Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Flash comes on all the time. Day shots are just white!! is this a fault or just a setting that needs changing?

Answers :

Possible that the CCD , charge coupled device, the imager of the camera is faulty. If by nay chance you have exposed the camera to high intensity lights the probability is high.
\012I dont think any settings can sett this right but a replacement,

Bright pictures I have had my Sony Cyber Shot (DSC-S650) for about 6 mo. I have tried all different settings for the flash but almost all of my pictures come out with the person very white and bright. The pictures are fine if taken outside in natural light but anything other than that and my pictures are very white and bright. I have even tried to turn the flash all the way down on the manual setting. This is the third Sony Cybershot camera that I have owned and have never needed to change any o

Not really sure if this is a problem? I have an Olympus E-500 and E-510. When I changes settings on the E-500 (ISO, White Balance, Auto-Focus Mode etc.) it remembers them when I switch it off. The E-510 doesn't. Is it supposed to work this way or is there an obscure setting I need to change? It remembers the time and date and the quelity settings ok. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

If you are shooting in the Auto mode and make the changes when power the camera off it will reset back to factory defaults. If you change the dial to P mode, make those same adjustments and power the camera off and then on again it should maintain t ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Blue photos Can anyone tell me some reasons why some outdoor shots I took of snow/trees, etc. might look blueish? I took some pictures at sundown that came out fine, and ones I took about 10 minutes later look blue. I don't recall changing any settings. I also took similar shots at the same time with another digital camera and those looked fine. Is this something that's common in low light with a lot of white background? (Or is this a "user problem?")

Snow pictures tend to be blue due to the blue spectrum being scattered and reflected from the snow (similar to why the sky is blue). Plus just after sunset, you're going to get a cooler color temperature (blue cast).\015\012\015\012However, instead o ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

Casio Exilim When I take pictures with my camera, in the viewfinder the picture comes out white. You can faintly see the picture in the back - but it's primarily white.

Pictures always come out blurry and/or the lighting is awful regardless of what "scene" i choose. The only one that works "okay" some of the time is "portrait" scene. I don't know if I hit something by accident under a different menu that changed a setting. Also I thought this camera was supposed to be able to do that "multi-shot" function where is takes several snapshots when you take a picture. I have a wedding to attend and I'm so frustrated! Please help!

Continuous shooting I'm new to this so bare with me. I just got my Nikon D60 and I want to shoot pictures in continuous mode. I set it on manual, go into the menu and change it to continuous. I rotate the dial so it changes the shutter speed but when I take pictures it's just a black screen. As a matter of fact any time I try to take a picture in M it's just black. I'm hoping that there is just a setting I need to change and there's not something wrong with my camera. Thanks.

I have had my S9600 for 4 years, for most of that time, when i changed the batteries, all my settings remained the same. Now, when i change the batteries, every setting has returned to factory standard (stupid beeps and whirring noises, no date etc) and i have to reset everything. The user manual has no mention of an internal battery, but i figure there must be one and it now needs replacing. How do I do this?

My camera has refused to power up despite fresh batteries - I have had no response. I left it overnight as suggested in the manual - but still nothing. It hasn't been used for a few months and was left without batteries for fear of leaking. Any ideas ... Fuji Finepix S9600 Digital Camera
