Flash flickers... I have a Sony Cybershot, and I always have the flash on. Now whenever I take a picture the flash never goes, it flickers a little bit but not enough to get a good picture. Its on normal setting, not on burst. Do I have to replace the bulb or what do i do?

Error E:62:10 My Sony Cybershot DSC-T9 has suddenly flashing E:62:10 all the time. The camera is also taking longer than usual to get to the taking pictures stage eg, when you flick open the lense, it takes around 10 seconds for anything to show.  Does this have to do with the error that is flashing up - I can't get rid of it.

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?

Please reset camera through Reset option in Menu. This will set camera on default settings and any glitch in settings will be removed.Thanks. ... Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

I can't take a picture with the flash. Everytime I set it to flash mode and I hold down the button and I think it's the ready light that stays light but it doesn't take a picture. I had one of my friends take a look at they said that my flash bulb is probabally out. Is there anything I can do without having to replace the bulb?

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Intermittent problem The camera works fine for awhile then the 4-way selector suddenly will not change the menu. Or it gets stuck on full flash or no flash. The selections may get mixed up. The review won't activate except for the last shot sometimes. Then if you leave the camera for a couple of days it seems to fix itself. Everything is fine then suddenly all the troubles come back.

Broken Camera Well, I dropped my camera, and tada, it is messed up. It turns on, it takes pictures, but the only button that works is the on/off button and the button to take the pictures. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5634183 is the camera, I've had it for 2 years, so the warranty is up. The setting I had it to before had no flash, so now I can't take pictures with flash. If I could get any help, that would be great!

One of the cables connecting to the other buttons probably came out of its socket. It needs to be opened up and checked 1st. Sometimes maybe there is a crack which needs to mended to restore the reset of the button. ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

Flash I there a way i can program the camera to take perfect pics without manually adjusting flash. All i need is to shoot at the object and get a clear pics. With this minolta i have to test several shots while adjusting the flash to appropriate exposures before I get a good pic.
