Maintenance and Troubleshooting our PhotoPC 700 camera is easy to take care of, and any problems you may have are easy to solve. This chapter includes the following sections: Caring for the camera and battery charger Solving camera problems Solving picture problems Caring for the Camera and Battery Charger Your PhotoPC 700 requires only basic care.
If necessary, clean the battery contacts with a dry cloth. If the LCD screen gets fingerprints or smudges on it, use a soft, damp cloth to lightly wipe the screen. Storing the Camera Keep the lens covered (power turned off) and store the camera in a carrying case or bag when you’re not using it.
You can’t take a picture with the camera. The flash may be recharging. Wait until the status light turns green, and try again. The camera may be full. Check the picture counter on the display panel. Erase some pictures (see Chapter 3), or transfer the pictures to your computer and then erase them (see Chapter 4).
Make sure your camera is turned on and the batteries have enough power. Check the serial port settings in your Image Expert or EPSON Photo!2 software. You may need to change the Port and Speed serial connection settings to Auto. If you’re using a Windows system and have trouble connecting to the COM port, check the computer’s...
Check the serial port settings in your Image Expert or EPSON Photo!2 software. You may need to change the Port and Speed serial connection settings to Auto. If you were able to use the camera with the computer previously and then changed or added other settings on your system, you may have a COM port conflict.
Windows documentation or help system for more information. If you’re transferring pictures to an application through the TWAIN interface or EPSON Photo!2 and you use the PhotoEnhance feature, the transfer will take longer. Try transferring without PhotoEnhance. You get an error message when you use the Image Expert Save to Floppy feature.
You get a TWAIN error message when you try to transfer ® ® images with Adobe Photoshop. If you’re using Windows 3.1, make sure you select TWAIN (not TWAIN_32) as your source. If you’re using Windows NT 4.0, you may need to upgrade your software to Photoshop 4.0.
PCMCIA drive, the camera can’t access the images. You can’t use this method to upload pictures to the camera. You have to use the EPSON Photo File Uploader to convert and upload your images. 12-8 Maintenance and Troubleshooting Solving Picture Problems If you’re not satisfied with some of the pictures you get from...
The colors in your picture don’t look right. 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 7-3. Your picture is blurry or out of focus. Make sure your subject is within the camera’s range.
If you’re using the macro mode to take a close-up photo, be sure to provide adequate lighting for your subject, since the camera’s smallest aperture setting (F8) is automatically selected in this mode. Your picture is too light (overexposed). If you’re using the forced flash setting, it may be too bright.
The area captured in the photo is different from what you saw in the viewfinder. 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.
NiMH batteries or a replacement NiMH Power Pak. To increase your camera’s picture storage capacity and add flexibility, you can use CompactFlash storage cards and PCMCIA adapters. EPSON recommends cards from the following manufacturers: Lexar Media, (800) 789-9418 SanDisk, (408) 542-0595 Simple Technology (800) 4-SIMPLE For information on using storage cards, see Chapter 10.
The AC adapter should be available where you bought your PhotoPC 700. You can also order it from EPSON Accessories at (800) 873-7766 (U.S.) or (800) 807-7766 (Canada). Accessory PhotoPC 700 AC Adapter NiMH Battery Pak (4 batteries) NiMH Power Pak (charger and 4 batteries)
Plug the AC adapter into an electrical outlet. Using an Optional Tripod You can use your PhotoPC 700 with any standard tripod. Follow these steps: Assemble and set up the tripod by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Make sure the tripod is well-balanced on a flat surface.
To attach the lens adapter, simply snap it onto the front of your camera. With the adapter in place, you’ll need to use the LCD screen to take pictures, rather than the viewfinder. Rotate the lens cover ring counterclockwise to turn on the camera before you attach a lens.
Then follow these steps to use a Tiffen wide-angle lens: Squeeze the two tabs on the sides of the lens. Insert the lens into the adapter on the front of the camera and release the tabs. Turn the lens clockwise, a quarter of the way around. When you’re finished using the lens, squeeze the two tabs and remove it from the adapter.
NOTE If necessary, you can use a neutral density filter, contrast enhancement filter, or close-up lens with a wide-angle lens. First screw the filter or close-up lens onto the adapter, then attach the wide-angle lens. However, the lens may not fully grip the filter, and you need to handle the camera and lenses carefully to prevent the lens from coming off accidently.
Note that images captured with the telephoto lens are vignetted at the corners, as shown in the example below. Using Image Expert, you can crop the dark corners out of your pictures if you want. NOTE As with the wide-angle lens, you can use a neutral density filter, contrast enhancement filter, or close-up lens with a telephoto lens.
