    I took a picture with my camera a few minutes ago. It took the picture fine and I watched and waited for the "busy" light to turn off..but it didn't. The screen is frozen, the red eye reducer light is on as well as the busy light that goes on when processing a picture. I switch it off and nothing happens. It should automatically turn of after 10 sec. of not being used, but of course it doesn't.
    What should I do? Also, there are pics on there that are already saved. I don't want to lose those either.

    it might help if you tell us what kind of camera it is. what kind of memory it has?. you might want to try new batteries an see if that helps or charge the ones that are in it.

    Thanks for the reply. The batteries were new. But I took them out, put them back in, and now the camera is fine. :)

    That's exactly what I was going to suggest. Pretty much any camera I've had has hung at one time or another; I always turn the camera off (even if it doesn't know I did), pull the batteries out, wait some seconds, put them back in. Every time, the camera's come back to life.

    They're really just specialized computers these days. Guess sometimes they need to be rebooted :)
