I had this same problem with my first digital camera, when I learned that you must push the shutter button half way down until the little light comes on. I really felt foolish, but now I wait on the camera to get done with its process, and am getting wonderful pictures.

Brand new camera, inserted the flash card, formatted per instructions. I take a picture but I can't play anything back. It does not record pictures on the flash card. If I remove the flash card and use...


On some cameras, once you use the internal memory, you must format it and completely erase it before a regular memory card will work. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, never use the internal memory again.

My camera still wont power up


Try using a separate card reader to download your pictures. That way, you bypass the camera/computer connection altogether.

Screen is black on playback & picture mode


Have you tried taking pictures when the screen is black? Do the pictures also come out black? If so, try putting it in any mode other than auto and turning off the flash (don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the front of the lens and take a picture. You should see a little flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If you see this flicker, and you're still getting black pictures, then you likely have again encountered failure of the CCD. Canon will fix this again for you for free. See the following:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/canon-digital-cameras-showing-black.html
But if no flicker or movement is seen down the center of the lens when you took the picture, then you likely have a stuck shutter. Canon will not fix this for free. But no matter, there are a couple simple fixes for this that don't require opening the camera: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

Canon powershot s21s problem


The symptoms are indicative of a CCD imager failure. But you can sometimes jog it back by trying the following:

If the above works, recommend taking a photo at least once a week in a well-lit area to keep it running.

hi try turning on and taking hold of the end of the lense and gently pulling and twisting you may hear a click but dont force it. then turn off and on again. then you may want to try


Press Menu button
togle across from REC Mode to setup
togle down thrice from camera to setup 1
togle across into sub menu
togle down from four times to Initialize
togle across again to the sub-menu
togle up from cancel to OK
press center button to accept the OK choice
Screen changes and so press okay again
It should restart the camera
Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen
togle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function.
If it is still not working do not worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is generally a software error message and not a hardware malfunction.
If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.

Cant take a picture


This is a common problem with this camera and it needs to be sent back to Fuji for repair.I've been through it three times and then they replaced the A350 with an A400 and now I'm having the same problems with the A400.
They want to swap it with a E500.
Both of these replacements are less of a camera then the A350.
If they won't repair it under warranty I suggest you stay away from Fuji cameras in the future,I know I will never buy one again

Sony Cybershot DSC-W100 LCD viewer


do you guys have a grainy display, that makes it look like there are less color variations?

for example, if you take a picture of something that varies in color from one side of it to the other, with an infinite variation in one color to the next; do the colors separate into grainy spotches, as if it lost some color display capabilities? mine did this, if i took a picture of something that had different hues of one color, they would all flow together into one splotch, and upload fine.

so i sent it in and they said they "reconnected the lens-flex" among other routine things. problem fixed.

but then i sent it in again and they said they did the same thing, but the problem this time around was my capture-mode dial was glitching, the display was FINE. sadly they didn't do jack to fix the dial it and it still screws up. it will switch back and forth from adjacent modes without me turning it.

i'm happy with this camera but its a pain sometimes. if you guys have warranties send your units in ASAP to get it fixed for freeeeeee.

best of luck, i can't suggest anything beyond that.
