Having problems with your Polaroid i531 Digital Camera ?
Can't take pictures with the flash
\015 Ever since I purchased this camera, I have been unable to take pictures while the flash is on. Whenever I try to take pictures with the flash, the camera shuts off. This is very annoying because there are many times that I am unable to take a good picture because the lighting isn't right and I cannot use the flash. Please help, I cannot take this anymore!\015
I would suggest returning it for one that will take pictures when the flash is turned on. Doesn't sound like you are doing anything wrong, just sounds like the camera is faulty.

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it. There is no history

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.
Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras

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.
