Having problems with your Panasonic DMC-FX33 Silver Digital Camera ?

Message keeps coming up 'Please turn camera off then on again'. Checked battery & memory card ok. Discovered if I point at window (daylight) it will take picture...but not indoors (even though it's bright enough. Is this Shutter or Flash problem? and how can this just happen when I was taking pictures no problem few minutes ago. Camera hasn't had any damage

Answers :

First off all thank you for posting your question on FIxya and wish you a Happy New Year.
Now about the problem. Regarding the shutter its not a problem. You can eliminate this issue by using the "Intelligent ISO" setting on your camera, which automatically adjusts the shutter speed among other things. For information on how to use this setting, please refer to page 58 of this manual(Click to download)
Regarding the "Please turn off then on again" message, it is a lens related issue. If the lens does not extend or retract properly, you will see this image. TO confirm this turn off the camera try to manually push the lens inside and see if the error message disappears. If it does, then you should get the lens gears cleaned by your local camera repair guy so that what ever is causing this problem wont get deeper into the lens mechanism and cause problems.

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?

Please reset camera through Reset option in Menu. This will set camera on default settings and any glitch in settings will be removed.Thanks. ... Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

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

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden. The camera took about 8 pictures, then after turning it off for about 2 hours, it would not take any more pictures. This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.

Electronic switch under shutter button is defective and you need to replace it under following part number.. (please select part number according to cabinet color of your DSC-P8)1-477-770-11 SWITCH BLOCK, CONTROL (SILVER) 1-477-770- ... Digital Cameras

All my pictures have suddenly become over exposed. I have taken thousands of photos with this camera - mostly on auto setting - with no problem. I have checked my settings and they are all still on auto. Last Saturday night I was taking a lot of photos with flash and my camera got very hot. This may be something that happens naturally but not happened to me before. But I have taken over 100 photos since then without sny problem at all.

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

Trouble in my camera: no flash while taking photographs even though it is set in flash position. As on opening there comes a blinking like'E:919'& flash symbol. It arose 2days back when I just opened to click a shot(press half the click botton).25 days ago I had faced the same problem & got repaired at SONY servicing center, Raipur. Just on the next use it problems again.What is the problem sir?

Mirror locked up at 125th or slower and infill flash does not flash. At faster speed it works fine. The display on top of camera goes virtually blank and battery display flahes a sif it battery was exhausted. If shutter release is pressed again then camera goes back to normal 'ready to sheet' mode.As flash is synced to 125th I suspect that the flash is the problem (or maybe it is just coincidence) I have tried cleaning, used lenses and put in a brand new battery. Any clues?

Pentax K110d flash trigger problem, I have 2 flash trigger strobes set up and a flash on the hot shoe of the camera, but with shutter release the trigger strobe lights fire but do not show in the pic, only the hot shoe flash is reaching the sensor. but if I slow down shutter to 0.5 sec the strobes show up.?

Your camera uses a PTTL flash system. That means the flash on the camera fires a "pre-flash" to set the exposure and then the main flash. Your flash trigger strobes are reacting to the pre-flash and firing before the shutter activates. This all happe ... Pentax K110D Digital Camera

Flash problem So, I set the camera to 'Flash On'. I take a picture and the flash goes off for about a quick second. I look at the picture and it's nothing but a black background, sometimes white where I can only slightly see the object I took the picture of. What's wrong with my camera? This only happens sometimes, by the way. Sometimes I take a picture and everything's normal.

The CCD element has been a great problem in this camera along with a faulty iris in the lens. I would return the camera to the Sony facility in Laredo, TX and let them know the exact symptom you are having. I see many of these cameras being repaired ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

I have loved this camera but everytime I take a flash picture it causes the subjects to close their eyes. I've never had this problem with other cameras. Is the flash not timed properly or is it too bright? Can you help?
