Answer: Satellite L500 - Windows 7 photo viewer is not working

How are you opening the picture? From the folder directly?

Did you try clicking on the Arrow buttons?

Is there more than one image in the folder?

I'm posting this for a friend, this is what his problem is, ( My Toshiba Satellite with Windows 7 all of a sudden quit loading any images I have on it with Windows Photo Viewer, even when I right click on any picture and use Open With from the menu. I have not installed any new software.) I don't have 7 so I told him I'd ask here, any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

O.k. I had a problem a week ago when I managed to download a bunch of JUNK that came with something I wanted. The icons on my desktop would not open. Got that fixed. Now I go to open a .png and the Photo viewer will not open ...Just the message " COM Surrogate not working". I really don't even like the Photo Viewer as it will open something but I can't copy the graphic and get it out of the program.

Can this program be reinstalled? If so, and it works again will it be possible to copy and paste it into another program or onto my desktop?

This is a large order folks....
Thanks for any and all help...

Hello all,

my C650 is a brand new purchase and so far I haven't been able to view any photos; on a memory stick, in "My Pictures" or in any form using the Windows Photo Viewer. Once I double click on the picture icon, the image enlarges to full screen and freezes whilst "loading" is displayed.

At this point, I can't even end the process using the windows task manager. I'm only a student and quite inexperienced with the workings of computers, so any help will be greatly appreciated!

Answer:Satellite C650 - Windows Photo Viewer freezes every time in use

Please don?t understand me wrong but best option for you will be to ask some friend of you how it works and how to handle with different picture formats and different applications.
I mean who knows which photos do you have, which format, which capacity and so on.

With standard jpg format there should not be any problem. For instance, in windows explorer you can find folder ?Public pictures? with some sample pictures. Can you open these pictures?

Hello :

I have connected my Finepix AX300 camera to my computer via USB port.

My ASUS computer (with Windows 7 Home Premium) is recognizing the pictures via Windows Photo Viewer - I can bring up on screen my photos. However, when I clicked on 'File' I found that all the features (except delete and exit') were grayed out : when I clicked on 'copy' for example, nothing happened.

I also tried bringing up the photos with Irfanview, but again ran into a roadblock : I could see the primary folder for my Finepix AX300 camera, but was unable to access the subfolders containing the pictures.

Can anyone help me get access to my pictures with a view to copying and printing them?

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Ahh, back again for more computer troubles. Apologies if this is in the wrong thread.

So, I'm really confused as to how three things have suddenly stopped working out of the blue. My tablet was working perfectly fine earlier, until I restarted my computer. The driver automatically crashes after start up, even after updating the driver. I have also noticed that Windows Photo Viewer and Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 also crash as soon as they're started up.

Any idea how I can fix these sudden problems? It's really frustrating that I can't draw, open photos, OR use Photoshop all of a sudden. Nothing was changed as far as I know for them to stop working.

Answer:Wireless not working in toshiba satellite l500 in windows 7

For a start, turn off CAPS LOCK - it's considered to be shouting & many will ignore you.Did the laptop come with Windows 7 or have you installed it later? Are you sure there are drivers available for the wireless card - check the manufacturer's website if necessary. Some Toshiba laptops have a separate wireless switch on the front edge - if it's there make sure it is in the 'on' position. The usual key combination, as far as I recall, is Fn and F8 pressed at the same time (not F8 on its own) - there should be an LED that lights up on the front edge of the laptop when the wireless adapter is on."I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..."

my choices? how do I find them, why are they not available on my photo viewer print option? I am working on an asus laptop, I think it is an 8.1 operateing system. But,,, I also have the same problem with my other laptops and desk top  programs. It will

Hey guys,

I've been facing problems lately. It seems that after few Windows 8.1 updates, my Photo Viewer has stopped working. I'm not sure what's up but it says "Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because either Photo Viewer doesn't support this file format, or you don't have the latest updates to Photo Viewer."

Here's a screenshot. I've set the red arrow as an example of two PNG files, one works fine while the other seems to be corrupted. I am not exactly sure what to do, it seems that saving images as PNG in Paint works just fine, but not when downloading files from the internet. And yes, Photo Viewer is set as default.

I've also run sfc/scannow but it says it did detect corrupted files but couldn't fix them.

