Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

TASCO Trail Camera. Only used for 3 months, now the flash isn't operating. Hope this isn't a throw away.


Answers :

The TASCO flash is driven by a capacitor and it has burned out.\012Mine worked 6 weeks before it happened. Problem is figuring what capacitance it is as it is not labelled with any identifying numbers.

I received the HP CB350 digital camera for Christmas and I havn't been able to use it! The flash does not work. I've tried reading the manual, new batteries, and changing the flash to all the time and nothing works. When I take a picture, the flash makes a crackling noise, but does not flash. I'm about to throw the camera away cause it's junk with no flash. Please help.

Overexposure I have owned my Fujifilm S5000 for about 2 1/2 years. It has worked perfectly until the last couple of months. I have always used the flash when the camera told me to. Recently, the camera has been overexposing inside pictures when I use the flash. If I don't use the flash, it underexposes the picture. Any suggestions...ideas? I have moved fairly recently and can't find my manual anywhere. Thanks, Laurie


The top of your cam should have a square button with a positive and negative sign. (I have the S5200, so it shouldn't be that different.) Hold that button down while pushing the button for "Macro" (the one with the little flower. On your LCD the n ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Battery Have had my Nikon for about 3 years, no problems till couple months ago. Used camera for vacation then did not use it for about a month. Battery was fully charged when put away. Got it out and battery was dead. Charged battery, put it in the camera and shows only 1/3 charged? Put it back on the charger, checked the connections, retried in camera, same thing.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 works perfectly except that the flash suddenly stopped working and yes, i have flash on, I have tried everything. The camera has been in occasional (reliable) use for about 18 months - could the flash device be used up or what? btw I have screened through many "1 solution" pages here and have not found ANY solution on any of them, just lots and lots of ads.

Power problem at first, my problem was the error 99 and i waited a couple of months not repairing it and now i have this problem which is when i use my camera it's working fine with no-flash mode and then when i use it again after a while ( say couple of hours) the camera doesnt turn on and i need to charge the battery again!! PS:i have bought my camera before 11 months!! please help.


Per the symptoms that you describe, it seems that one of the two internal printed board circuit parts have a defective component that is draining out the battery current.\015\012\015\012If you have only 11 months with it, I strongly recom ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.


The 8025 is a very cheap camera....I hope you didn't pay more than $15 at the pawn shop. Your camera has a blown flash tube. The camera could have been dropped in water by the previous owner. You could have bought one at Walmart that would have at le ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera

White balance I have an ongoing problem with all my images having a stronge red / yellow color cast to them. It does not matter if I'm in the daylight or shooting under flouresent lights. When I use my flash the area directly in front of the flash is usually ok, but where the flash falls off, the immediate area has that color cast to it. Example: If I take a picture of the front fender, of a vehicle from six feet away, the fender is usually ok but the chrome wheel, tire and pavement have the red

The buttons on my 4 month old Nikon S8000 don't work. I can take a photo but can't zoom in, I can't view the photos, can't record a video, can't turn on the flash (or any of the other setting on the rotating wheel), can't go to menu, scene selector or delete a photo (which doesn't matter as I can't view the photos anyway!). The shop I bought it from is 130 miles away as I've moved away and no other camera shops are near here, so if possible I'd like to solve this without having it sent away! Tha

Grainy Pictures I have had my olympus stylus 710 for about 6 months and have been noticing more and more grainy pictures once developed. They are usually when taken indoors. It doesn't look grainy on the LCD screen but when they are developed it is very grainy. This even happens when the flash is used. Any suggestions? Is there a setting I can change for higher quality pictures? I have a gig memory so I don't care if I am going to be using a lot of space. Got 7.1 megapixels and want to use

Canon 1400 IS: When I take a picture using flash of a close up object, a shadow is cast on the lower right corner of the picture. For pictures that are not taken close up with flash, or taken from further away and just zoomed in to the object, does not have this issue. Do you know what could be causing this shadow issue?


It's most likely the shadow of the lens. The flash is above and to the left of the lens, so the shadow of the lens will be to the right and below. ... Digital Cameras

Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer. ... Casio Digital Cameras

I bought a xlt about 2 months ago an ive only had it out for about 3 weeks and the batteries went dead and now the only thing it will do is when you put new batteries in it there is a red light on the front of the camera that flashes three time and thats it.

BATTERY DISCHARGE I have an Olympus FE 210 Digital Camera and had been using the same for over 3 months. Recently I observed a problem in the same. When I put the camera on, I can browse on the LCD screen and can see the snaps available in the memory. However, when I try to click a new snap, before the flash could pick up, the LCD screen trurns blue and starts showing the signal "BATTERY EMPTY". I changed many sets of new batteries but the problem continues. I am not able to use the camera for c

I have a digital camera type HP945 which has lately given me trouble. Recentlyy, it was stored away for short period whilst it was not in use. Unfortunately, the four AA batteries were left in it during this time. As a consequence, corrosion of the batteries occurred.

However, when I now close the battery compartment, I am confronted with the red timer light coming on either at flashing intervals or c

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)
