Battery Problems The Canon PowerShot A480 is sucking the life out of the batteries! I get about half a dozen shots and it says I need new batteries - I change to fully-charged ones and as soon as I put them in they are almost gone (that icon is flashing at me). I have used new rechargeble and old ones ... I've used two different rechargers ... I've tried leaving the batteries in until the red light goes out on the charger and I've also tried leaving the batteries in for a day or so past the red

Hi I bought an Exilim EX-Z850 a couple of years and had been quite pleased with it even though I don't use it very much. I took it a few days ago and tried to use it, but it would not start. I charge both bayyeries (one original and one spare). The camera does not start. When I insert the battery, I can see a quick green flash by the eye viewing window for a fraction of a second. Please help. Many thanks. Ben W

Took Canon A620 apart to replace the motorized lens. One small spring fell out of somewhere in the process. One expert said I need to take the CCD out and that the spring is used to adjust the lens. I do not know what CCD is let alone where the spring goes. I put it back together without it and it appears to be working fine!!!!!!

We are now on our 3rd 5.0 bushnell night sentry camera and the night pictures are black. With the second camera, we might get the first picture where the flash goes off, but the subsequent ones are black. We have replaced batteries and also have a solar panel. We did use this same model of camera last winter and were getting beautiful night pictures so we decided to get a second one. Day photos are beautiful. Help!


OK, I think that this is a problem with the flash not working correctly, and you are within the warranty period, I'm hoping, so that you can get it replaced.\015\012\015\012Power shouldn't be an issue since you have a solar panel.\ ... Bushnell Trail Sentry 11-9200 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

Canon PowerShot A75 digital cmera suddenly went dead so I can no longer take pictures. Colors flash across the screen instead of the normal clear screen. It turns on and I can pick up the old pictures. It worked one day and then the next was gone. I love the camera and have had it for just over one year. If it costs too much to repair I won't bother, but what do I do and where do I go?

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 Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and tried all modes expecting that the ones listed in the manual as using a flash would work, but they dont, it never pops up. I lifted up the flash with my fingernail manually, and then tried taking a picture where a flash was most definitely needed, but it still had a long delay, no flash, and


In addition to resetting all the camera settings you should also choose the "clear all custom functions" option that is also available from the same menu. Once that's done. Put the camera in Full Auto mode and see if the issue is resolved. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble. I'm not sure what the best setting are? I've tried using the flash, but the whole picture just glares out, the light bounces off of the card and makes a big glare in the center. Without the flash, the picture is too dark. Can you help me figure out the best setting to use? Or, what kind of lighting

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.

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

Flashless photograghy I bought a this camera about a month ago.

I recently purchased this Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS/1000 from Best Buy and happily used it for about 6 weeks, when suddenly the AF button won't work, and when I try to use manual (since I was very accomplished with 33 mm cameras at one time) I can barely get a decent focus -- it's an almost impossible task. What happened? This camera has not been dropped or misued in any way, and I fear there is no future in taking it back to Best Buy with their rigid return policy of 14 days and no longer. HEL

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.


These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

Blurred pictures I started using my new Nikon Coolpix on Christmas Eve and have taken photos for about 2 weeks. More than half of the pictures are very blurry after I transferred them to my computer and enlarged them to view. My daughter also got a Canon Elph on the same day and her photo quality is much much better. I also own a Nikon D5000 and have always been very happy with the quality, thus my choice of a Nikon pocket camera. Have I made a mistake?

The CF light is on and the number 252 is flashing in the little window. PLEASE tell me I just need a new card.
