Were the 2 problem images taken on your phone?

Can you view other images ok?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Pete, there are multiple images all with the words "thumbnail is displayed"..this obviously appears while in the playback function. photo images behind are blurry. All photos were taken with the camera, and it looks like all images on the chip are affected. Rich

Pete, are you still working on this? I see I have been billed for 26.00, but the problem has not been resolved.
Expert:  Pete replied 3 months ago.

Sorry for the delay Rich, I've been looking into this for you.

Can you try viewing the images on a computer and let me know if they appear in full resolution ok there?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Well, Pete or whomever got this request, I am still waiting. I answered your last question....the chip reads fine on the computer, it is only in the camera when I am reviewing photos that I get the "thumbnail is displayed" print over the photos.what next?
Expert:  Pete replied 3 months ago.

Hi Rich, not sure why your reply didn't come through.

If the images are ok on the computer then the files are good, but the camera is unable to read them.

You will need to try a factory reset on the camera with the card removed:

  1. Press [MENU/SET] button.
  2. Press < / > button to select “Setup” menu and then press [MENU/SET] button.
  3. select “Reset” and then press [MENU/SET] button.
  4. When a message appears select “Yes” and then press[MENU/SET] button.
