Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Digicamera model S820

To whom it may concern
I just bought the above model less than a week ago and i am trying to take a self picture using the 10second timer function.
on page 54 of the manual says you click the wee clockface button on the bottom right of the camera then press down the shutter button halfway to let the camera focus and while still pressing the button fully press it down and this will activate the camera to take the picture after 10seconds.
INSTEAD it is shutting the camera down and the zoom lens is retracted and the pic frame goes blank.
I trust you can assit me with this problem
Regards Mr R Love

My camera had a similar prob. Instead of pressing the shutter button half way just press it all the way down and see if that works.

Just bought the mixer and cant figure out how to get sound to the main speakers, i have the apms correctly hooked up and speakers also

Since you posted this question nearly 3 weeks ago, I expect you figured it out by now - in which case, please mark thread as "closed".
If you are still trying to figure it out, please reply with the following information:
1. Make and model of mixer
2. What you are using as a signal source (mic, instrument, etc.)
3. Make and model of your speakers (important if they are self-powered, or not)
We'll take it from there - but a couple pictures will answer a lot of questions in regard to gain structure, signal path routing, buss outs, etc.

Sled4668w tv scans channals but always shows 0 found hooked upto dish network

This Orion TV made by Sansui was bought by me two weeks ago. It didn't last a week. The sound was terrible, picture was great, and it wouldn't hook up to soundbar without hearing a long delay in sound (A/V or Digital output tried two). I contacted their customer support twice, they were awesome. Told me this model has know issues and said to just bring it back. I found another TV for same price ($399) and same size (46) but it's LCD not LED, better picture and great sound! It is Insignia don't remember the model #. Bought at Best Buy (their house brand).

Canon SD850 IS showing "unidentified image" after pic is taken

we have just experienced both of the above problems. We are using 2G SD card from Kingston. After about 400 pictures set to mdeium resolution we get many pictures with the ? mark unidentified image. I see that each image takes up about 2M of space but the image information is not stored so you can not open the file. Also other images have the shaded problem as above.

does anyone have any ideas about this. Is it the camera or the SD memory? We just bought the camera about 3 weeks ago and are now thinking of returning it

Lens cover doesn't open

Check out the Tech support Team at NIKON Don't fiddle with it your self - this is a very delicate mechanism At fours years old- it is likely that a new camera is the only remedy.
