Camera frequently locks out and have to remove batteries to restart

Since purchasing this S 1050 camera it frequently locks out for no apparent reason and then I have to remove the batteries to free the camera, I then have to press the on / off button to close it down then re start the camera by pressing the on button again. This is most frustrating .

Hello, reset in this case is not a solution. Maybe your lens is stuck. For further info please contact me at LIVE session. Best regards, Arpi

SOURCE: sony camera turning itself off...

You can't use regular alkaline batteries in this camera. Alkaline batteries only supply 1.5 volts. The camera uses 2 in series for a total of 3.0 volts from alkaline. However, the camera requires 4.2 volts to operate correctly. This camera has high power requirements, so you'll need high end lithium or nickel hydride batteries that can supply the higher voltage and current this camera requires. It's a power hog, and regular alkaline batteries are too weak to run it. The menus will work on alkaline, but once you try to turn the camera on in capture mode to take a shot, the current requirements to operate the camera motor, LCD, zoom, memory stick, etc, all it once is too great a draw for alkaline to handle. Either use the external power supply, or get Lithium batteries. Make sure the batteries you get are 2.4 volts and not 1.5 volts. Get the ones with the highest current rating you can find.

SOURCE: I get a Camera Error

There are numerous things that can cause a lens error, and none of them good. The camera is almost new and shouldn't be experiencing any of these messages. You should contact Sony support and see what can be done. Here is their support site:
If they can't help you resolve this, and won't honor any kind of warranty, the following site details things you can try to correct this problem:
There are tiny gears inside the lens assembly, and a focusing ring, and any speck of dirt or dust or lint can jam one up, causing a lens error. You can try to spray some compressed air ($4 at Walmart) inside the lens assembly, while it's extended, and hopefully free it up.
Hopefully Sony will help you out, and allow an exchange.

What batteries can i use in the samsung af zoom 1050

You will be looking for a 123A battery that you will most likely find at a battery store, or many an electronics store like Best Buy. Or you can google your camera model and order the battery online.

I have a Olympus Stylus 1050 SW digital camera, How do I download photos to my 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 such as Picasa.

It worked for me.

Has lock card

To solve the problem, cycle the lock switch on the memory card and try again.

CAUTION Before adding or removing memory, make sure the processing or ready light is not blinking then turn the camera off and remove batteries.

GREAT HINTS Most cameras will reset to original settings if batteries are removed for at least one minute. Remove extra memory to eliminate this as a possible problem. Insert fully charged batteries and restart the camera.

Hello Kitty KT7009 camera won't charge!

It could be something more serious, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinsert them in the camera. This cleaning cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Camera functions are locked up

Looks like the camera doesn't go out of the post shooting preview. That could be a software problem. Try removing the camera's battery for 3 minutes to clear the memory.
