Having problems with your Samsung Digimax A402 Digital Camera ?

Camera Ready and Flash

\015 Camera turns on fine but then green light flashes and camera takes LITERALLY 1 minutes PLUS to be ready to take pictures even in broad daylight. And then a long time between photos to be ready again AND now no matter the mode I'm in, the flash won't fire at all.\015\012\015\012Batteries are new and I keep changing them with no change in above issues, I haven't changed anything since I last used camera in may'08, no warnings coming up on screen, nothing.... \015\012\015\012Help. Thanks\015

Answers :

I'f your using alkaline AAs, try using rechargeable NiMH batteries or lithium disposables. Alkalines are very poor at supplying the kind of current needed to recharge the flash. I've found other Samsung cameras to be particularly fussy about batteries, and not always consistently so! Good luck.

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 have a Minolta Maxxum 7000i with a 3200i flash unit. The flash is not working. The batteries are fresh and inserted properly. The control lights on the flash unit light up when I am ready to shoot but the flash does not fire. I have the camera in "P" mode and the flash is turned on. Can you help?

Can you fire the flash manually? there might be a red button on the flash for you to do this. If you can operate the flash manually, then take an eraser and clean the contacts on both the camera, and flash, then take a Q tip, and a little rubbing ... Digital Cameras

Just bought my used camera from Salvation Army. I know I shouldn't expect it to work, but it does in a way. I'd like to know why when I turn the camera on, the ready light flashes a few times (7, maybe), but does nothing else. I can't hear inside the camera to see if anything else is trying to function. I hooked the camera up to the computer, and nothing happened. Not sure if this is because I didn't install the CD needed.

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?

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. Is it the memory card? Batteries? or defective camera? It worked fine for the first year and before I got this one I had a similar powershot that did the same thing after a while of owning it.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P92 and it always has been working properly untill today. When I inserted a fresh pair of charged batteries the powerlight immediatly comes on, even before I turned the camera on. When I press the powerbutton and the camera starts I have to re-set the date, which is odd. After that done and ready for use the flash doesn't go off and it starts beeping and displays an error message: E:91.01 Is this problem fixable or should I throw it out of the window (metaforica

I have a Nikon E5400, ver 1.3. I bought a 4GB Kingston CF card; the package said "formatted and ready to use". On inserting into camera, the message flashed that the card is not formatted. So I proceeded to format. The next message that flashes is "Out of Memory". Questions: 1) is the CF card defective? 2) is E5400 incapable of reading a 4GB CF card, should we use only CF cards <1GB? 3) Will a firmware version upgrade to v1.4 help? 4) Any other reason why this could happen?

It cannot use a card larger than 2GB. Format the card in the camera. Insert it into a card reader and change the partition side to slightly under 2GB. The problem is FAT16 does not support more than 64K sectors of size 32K. ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and work... I can manually pop the flash but it still will not work..  I thought that when I bought the flash at the camera store the sales person turned off something on the camera for the new flash to work.. is there something I need to change in the menus to get the cameras own flash to work.....

I had the same problem. \015\012Look closely at the hotshoe. Inside it, way over to the side, under one of the tabs on the side, is a tiny metal strip.

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain

No worries, I think I can help you with this one.\015\012I believe that if you are using your Samsung Digimax in either "Auto" or "M" mode you will only have the options of "red eye flash" or "no flash". BUT HOWEVER, if you select the "Prog" mo ... Samsung Digimax S600 Digital Camera

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

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?

Flash issue I have a flash issue with my three Moultrie D40 cameras. They all worked fine for about a year, then the flash strted to malfunction and right now the flash is present at about 1-3 times out of 200 pictures. It's the same for all cameras. I guess that it's either the flash itself or the "power component" (I don't know the name for this in english) that feeds the flash. Any knowledge or advices about this? Thanks /Stefan, Sweden