In the Windows Update I can see lots of failed attempts to install/update some files, and I'm not sure if because of that, Photo Viewer doesn't work. One thing I also noticed that in Properties, the Photo Viewer icon is broken (not the usual one as always)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I am trying to find a slideshow that works on Windows 10, with no luck.

First I tried the new Windows 10 photo viewer. Clicking slideshow on this app works, but only for a single photo. Clicking on any logical key, like the arrow keys or space bar or mouse just ends the slideshow. I would expect you could enter the slideshow and then key through all your photos.

Giving up on that, I launched the old Windows Photo Viewer. Launching slideshow in this trusty old program made all my photos appear the wrong size. They were too big and the bottom of the photo went off the screen so that I was only seeing about 80% of the photo.

Please help me fix one or both of these issues please!

Recently got a Satellite L500-1DT for my Mum who's learning to use a computer for the first time and everything works apart from the built in webcam, of which was a big part of the decision in buying it.

The blue light comes on and it records sound but not any images. It also doesn't take the photo shot either, and in both cases just shows the cloudy sunset image that appears to be a defualt shot on the program. I've tried troubleshooting for her but there's nothing in the help guide that tells you how to fix it if it's not working.
The software was already preloaded when it was bought (we got it online) and I don't want to uninstall it as I don't think we have a disc.

Can anyone help?

Answer:Webcam is not working on Satellite L500-1DT

Hi buddy!

I?m not quite sure but in my opinion you should try to reinstall the webcam driver. Just check the Toshiba page for an update:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

But before you install the newest version, remove the old one first and restart the notebook.

Regarding the disk that you mean, as far as I know Toshiba notebook will not delivered with ?recovery disk?. That means you have to create it yourself using Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator. This disk contains an image about ?factory settings?. This is the same version as you have started the notebook the first time.

By the way: Normally after the first start you should get a message like this. Can you confirm this?

+Important INFORMATION+

+your system is equipped with hard disk recovery system. if you need to repair+
+your computer by restoring it to original factory state, you can do it directly+
+from harddisk (press F8 when you boot your computer, choose "Repair your computer"+

Good Morning,

I noticed that my Satellite L500-19X's hard disk was on it's way out so I have bought a replacement. I used the tool on the machine to create 2 restore DVD's to re-install the system.

The restore seems to run ok, working through both disks etc. It finishes, asks me to remove the media and the machine reboots.

The Windows 7 startup begins, but get's to "Setup is applying system settings" and I get a message stating "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer's hardware."

Does anyone have any ideas? I've run the restore a couple of times with the same result. I'm rather surprised that the restore CD's are essentially useless.

Answer:Satellite L500-19x - Restore disks not working

Is this first time that you have used recovery discs?
If your old disc still works somehow try to reinstall OS using HDD recovery procedure - [http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD9102IR0000R01.htm] - just to see if the same will happen again.

It is not easy to say what is wrong there but maybe by disc creation some bits were not saved on the right place. Who knows? ?:|

Answer:Toshiba satellite L500 not working, No disply

If you still get lights on the edge of the laptop & you can hear the fan spinning and harddisk clicking a bit but nothing at all is appearing on the display then it's either the screen or the power inverter that have gone. Either way it's not really something you can do yourself, take it to a technician to sort out. If you are not getting any lights, fan or clicking sound then it is a power issue - the LED doesn't necessarily mean that the power supply is ok.

I have tried disabling the drivers and completely removing them and turning off the computer, waiting 15mins and then turning back on but I keep getting "device malfunctioned" messages. I am going nuts trying to sort this as it has rendered my laptop almost useless to me. Anyone that could help I'd be eternally grateful!!

I suspect the only hope left would be reinstalling windows but my CD is scratched so can't even do that.

Answer:USB replacment board not working on Satellite L500-1XC

Hi

I don?t see many options here:
Either the USB board is compatible and would work properly or its not compatible or faulty and it will not work as it should.

The USB drivers are part of the system and cannot be installed separately.
You need to install the windows to check how the USB board would work...,

The HDMI output on my Satellite L500 seems to have stopped working in the past few months.
I've tried different cables but it is still not working.

Any ideas?

Answer:HDMI output not working on my Satellite L500

When you press FN+F5 key combination while notebook is not connected with HDMI cable, you will see one option (LCD) only. When you connect HDMI cable can you see other additional options like LCD, LCD+HDMI, HDMI and so on?

