Having problems with your Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera ?

My camera is way to slow to take a picture

\015 I have a Pentax Optio A10. For the last year, it seems to take about four to five seconds (slower than other digital cameras I've used) for the picture to take once the Shutter release button is pushed. What can i do to speed it up? Is there something wrong or could it be a setting I accidently engaged? Thanks. \015

Answers :

If you read the reviews on A10 it has something like 1.73 seconds shutter lag, which is very slow to some other cameras with only 0.3 shutter lag. Redeuce the pixels to 6mb. Also a weak battery and maybe a under performing m.card add to your camera seem to be slower usual.

I have a Casio Exilim S12 digital camera, and after I take a picture it says "busy, please wait" is there a way to get rid of that or fix it? It makes picture taking very slow.


It sounds like you have a very slow memory card, go to a reputable store and ask for the fastest card they have, they are not much and worth it. Remember dirt sand and dust are your cameras enemy, avoid dirt, and get a dust proof bag to keep it in. ... Casio Exilim EX-Z55 Digital Camera

After I take 20 pictures, the camera tell me I have used up my internal memory, but why can I not use my memory 256 card. I just bought a new card because I thought the other one was worn out, but it will not work with this new card. Every time I take my 20 pictures, I have to download on my computer and delete so I can take more pictures. It has not always been this way. I have had my camera for about three years.

Canon SD600 I used my camera to take pictures of fireworks and I noticed that afterwards, all the photos I was taking outside in daylight were turning white. If I take pictures in the dark, they turn out perfect, and low light pictures are fairly normal except anywhere where there is a light source (lamp, window, etc) the color is streaky and orange. This particular camera has no way to adjust the aperture settings and I am considering taking it to a shop to have it looked at. Is there anything


It sounds like you may be in a low light mode. Put the camera in record mode, and then press the set button (in the middle of the up down left right keys). You probably want the camera to be in automatic mode (or A). If this doesn't solve the prob ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

I have a canon powershot sd1100 IS and bought it on ebay back in the fall. I havent had any problems and it was in great condition. One night I went to erase some pictures before going out- the camera was fine. About an hour later, I took the camera out of my purse and when I turned it on I saw the screen was white whether I went to take a picture or view one. I can still take pictures and load them on my computer but I can't see what I'm taking because of the white. Is there a way to fix this?

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.

Purple Pictures When in the camera mode my mvc-fd73 appears all purple, the pictures also turn out this way. I was outside taking pictures and noticed the screen color go nutz a couple of times. Came inside to take a few pictures and found the camera in this purple almost a solorized effect. The Screen looks fine in the play mode. I've tried a freshly charged battery and a fresh disk, but it made no difference.

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months.

To adjust the focus on the camera you are suppose to press the shutter button halfway down and it will lock your focus in and then press the shutter button again and take the picture. It was working fine and the next time I turned my camera on this option would not work. I try the press the shutter button down halfway the it does nothing.

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?

We use our camera for passports, so having the pictures stay in the camera, then hook to camera up to the passport photo printer, is the easiest way to go. Recently, I ended up taking lots of pictures, so I moved the passport photos off of the card and onto the computer. When I was done, I put the passport photos back onto the card (after removing the new photos), but now the camera says there are no pictures, even though I can view them through the computer using the USB cable attatched to the

After the second or third picture that I take the camera freezes up and the "red busy" light continuously flashes. and will not let you do anything or let you push any buttons.
