Playback Screens & Menus

Note: the GE E1486TW only outputs a slideshow when the A/V cable is plugged in, so we had to photograph the LCD for these screens captures

In playback mode, the last image taken is the first one that is displayed when you press the playback button. Just like in REC mode, the bottom right corner changes the amount of information that is shown on the screen. There are three different amounts of information that can be shown as well as a screen that shows just the image with no information.

Index mode allows you to quickly search through the images that you have captured. Pressing the wide zoom control brings up a screen of 4 thumbnails and pressing it again changes it to 9.


Pressing the zoom control towards the telephoto end allows you to zoom in on your images up to 8x. Once you have zoomed in, press and hold on the screen for 1 second and you will be able to drag the image around on the screen.

Playback Menu Options:
  • Protect - Protects an image from being deleted from the memory card
  • Delete - Removes an image from the memory card
  • DPOF - Sets the parameters for printing directly from the camera
  • Slideshow - Runs a slideshow of the images saved on the memory card

Movie playback gives you VCR or DVR-like controls that allow you to play, pause, return to beginning, and move frame by frame in either direction. While the video is playing, you can adjust the volume via the icon in the bottom right corner.