Please be also sure that right HDMI port on your TV is enabled.

By the way: which OS do you use?

Front volume control does not work. Volume is set to max and can only be controlled by mouse and slider control.
Can anyone help?

Answer:Re: Satellite L500 iCQ Rotary Volume Control is not working

To be honest I don't think anyone will be able to help you with this.
As far as I know this is not mechanical volume control as used on old notebook models but electronically part controlled by software so only thing you can do is to test the functionality with ?factory settings? and see if the problem will be the same.

What else you can do? I don't know. Maybe BIOS update but I really don't think this will help.

Do you use original preinstalled OS you got with your notebook?
Have you made some changes or anything that can have negative influence to this?
Since when you have noticed this strange behaviour?

Hey guys basically I reinstalled windows 7 ultimate 32 bit onto my laptop and my function (FN) key stopped working so I installed TVAP and flash card support and a few others from the Toshiba website but here?s my problem...

When I press FN nothing shows up on the top of the screen like it used to but I can use F6/F7 to change the brightness F5 to change the display ect all still work bar F8 therefore I cant turn my wireless on which is a real pain.

Any help would be very muchly appreciated,

You have reinstalled Win7 using original Toshiba recovery image?

Generally speaking all you can do now is to reinstall TVAP or flash cards support utility.
Have you tried to restart flash cards? Do this and press FN button several times.

Some of my drivers won't install givin message 'DMIcheck application has stopped working' or similar message for pInfo application...

Same Windows 7 64bit installation on another laptop didn't have any problems like that.

How do I solve this?

laptop model is L500 (short model no. PLJSHE)

Answer:Satellite L500 - DMIcheck application has stopped working

Hey,

For me it sounds like that the DMI information is missing and so you get this error message...
Are you using the drivers from Toshiba directly?

Usually the DMI information is missing if the mainboard was exchanged and the technicians have forgotten to re-write this information.
In this case contact the guys again and they will do this for you! :)

Hi,

About 2 weeks I have a new L500-19E with Windows 7 and it worked fine. But since a few days I have trouble with my microphone, no matter if I use the internal or an external headset/mic. The issue is that it seem to work for a few seconds only, e.g. trying a call via skype, teamspeak etc. but people only hear my hello and a few more words, then they only hear me very quite. The settings all seem to be fine and I already downloaded/installed the newest realtek drivers but nothing helps.

Does anyone has an idea what the issue can be and how to fix?

Thanks
stammann

Answer:Satellite L500-19E - Microphone stops working after few words

Hi

Really strange, stammann. Have you also tried to update the webcam driver? I ask this because the microphone is a part of the webcam so you should also update this driver. Just check the Toshiba page for an update:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads > Download Drivers

Have you also activated Microphone boost? You can check this in Windows sound settings.

Answer:My Toshiba Satellite l500 cooling fan has stopped working

I would purchase a can of compressed air or use an air compressor (with a light gentle nozzle) and blow the dust out of the inside. If you have a failed cooling fan, then it will need to be repaired or replaced. That model I think is rather old, it may not be worth it to repair.

Hello,

I replaced the original realtek wireless card with an Intel 6230 but it is not working.
After power on the wireless control led on the front remains blank.

In windows ( 7 professional 32bit) the drivers install fine, but said:
"radio hw switch is off"

fn+f8 not working, in bios wireless com sw is enabled.

The card is fully working in another laptop (samsung r528 (same chipset))

Is there any solutin, or will there be a BIOS update for it?

Answer:Satellite L500 (PSLJTE) - Intel Centrino Advanced n 6230 not working.

Sounds like the notebook is not compatible with the radio switch in the 6230, and the additional Bluetooth feature may also be causing an issue.

I doubt support would be added for Wifi cards not supplied from the factory so you may need to use an earlier Intel card such as the 5100 or one of the other cards used in the PSLJTE range.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L500 PSLS0A-019002 with Windows 7 Home Premium pre-installed that I received two months ago as a gift.

Apart from disliking some the quirky and useless (to me) Windows Vista / 7 features, as the desktop is loading I get the error message "Toshiba Service Station has stopped working" which proceeds to find a solution, but apparently never finds one because this condition repeats itself every time I boot.

