20 Most Recent Polaroid PhotoMax Fun Flash 640 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Windows 2000 A new camera TWAIN driver (version 0.1) compatible with Windows 2000 is now available for download. The new TWAIN driver will allow photo transfer using most image viewing or editing programs that are TWAIN compatible. NOTE: In order for the version 0.1 driver to work correctly, the PhotoMAX software must also be compatible with Windows 2000. The PhotoMAX SE software originally included with the Fun! Flash 640 is not compatible with Windows 2000. If you use your camera and computer with the original PhotoMAX SE software, contact the Polaroid Parts Department for more information about purchasing a PhotoMAX software upgrade. Windows NT4 No TWAIN driver is available for use with Windows NT4.

Microsoft defines Kernel32 errors as follows: "The Kernel32.dll file is a 32-bit dynamic link library file that is found in Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Millenium Edition (Me). The Kernel32.dll file handles memory management, input/output operations, and interrupts. When you start Windows, Kernel32.dll is loaded into a protected memory space so that other programs do not take over that memory space. On occasion, you may receive an invalid page fault (IPF) error message. This error message occurs when a program tries to access the Kernel32.dll protected memory space. Occasionally, the error message is caused by one particular program, and other times the error message is provoked by multiple files and programs."

A 9-pin serial connection must be available on your computer to connect a PhotoMAX Fun! Flash 640 digital camera. This camera model does not have a USB driver, so a USB-to-serial adapter will not function properly.

The two green LEDs on the back of the camera indicate a number of camera conditions. If they are both blinking, the camera's memory is full and the camera will not take any more pictures.

# Try inserting a different CD to make sure your CD-ROM drive is working. If the CD-ROM drive cannot read any CD, contact your computer manufacturer -- it's possible that your CD-ROM drive is not working properly. # Make sure the PhotoMAX CD is clean, with no fingerprints, dirt, or smudges. If necessary, you can clean the CD with a lint-free cloth and warm water. Dry with a hairdryer on the cool setting. Make sure the CD-ROM is completely dry before attempting to load it again.

There are two basic ways to work around this situation: * Use a PS/2 mouse instead of a serial mouse. Using a PS/2 mouse will free up your serial port so that you can connect the camera to the computer. Check the computer's documentation to see if this type of mouse is available for your system. * Enable MouseKeys on your computer. MouseKeys allows you to use the numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer and to click, double-click and drag. After enabling MouseKeys, you can disconnect the serial mouse and connect the camera to the computer. Click Here to see an animated demonstration, or follow the instructions below. To enable MouseKeys: 1. From the Windows toolbar, select Start > Settings > Control Panels. 2. Double-click the Accessibility Options icon. 3. Select the Mouse tab. 4. Select Use MouseKeys and change settings, if desired. 5. Click OK.

When you turn on the Fun Flash! camera, the default resolution is 640 x 480, as indicated by the two stars displayed on the LCD panel. To change the resolution to 320 x 240, you need to turn the camera off and then press and hold the self-timer button while turning the camera back on. Release the self-timer button and the camera will be in the lower resolution mode (indicated by the single star on the LCD). Remember, the next time you turn on your Fun Flash! camera it will default back to the 640 x 480 setting.

Storing digital picture information to a CompactFlash card (as when a digital image is taken) is similar to storing data on the hard drive of a computer -- if the process is stopped or interrupted, the information stored is not complete and, therefore, "corrupts" the storage media. A computer will display a warning message indicating that the hard drive has errors, while a camera will display a message indicating the memory card is corrupted. The CompactFlash card corruption can be caused by: * Turning off the camera power before the photo information is completely stored on the card. * Removing the card before the photo information is completely stored on it. * Taking a second picture before the camera has finished storing the previous picture. * Camera batteries that are near the end of their life and need to be replaced. Once a CompactFlash card is corrupted, it can be used again only by performing a Format procedure. IMPORTANT! When a CompactFlash card is re-formatted, any pictures stored on it will be lost forever and cannot be recovered.

Certain computer hardware and software configurations conflict with PhotoMAX or PhotoImpression software. As a result, you may not be able to transfer 320 x 240 dpi photos from your Polaroid Fun! Flash 640 digital damera. This problem does not occur if you use the camera's default resolution of 640 x 480 dpi.
