Problem with flash and a blinking message

When I turn on my camera, immediately on the screen "E:91:01" is blinking in white letters as well as an upside down arrow which blinks as well. Whenever I try to take pictures, the flash does not work. What can I do to fix this?

    I have this problem and I have the tried to reset my camera using the "initialize" function on the menu. It seems to me like the flash is having trouble charging, camera works fine without flash. Anyone have an alternate solution?

I have also a DSC-W30 and I tried to basically reset to the default settings, going to Menu button, (Right Arrow), Setup, Down Arrow (2 times),Select with round button,Scroll down to Initialize and select OK.

You must inizializate your camera, but dont leave time adjusting the date. When your camera restart select any date quickly, then change the camera to the ISO option, to desactivate the flash temporarily, then change to AUTO option, and desactivate the flash. For the moment is the best option. Te problem may be ocasionated because your camera was in wet area and ocasionate a shortcut, but you need to verify if the problem is in the flash card, in any terminal, or in the motherboard.

Camera turns on then off immediately


Make sure that you are installing a fresh/ full charge battery
Remove the battery
Clean the metal contacts on the battery using a clean cloth

Pls test with an alt. batt.
If you do not have access to a dif. battery.
Pls. take the batt out of the camera. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the batt. If not you will need to order a No power repair.

LCD screen flashing


Hi!
This is a feature and not a defect of the K100D. You can turn this off by going to the menu and going into the second tab (playback menu). Once there, go to preview display, where you will have 3 options - off, histogram and brighten areas. Set this to off (your camera is set to brighten areas, that is why the white parts of your photos appear to be blinking).
Hope this helps!

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.

Canon A 630 no flashing


Right now Canon's support section for their website is down.

What I'm looking for is to see if the flash was turned off by the control panel accidently. Most digital have a setting to turn it off.

Typically if the camera needs a flash and can't give you one you will get a warning message on the screen. If thats whats happening, then the sensor is working.

Sometimes weak batteries will cause the flash not to work because there may be enought current to run the screen and the shutter but not enough to run the flash at the same time. If you say the batteries are fine then that probably isn't the case.

If you have the book handy you might want to check the control panel settings and find the flash controls.

Turning off after taking a picture with a flash


Sorry but that is just because the flash is recharging.. It turns the screen off so it can charge the flash faster.. No worries it works fine :)