On another thread in these Toshiba forums, someone suggested downloading the independent utility called Toshiba Service Station and reinstalling it. I do not see such utility listed on the downloads page for my Toshiba model. Since I don't even know what the Toshiba Service Station does (unless it goes by another name - Toshiba Bulletin Board perhaps?), I have no idea what is causing the error or how to correct it.

Does anyone have a more precise solution?

Answer:Toshiba Service Station has stopped working - Satellite L500 PSLS0A

Hi,

Service Station is not currently active in Australia, so you can simply uninstall it.

Anyone have any clue why all image files show up tinted sepia in windows photo viewer (right side of pic). I included the same file open in MSPaint on the left, and the actual game in the background to compare.

I thought at one point disabling my background wallpaper caused images to show normally in win Photo viewer, but I guess I was wrong. I did change something once to make them appear correctly (and with a white instead of tan background in photo viewer) but I can't remember what!

This sector of TSG I think is the nearest to what I'm trying to find out about. I am using Windows 8.1 and my question is, "Is Windows Photo Viewer only available to view photo's when a device is connected".
I have a load of photo's taken on my mobile which now I can only view on WPV when the mobile's connected. I have tried to locate it to view images but without a hit. I know its there some where because when I go down the list of program files on OS. (C) drive, it is there but I don't know how to access it unless the mobile is connected via usb. So my second question is, "Where and how, if possible can I locate it to bring up to the screen".

Just to let you know your tip for making the photo viewer app work in 10 has worked nearly perfectly: but i did discover one small issue and i was hoping you'd know what causes it, and that you could post it and email it to me.

when I open the viewer, I cannot scroll beyond the last photo (returning to the first photo in the directory) Also, when I open any photo after the first one, I cannot scroll backward to the first one. for example, if i have 10 pictures and i open picture 5, i cannot loop back to pictures 1 2 3 or 4. if i open picture 1 i can scroll forward to picture 10, and back to picture 1, but if i open picture 10, i can only see picture 10. i cannot carousel around the photos in that directory. it seems to be linear and not looping.

I hope that this is an easy fix. We are going to 10 at my jobsite and so far the photo store had wreaked havoc on us. we have since disabled the store, but that disables all store related apps and functions, which defaults pictures to MSPAINT. So, i was hoping to get back to the windows 7 photo viewer and happened upon your advice (thank you), and im hoping for just one more tweak to make it perfect.

I want to DISABLE windows photo viewer.
I have already associated the picture types to programs I use and they come up fine.  When I print, the photo viewer comes up and am FORCED to print from that program.  The problem is, that it is not working - the colors are inverted and incorrect. 
All attempts to fix them in color management have failed. 

Answer:Disable Photo Viewer in Windows 7

Hi,
 
Thanks for the post!
 
I suggest you change the default program for that types of picture.
 
Click Start - input default programs in search bar -
 set your default programs – Windows Photo Viewer – Choose defaults for this program, do not select the type that you want to print.
 
If it doesn’t work, please try to remove the preview by modifying the registry. Please backup the registry before you modify it.
 
Click Stat – input Regedit in search bar, navigate to 
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/SystemFileAssociations/image/ShellEx/ContexMenuHandles
Then delete the key ShellImagePreview.
 
Regards,
Miya

Hello. I am experiencing a problem with this COM Surrogate while viewing some (!) of my pictures. I tried to search for the solutions through different forums, but none helps me with that. Windows Photo Viewer works fine with the photos that were already for quite a long time on, but newer, downloaded or created via paint - it seems this doesn't work properly there. It works really slow and 95% chances are that it will freeze eventually. The strange thing is that I restored my system on 5-6 days back, and after it has done its restoration, I checked all the photos that were having trouble to be opened. They worked fine .. until the following day though.. I did not install any update and started to check, whether it works ok or not.

Solutions:
Delete adobe InDesign, Version Cue and OnLocation - failed. (CS5 and had no Version Cue.. could not find it there).
Update KIS with certain patch - is not for me. I am using ESETNod32.
System restore - failed as well (but i ll try once more).
Have no Nero or DivX - installed.
turning off Data Execution Prevention on dllhost - haven't tried yet, but I read it makes the security or protection at some point less effective.. would like to avoid doing this then..

