Welcome to the forum

What are you using to download/view the photos?

Tried hard boot/re-installing sim card/ unsucsessfull in removing battery because of soldered connector to power supply. Newbe, going on limited cell phone procedures. Threw out last computer MS Vista/Dell under 6 ton frontloader because of glitches like this H E L P ! ! !

Without knowing any more than we know it seems your best solution may be a factory reset.

In settings there should be an entry called backup and reset. It will put you back to out-of-the-box conditions which means you need to have a copy of any of your media - docs, music, videos etc. either backed up to microSD, your computer or the cloud.
