Sounds like the camera changed the name of the recording folder. My Sony does that sometimes with video and still frame shots, its puts them in two different folders. It also may be only recording onto the internal memory. Take the memory card out and try to use a card reader and see if there is anything on it. You can use various recovery software to check it out if you dont see anything. pics are never lost, they are simply not indexed anymore. When you delete pics, you are basically resetting the table of contents of the card. It will now allow new pics to overwrite the old ones. Same as a hard drive. If you truly want to wipe a card or hard drive, you need to overwrite the entire media with 0's and then 1's at least 5 times over. That is minimum when erasing govt. data. So the DATA is still on there, its just not indexed. recovery software will find and rebuild the index table.

Dear Claireee,
If this is DSC-S500 Sony cyber-shot, you should scan it with updated anti-viruse software and then format its internal memory with USB connected to PC. Hope problem will be solved.

I have a cybershot DSC W55. When the power button is switched on the lens extends and the "access" message shown on screen. Also amber light is flashing above screen. After a few seconds I get a message to power on and off again. I\'ve tried switching on and off a few times, removing battery pack and memory card, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

Locked up


On my Moultrie MFG-DGW 2.1, I was unable to change settings etc... It seemed to be locked at the Date/Time screen. I powered off the unit, removed the memory card. Turned on the unit. Then I could change the settings. I made my changes, powered the unit off, reinserted the memory card, turned the unit back on and it read the card and I could make changes too. This happens from time to time. I just have to follow those steps to clear it.

Hope that helps.

Frustrated in Colorado! Camera won't power on :(


Hi,
If you are talking about Sony DSC-S500 power problem, please clean its battery terminals as it seems clogged and you will see them black.
Please clean them with alcohol and terminals should be shining like gold.
Thank you.

If you open the camera up, whick I know is an intricate task, and take the screen down but don't unplug it, at the right bottom their is something that resembles a watch battery, if you can figure out how to get it off and find a replacement it will be fixed... This battery serves a a sort of memory power, even though you have batteries, this battery keeps the memory for the camera's software, so inturn without it the camera is dead in the water. this is fixable!

Whit screen means A. connector has come adrift from the main board. or B. Component failure on the main board. If A. try to restore by gently tapping and squeezing the casing around the base of the screen this may get it back. Do get on to the Samsung Tech Support team - in case this is a known issue. An out of warranty repair is not a likely scenario however.
