Having problems with your Kodak Digital Cameras ?

Why does green or red hand appear on screen after taking picture


Answers :

These are visual clues as to when the camera is capable of providing a good image based upon your current settings. When a red hand appears and the image capture environment is dark you may need to popup the flash or place the camera in flash ready mode.

When the camera displays a green hand your mode setting is correct for the environment you are using. As pointed out above, the opposite is true for a red hand display.

Hope that clears it up. If I'm not clear or on point just point that out and I'll clarify.

Within the last few days, suddenly when I take a picture a picture there is a little red eye that is flashing on the left hand of the screen and the little green light at the top is flashing also and there is hesitation of about 15 seconds before a picture is taken and then the picture will have a redish tint to it when it processes.

When I switch the camera on the screen stays blank even though the lens comes out, it eventually goes off (with the lens still out after about 40 seconds). I can get the camera to work if I press the green "view" key and then, after the picture appears, press the red camera icon and it will go into auto shoot mode. Happens every time now. I can't take it in under warranty as it was a present and I don't have the receipt unfortunately.

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
