Why does "raise the flash" come on the screen when I turn my coolpix s5090 camera?


I do not know allot about the s5090, but I can give you general information based on how most Nikon pocket cameras are designed to work. If the Nikon is set to one of the automatic modes it is designed to prevent you from taking a picture if it senses that there is insufficient light to get a properly exposed picture. The camera may be telling you to rase the flash because it needs more light. Also, somewhere on your camera there is probably a menu that allows you to choose the flash mode. It may be in your regular menus or, if your camera has a round left-righ-up-down switch on the back, you can select the flash mode by pushing up and then using the right-left keys to choose the flash mode. The mode you select is locked in when you push the button in the center. In general, the modes are automatic (the camera decides when flash is needed), red eye reduction (the flash activates twice; once to cause your subjects eye's iris to close and the second to take the picture), flash always (flashes regardless of the ambient light) and flash off.

My bosch nexxt 100 series washer will not start. The spin, wash and finish indicator lights flash simultaneously when try to start.


Make sure dial is switched to 'off'. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. If if doesn't work, do it again.

To get the clothes out if you are having trouble, open door manually. Near the bottom of this cover is a small hole. Insert a piece of wire into this hole, and push in gently. While pushing, turn the cover clockwise, it will came off. The door release is a narrow white plastic strip hanging down on the right; Pull down on this strip while pushing in on the door, the door lock will release.

Click helped if helped.

There is a lot of red eye on the photos ,please help.I cannot find a red eye reduction button on the camera.


I don't know whether this camera has red-eye reduction. It is likely to be found in the setup for the flash, or as a toggle for the flash setting. On some cameras, you toggle through the available flash settings until the icon (usually a lightening bolt) has an eye next to it.

Red eye reduction is not perfect even if the camera offers it. You get a much better solution by using a photo editing program in the computer to remove red eye from your shots. Many such programs have a function just for this that works almost automatically. You may have gotten a photo editing program with the camera, but there are many others downloadable for free on the net, try www.download.com.

How do I setup the homelink feature in my 2000 chevy impala with my garage opener?


First clear it pushing the 2 outer buttons for about 20 seconds till the lite blinks.
Then here is the weird part take the old remote that you use for your garage door opener and hold it next to the home link in the car.
Push the button on your old remote then the button on the home link. the home link will flash slow then quickly (about 10 sec).
Now go push the learn button on the main door unit then back to the car and push the home link again for 2 seconds.

Don't have owners manual. I how do I setup the


garage door opener that may be different. But, I believe there are 2 ways to do it. Try pushing the button on the back of your garage door opener by the LED. The light will begin flashing for 30 seconds. During this time, it is accepting new signals. So you have to quickly get in your car and push and hold the button you want to work your door. If the opener accepts the signal, it will flash its floodlight. Then just push the homelink button again to see if it raises/lowers the door.

The second way I don't remember quite so well, but I believe you hold the corresponding button on the homelink until THAT starts flashing, then point your remote at it and push that button. The homelink will flash 3 times quickly if it accepts it. I don't think I've ever gotten this method to work, which is why I'm unsure of the procedure.

I've had new and used cars with and without manuals and the first procedure has always worked. It may take a couple of tries, though

Red dye reduction


Hi,
You can find your manual here....www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/zoom/man_c725uz_e.pdf

You find how to disable red eye function on page no: 63 in that manual.

For quick reference i am giving the details briefly,

The flash modes are as follows:

AUTO FLASH:

Automatically fires in low-light and backlight conditions.

RED EYE REDUCTION FLASH:

This mode significantly reduces
the phenomenon of “red-eye”
by emitting about 10 preflashes
before firing the regular
flash. This mode works the
same as the auto-flash except
for the pre-flashes.

To change between flash modes:

1 Press the (flash) switch.
● The flash pops up.
2 Press the / (flash mode) button
repeatedly until the desired flash mode
indication appears.
● The flash mode changes ,
● If / is not pressed within 2 seconds after the selection screen is
displayed, the selection screen disappears.
● To de-activate the flash (Flash Off mode ), push the flash back into the
camera.
3 Press the shutter button halfway.
● When the flash is ready to fire, the
(flash stand-by) mark lights.
4 Press the shutter button all the way.
● The flash fires.


Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Good Luck.

There is a "quick" button located on the back of the camera just for flashes. It is the first button to the right of the power button and it looks like a crooked lightning bolt arrow that points down. If you are in any picture taking mode, push this button and it will toggle you through each flash option, auto, red eye (eyeball symbol), flash (same symbol as the button, this mode will make the flash work everytime you take a picture), red eye and flash, and no flash (careful, in this mode you have to allow for the camera to focus, the lens will stay open a long time in a dark atmosphere -- if you don't hold the camera still you will get a blurry picture).
