Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

I have a canon digital rebel xt with a speedlite 200e flash. The flash is not working in full auto mode, although the built in flash is. I have replaced the batteries in the flash and the ready light comes on. I have also reset the camera settings to default. Any ideas?

Answers :

In auto mode, the flash works only if it is necessary. You are saying that the flsah doesn't work in auto mode, and I assume that in other modes it's working properly. That means there is nothing wrong with the flash. So don't worry about the flash, it will fire in necessary, in full auto mode.

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.

Verify your shutter speed setting, it may be in the bulb setting or a very slow shutter speed such as 5 or 10 seconds. In the menu I think you can revert back to factory settings, most digitals offer this option.\015\012\015\012I am sorry ... Digital Cameras

My LI42 battery won't charge for my Olympus 790 SW. The charging light comes on, then flashes, then turns off within about a minute. The battery does not charge at all during this time. My manual does not say anything about a flashing light on the charger and I can't figure out if my battery is the problem or my charger.

Problem is most likely the battery. Try getting a new battery of the same specifications and see. That is the cheaper option. If that still does not work, then it could be the charger. ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Hello, I have the s7000. My batteries seem to be fine. It does not save the pictures quickly like it used to. The green light at the back stays orange for a while, then flickers orange/gree, then it has saved the photo and i can shhot again. Also when i turn it off, if the light is orange it will not close or retract the lens. Only after a few seconds, quite a few will it close. I also notice the pictures are not as sharp as before. Also, a few times the lens has not come out when turned on,

The saving issue may well be helped by unloading the photos from the memory and memory card and then reformatting it. It is recommended that the memory be reformatted after every download of photos rather than just extracting them and using the ... Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera
