Sat, 13 Oct 2018 21:38:58 +0000

I own a Sony FDR-AX100E (E means european model). In USA this camera shoot in 24p, 30p and 60p. In Europe it shoot in 24p, 25p and 50p. The problem is that often I need to shoot in 30p. So, there is an hack to add the 30p? Or there is an hack to change the European firmware with the USA one? Thanks in advance for your suggests.

delete photos from Vivitar Mini Digital Camera

To delete photos from your Vivitar S126 camera: press the Mode button until you come to the "view"; press the "trash" button, then the "set" button 2 times. This will then give you the option of deleting one or all of the photos on your memory card.

Error Code C:31:40
Tue, 11 Sep 2018 17:09:04 +0000

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV740
Issue: Tape would not load, error C31:40
Rubber cylinder and spinning wheels seemed to be in place and moving fine.
Tried Sony's solution, soft and hard reset, different tape, no prevail.
Turned the camera with the bottom up, no tape, no battery.
While holding the camera in my right hand, I smacked six firm doubles on the bottom: PAM-PAM, PAM-PAM..., using my three middle finger, left hand.
Now tape is loading, no error.
Will check the internals again, not very comfortable smacking again.

E:62:10 on DSC-T9
Sun, 24 Jun 2018 22:59:58 +0000

Eleven & a half YEARS on and the same problem still happens. Sucks to be Sony. DSC WX300 E:60:10 image stabilisation abnormality. Turn off and turn on again. Which doesn't work.

Only difference after over a decade is that the fault makes the camera completely unusable. Stuck in the Turn off and turn on again loop. So worse really.

Read all this with some scepticism. Turned camera on, when lens came out removed battery with lens still out. Gave it a moderate tap on the palm of my hand. Did all four sides for good measure. Put the battery back in and the lens retracted. Turned it back on and the error had vanished. Zoom works. Image stabilisation works. It takes stills and movies. Sorted. Genuinely gobsmacked, both that the fix worked and that Sony have left a systemic fault unchecked for over a decade. Smells of planned obsolescence and consumerist capitalism. No wonder we have climate change.

Michael I had the same problem no tft lcd. I could take pictures & see them on the computer. I hooked up an external power supply & just kept playing with it, power on & off finally it just started working. Oh, lcd would flash on & immediately off when I would power on & off. I hope this helps.

Halina Keychain Camera Driver
Sun, 20 May 2018 02:29:44 +0000

Hey I just connected this camera to my PC and the driver wasn't detected so I tried to google for it and found this thread. Since nobody answered, I looked through my things and found the disc. I zipped it up along with an image of the disc. After extracting, you can burn it using IMGBurn, just select the .cue file. Haven't tested mounting it virtually but you can try if you'd like. It's 45mb but zipped to only ~3mb probably because they used some easily compressible dummy data when creating the disc (I've read that discs with extremely little amounts of data sometimes go unrecognized by the drive, so dummy data is necessary for helping your drive recognize the disc). FYI, I think the driver is only intended for Win 2000 or XP. I tried installing on Win 10 x64 and it's not working. I'll comment again if I figure out a way to get it working on Windows 10.

E:61:10 error message on DSC-T1
Thu, 26 Apr 2018 20:45:20 +0000

We had the error E61:10 while on holiday and lost the use of the camera. Very annoying. Thought we would have a look for a solution and found this post. Eldest son laughed his socks off (a real tech head) very sceptical but hubby and I decided to go for it anyway. Amazing. Problem seems to be solved. Wish I had spent a few minutes searching while on holiday.

How to get the FujiFilm Image-Scanner AS-1 Filmscan-it to work with Windows XP
Thu, 05 Apr 2018 19:45:11 +0000

Hi Heidi,

If you have already ran setup. Then the software is installed in Windows. You should be able to find it in Windows Programs. You should be able to push the "Windows" button or the "Windows" key (on your keyboard) to get to a list of software installed on your computer.

How to Download Photos to Computer from Vivitar Mini Digital Camera?
Thu, 22 Mar 2018 16:54:31 +0000

I agree with The Bergler: it seems that unfortunately Vivitar is no longer the GOOD manufacturer it was. I've received a Vivitar Binocular w/camera photo included (Vivitar 10x25 binocular digital camera) that came with a CD that's supposed (by the label) to include a Mac version of the "Vivitar Experience Image Manager". This was not the case. CD contained ONLY the Windows version! I want to download it from the Vivitar website, and a serial number is required. Neither the binocular, nor the box where it came from has ANY serial number for the product! Vivitar is now a real shame!
