Mu 7.1 meg camera

My camera is able to view previous photos.
But when I try to do other things like take a photos or put it on SCN, it comes up with a blue screen saying

5f08 and then 5E2

I have taken the battery and XD card out, turned it off and on, and it comes up with the same error.

    Also make sure that the dial is not between any two functions/programmes or try holding the digital camera with the lens upward when you switch it on

    Here is a user manual as well:

    It could be possible that the camera lens is stuck as well. I suspect there is an alignment issue and partially disassembling the
    unit it gives the lenses enough room to re-align themselves.

    is easy even if you're remotely handy with tools. All you need is a set
    of jeweler's screwdrivers (less than $20.00 at any hardware store).
    However, do so at your own risk and only if your camera is out of

    Here's how to do it (Make sure you have fresh batteiries installed):

    1. Remove the 3 silver screws on the side and bottom of the camera.
    2. Remove the 1 silver screw in the data port.
    At the point of the bottom screw, pry the front cover up and work
    around to the thin side of the camera. Once you have this end pried up,
    you can pull the front cover off exposing the front half of the camera.
    Remove the plastic chrome spacer ring that goes around the sides of the
    camera. Start where the bottom silver screw was and work it around and
    off. Careful, it's a bit flimsy.
    5. Remove the 4 black crews at each corner of the camera.
    Again, starting from the thin side of the camera, pry the front half of
    the camera (grey) away form the back half (silver). There's a bit of
    sticky stuff holding them together, but keep pulling gently but firmly
    until the two halves are seperated. NOTE: There is a flat "hook" on the
    bottom of the back half of the camera that is under the serial number
    sticker - you may need to gently lift up the sticker to get this hook
    to come free (I used a knife blade to pry up the sticker).
    7. Once
    you have the two halves free, notice the copper colored ribbon cables
    between the front and back halves of the camera - BE SURE TO NOT
    8. Now
    turn the camera on. My problem was solved that this point - lenses
    fully extended with no problems and LED screen acting normally.
    Reassemble the camera in reverse order. The only tricky part is the
    "hook" on the bottom of the back half needs to go *under* the serial
    number sticker.

    Well, I'm afraid, that all the troubleshooting steps available for the error codes. You may have to take the camera to a service center for further repairs..It looks like a problem with either the CCD or the circuitry, which will need an qualified technician to repair.

The viewfinder is black when I try to take a photo but \i can still view previously taken photo and all the date/time etc,., info is on the view finder

Some thing is wrong with the electronics that send the image to the viewfinder when you compose a picture. Not good especially if you zoom in and aim is off.

That camera can be repaired but is it cost effective to do? The parts are proprietary and the labor on those things is extensive. Unless it is a very expensive piece of gear, you might just be better off replacing it.

Good moening. How do I remove the chip from my Exilim 7.2 meg camera, it won't just slip out. I wish to put into my computer to transfer photo's?

The Exilim is using SD-cards to store the photos. These are usually unlocked by pushing them in a little. Try using your thumbnail to push it, then remove the pressure. It will spring back and come out a little. Then grab it and pull it out completely.
Also, you can connect the camera directly to the computer via USB, which may be more comfortable for you, if you just want to transfer the photos.

Day time photos are white and other photos are not natural, either reddish or yellowish.

Please readjust the ISO.
In order to find a pattern please experiment: For example: Try Different SCN (If you're experiencing this problem with your night pictures try and use SCN night, the logo shows a moon and a star, with or without Flash.

When I view the pictures my screen is all fuzzy/ lines throughout

Does this problem appear on the LCD only or on the printed pictures and the LCD?

Is this on all the pictures or just in certain SCN?
Try different SCN and ISO to see if problem still persists.
If the problem is intermitted, try to find a pattern in to when the faulty pictures appear.

If the problem persists please contact KODAK for a repair.

The 1GB disk, only takesabout 22 pictures beforeit says the memory is full

Check the setting where the pictures are being stored. It may be still storing to the internal memory.

Also check what resolution you are capturing your snaps. Although 22 pictures should not fill your memory but high resolution photos can take 5-6 MB /photo, so you can accomodate about 180-200 photos in 1GB. Try reducing the photo resolution, if you are not planning to print them.

Also, have you downloaded all the previous snaps from the card and deleted it from the 1GB card?

Wont take photos outside

The symptoms you're describing could be caused by either the "Fireworks" special scene selection mode, or manual mode with too much exposure compensation. Look at your mode selector (back of the camera, upper left hand corner). Is the mode set to the still image setting (pointing at the liittle red camera)? Or is it set to special scene selection (SCN)?

If you are unintentionally in SCN mode, to get it out of "Fireworks", just turn the mode selector dial to select "still image" (pointing at the little red camera). Or you can also select an SCN mode more appropriate for outdoors. Just turn the dial to SCN, press the FUNC button, then press the left/right arrow buttons to select Portrait, Beach, Snow etc...

But if your mode selector is already in still image selection, then check to make sure that you're not in "Manual" picture mode. Turn the mode selector dial to "still picture mode" (pointing at the little red camera), then press the "FUNC" button. Now look at the bottom of the screen. If it says "Manual", press the "left" button controller once to select and put the camera in "Auto" still picture mode.

How to increase brightness in Canon Powersot A620 ?

Are you asking about brightness as viewed on the LCD, or are you asking about increasing brightness on the actual image taken? If it's the image, there are two special modes that you can select on your mode dial. They are "Night Scene", "Night Snaphot", and "Indoor". A description of both, along with your camera's other special settings, may be found here:

"Night Scene" can be selected directly from the dial. It's the one showing a person standing under a star. Note that Night Scene should be used with a tripod to reduce the potential for blurriness.

"Night Snapshot" works almost as well, but does not require a tripod. It can be accessed by selecting SCN on the dial, and then pressing right or left with the selection buttons until it shows in the menu. The camera will remember this setting the next time you select SCN. I usually keep my camera always set to this setting so that I merely have to select SCN to use it.

"Indoor" works very well in those large rooms that may produce dark backgrounds when taking photos. It also does not require a tripod. It's accessed the same way as "Night Snapshot" (Select SCN, then right/left until selected). This is another good setting that I like to keep sometimes set in SCN.

Try all three settings, (and don't forget all the others too). Think you'll be impressed.

Blank screen

So you can see images that are on the card from previous taking but not new? Just to confirm - this is an optical SLR? With a mirror that flips up when you press the button - is that right? If so it souns like to mirror is not going up. Can you hear it go up? Come back
