Change the lithium battery for the clock. It is found on the bottom of the camera. It is usually a CR2016, you can find it at any where watch batteries are sold

I have a Sony Cyber-shot Super Steady Shot DSC-T10. I have 2 babies under 2 years old and every time they are doing something adorable I can't get the shot because my delay on my camera is so long they are...


It seems the Red-eye reduction feature of the flash is ON. In this mode, the camera emits a pre-flash and then the actual flash discharges after a delay. Or it could be on Slow Sync. In this, the flash fires at the end of the exposure. Just go to Flash modes (the lightning-like icon) and if it is showing an eye-like icon or the word 'slow', change it to some other mode, probably the flash ON or OFF mode. Also, make sure that the batteries are fully charged.

If this solves the issue, please rate this solution.

The flash does not work all of the time.


Hi Franzelli,

The flash has three settings.
  1. On
  2. Auto
  3. Off
It is likely set to auto. On this setting the camera decided if there is enough light.

Icon is sort of a lightning bolt with a small 'A'.

Set it to on and it will flash for every shot.

The down side is the batteries wear out faster.

Best regards
Mike

Flashing battery icon


Battery is shot, time for a replacement. Keep in mind that a Dell battery can aquire a dead short, this won't hurt the system, but it can keep the machine from starting up. If you find that your machine won't start up try pulling the battery.

After one frame battery icon flashes ( battery is full charged)


The problem is with the electric contacts between the battery and the camera. You can try cleaning them with a clean pencil eraser. Make sure you don't leave any eraser debris in the battery compartment. It is best to do this while holding the camera so that the battery compartment door is "down" so that any eraser debris will fall out of the door onto the table rather than fall into the compartment.

Flash is not working


The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).

Battery life


Are you keeping the large LCD screen on all the time? If so, that will dramatically reduce battery life. Same goes for flash use (although for 8 shots shouldn't be a factor) and constant stabilization. Also, by low battery do you mean that the camera is turning itself off and can't be turned back on? If just the icon is showing low battery life, it could be that the sensor wrong. I have an MP3 player that will say it has zero battery power, but will really play for another two hours. You should be able to take many more than 8 shots with one battery. I've taken 500 photos over a period of nine days on one battery with my FZ10. Viewfinder only, stabilization only when shooting, no flash use.
