When I turn my camera on to view pictures, the red light on the camera in the bottom right corner stays on and I'm not able to view my pictures on my memory card. Can you help me identify the problem?


If one card works and the other doesn't then it sounds like you have a defective SD card. Nothing you can do about this but buy another one and toss it.

This is why you should backup all your photos off the camera and onto permanent storage media.

I have a nikon coolpix s60 and when i go to view the pictures, the screen turns black and i cant turn the camera off unless i pull the battery


What name brand memory card do you use? I recently discovered myself that Nikon only supports SanDisk, Toshiba, Panasonic and Lexar. Try taking out the memory card and take pictures without the memory card inside the camera. If you can view the picture saved onto the camera memory then you will know that all you need is a new memory card, with one of the above mentioned name brands. Hope this helps.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my...


Fuzzy pictures are most often caused by not holding the camera steady enough it's the number one problem with shooting "Live View". It's not the camera nor the memory card it's the person that's taking the picture. Sorry if that was to blunt. Now saying that not all the pictures will be blurry if you are shooting in full auto the camera is correcting for different scenes and lighting conditions so some will have a faster shutter then others so faster shutter speed will produce less blurry pictures.

Okay the memory card thing you should never swap memory card between cameras unless you format them first. Formatting wold remove all the pictures so what you did was really not good, I can get into a whole lot of issues why not but to keep this short It's not a good idea to swap card.

Transferring pictures from the camera to the computer requires having the camera software installed on the computer first. There are different sequences or flow of connectivity between camera makes one thing for sure is you don't "just unplug it" that is a sure fire way of corrupting the memory card.

With the camera turned off . The proper transfer sequence for your camera will be listed in the owners manual but, normally you connect the cable (if you connected a cable between it was the right cable) to the computer USB port not a hub or a keyboard. Then to the camera digital out put which looks like a mini USB port. Some will have you turn it on while others will have you press the "playback" button for about a second when it come on there will be a download screen appear on the computer, read your manual.

Okay after you have downloaded the pictures to the computer you need to format the memory card sound all complicated now but as you get onto it it's like breathing, you just do it.

My camera will turn on, then when screen is on for about 5 seconds, the screen turns off, and the red light beside the SIM card slot starts flashing.


Take out memory card form camera and turn it On, if camera stays On and shows normal view that means memory card is bad and causing problem.
Put new memory card in camera and take pictures.
Thanks.

Cannot access pics


Once you took pictures without a memory card, all pictures taken will automatically be saved on the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera.
When taking pictures with a memory card, all pictures are just saved on the memory card itself.
If you are seeing 100-757 on the LCD screen. It means that there are already 757 pictures taken from the first time you've used the camera.
It is possible that some of the pictures are in the internal memory and some are in the memory card.

STEPS to DOUBLE CHECK:
1) Remove memory card out of the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button
(lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the internal memory

2) Return memory card back in the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button (
lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the memory card itself

*** If you want to transfer pictures on the internal memory of the camera to your MEMORY CARD, you just have to follow the steps below:
- Make sure there is a memory card inside the camera
- Turn on camera
- Press on PLAY mode button to view pictures
- Press MENU/OK button
- Keep scrolling to the right until you see COPY TO CARD
- Select YES using the arrow keys
- Press MENU/OK to confirm
* When you've done these steps, all pictures from the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera will be copied to your MEMORY CARD but it depends on the space left on your memory card

** If still, you could not view the pictures, it's possible that the pictures are really gone when you have transferred the previous pictures to your computer.

** Once you have transferred pictures to your PC, and you have deleted those on your camera, the FILE NAME of the pictures will not start from 100-001 again unless you have reset the file name on the settings of your camera.

In example, i already have 256 pictures on my camera so the filename reads 100-256 for the last picture taken. And then i decided to transfer those 256 pictures to my PC and i deleted those immediately after being transferred. So, as i took another picture, FILENAME will start with 100-257 if i have not reset
the FILE NAME settings to 100-001.

Hope i've helped you enough.
