These are visual clues as to when the camera is capable of providing a good image based upon your current settings. When a red hand appears and the image capture environment is dark you may need to popup the flash or place the camera in flash ready mode.

When the camera displays a green hand your mode setting is correct for the environment you are using. As pointed out above, the opposite is true for a red hand display.

Hope that clears it up. If I'm not clear or on point just point that out and I'll clarify.

You may see the information on teh Kodak site for this. They are simply notification icons

"Understanding the blur warning icons --

If the feature is turned on ( InfoImage), a blur alert icon (hand) is displayed during picture review and quickview.

Green - Picture is sharp enough for an acceptable 4 x 6-inch (10 x 15 cm) print.

Yellow - Picture may be sharp enough for an acceptable 4 x 6-inch (10 x 15 cm) print or sharpness is not determined. (You may want to view on a computer monitor before printing.)

Red - Picture is not sharp enough for an acceptable 4 x 6-inch (10 x 15 cm) print.

White - Print sharpness is not determined."

SOURCE: AF flashing green, red AF sign on screen - won't take pictures

When you depress the picture button you should both hear the camera making motor noises and see the image focus changing as it seeks the proper focus for the image. If no focus movement takes place and you hear nothing then the focus motor is either completely jammed or malfunctioning. Alternatively focus movement may take place but it never finds the right focus point. Or you may hear a buzzing or clicking sound when it should be focusing. These symptoms can be caused by impact or, more commonly, sand or other contaminants making their way into the delicate system which moves the focus element. The camera will require professional repair in either of these cases. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

SOURCE: i keep getting the red hand never the green hand

Hi mariah, all the red hand means is that the camera was moved slightly when the picture was taken. If the picture looks fine I wouldn't work about it, or you could do like I did: I went to walmart and found a $25 tripod that works really well.

hope this helps!

SOURCE: Red hand icon when on my pix on ny camera

It means basically that there was not enough light to properly process the picture OR the shutter snapped before it was fully focused.

My tv looks weird red and green. The people are bright red/orangish and backgrounds are green. The picture is perfect. I already reset. I believe the colors are out. I want to change myself. Can you help.


If the convergence appear to be correct, the next step is replace the fluid in one of the projection TV tubes. You will have to very carefully remove the screen and see into the mirror which picture tube is not clear. All the instructions will be found to fix this, by searching the this website....TvRepairKits.com. Have your TV model number and chassis number near by. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

There no color only red d its plays but all the color is red it was playing last night it brinked then rede came on 18222


Before you go any further you need to press menu on your remote go to picture press select and then go to convergence press select again then a white cross should apear on the screen. Your objective is to converge or line the blue and green crosses up so that they appear as one cross. After you do this look at the directions at the bottom of your screen. Select the prompt that lets you continue. After you press continue several crosses should appear all over the screen do the same for these crosses as you did on the previous screen. This should solve your problem. If this doesnt fix it there is no high going voltage to your green and blue CRT's (cathode ray tubes). This could be caused by a number of things. I would take it to the nearest service tech being that you are dealing with high voltages comming from the tripler so high that if your hand or tool gets to close it could arc and ground through you even if the set is not connected to the power source

Pictures are blur


Hi,

Your pictures are blurry because the camera did not focus properly on the subject.

First, turn on the camera in any picture taking mode (or video mode), then look at the screen or viewfinder. There should be four white corners in the center of the camera display. This is your targeting area.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Aim the camera at your subject so this center area is directly on it.

2. Press the shutter button lightly, not all the way down. Wait for a second or two WITHOUT RELEASING YOUR FINGER. If the white corners turn green, keep the finger on the button and press it all the way.

(Once the screen flashes black, a picture is taken and you can release the finger).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the targeting area turns red and blinks, then the camera has not focused. You can to try to focus again by following step 1 and 2. If a picture is taken when the targeting area is red, then the picture will be blurry.

If there is no targeting area, then you can still focus by aiming the camera at your subject. Now follow step 2. A green box will appear on the subject, then a sharp picture can be taken.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The red arrow that flashes means that the pictures or videos are being written onto the memory card.

Also, try to be steady when taking pictures, because slight hand movement can cause blurry images too.

Page 25 in the DMC-FZ7's english manual will also explain how to focus.
