When I take a picture using the flash it comes out very dark, darker that taking it without the flash. The flash goes off as usual. It it almost like the flash is causing a shadow on the picture. I have had this camera for aprox 3 years and never had any problems with it before.

Hello. I have problems taking pictures with my Cobra DCA1030 indoors. The flash either seems to be entirely too bright or if I don't use the flash the picture is too dark. Pictures taken outdoors turn out fine but I wish I could use it indoors as well. I wasn't sure if there were any recommended settings that would make for better indoor pictures? Thank you, Jason S

Uneven flash Hi, my Nikon d40x has a problem with its flash when I rotate it, for example, to take a picture of someone standing. Only the left side of the frame illuminates, and the right side of the picture is dark. However, when I use the camera horizontally, the flash works fine and illuminates evenly. What am I doing wrong?

Look carefully at your images taken with flash... on the horizontal image is the lower part of the image slighty darker and have a rounded fall off at the edges? Is the vertical image dark side a straight hard line or is there a rounding to the top ... Nikon D40X Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Flash light I have a Nikon 5600 and every time I take a picture I have to wait some seconds with the lcd off and the red light from the flash blinking for about 8 or 10 seconds. I don't know if it's really a problem or if it's common in this model of camera.

It sounds like you've got the self-timer on by mistake. If you've got a copy of the manual, you can see how to turn it off/on on page 26. Alternatively, you can download it here:http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/4600_5600_en.pdf ... Nikon Coolpix 5600 Digital Camera

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos. After that, the camera is acting weird, pictures sometimes are taken but the picture is always dark, although flash is used and AUTO mode selected. I do not see the error message anymore, but the camera simply do not take pictures properly. I tried formatting, etc with no result.

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

Flash problem has anyone experienced taking a flash picture with the istd and have the onboard flash buzz and strobe fast without focus lock and then could not take a picture. is that a problem with the camera?

That is normal operation, if poped up, the flash fires rapidily in low light to assist the auto focus, on a plain white wall, it can't focus, see the manual on AUto Focus limitations. ... Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera

My canon powershot s3 IS is taking really dark pictures. The only decent pictures I can take with it are outside in sunlight. Pics indoors come out dark and grainy. I flip up the flash, but most of the time the flash doesn't go off, like there is enough light. And then when it does go off, the picture is way too bright. Help please!!

This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camer ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Flash problem So, I set the camera to 'Flash On'. I take a picture and the flash goes off for about a quick second. I look at the picture and it's nothing but a black background, sometimes white where I can only slightly see the object I took the picture of. What's wrong with my camera? This only happens sometimes, by the way. Sometimes I take a picture and everything's normal.

The CCD element has been a great problem in this camera along with a faulty iris in the lens. I would return the camera to the Sony facility in Laredo, TX and let them know the exact symptom you are having. I see many of these cameras being repaired ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.

Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges

I don't know if this will help and this post is two months old. The \015\012camera store may be right that the synchronization is the issue which \015\012tends me to point a finger at the external flash. There are at least \015\012three different fla ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

I have a Canon SRL Rebel 1.5 years old and the flash stoped to work. If I am taking pictures inside the house the pictures are dark( you can see the subject but is dark)and the flash does not activate. When I am taking outside everything is working fine.Could anybody help me, with any suggestion?

The flash mechanism is broken. You will have to either take the camera to a repair shop or buy a new one. It could get pretty expensive to fix that. Also I would check with the manufactorer too see if you have any type of warranty left. ... Digital Cameras

I first experienced a problem with my Canon S2Is camera when it was only taking pictures of blank images. I found a "fix" recommendation which seems to have gotten rid of the black image problem. However, now when I take pictures the images seem to have horizonal lines through them if I don't use the flash. Also, if I am taking a picture outside or in a lot of light, the image ends up being extremely light. Have any suggestions?

Think you need to do the fix more. Believe your shutter was previously stuck in the closed position. Now it sounds like it is stuck in the open position. Again keep trying the fix to loosen it up. Just to confirm, the "fix" you're talking about i ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

Flash problems well i got my olympus stylus 710 a year ago and well now i am having problems with the flash itself. when i want the flash on, on the screen appears a blinking red flash sign.. -what does it mean? & -how can i fix it? background facts (i can take pictures when i turn the flash off, but when its on no pictures can be taken) HELLLLPPPP

Hey emeffem,\015\012 What is most likely causing this is that the flash is set to off which would be symbolized by a lightening bolt sign crossed out. Directions on how to turn it back on are on page 13 of your camer ... Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera

When I turn on my camera to take a picture the display screen is completely black. If I try and take a picture nothing comes out. The whole picture is completely black. The camera is still functioning as if it is taking the picture. The flash continues to work, but unfortunately no picture comes out. But when I switch to the display mode to view my pictures, I can see the old pictures from my memory card. But I just can not take any new pictures. What should I do? What do you think the problem i

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.

The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras
