Re: wont turn on!!!

My problem is this; i changed the battery after i had signal that battery should be changed. I changed the batteries with new one but when i press the on/off button, the camera will turn on.

I put in new batteries again and is still the same problem.

How do I turn off this self timer?

I have sony DSC-S500 digital camera i want to know how to take a photograph using self timer thank you Regards Sailaja


For capturing the images using Self Timer, press the Down Arrow control button continuously to select the desired mode. You can set the timer for 10 seconds and 2 seconds by pressing the continuously, If we press the button again the Self Timer will be turned off.

Press the Shutter button, the self-timer lamp flashes and a beep sounds until the shutter operates. To cancel the self-timer, press the down arrow button again. You can redice the risk of blur by using the 2-second delay self-timer.

Good Luck!

Self - Timer - setup!


The manual is a little vague. I'll try to get you going.

1. After turning it on, press the Menu button.
2. Press the up/down arrow buttons until you see the listing for self timer. Press OK.
3. You will need the 10-second option. I'm not certain here whether you need to use the arrows again to choose it, and then press OK again.
4. This should put up a tiny clock icon on the review screen.
5. Set up the camera where you want it, on a tripod or level surface.
6. Press the shutter button. When you do a small LED will blink on the front of the camera. With 2 or 3 seconds left it will blink faster. SMILE!

Just for reference, here is a link to the manual:

Kodak C913 Manual

See pages i, 11, and 24.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya.

Want to shoot a timed pictures ie, a pic of myself and my sister together and me setting the camera on a timer and getting into the pic...what do I do? Don't have manual with me. I have a Canon EOS 40D

Did you know there are two firmware updates available for your camera? For a timer picture, here are the instructions: 1Press the <o> button. (
2Select either <j> or <l>.
Look at the LCD panel and turn the
<5> dial to select <j> or <l>.
j:10-sec. self-timer
l:2-sec. self-timerN
3Take the picture.
Focus the subject and press the
shutter button completely.
The picture will be taken after the
self-timer delay elapses.
You can check the self-timer
operation with the self-timer lamp,
beeper, and countdown display (in
seconds) on the LCD panel.
Two seconds before the picture is
taken, the self-timer lamp will stay on
and the beeper will sound faster.
Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to
start the self-timer. Doing so will throw off the focus.

Does camera have timer

Putting Yourself in the Picture The Self Timer creates a 10-second delay between the time you press the Shutter button and the time the picture is taken. 1 Place the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod. 2 In any Still mode, press the Self Timer button. The Self Timer icon appears in the status area. 3 Compose the scene. Then press the Shutter button half-way and hold to set the exposure and focus, then press the rest of the way down. Move so that you are in the scene. The Self Timer light blinks slowly for 8 seconds (then quickly for 2 seconds) before the picture is taken. The camera "clicks" when the picture is captured. To turn off the shutter sound, see page 64. The Self Timer turns off after you take the picture or if you change modes. To cancel the Self Timer before the picture is taken, press the Self Timer button. (The Self Timer setting remains active.) To turn off the Self Timer, press the Self Timer button twice.

I need to know how to set a shutter delay on a cx4230 Kodak to allow the operator to join the subject group?

David, Since this is a duplicate problem, I'll give a duplicate answer. :-)

It is easiest to link you to your camera manual.

Click on:

Kodak CX4230 Manual

Go to page 20 in the manual for instructions.

While you have it open, save a copy to your computer for future reference.

Here it is if you don't want to do that:

In Capture mode, press the Menu button.

Highlight Self Timer , then press the Select button.

Highlight On, then press the Select button.

Press the Menu button to turn off the menu screen.

Place the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod.

Press the shutter button completely down to take the picture.

The red Self Timer light turns on for 8 seconds, then blinks for 2 seconds. The picture is taken.

Take some good Christmas Pics! Merry Christmas!

Self Timer Won't Work

If you get to the menu part for the timer controls (by pressing more to the right with the 4-way key), slect either 2 or 10 secs with the OK button at the lower riht part of the 4-way key. keep pressing the OK button (about twice more) and you observe that the menu goes back up to a higher hierarchy until it is in the main menu. you have to make sevral Oks - hope it yelps!
