My CF card light flashes on and off and the lcd goes on and off. When I try to upload pictures the icon for my camera registers on and off making it impossible to click on.

Hi, all of a sudden, my Canon Rebet XT gave me a faint flashing error 99 message. It won't turn off and the red light at the bottom right of the screen stays on even when I turn my camera off. I have to take the battery out in order for it to turn off. The led screen is blank and shows only the battery icon. HELP, my son is graduating from H.S. and I need to take lots of photos. Thank you.

I have a Minolta Maxxum 7000i with a 3200i flash unit. The flash is not working. The batteries are fresh and inserted properly. The control lights on the flash unit light up when I am ready to shoot but the flash does not fire. I have the camera in "P" mode and the flash is turned on. Can you help?


Can you fire the flash manually? there might be a red button on the flash for you to do this. If you can operate the flash manually, then take an eraser and clean the contacts on both the camera, and flash, then take a Q tip, and a little rubbing ... Digital Cameras

DSC-W200 Frozen My W200 has the lens open (extended) and will not close. Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens. I've tried connecting it to my macbook, using a fully charged battery, memory card vs no card, etc. Nothing seems to work. If I press the power button a seond time, the green power light goes off, but the LCD still says Sony. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not too eager to send it

I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 that I can't get the flash to go off on. The only flash setting that works on my camera is no flash setting and the icon for the no flash symbol appears white. The rest of the settings such as automatic flash with red-eye, and automatic flash, ect... are red. Is this a settings issues or a repair issue? If it is a repair issue could you tell me what on the camera needs to be repaired. Weather it be the LED light is broken or a resistor or transistor on the circuit

On my Nikon D70s, when I take a picture and see the image previewed briefly on the back LCD, the highlights flash negative image tones(black) in about 1/2 second intervals. This same effect is also present when scrolling thruough and previewing the images on the LCD. Is the LCD going out? Thanks in adavance for any help you can provide.


There is nothing wrong with your camera. What you are seeing are the blown-out highlights. Those are the portions of your image that have been overexposed so completely that they have lost all detail and will show up as pure white. In most cases the ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera

The camera will not turn on after being dropped. When I switch it from off to on, the green power LED flashes briefly. The lens does not move or attempt to extend. The LCD backlight does not illuminate. The LCD appears to be slightly damaged: there is some slight non-uniformity visible when I shine a strong light on it. Otherwise the camera shows no sign of damage. Is it possible that the damaged LCD is preventing the camera from turning on? Is there a hard reset procedure I should try? I've t

Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything. Any ideas? Has anyone had this problem before? Camera is only a year old so hope it's not broke! thanks for the help.

Bluish flashes I have problems with bluish flashes on some of the images in the viewer as well as on the prints. Sometimes if you line up your camera you can see these flashes, but if you let the camera 'settle down' for 5 or 6 seconds then the blueing disappears. I suspect it might be something to do with light levels but am no expert so any help would be appreciated.


There is a problem with blue marks on the Sony 707 but I've never heard of any problem on the Fuji.\015\012\015\012Does the flash coincide with handling the camera. If you tap the camera does the blue flash happen or is it completely random?\015\012\ ... Fuji FinePix 50i Digital Camera

Camera Freeze Sometimes when I snap the shutter, the camera frezes, a very small red light quickly flashes (which is located to the right and bottom of the LCD on the back of the camera), and in the LCD there is the following display: D: 3C85 To clear the camera, I have to turn it off, then back on. Often it will do this several times in a row. The odd thing is, it does take a picture as the image is stored on the memory card. Help!

My Nikon D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?
