Question about HP Photosmart R727 Digital Camera

Taking pictures without flash takes a long time

When I take a picture without flash on, it takes about 5-10 seconds before the closes. I have to hold the camera steady to avoid a blurry picture. The wait time is a little less when I am in a bright area, but it still takes much longer than it should. Any suggestions?

You need to change the flash mode. It sounds like you may have "Flash On" (which seems to be a flash-fill mode) when what you need is "Auto Flash". To change the flash mode, press the flash button, then use the right/left arrows to highlight the right option, then menu/OK to select and save the option. Let me know if you need a link to the user manual for more details.

BLURY PHOTOS YELLOW TRIANGLE HAND EXCLAIMATION WARNING SYMBOL


It indicates the shutter speed is too slow for you to hold it by hand without something like a tripod.
Either there's not enough light in the conditions you're taking the pictures in, or you need to try changing the settings on the camera, such as increasing the ISO setting, or light sensitivity, so it can use a faster shutter speed.
If it's close range, turn on the flash.
If you can't change the settings, you can try bracing your hand against a fixed object so that the camera doesn't move, and just gently squeeze the button to take the picture. Novices frequently jab the shutter release to take pictures, which will cause blurry pictures from the camera moving.

Can't take a picture without abundant light


Does it work okay in bright sunlight without a flash? If so, try changing the options to factory default.

Flash will not "fire".


The camera has a "motion detector". And is generally for taking pictures automatically whenever a "subject", such as wild game, come within the detector.
That flash is for taking pictures of subjects less than 12 ft away and not a darkened area beyond 12 ft.

If you are using it to automatically capture in the evening, then point the camera lower, like to the ground 12 ~ 20 feet away. It will shoot some nice, but somewhat grainy pictures!

If you are holding the camera to take pictures, it wasn't designed for that, but it will work for "close" shots.

Flash busy signal


This is perfectly normal, the flash uses short burst of electricity that are stored in a large state capacitor. This has to be recharged after so many pictures. You can go as fast as the SD card will allow even if the flash is charging, simply close the flash and continue taking photos without it, no effect apart from loss of some illumination depending on the conditions.

When using flash, my sony cyber-shot dsc-t10 takes forever to take pictures!


Have you tried Hi-Speed memory cards, as writing speed of the card affects the response time of camera, I am using Sony MSX-M2GN 2GB and it's gives me quite good response.

Other thing you might try is format the memory card using camera, camera has card format functionality and it does also improve the performance of the camera.

Camera not taking pictures


The camera may be trying to tell you that your flash is turned off in Auto mode, but to get a proper exposure you will need the flash turned on. Try turning the flash on and see if that works.

Hope this helps!

Using flash freezes up camera


When taking pictures, you must really be allowing time for the camera's flash to be charged
before you could take another picture so that camera will have enough time to rest and it
could function normally.
But if the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like flash will not work properly.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Be in AUTO mode
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Turn it on and take a picture.
When you want to have just the AUTO FLASH.

- Rotate the mode dial to PROGRAM
- Press the LEFT/FLASH button until you've seen the
LIGHTNING icon with the Letter A on the leftmost part of the screen
- Try to take a picture by pressing and holding the shutter button
halfway first for 3-5 seconds and then press it all the way down

If it still does not work, you need to contact the Manufacturer.

Canon A540 flash charge not holding


Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to a advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
