Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine. All of this in the same setting with the same subject and everything else a constant too.  Help please, it seems like I must be doing something wrong either that or my camera is broken. P.S. it is brand new Amber


No that isn't it but I am not offended. The flash in fact looks like it goes off but at 10% of the full strength. I had other people try to take a picture to see if the same thing happened to them and it did and I saw them, they did not have their ha ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Nikon d200 My pictures are coming out with red or yellow in it and I do the white balance with an expo disc. Did I do something wrong in the menu settings? I am shooting portraits with continuous lighting. What setting should I have my camera on? Also if you could give a good f stop and shutter speed for shooting kids that move alot - this is without a flash - using 500wt continuous lighting. Please help and Thank you - Thank you!!!!


Hello jenmardi,First, the fstop and shutter speed question ... For a lens of 70 mm I would use the manual with shutter speed at least 1/250 or 1/500, then the fstop I would set at 2.8 or just under this, no more than 4. You need as much l ... Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens

My camera won't switch on. I thought it needed charging but the light on the charger unit only goes from solid red to flashing red. Whilst in the charging unit, I can view the pictures on the card and it suggests the battery is at full strength. Is it worth getting a new battery or could something else be amiss?

Most likely the battery or charger is bad, and batteries go bad more often than chargers. You should measure the contacts on the charger, and see if you're getting a good charging voltage. If you don't have a voltmeter, you can pick one up at Har ... Casio EXILIM Card EX-S770 Digital Camera

I just got the fujifilm instant mini 7 and all the pictures are coming out black, is there something wrong with it, or am I just doing something wrong?


Check the ISO setting and that the lens shutter is actually opening when you take a pic. Black is underexposed and often relates to the wrong ISO setting ( film speed) I know its digital but ISO works like the old ASA and sets the shutter speed in r ... FUJIFILM instax mini 7 Digital Camera

I rec'd a The Sharper Image digital photo album with keychain as a gift two years ago. I have installed the 55 pictures from my pc to the unit. This unit will only work if I keep the unit plugged into my pc or a wall adapter. It does not respond to clicking the on and off switch. No light comes on green or red, but it is always green when plugged in. I think the unit does not have a battery in it as it should. If the battery is dead, it wasn't even used.

Hi there, i recently purchased a polaroid 600 camera from ebay and some 600 film. However, when I try to shoot, I just get blank pictures coming out (completely brown - alomst negative-type look). I'm not sure if I have loaded the film incorrectly, or if i am pressing the wrong button (there is a large green and smaller black on on the side of the camera - i have been pressing the green one), or if there is something wrong with either the camera or the film. Any advice appreciated


More than likely, the camera is ok. It sounds like the film is either expired, or the previous owner did not store the film properly, therefore it cannot be exposed properly. If you bought it off of ebay, you do not know how the previous owner took c ... Polaroid Digital Cameras

Charging...Red Light When I charge my klic5001 battery in the Kodak Easyshare Z760 docking system (not printer) it used to show three green lines when the charge was complete, but now it starts blinking red at me. I got a new battery and it does the same thing. And neither of the batteries are fully charged. I don't know if the dock has something wrong with it or what? Can you help me figure out how to charge my batteries?


This happened to me. The cause was the battery did not fit into the case, This led to poor connection of the battery. After I fixed the loose battery , it worked perfectly till today. ... Kodak EasyShare Z760 Digital Camera

I own a Canon EOS Rebel Xsi. I have recharged the battery and put it in the camera. However, the camera won't turn on. Shortly before having this problem, I seem to recall a message in red letters on the display that said something to the effect that my battery pack was bad. I have a sinking feeling that my battery is good, but there is something wrong with my camera. Can you recommend what I should do?


You can buy a new battery for around five pounds ($8). I found some straight away on Amazon. It has to be worth getting one just to see if it actually is your battery that's bad. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Troubleshooting. I'm currently using the EXILIM EX-Z60/Z60DX CASIO Digital Camera. I recently relocated and when I went to use my camera, I noticed the battery was almost dead. So, I took it home and put it on the charger. Usually, the red light will come on and it will charge, no problem. This time, the red light started blinking. I wasn't sure what that was so I left it on the cradle for about an hour to see if it would still charge. When I put the battery in the camera, my camera wouldn't eve

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.
