    When I try to take a picture it says it is charging flash, I turn off flash and it does the same. Replace batteries and left it on thinking it does need to charge from the battery, but no luck

    I have the same problem with one identical camera. The "charging flash" will stay forever and I can't take any pictures. I was able to delete the contents from the flash card, but that's all. Xavier

  2. Wait for the screen with the three Android images to appear, and then release the POWER and VOLUME DOWN buttons.
  3. Press VOLUME DOWN to select FACTORY RESET, and then press the POWER button.

My camera is several years old. The flash stopped working. I replaced the batteries. Any ideas?


Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

My i phone wont hold is charge i have try lots of charges but is not charging


I had this exact problem too - same as the first two posts anyway.

It seems to be just a software issue and was easily resolved for me with a full power off and reboot. Here is how to do that safely.

Plug in the phone using the wall socket charger, leave it for a few hours to get a charge (i know it doesn't look like its charging). Later, press the on/off button. The battery icon appears with just a thin red line. Let it go back to black. Then press the the on/off button and the menu button simultaneously for about 8 seconds. A red button should appear on the screen with a question asking if you want to power off the phone. Say yes. (I think it was a slide bar, but can't remember now.) Wait a few secs while the phone powers off. Then remove the power plug from the phone. Now reinsert the power plug. After a few (worrying) seconds of nothing, a white Apple logo appears in the middle of the screen, a few more seconds and the iphone main menu appears. No data has been lost, no settings are altered, and best of all, the battery shows a full charge and seems to be back to normal again.

My flash does not seem to be working, I tried just about everything but it wont work. it all started when I pressed reset im pretty sure, but im not postive. please help me.


Pressing reset would not disable your flash. On the screen, does a lightning bolt icon appear? Is there a letter A or the word auto next to it? Or does the lightning bolt have a diagonal line through it? In any case, press the button on the back of your camera with the picture of the lightning bolt until the lightning bolt with "A" or "auto" appears next to it on the screen.

Files cannot be deleted or moved to the device because "the device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected".It is a Sony NWZ E436F.


Reset the Walkman by pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds. Then, try transferring or deleting any files from it. Furthermore, if the issue persists then try formatting the internal flash memory.

Follow the steps given below to format the internal flash memory of the Walkman:

Press and hold the Back/Home button in the Pause mode until the Home menu appears.
Press the up/down/left/right button to select Settings, and then press the >|| button to confirm.
Press the up/down/left/right button to select "Common Settings," and then press the >|| button to confirm.
The list of "Common Settings" options appears.
Press the up/down/left/right button to select "Format" and then press the >|| button to confirm.
"All data including songs will be deleted. Proceed?" message will appear.
Press the up/down button to select "Yes," and then press the >|| button to confirm.
"All data will be deleted. Proceed?" message will appear.
Press the up/down button to select "Yes," and then press the >|| button to confirm.
While the memory is being formatted, an animated display appears. When initialization finishes, "Memory formatted." message appears.

How do i get brighter pictures


There are only two options for adjusting the brightness of pictures in this camera, exposure and flash setting.

1. Flash Options: The flash is off by default. To turn it on you must press the button with the crooked down-arrow label between the DISP and MENU buttons, and the flash status will display in the top right-hand corner of the display screen. OFF displays the crooked down-arrow and a circle with a line through it. Press the button once for AUTO, displays the crooked down arrow with an "A" next to it. Press the button once more to force the flash, displays the crooked arrow only in the top right-hand display. Regardless of mode, the display will blink rapidly while the flash is charging and remain solid when it is charged and ready for use. Keep pressing the crooked down-arrow button to scroll continuously through the three OFF/AUTO/ON options.

2. Exposure setting: Press MENU, then the left arrow on the top right-hand four-way button on the camera until the COLOR menu is selected. Scroll down to EXPOSURE and press the MENU button again. You will see EV on the display. Use the up and down arrows to increase or decrease the exposure setting. 0.0 is default, you can go up to +1.5 or down to -1.5. Press MENU to exit when you're done. +1.5 would be the maximum brightness setting.

My camera wont click (take pictures)


try replacing the batteries with new ones, and if it persists you should contact casio customer support. hopefully you're still within the warranty period, because they will over charge even on minor repairs(they all do). there is a problem with the shutter mechanism, either electronic in nature, or mechanical. the click you're hoping to hear is the shutter release, and its not releasing. give them a call, get a repair estimate, and if its too high try finding a repair person with good hands that wants to have a go at it. nothing but good luck ;]
