Before the peak of action press the button halfway to focus and meter. When the action peaks, press the button the rest of the way.

That will get rid of much of the delay. A higher-end camera (like a DSLR) will have even less delay, but will cost more money.

Bad push buttom, or something inside the buttom, like any cola or kool aid between the push buttom.
Try to check if the push power buttom it´s working.

How do I set the camera so I don't have a delay, I try to take a picture and there seems to be a delay and I miss the shot.


This is a common situation with almost all point-and-shoot cameras. The delay is because the camera has to do so much when you push the button. Bulkier and more expensive SLRs eliminate the delay by having more hardware to handle the various tasks.

You can reduce the delay by anticipating the action. If you know where the action is going to happen (a child blowing out the candles on a cake, or right in front of a soccer goal, for example) aim the camera there and press the shutter button halfway and hold it there. This meters the exposure and focuses the lens. Then when the action finally happens, press the shutter button the rest of the way. With the camera having done most of the work when you pressed the button halfway, there will be much less delay.

Again, the delay is a basic "feature" of the camera design. It can't be completely eliminated, but by pressing the shutter release halfway it can be reduced.

Setting timer on window unit to turn on and off


Hi Jessica Yacopino - Generally speaking, Frigidaire air conditioners timer option typically have the same procedure. The unit must be in the ON position for the timer delay stop option. For delay start, the unit must be in the OFF position. First, press time button. Then to adjust timer setting, tap or hold the UP arrow or the DOWN arrow to change delay timer at .5 hour increments, up to 10 hours, then by 1 hour increments up to 24 hours. The control will count down the time remaining until start (8, 7.5, 7, etc.). The Delay Start mode automatically selects cooling with maximum Fan Speed. The temperature maintained will be the same as previously set. To change the set temperature, press "COOL" then Up or Down arrows until the desired temperature is indicated on the display. After 5 seconds, the control will automatically change the display back to the hours remaining until the unit will start/stop. PRESSING the unit On/Off button at any time will cancel the Delay Start/Stop function. The Delay Start/Stop Feature will work until the unit either starts or stops. Once that happens the above steps have to be repeated again.

How do i take a time delay pic with my canona550 camera


I don't have your exact same camera but on mine you push the menu button, go to tolls and you'll see settings like +1 , +5 +10 these are the delay times once you select one you push the shutter and mine beeps and then beeps faster as it gets closer to the time out and then it takes the picture ( this is handy for taking pictures of yours elf and mine has a little light on the front that flases as it counts down and it stops after to takes the picture.

I'm driving from work and all gauges fail, checked fuses, gigled key in ignition, nothing. help


This has happened to me before also. After some research, I found that this is a common problem with this model. When the gauges stop working, push your odometer reset buttom. May take a few times but oddly enough it works great.

There is a long delay taking pictures


Check to see if the self-timer is on. You can set the timer to 0, 2, or 10 sec. A 2 sec. delay will help to prevent blurry pictures. But setting the self-timer to 0 will take the picture as soon as you push the button.
