20 Most Recent Epson PhotoPC 800 Digital Camera Questions & Answers


I'm afraid that it sounds like a fatal fault. I had one many years ago and enjoyed using it immensely. I seem to be saying this to a lot of people at the moment, but I think it's time for a new camera. I doubt that epson have any spares left to fix it for you. Sometimes they can be picked up on eBay for a song.

Have you tried a new SD card? That would be my first option.

Put 2 batteries in flashlight and ran completely dead. Charged them in 1hr. 50min. Pulled plug per directions for first time charge and plugged back in. Light went out in about 10 - 15 min. Plugged in third time with same results. Is this normal. Haven't tried them in camera yet.

Red lines are caused by glare. Avoid photographing shiny surfaces that reflect excessive amounts of light into your lens.

PhotoPC 800 captures images in 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). Your pictures will not display maximum image quality if your monitor or computer's video controller doesn't support this color depth. You may need to upgrade your system to achieve the best possible image quality. If your pictures look better on the screen than when you print them out, you may need to upgrade your printer. An EPSON Stylus ink jet printer, for example, provides excellent image quality. If you used drag and drop to insert your pictures, they may appear grainy. Try importing them into your documents instead.

If you're using the forced flash setting, it may be too bright. Try setting the flash to Auto. If you're facing a bright light source, you may need to shoot your picture from a different angle. Use Image Expert to adjust the picture's brightness, as described on page 9-4. Set user mode to Manual and adjust the camera's exposure setting.

ake sure your subject is within the camera's range. You should be at least 20 inches away to take a picture without the flash, and 20 inches to 8 feet away to take a picture with the flash. You can take a picture as close as 8 inches in macro mode. When you take macro close-ups, make sure you have adequate lighting (with the flash disabled). Using a tripod will help you capture sharp pictures. Make sure you hold the camera steady after you press the shutter button (until the red light starts to flash), and your subject isn't moving. If you are shaking the camera when you lock the focus, a warning icon appears in the right corner of the LCD. If you want to photograph a moving subject, you can change the shutter speed while the camera is connected to your computer. Try increasing the shutter speed. See Chapter 4 for more information about how to change the shutter speed from the LCD menus. Make sure your flash is not set to flash off. When you focus on a nearby object, your picture's background may appear blurry. Try changing your focus.

Yes, the use of a flash memory card will not affect the system. All images taken and stored on the flash card will be IAS-enabled ("Epson protected") subject to verification in the same manner as images stored on the internal memory of the camera.

If your system has less than 32MB RAM, the transfer speed may be slow. Try using virtual memory. See your computer documentation or system help for more information. Check the port setting in your Windows Control panel. You may need to set your port to a faster speed. See your Windows documentation or help system for more information. If you're transferring pictures to an application through EPSON Photo!3 and you use the PhotoEnhance feature, the transfer will take longer. Try transferring without PhotoEnhance.

Make sure you look straight through the viewfinder. Keep in mind that the area visible through the viewfinder is slightly smaller than the area captured in the photo. If you're taking a close-up or macro mode picture, turn the camera dial to the LCD mode so that you can use your LCD screen to preview your picture.

Yes. While opening files within the Epson Image Verification module, merely highlight the group of images to be verified, then verify as usual. All of the highlighted images will be verified at once.

When you take pictures under certain artificial lighting conditions, the colors may be slightly distorted. You can use your Image Expert software to adjust the colors, as described on page 9-3.

Although the photos are saved as .JPG, is there an issue with the physical size of them ? Perchance, should the loaded image exceed the size of the paper loaded, the printer may not be able to print it.
