Having problems with your Olympus 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  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?

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

When turning on the camera, the card reader light flashes sometimes for a full minute before you can take a picture, I am using a Olympus xD 2GB memory card which works fine after the card reader light quits flashing. Is there some setting that I need to set to get the camera to quit reading the whole card every time I turn the camera on. I formatted the card on the camera.
Are you saying that even with an empty card, it still takes that long? How are your batteries? Fresh or old? ... Olympus Camedia C-60 Zoom Digital Camera

Flash I bought an Olympus Camedia C2040zoom camera second hand - it is a super camera with good quality pictures however the flash is built in and sometimes when taking photographs indoors light from windows cancels the auto flash - how do I ensure the flash operates in such conditions to ensure the subjects inside are seen in the finished photo?

I was taking test photos around the house with my new camera and the flash won't fire properly (the flash pops up out of the camera but it makes little sparking sounds and flickering on and off). I've tried various modes including auto night etc but it won't stop flickering (just sparking sounds and a flickering flash like a light bulbs does just before it blows).also I have tried taking images using the basic auto mode in a low lit area and the flash pops up but does not fire.

Sony DSC-W90 digital camera: Flash will not work. Message E:91:01 flashes on the screen, along with the little lightning bolt that usually means the flash function is enabled. Also, tiny yellow light flashes to the right of the view finder, in back. I tried re-initializing the camera, as the handbook suggested, but this does not fix the problem.

Also if I try to press the power button again the light won't flicker but if I open the battery door and close it again it will reset the camera and flicker but that is all it does.

No matter what batteries I put in (brand new of course,) the darn thing will not turn on. Sometimes the green light in the back of the camera will blink and then stop and sometimes it wont do anything at all. The camera refuses to respond to any commands. Also, the lens is partially open (not in the typical closed position it should be in when the camera is turned off).
The reason for this malfunction is in-sufficient power, try cleaning the battery connecting terminals of the camera for rust/oxidation/moisture ... Casio QV-R40 Digital Camera
Bluish flashes I have problems with bluish flashes on some of the images in the viewer as well as on the prints. Sometimes if you line up your camera you can see these flashes, but if you let the camera 'settle down' for 5 or 6 seconds then the blueing disappears. I suspect it might be something to do with light levels but am no expert so any help would be appreciated.
There is a problem with blue marks on the Sony 707 but I've never heard of any problem on the Fuji.\015\012\015\012Does the flash coincide with handling the camera. If you tap the camera does the blue flash happen or is it completely random?\015\012\ ... Fuji FinePix 50i Digital Camera

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
When I insert the cassette into the camera, I hear noise like it is setting up, but when I press play or record, whether I'm in the VCR mode or the Camera mode, it whirrs for a moment, then stops. When I open the camera to take the tape out, sometimes the tape is hanging out of the cassette, sometimes it's not. Also the power light blicks twice quickly. Thanks. Bill Freeman

My EOS 400D flash sometimes pops up in bright daylight in full auto mode. I sent it back to Cannon who returned it saying no fault found. I then began to think that the problem was the way I held the camera and that I may be obscuring the (light?) sensor near the grip with my hand. After not using the camera for a while I am now taking shots again and the flash pop up problem has re-appeared. I am now sure I am not blocking the sensor. Any ideas?
In full auto mode, the camera tries to use fill flash, when it detects a backlit scene (e.g. a person in front of a window). So this is not a bug, it's a feature!If you don't want the flash to fire, you can push it down and still take the shot. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Camera won't take picture. I hold down the button, it focuses on object, orange light telling me flash is ready is lit and nothing happens. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos.

I do not see the error message anymore, but the camera simply do not take pictures properly. I tried formatting, etc with no result.

Camera Freeze Sometimes when I snap the shutter, the camera frezes, a very small red light quickly flashes (which is located to the right and bottom of the LCD on the back of the camera), and in the LCD there is the following display: D: 3C85 To clear the camera, I have to turn it off, then back on. Often it will do this several times in a row. The odd thing is, it does take a picture as the image is stored on the memory card. Help!

I have a canon digital rebel xt with a speedlite 200e flash. The flash is not working in full auto mode, although the built in flash is. I have replaced the batteries in the flash and the ready light comes on. I have also reset the camera settings to default. Any ideas?
In auto mode, the flash works only if it is necessary. You are saying that the flsah doesn't work in auto mode, and I assume that in other modes it's working properly. That means there is nothing wrong with the flash. So don't worry about the flash, ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
