Hello Lece, The red light you see is the power indicator. Everytime you insert the battery it should flash. Your problem can appear from 2 causes. One of them is the cameras processor (some processing error that blocked the camera) or a shock received by the camera, it maybe caused one of the small connectors inside to get loose or in the worst case damaged the lens assembly preventing it to initialise properly. First thing to do would be to reset the camera. For doing this, please remove the battery from it and then keep the power button pressed for about 1-2minutes. After that press twice every button on the camera, including the zoom swich or the menu buttons (anything that can be pressed or moved). Leave the camera for half an hour without battery and then press again the power button for 1-2 minutes. You can connect the battery after that and see what happens. If this doesn't work you may need to have it fixed in a service center because it will need to be dissasembled and diagnosticated. If you need more assistance in locating a problem or how to perform this reset you can find me or other experts on the live chat feature on the site or you can post back here. Good luck.

My ps3 turns on but don't show any picture!! HELP ME PLEASE!!


All you have to do is this: While it's off(red light is on) hold down the ON button until it turns on then turns back off. Now just turn it back on normally and it should greet you with display settings. Hope this works!

Wat is a red eye effect?


I've heard this before. this is pertaining to the main board. this starts off as a video card melt down then your main processors gos and then the power board fails. this is a factory flaw in its design and should be replaceable by Microsoft for free. i would exercise the warranty if possible. don't really know why they call it the red eye effect but, we call it here in the shop total meltdown.
