A red lightning arrow keeps flashing on the screen and the camera isn't doin anything,what can the problem be?


Hi.

A red flashing lightening bolt can mean different things on different camera's. The most common are that you are too far away from the object you want to take a picture of. That the flash on the camera needs to be turned off and that the flash itself is charging up and won't allow a picture to be taken.

Try turning the flash off and see if it will let you take a picture.




Regards.

Need instruction on how to put the flash for vivitar vivicam 8025


Repeatedly touch the lightning bolt function area to cycle through the flash modes. Lightning bolt with a letter "A" is automatic (camera decides whether flash is needed), lightning bolt is forced flash (always flashes), eyeball is red-eye reduction, lighting bolt in circle with slash through it is off (never flashes).

Can i turn the flash off on my camra and if yes how. I bought the cara off a friend and she the booklet that came with it dont know any thing about this canon 600


To turn the flash off, press the right side of the ring shaped controller on the back of the camera where you see a lightning bolt icon. Each time you press it, you will see an icon pop up for a different option -- Auto (bolt with A), Auto with red eye reduction (icon of an eye), red eye reduction with flash on (eye and lightning bolt), On (just the lightning bolt), and Off (bolt with a "no" circle around it).

You can download the manuals (Basic and Advanced) for the SD600 here. I understand that there is a problem with the downloads that should be repaired within the next couple of days. If you want a manual sooner, you can download the manual for the European version of this camera (IXUS 60) here.

My camera won't take pics it just keeps flashing a red lightning bolt what is this


The red lightning is the flash trying to charge (probably a weak battery or an old one) and it won't snap a picture until it does.(which won't happen with a weak battery).

How to turn off flash


Press the button with the picture of a lightning bolt. Watch the screen for a lightning bolt with a line through it...that means it's off.

Red flashing lightning bolt on the screen


That is the flash charging indicator blinking constantly on the screen. Unfortunately the camera will need to be sent to Olympus for service as this is a switch inside the camera that needs to be replaced. I would call Olympus Customer Service for repair process and pricing information. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Won't take picture


If the lightning bolt continues flashing and never stops there is a failure in the flash sub-system. Try selecting the no-flash setting, if the camera fires normally at this point then your problem is definitely in the flash system. It is hard to say what the failure is beyond that. The problem is the camera will not take the picture until the flash is charged and ready to fire - the flashing lightning bolt indicates that it is charging the flash. The fact that it just keeps flashing indicates that the flash is never becoming ready. This repair could cost $68 to $125 plus parts to fix, although an evaluation would be necessary to identify the problem.
