The booklet says that the light will continually flash until the charge is complete, however, the light only flashes about three times and then just stays red.

I whent and put it on the cahrger that day so I could continue to use it and it hasn't charged sense then. This problem

My EOS 400D flash sometimes pops up in bright daylight in full auto mode. I sent it back to Cannon who returned it saying no fault found. I then began to think that the problem was the way I held the camera and that I may be obscuring the (light?) sensor near the grip with my hand. After not using the camera for a while I am now taking shots again and the flash pop up problem has re-appeared. I am now sure I am not blocking the sensor. Any ideas?

In full auto mode, the camera tries to use fill flash, when it detects a backlit scene (e.g. a person in front of a window). So this is not a bug, it's a feature!If you don't want the flash to fire, you can push it down and still take the shot. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

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

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that? I am normally an old school film camera person - i dont know much about this at all... thanks kathleen

Hi I have a Canaon Powershot S11S camera. My problem is that when I hook it up to the computer to download my pictures the light on the camera flashes a few times but nothing happens.

I am using an Olympus E-500. and am trying to use the built in flash, set to one eight or to one sixty fourth of normal output, to trigger an external flash unit. The camera is set to "Vivid", manual, auto focus, and iso 100. From the "manual flash" menu I should be able to select either full, 1/4. 1/16 or 1/64 of the output. However, those choices never light up. I keep cycling through the first two lines of the menu and never reach the third line with the light output options I want. P

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain

No worries, I think I can help you with this one.\015\012I believe that if you are using your Samsung Digimax in either "Auto" or "M" mode you will only have the options of "red eye flash" or "no flash". BUT HOWEVER, if you select the "Prog" mo ... Samsung Digimax S600 Digital Camera

I have an old Sunpak 3075G Thyrisistor circuitry Flash that I used to use over 15 years ago, I recently got interested in Digital SLR photography and went to try it out the other day but I have a problem The flash refuses to fully charge up. Even with new batteries , it just continues to emit a high pitch hum usually associated with it recharging, but the ready light will not come on at all. When I try to push the mainual flash button I get no operation so I presume its not charging itself.

Christmas lights I want to take a picture of the Christmas lights on our house at night. How should I set my camera to get the best picture of this? Can I get a good picture without using the flash? I'd rather not use it since it will diminish the effect of the lights at night.

I have a samsung digimax S600 camera. From not too long back i have been having problems with the image quality of pictures clicked in broad day light in the outdoor. There is no problem, however, indoors whatever the light condition. Also, if i shoot a video using the camera, even on the outdoors, i get satisfactory results (not any different from earlier). What could be the problem? Thanks.

The shutter is not closing completely. The video function does not use the shutter so is not affected by it. You will need to have the shutter cleaned, inspected for obstructions. ... Fuji FinePix S700 Digital Camera

BATTERY DISCHARGE I have an Olympus FE 210 Digital Camera and had been using the same for over 3 months. Recently I observed a problem in the same. When I put the camera on, I can browse on the LCD screen and can see the snaps available in the memory.

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.

White out Every photo I take seems to white out, as if it is letting in to much light. But it is more than this, as it is possible to see white streaking on the image as well. I have also tried taking photos in various manual settings, resulting in the same problem. It seems to be a little better in doors. However when I use video mode the image is normal. This problem first occured on holiday in Singapore - when I took it into a shop out there they said it was probably the heat. But the problem
