DSC T90 digital cam While taking pictures of any small movement, the picture blurs or shakes. Please give me solution to fix this problem

To remove the blur from photos, you need to be in a place where there is enough light to have a fast shutter speed. Using the camera indoors without the flash on will usually result in blurry photos.
Try using the flash.

Holding the camera with two hands or even better, on a tripod, will help too.
Happy shooting!

Hello, the flash don't work with the shutter in all mode P A ... and the image are under exposed : there is no flash light on the photo. Thanks for your help, José , in FRANCE

My experience with these power shots is the flash capacitor unit witch draws current from the battery, Fills up then activates the flash is what your primary issue is.

please do be considerate and leave ratings or feedback before you leave, Thanks

How do I set vivitar 5199 to take close up photos of artwork? The flash in each flash setting spoils the photos and indoor photos without the flash some up AVI

this is a cheaper camera so most likley will not be able to do so. these cameras have trouble focusing up close. but its worth a try. You can go on to to find instruction on how to make a home made diffuser for your flash from a milk jug. Hope this helps -Richard

Daytime photos are very white and has horizontal lines.


If ever you haven't tried resetting the camera, please try it first. It's possible that you or somebody using the camera may have set something on the camera's setting to have this result ( this is based on my own experience :D ).

Anyway, here's how you reset your camera:

This will basically set the camera to default settings. If there is no hardware problem with the camera, this will correct the problem. However, if the problem persist after the reset , you may want to bring the camera in a service center for repair.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

My flash has stopped working


Unfortunately you will either need to replace the flash unit... or if you're unlucky the main PCB. I don't think you will be able to do anything without either of those parts.

I have made my living running a digital camera repair business for several years now, wish I had better news for you about your camera. If we can help with the repair let us know.

Good luck: Darntoothysam com

Olympus Camedia C-4000 Flash Problems.. Help Please!

The flash is malfunctioning and causing the camera to not work, the flashing lights in the viewfinder is the camera indicating the malfunction. Most likely it is a board that needs repair and that'll cost a flat rate minimum $160 from OLY.