I am running W7...

Answer:Windows Photo Viewer - COM Surrogate

Check Reliability Monitor - see what installed on your system prior to the problems starting -
START | type perfmon /rel

It's known that the Photo viewer in explorer of W7 is extremely slow with large files.
It takes forever since it time and again crawls trough the files.
The Firestone Viewer for instance is much faster.

However, if you like to upload to Photobucket, you are directed to that silly Windows routine that runs like an old snail.

Is there a way to speed up that proces?
Found somewhere the option to prevent the cache from being cleared.
But it won't work with conflicting permissions. The system may clear things and the user account may not?

(By the way, I haven't created any monitor profiles)

Answer:Windows Photo Viewer very slow

Even of you havent created any monitor profiles... its good to check if the color management Device profile is set to the system default (sRGB IEC61966-2.1)..

do you have printers installed. ??? what color profile are they using....??

if you are trying to view RAW camera images... try to update photo viewer with the RAW support....

I have been using Windows Vista Photo Viewer on my laptop.

I am now using a Windows 7 laptop and the photo viewer is different.

The feature that I lost and I liked was the Red Eye Correction Tool.
I could go thur hundreds on photos on the SD card and very quickly fix and save the red eye problem.
Now I have to use Irfanview or another photo editor to fix red eye. Much slower and another step.

My question is:

Does anyone know if I can copy the Vista version of photo viewer to my Windows 7 or XP Computers ??
And if so how is it done ??

Thanks in advance.

Alright, seeing as I've been combing the internet trying every solution in an attempt to fix this problem, I thought maybe someone here might be able to help.

Earlier today, for some reason, Windows Photo Viewer decided to stop working. I say decided because it was working fine, opening images without any issues, before it suddenly and inexplicably decided to stop working. As such, I have since tried the following steps, none of which have worked:

1. Rebooted My PC
2. Reinstalled Windows Essentials 2012 since this is part of that now
3. Run both windows diagnostic tools from their support webpages on this issue, both of which said that the problem was fixed, when it has not been fixed. Both also said they "fixed" the problem by fixing the database, even though it still isn't working.
4. I manually went into the "appdata/local/microsoft/windows live photo gallery" directory and removed the file that said Oldpicture.pd4, as it said that I should to do this manually, however I found no replacement file that I should rename anywhere else, so I don't exactly know where I was supposed to get that based on the instructions provided.

I am now thoroughly stumped as to what I am supposed to to fix this issue. Any and all help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Windows Photo Viewer Will Not Open

Windows Photo Viewer is part of Windows 7; I'm not sure where you got the idea that Windows Essentials 2012 is now part of it. I do not have Windows Live Essentials 2012 installed. (ah, Photo Gallery is not the same as photo viewer).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/photo-gallery
that requires Silverlight to work.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/photo-gallery

Click on the orb/start program button and select All programs then Default Programs.
When you click Set your default programs in the right pane of the window that pops up, do you see Windows Photo Viewer in the left pane?

When you click on it, you have 2 options: set this program as default or choose defaults for this program. (With the 2nd entry, you can select it to open certain extensions but not others).

If it truly has disappeared from your computer, run sfc /scannow to put it back where it belongs.

How can I get DNG files to open with Windows Photo Viewer?

Answer:DNG Files in Windows Photo Viewer

You might want to read this (older) article that goes up through Windows 7, and hope it applies to 8 and 10 as well: How to view DNG thumbnails in Windows. On the other hand, you might want to grab a DNG capable codec instead. Here's one from Adobe that may do just want you want it to in Windows Photo Viewer: Adobe DNG Codec.HTH,

is it possible to limit windows photo viewer to just one instance? eg. if i'm browsing a pic collection and click on a photo, it automatically opens in win photo viewer. great! but if i click another, it opens ANOTHER photo viewer window - whereas i'd prefer to have it simply replace the original picture in the first opened windows photo viewer.... there are times when i've found myself with upwards of 20 open instances of photo viewer... leslie

Hi UshereI'm not aware of any way to do that with the Photo Viewer.If you are viewing a picture in a folder that contains multiple pictures, you can scan through all of the pictures in that folder by using the right/left Arrow Keys or by clicking the right/left buttons at the bottom of the screen.Hope this helps.Thank You for testing Windows 7
