Flashing during photo preview
\015 Hi,I have the Nikon D80, and I must have changed the settings at one point that when I view photos - the bright parts are flashing black. What is it and how do I remove it??\015

You don't have to remove it... It tells you where the photo is burned... It is a nice feature, though if you dig the menus you will probably won't have to much problems taking it off.

My eos400d is taking photos but the lcd screen is not turning on at all. I cannot preview photos or access the menu. When it first did it the cf card started flashing wen I tried to take a photo. After taking some more photos I got a full cf card message. I deleted photos using my computer as I cant see anything on the screen but the lcd screen still wont come on. I have pressed the disp button also but nothing happens.

My 2 yr old Powershot A560 is not accepting new batteries. The lense telescopes and the lcd briefly lights up with the red battery symbol flashing. I can preview photos taken, but I cannot take any new photos. I just found a round flat battery? next to the AA batteries. I have not replaced it in the 2 yrs I've had my camera. The CR1220 serial number? is all I've found out about it on the battery holder. Thanks for your time.
The battery you found (CR1220) is for the camera memory.IE time and date.Chances are the batteries that were installed are dead.Also check the contacts on either end of the batteries and clean if needed. ... Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2. High ISO Auto Either setting, the indoor photos are grainy. Further, there are times when my flash will not work. It won't work on Auto setting or when I try and "force flash" it. No flash and the photo will not allow a picture to even be taken. Any suggestions? Thanks

Nikon CoolPix S500 shows colored lines on lcd and in photos where the lights are bright. I have restored settings tried using it with no flash, soft flash, and auto flash and the problem continues. Noticed the lines on the lcd over a year ago and it has progressed to brightly lit photos also now. In some photos lighter colors also show up with the lines. ie.

We just purchased a Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera. We completed the start up process and attempted to take a few test photos. we took two photos with flash and on the second photos, a loud noise was heard when the flash operated. We could never get the flash to operate again. We have read through the troubleshooting guide supplied with the camera and changed batteries and settings. No luck. Any assistance would be appreciated!

The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

Last night was taking photos indoors with flash on auto setting. All appeared fine except thre was a vertical line on the viewfinder, not quite half way across. After about 4 flash photos, the flash turned itself off and it wouldn't allow me to adjust the settings back to flash again. I checked the setting and it was still on auto and there was plenty of battery left. Tried a couple of shots and they took, but no flash, so useless. Turned camera off for half an hour then tried again and it was f

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?

I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u
