Question about Canon PowerShot A410 Digital Camera
I just changed the batteries of my camera, and there is still quite a delay when taking pictures. I am also having trouble with a flashing lightning bolt symbol. When this is flashing, the picture doesn't take....and I lose a great shot. There is about a 10 second delay when taking the picture. The lighting bolt looks like the flash, but I'm not sure what to do about it.
Could you please tell us what camera model this is?
I believe you replaced with new fully charged batteries.
Try changing the memory card. Old defective memory card will delay between shots.
If it still doesnt work, try updating the firmware of the camera.
Hope it helps...

• If you are taking pictures in low light (dim light) and the flash is required, the flash will operate
automatically. A lightning bolt appears on the LCD screen and blinks until the flash is ready.
• While holding the camera steady, press the shutter button to take a picture.
Hint: The flash works best when your picture subject is about 4 ft. - 7.5 ft. (1.22 m - 2.23 m)
from the camera.
• When the batteries are getting weak, the flash will not fully charge and the no flash lightning
bolt appears on the LCD screen. It's time for an adult to change the "AA" (LR6) batteries,
Hope this works!!!
