Answers :

See if the BULB is in TACT they are Very Fragile
Verify the batteries are not an issue as advised, if they check ok the capacitor discharge circuit that fires the flash is defective and will have to be replaced, this is a job for a Pentax factory service center, look on the net for a phone number or in your owners guide.

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?

I changed the batteries in my Power Shot A720 IS recently when the low battery warning flashed, and had taken only two photos when the warning flashed again. I moved the mode switch to playback and the screen went dark "Change batteries now" appeared. I turned off the camera, set the mode switch to shooting, turned the camera back on and was able to take two more photos before the low battery warning returned and prevented any more picture taking. I purchased and installed new batteries and f

Put a new fully charged battery in - the camera would lasted for a couple of minutes and then would not switch on. The battery works fine in an identical camera. Put in a second battery - that worked for a bit then started flashing battery problem and wouldn't switch on. 5 minutes later - it did switch on - lasted for a short time and then started flashing ERR 99, and then wouldn't switch on again. Battery works fine in an identical camera. 10 minutes later - started working again, but the Sigma

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?

My LI42 battery won't charge for my Olympus 790 SW. The charging light comes on, then flashes, then turns off within about a minute. The battery does not charge at all during this time. My manual does not say anything about a flashing light on the charger and I can't figure out if my battery is the problem or my charger.


Problem is most likely the battery. Try getting a new battery of the same specifications and see. That is the cheaper option. If that still does not work, then it could be the charger. ... Olympus Digital Cameras

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power).

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.


I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them. If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons toget ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

My Insignia HD Insignia Camcorder won't charge. The battery is in correctly. It won't charge. I plug in the charger and it flashes for a couple hours. It should be good to go right? Wrong, the thing records for less than a minute and then it is completely dead. Oh yeah, I even wasted money on a new battery, same results. Charging via usb to the computer gets me no where. It flashes for 10 seconds then go solid red.

Power problem I was trying to get the Olympus working with a DC power and the rubber protector says 6.5V. I have tried with a lab power supply and the camera just flashes ones and goes dead. The battery light is flashing. I have tried everything from 5V to round 7V and but nothing seems to do it. There is no shortage on current since this is a beefy lab supply...

I just received a Polaroid Pogo printer as a present. When I charged it for the first time, the LED flashed yellow (ok) then, after about 3 hours, green when it was charged (ok). When I removed the unit from the AC supply it immediately flashed Red (...not ok) indicating "out of battery". I disconnected and reconnected the battery and tried again, but still no success. Any advice?


I tried to find a battery for this unit online, to no avail. Sometimes, rechargeabe batteries drain during their shelf life, and it takes 3 to 5 times recharging and discharging to establish the charge.\015\012If this was a Christmas present ... Digital Cameras
