appear sharp. This knob allows the camera to adjust for individual eyesight.

When I take a picture, the camera focuses just fine. But when I'm looking in the viewfinder it looks fuzzy, even if it comes out clear. What's wrong and how do I fix it?

Screen stays black when turned on in take picture/video mode


There is something wrong with the lens. Perhaps its obstructed by something or the lens doesn't really open @ all. Try cleaning the lens with lint free cloth if not. Follow the in-warranty repair process @ www.kodak.com/go/stepbystep the website will ask you to troubleshoot first. Just keep following the website in the end if issue persist it will give you the page that you need to fill up so that you can send your camera and repair.
Note: After filling-up the information on the page and completing it wait for an e-mail from Kodak it will give you details how to send your camera for repair. It will also contain the address and phone number of the repair centre.

Need to reset scope to zero


Turn the ajdustment knob, all the way in one direction. Then, counting the number of clicks as you do it, turn it all the way in the OTHER direction. Do this slowly. Turn it back, HALF that number, and it will be zeroed. Example - If the total number of clicks is 32, turn it back 16 clicks, to zero the crosshairs.

My minolta sightseen camera wont take pictures?


The blinking zero would indicate that the film has not loaded but the cartridge is in place. The camera won't do anything when this occurs. Try opening the film door and load the roll again

Optio 550 Picture Count Problem


I have the 555 and there is a place if you look in the manual that you can set things to either stay permanently or change when you turn the camera off...I am sorry I cannot remember offhand what it is called. It is in the menu and I think it might be like User Settings....anyways....one of the options is the picture counter. You can either have it be continuous or have it go to zero each time you reformat the card. Personally, I like it to go back to zero with each reformat, but I know others do not. Anyways, maybe you inadvertantly fiddled with this setting???
