I've got an A-75 digital (Canon) When pushing down on the shutter button, the orange light is on next to the viewing window. It will not take a photograph and the flash does not work. I looked through the manual and it said something about the flash charge. When I attempt to take a photo the image has green squares throughout the viewing screen as if they are focusing screens. I also tried to reformat the camera with the new memory card. NO Luck. Any suggestions?

Flash Problems Ok here is my problem. The flash on my camera won't go. I finally got the flash options to reappear but the flash is still not going. The screen has a lighting bolt symbol with a yellow blicking light and also on the camera itself. Also on the screen this is blicking, E:91:01. This is driving me crazy. Now the flash options are no longer there. Has this happened to anyone else? Please help Thank you. Patty

Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer. ... Casio Digital Cameras

Olympus Camedia 450 Zoom digital Camera has just started to keep showing card full after a couple of shots. The cards are 64Mb and are OK as I have checked them [3] on the PC with a disk/card program. I have also formated them both in the camera and also the PC under a FAT 16 basis. The two lights [red/green] also flash sometimes so changed batteries just to make sure that was not the problem. Any suggestions other than scrapping it? Cheers Peter

Nikon d200 My pictures are coming out with red or yellow in it and I do the white balance with an expo disc. Did I do something wrong in the menu settings? I am shooting portraits with continuous lighting. What setting should I have my camera on?

Hello jenmardi,First, the fstop and shutter speed question ... For a lens of 70 mm I would use the manual with shutter speed at least 1/250 or 1/500, then the fstop I would set at 2.8 or just under this, no more than 4. You need as much l ... Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens

My camera is only 4 years old. I am getting low light on my inside taken pictures. I've tried the different flash settings and the color compensation and white balance, which don't seem to help.

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

I have a ES55 Samsung compact camera for over 1 year and it always worked fine. Now, for no apparent reason, when I press the switch button, nothing happens; the "press play button twice" doesn't work either, and when I connect it to the PC, the amber light get flashing but I'm sure the battery is charged. This seems to be a recurrent problem with other users, anyone has a suggestion to share, please?

Hi! My camera powers up, shows the EasyShare splash screen, then nothing can be viewed either on the LCD or via the eye viewer. Yep, the cap is off so that's not obstructing it; there is plenty of light, the flash is on but does't work. I also can't get the Menu or Review to display on the LCD. This has just begun happening, no damage to the unit, it's fully charged... Please help!!! Thank you so much! Tracy

Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red. This would seem to indicate that it is charged. But it won't turn on. Can you please advise? Also, we lost the battery charger that plugs into AC outlet. Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?
