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

Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything. Any ideas? Has anyone had this problem before? Camera is only a year old so hope it's not broke! thanks for the help.

I have a Nikon E5400, ver 1.3. I bought a 4GB Kingston CF card; the package said "formatted and ready to use". On inserting into camera, the message flashed that the card is not formatted. So I proceeded to format. The next message that flashes is "Out of Memory". Questions: 1) is the CF card defective? 2) is E5400 incapable of reading a 4GB CF card, should we use only CF cards <1GB? 3) Will a firmware version upgrade to v1.4 help? 4) Any other reason why this could happen?


It cannot use a card larger than 2GB. Format the card in the camera. Insert it into a card reader and change the partition side to slightly under 2GB. The problem is FAT16 does not support more than 64K sectors of size 32K. ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

I have a Sylvania Digital Picture frame that I just purchased new from Wal-mart.

Please help as this is a gift for my son who will be returning to base in another week.

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again.
