Flash I have tried all the flash setting, but when I take a pic in the dark the flash does not go off. On screen the AF Shows up and at the upper right corner of the camera the flash lamp indicates that a flash is about to be taken, but the flash does not go off. I have even tried to go throught the reset with no avail. Any suggs?

Flash tube is likely failed,
like a average light bulb is 1000 hours some fail immediately
most camera shops can do the repair, and its a common part
price depends on shop

When I try to take a picture it says


Download any pics from the internal memory that you want to save. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" or "initialize"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and see if things improve. You may need to do the same procedure with the card.

Manual setting is not working, all the pics are too dark?????


I think your camera is fine. The part where you said that the exposure rating was on -2 pretty much gives you the solution. In other words, these settings were somehow changed. The fix is simple. In M or manual mode, with your right thumb, press the tiny round AV button located just outside the upper right-hand corner of the LED screen. While keeping this button pressed, using your right index finger (second finger) adjust the little wheel (located just above and behind the shutter) to the right or left until the exposure is set to O. Now the M setting should be back to normal. Even if you switch to another shooting mode and revert back to M mode, the settings should be retained.

Good luck!

My Nikon D40X won't take pictures, only makes squishy sound


take the batteries out of the camera and the memory card..verify that the memory cards are good by trying them in a printer or another cam..
other thing is you might not be in picture taking mode..you might be in the settings mode..check the user manual if you don't know if you are.

Pics too dark


look at the sensitivity settings (shutter speed), you may have set it too high (set it to auto). Try turning on intelligent exposure to auto/on. Turn intelligent/auto ISO on. Use iA setting for full automatic ono the dial when shooting. As for the message digital pic will go to memory, then that prob means you don't have a SD memory card installed, or it's not formatted, or set to locked.
give those a try.

Sony DSC W50 Camera - Trouble with Flash


Hi, I guess you are using the automatic mode ( not the "P" mode).
You should enable flash only when there is insuffient light. If you use flash in broad day light, your pic will be whited out. If you dont use flash in dark or low light, your pic will be dark or very dark.
So, when it comes of dark, try enabling the flash. If its still dark, increase the flash compensation (the eV value). If its still dark, increase the ISO number.
Hope these help.
cheers,

A red image pops up when I take a pic


I chose the DMC-TZ3A since I didn't know what the letter was at the end of the model number for your particular camera. If this is the camera

Here is a link to the manual

If not

Here is link to the Lumix series cameras

Pg 25 indicates that flashing red in the upper right corner is the battery needing to be recharged. If the battery was recently recharge and its turning red on the screen, it could be that the battery isn't holding a charge and may need to be replaced.

I didn't see any other error messages on the screen indicating that icon unless b,c, or d models have a different error message in that area of the screen.
