Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

  • Reset component settings. Usually, the problems you encounter with a projection TV may be resolved through the resetting to its factory settings. If you experience inaccuracies in the color, reset the television's PerfectTint/PerfectColor capabilities. Simply press the Menu tab and then highlight "Perfect Color" using your right key arrow. After this, press "Enter" and then "Reset" in order to reset to factory settings. If you have audio / video problems (VCR or DVD player), simply press "Menu" and highlight the "Reset" option.
Reset television controls. In case you cannot fix your TV via its component settings, there are other ways of resetting. Just select "Menu", key in "1, 2, 3", and then press "Enter." In doing this, the TV's manufacturer's specifications will all be restored. If your TV's power system does not function, you should perform a complete system reset. You can do this by clicking on Reset System button located at the TV's control panel. Your television will be turned off and then a green light (LED) will quickly flash for approximately one minute. Once the light has stopped flashing, your TV should immediately turn on.

My Nintendo Dsi XL will not upload pictures to Facebook


  1. Turn on your Nintendo DSi.
  2. If you already have a picture saved on your Nintendo DSi that you'd like to upload, you can skip ahead to step four. If you're taking a picture on the fly, proceed to step three.
  3. Press the "R" button on the upper-right shoulder of the Nintendo DSi to access the camera. Follow the on-screen instructions to take your picture. Press "Save."
  4. On the Nintendo DSi menu, press the "Nintendo DSi Camera" icon. Go to your "Album."
  5. Select the picture you want to upload. If you're interested, you can edit the picture first with stamps, graffiti, lens distortion, and other neat built-in features. When you're done, return to the Album's main menu.
  6. Once you're ready to upload your picture to Facebook, click on the Facebook icon that appears above your picture when you scroll past it on the Album's main menu.
  7. You will need to connect your Nintendo DSi to the Internet, and log onto Facebook. Your DSi will ask you for the email address and password you registered with Facebook.
  8. If your login information is correct, a prompt will ask you if you want to upload your photo to Facebook. Click "Yes."
  9. When you upload your first Nintendo DSi picture, a "Nintendo DSi" picture album will be created automatically on Facebook. You must use Facebook to add captions to your photos, and view/reply to comments your friends make on your pictures.
Tips:
  1. -Make sure your Nintendo DSi's internet settings are working before you upload your photos.
  2. -You can edit your album information from Facebook, However, next time you upload a picture from your Nintendo DSi, another album titled "Pictures from Nintendo DSi" will be created automatically, and your new picture will be stored in it.
  3. -You won't need to enter your email address every time you want to upload a photo to Facebook from your DSi, but you will need to re-enter your password.
What You Need:
  • A Nintendo DSi
  • A working wireless Internet connection
  • A Facebook account

No pictures recorded/black screen


it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.
