I have an andoer 15" digital photo frame and now it will not activate the firmware.

I think you are confused. Firmware and Software are two very different things. Firmware is what happens BEFORE the Software loads. Normally, Firmware is never touched especially on a photo frame. Firmware loads automatically as soon as you switch it on. Errors like this are usually caused by the SD Card being too big for the device. Yes it can be read by a computer, but not by the photo frame firmware / software. Check the manual for the maximum size. It says here 32GB max

My Nikon Coolpix L320 takes a long time to turn on and while it is working the error normal watchdog time out appears. I have tried cleaning the battery contact

This camera is over 12 years old ans if it has not been in use daily all of its life will suffer from swollen electrolytic capacitors. These components are like small car batteries, if left unattended and unused for a long period of time, they start leaking. Both electrically and mechanically. Probaly time to replace it.

My fujifilm camera is showing a yellow camera symbol with a warning symbol

It is likely that at 14 years of age, the camera electronics has suffered during storage. Return it to a Fuji repair centre for service.

Jazz DV179 Digital Camcorder Camera. I need a manual please. It hasn't been used since 2013. I can't find any papers on it, I only only have the charger.

Question edited for clarity. Unfortunately there is no model online for that model. Don links the DV150 and that might be close enough. One site say is has it, but shows a Coby DV500. Are you sure the model letters and numbers are correct? There are many Jazz here, but not yours. ..

Nikon Coolpix A300. The center, circular selector button is wonky. I opened it and can push the interior buttons and it works fine. Is there a fix?

This is an excellent $900 point and shoot camera from the best maker in the business. It is worth taking it to a Nikon Service center and having the selector module replaced. Others have reported the same issue. Please click Helpful if it is, or Comment if you need further help? ..

How do you remove the battery from a Kodak Pixpro AZ528?

To remove the battery from your Kodak Pixpro AZ528 camera, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the camera and remove any cords or cables that are attached to it.
  2. Locate the battery compartment cover on the bottom of the camera. It is typically marked with a battery icon.
  3. Slide the battery compartment cover open. It may be held in place with a small latch or tab that you will need to release before you can open the cover.
  4. Carefully remove the battery from the battery compartment. It may be held in place by a small latch or spring. Be sure to grip the battery firmly to avoid dropping it.
  5. Close the battery compartment cover and make sure it is securely latched.
If you have any trouble removing the battery or if the battery compartment cover is stuck, you may want to consult the Kodak Pixpro AZ528 user manual for more detailed instructions.

Transferring Pictures.

If you have installed software from the supplied disc, remove it. Very often this software more of a hindrance than any use. Windows 2000 should recognise the camera when plugged in via the USB as a 'new' drive in my computer
