Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera ?

The flash and timing are messed up.

\015 THis camera has worked great for two years and now all of a sudden the timing in between when I snap the picture and when it processes has changed. I tried to fix it without a manual (can't find mine) and then I ended up changing the flash settings! Please help if you can!\015\012\015\012Thanks.\015

Answers :

What mode are you in?

go to sony.com and try to download a manual in the customer support section. i believe sony is fairly on top of these things and as its a recent released camera it's definitely there if they stock user manuals on the site.

if it says "processing" when you take the pic, you are in low-light mode and it's holding the shutter open abnormally long to let in as much light as possible. this is for moonlit pictures and such where you would otherwise see BLACK. and it uses no flash, so it must 'expose' the picture longer than normal.

if you dont know or cannot figure out hot to modify the camera settings put it on the little green camera setting, or "auto" mode. then push the flash button until it has ONE large lightning bolt, or a crossed-out lightning bolt for the fastest flash or no flash.

you could have it in "slow-syncro" which flashes numerous times to expose more of the photo-field to light......

get a manual :) its a good one and well-wort using and learning for such a nice camera.

best of luck!

Evil flash there is either something wrong with my flash or the light meter, but 99% of the time when i go to take a picture, the flash goes off. hood up or down, it doesn't matter. it seems that the only time the flash doesn't go off is in extremely bright light, i called customer support and was basically told to send it away for a million years to have it repaired, but is there possibly a more simple solution?

Casio Exilim Z850 The red light labelled'operation lamp' in the manual keeps flashing and when it is flashing the photo is not able to be taken or stored. Sometimes i can press 'disp' button, but it is not permenantly helping. From time to time when I switch my Casio Exilim EX-Z850 on there is a blinking red light next to the view finder. When this happens I can't take any pictures. Then the next time I switch it on it has gone and everything is fine again.

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

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
