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.

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on. It seemed fine, but Christmas day when I wanted to take pictures with my camera, the zoom lens would not work, and then I couldn't view the pictures anymore. My husband went and bought a new battery, we put it in, and put it on t
Terrible time for a camera to fail, sorry. It sounds like the dock might be bad, and failing to recharge the new battery. The old battery may have been at the end of it's life, also.\015\012Other problems can cause these symptoms, which ca ... Digital Cameras
Turns Off Put new batteries in, took a picture and the picture didn't show up. Then the camera turned off. This happened once before but I forgot what I did to be able to use the camera. This time before it turned off the yellow light flashed on the back of the camera then the camera turned off.

Epson 750Z won't take pictures with new 2gb Sandisk ultra II compact flash card. When I press the button to take a picture, the green light turns to orange for a long time. With the Ultra card in the camera, the lens takes a long time to return to the Off position after turning off the camera. It will still take pictures using a Lexmar 32mb card.

Corrupted Pictures? There are times when I'll take a "long" photo (1200X1600 dimensions). The camera will take the picture. I will be able to view it on the camera. I'll download the picture to my computer (Windows XP). The download will work fine. I'll go to the folder where the picture is and I can see the thumbnail of the picture. However, when I double click the thumbnail to view the full image the picture won't open. I've noticed this only happening on "long" photos. I've often t

Taking pictures I have loved using my camera until it stopped being able to take pictures. Whenever I try to take a picture, the red light goes on a few times but the camera never flashes, clicks, or takes the picture. I can still look at my pictures but I can't take them. What is wrong and what should I do?
This could be due to a jammed lens element preventing the camera from focusing properly. When you push the button the camera attempts to focus the image before it takes the picture. If the focus component in the lens is not moving properly it cannot ... Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera

Missing shots I have a Coolpix L18/L16 Nikon and I am missing all of my pictures. I take them but by the time the shot goes through the picture is lost. It continually results in pictures where my daughter's eyes are closed. What can I do? I am guessing that some setting is off which makes it take too long to snap the photo.
Your camera works fine, but they made it like this, so you should push the button all the way down, not half way, because when you push half way, the camera focus on the target, and the little lasers flash, but that is no shoot... on the other hand, ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera
I installed a 2gb Olympus xd picture card and formated it replacing the 16mb Olympus xd picture card. Now the yellow light blinks for a full minute before the camera is ready to take pictures. This happens when the canera is first opened and between each shot.

Flash light I have a Nikon 5600 and every time I take a picture I have to wait some seconds with the lcd off and the red light from the flash blinking for about 8 or 10 seconds. I don't know if it's really a problem or if it's common in this model of camera.

Pictures always come out blurry and/or the lighting is awful regardless of what "scene" i choose. The only one that works "okay" some of the time is "portrait" scene. I don't know if I hit something by accident under a different menu that changed a setting. Also I thought this camera was supposed to be able to do that "multi-shot" function where is takes several snapshots when you take a picture. I have a wedding to attend and I'm so frustrated! Please help!
With digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.Many digital cameras have a two-st ... Nikon Coolpix S560 Digital Camera
Hi. My Fujifilm Finepixd S1800 camera has been acting up lately. When I try to take a picture, the camera takes several seconds to actually take it, the top light blinks yellow. I have brand new batteries in and they are all positioned correctly. Also, when I try to access my pictures, it has a loading screen but does not load. Please help as soon as possible. Thank you.
Your camera takes a sizable image which could be part of the problem loading it to the card it takes a long second or two. You also may be using a shooting mode that requires a long shutter speed and have the "noise reduction" activated in this case ... Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

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
