In cold environments (winter outdoor, highlands), battery performance decreases extremely. We recommend keeping spare batteries in a warm place, such as the inside of a coat. (Batteries can recover their power when they warm up.) When taking the camera from a cold to a warm environment, place it in a sealed plastic bag to prevent condensation from forming. Allow the camera to come to room temperature before removing it from the bag.

When a photo is taken the image is over lit and whited out. Help!

If your camera suffered a hard impact or was smooshed by something it needs repair. Otherwise, here are a couple of suggestions before that;
- reset all features and settings to default settings. Your manual should guide you to do this.
Test camera with dark and light enviroments, as well as with and without flash.
If the problem still remains, try a reliable camera repair company. Teleplan Camera Repair will give you an immediate online quote and they also clean your camera as part of the repair.

My printer says it needs to get to room temp but has been saying this for 24hrs

I am not sure what enviroment you are in.
If you are in a cold building, yes this could be true.
Some machines have what they call a "Q", or a comptometer type of electical component built right in the cirucit board. This is a temperture type of componet that works in a certain range of enviroment tempertures. If the area is too cold, it will open up this computent and the machine will not work.
Garages, storage buildings, wearhouses are examples of these places where extreem cold conditions can occur.
If this is not the case in some machines, other causes may need to be explored.
A failed main board, software corruption-software may need to be reloaded by a technition and machine values be added correctly.

I have a Digital JVC Camcorder with mini DV with failure code...

That come on because of a humid condition or moisture on the head drum of the camcorder. This is usually cause by going fro a hot enviroment to a cold enviroment. This prevents tape damage or destruction as the tape will stick to the head as it spins. You can open the cassette compartment and use a hair dryer on a low setting for a couple of minutes to get rid of the moisture or just leav the cassette door open for about an hour or until the warning clears.

Loading to youtube with enviro camera

You tube accepts wide video file formats such as .wmv, .avi, .mov, .mpg transferred from most digital cameras. The problem you have, the video you upload might not from those video formats. So youtube may not recognize or upload it. What you really need is to convert your video to a format which can be uploaded to youtube like MPEG4 (recommended). Alive MP4 Converter program allows you to convert AVI files or whatever formats to MPEG4 which can be uploaded to youtube. Else, use another updated web browser to open youtube and upload it there.

Casio EX-S600

Try out your "Best Shot" modes and see if you have a high sensitivity mode on that model. It works great for low lit areas. Other than that there isn't any kind of "auto light" that I know of on that model.

Digital camera care

Use these camera care tips: • Store everything together in a case for easy transport. Use a good padded case and strap. Not only do cases protect the camera but, as with most of HP's digital camera cases, they often have built-in pockets for batteries and memory cards. • Use lens caps to protect lenses when you're not using your camera. No exceptions. • Clean your camera and lenses often with a soft cloth. The autofocus, exposure, and viewfinder windows need to be clean for correct operation. Your camera likes weather that’s not too hot and not too cold. Weatherproof your camera with these ideas: • Let your camera case kick back under a light-colored towel when you're under the hot sun. • Keep your camera warm under your coat when it's chilly outside. • Bad weather and stormy seas can make for inspiring photographs. But if you don't take precautions, you'll have a wet digital camera with sand in every crevice. To protect your camera from water, cover it with a plastic bag. Just make a hole for the lens to poke through and secure it with a rubber band. Voil?: a little rain jacket!
