Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

How do i get the light to work so i can record video at night



Answers :

You didn't mention a make or model, but video cameras that take both still pics and videos do not have a MOVIE function light. The flash will work only with still photos. If you need to use such a camera for low-light videos you will need to purchase a separate movie light.

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th

Canon xt When I try to shoot sports at night under lights I am having difficulty getting my camera in maunal mode without having bulb mode as well. How do I turn bulb off? I am setting my ISO at 1600 and pushing my f-stop as low as I can go, am I doing something wrong? It worked once for a recent football game but again last night shooting soccer could not get the bulb setting to turn off.


First of all, shooting sports in manual is about the most difficult thing you could ever choose to do. I use the Av (Aperture Priority) and let the camera set the shutter speed. Just set your aperture wide open and fire away. That way, you're not con ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Hi, my fuji fine pix camera has absolutely no power, i need it tommorow night for a big family event and it wont work. When i try and use charge it also there are no lights etc indicating a charge. A few month back i got my bag wet and the camera was in there. The camera worked after that when it was dried out. Now it does not, is there anything i can try at home to get it to work ??? :/ thankyou.


If the camera got wet the way you described, it can run for days, weeks, and months, but even with your best efforts to dry it out, moisture still got in there and caused it to fail. I have worked on countless pieces over the years that ... Digital Cameras

My camera worked very recently, as I took pictures on a camping trip. However, a few days later after getting back, I've found that it refuses to turn on. If I turn it to either Video or Photo, the light turns green, but then immediately flashes red several times and shuts off. I've tried different batteries, with and without several SD cards, and nothing works... How do I fix it?


Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. ... Kodak EasyShare CX6200 Digital Camera
