No flash Well, my Olympus 710 won't take pictures with the flash on. I don't know what happened, It will only take pictures with the flash turned off, and the flash charging light is always blinking. I didn't drop my camera. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

My Canon EOS rebel suddenly won't take pictures in dim light. The flash pops up and blinks and blinks trying to register the image but won't ever autofocus and take the picture. The light has to be very bright for it to take a picture. I have gone through all of the settings and everything seems to be correct. Any thoughts?


To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching ...

Taking pictures I have loved using my camera until it stopped being able to take pictures. Whenever I try to take a picture, the red light goes on a few times but the camera never flashes, clicks, or takes the picture. I can still look at my pictures but I can't take them. What is wrong and what should I do?


This could be due to a jammed lens element preventing the camera from focusing properly. When you push the button the camera attempts to focus the image before it takes the picture. If the focus component in the lens is not moving properly it cannot ... Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm trying to shoot a photo of my sleeping 2 year old, so the light is obviously low. I have the cameral on manual mode. I used the light meter to obtain my exposure, but when I push the button to take the picture, nothing happens. On the right side of the light meter, there is a blinking green light when I try to take the picture. What am I doing wrong? I'm out of town and I forgot my camera manual; I think I remember something in there about troubleshooting this parti

Evil flash there is either something wrong with my flash or the light meter, but 99% of the time when i go to take a picture, the flash goes off. hood up or down, it doesn't matter. it seems that the only time the flash doesn't go off is in extremely bright light, i called customer support and was basically told to send it away for a million years to have it repaired, but is there possibly a more simple solution?


It appears that there is something wrong with the sensor that senses when the pop-up flash is up or down. Try cleaning the whole area with compressed air, especially the little gaps in the mechanism. The part that is defective costs next to nothing, ... Fuji FinePix S9000 Zoom Digital Camera

OLYMPUS 410 all of a sudden mu camera wont take a picture, the video section of it works, but when you press the button to take a pitcure it does focus but doesnt take the pic, what is flashing continuously is the red lightening sign all the time, ! and the orange light on the viewfinder is permenantly flashing, whether im inside or out. would this be the cause of direct sunlight damaging the camera, its just a thought what do u think the problem is help !!! simon

Flash light I have a Nikon 5600 and every time I take a picture I have to wait some seconds with the lcd off and the red light from the flash blinking for about 8 or 10 seconds. I don't know if it's really a problem or if it's common in this model of camera.


It sounds like you've got the self-timer on by mistake. If you've got a copy of the manual, you can see how to turn it off/on on page 26. Alternatively, you can download it here:http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/4600_5600_en.pdf ... Nikon Coolpix 5600 Digital Camera

Casio Exilim Z850 The red light labelled'operation lamp' in the manual keeps flashing and when it is flashing the photo is not able to be taken or stored. Sometimes i can press 'disp' button, but it is not permenantly helping. From time to time when I switch my Casio Exilim EX-Z850 on there is a blinking red light next to the view finder. When this happens I can't take any pictures. Then the next time I switch it on it has gone and everything is fine again.

Have the Nikon D90 camera and it does not allow me to take pictures when ever I want. It is in full auto mode and just does not want to take the picture even in bright day light. The F keeps on blinking in full auto mode and even if I switch to manual mode it does not allow me to change settings. It is very frustrating! what is wrong with this D90??


The blinking F-- means that the camera doesn't think a lens is attached. You can try removing the lens and re-attaching it. Or if you have another lens, try that. There are quite a few reports of this issue with the 18-135 kit lens. ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens
