It means the camera is using a slow shutter speed and may blur.

You might have the camera set to an inappropriate 'scene' mode. If you are using 'landscape' or 'snow' for an indoor or night shot for example, the camera will select a slow shutter speed which will increase the chance of blur - hence the warning.

If you keep the selector switch all the way to the left (auto mode) you should be fine in most situations. Only use the 'scene' modes for specific purposes.

I have a hand symble on my Protax camera screen what does this mean?


This will happen in low light conditions. It means you should hold the camera very steady when taking a photo, as the camera will be using a long exposure, meaning the photo will blur if the camera is not held very still, or if something moves while taking the photo.

My on screen view is showing a hand held up with a red slash across it


Hello,

On my Kodak camera, it means the camera was not steady when the picture was taken, so the picture could be blurred.

Hope this helps

My camera won't take pictures with the flash on and when i try the red light just blinks. only takes pictures with no flash.


When your flash light (I mean the part that gives the flash) or the capacitor that stores the power for the flash are defect. you won't see a flash. When a red light comes on, when actually the flash should fire, the most likely the capacitor is defect. The electronics sensed it could not reach the voltage needed to fire the flash.
It also could mean your battery can't deliver enough to charge the capacitor, but is that was the case the battery indicator should tell you.

Camera will not take photo


I don't know which shooting mode you are in, but the red shaking camera icon indicates that based on the settings that your camera is in, you may experience camera shake (which is your image stabilizer or "is" in action). The yellow blinking indicator light means that your camera is having a hard time achieving proper exposure and that the shutter speed with be slowed down to reach a proper exposure. Extending the shutter speed means that you are at risk for camera shake (i.e. blurry image).
Solutions for this are:
  • increase ISO
  • use a tripod
  • use flash
Hope this helps!

Try replacing the SD card first..sometimes that can be a culprit.
If that does not resolve the issue, try tapping a corner of the camera on the palm of your hand a couple of times. (I hear swearing while doing this helps..LOL)
If neither of them works, then yu either have a faulty CCD sensor, or faulty connector ribbons to the LCD display. Since you said you just got the camera a week ago, if the first two solutions don't work, then you best get the camera replaced under warranty.

Hope that helps! Oh yes, please do not forget to assign a fixya rating as a show of appreciation for my help. Rating here are everything, you know :)

Cheers and good luck!
