Question about Nikon Coolpix 7600 Digital Camera

2 Answers

After every picture I have to turn camera off to take another

My camera has just gone wonky in the past 24 hours. Everytime I take a picture, I have to turn the camera off to get it to take a new one. On the right side of the lcd screen there is a flashing red square that looks like it might be a clock. I don't recall this from before. I have reset all factory defaults and checked all the settings, everything seems fine other than this. Pictures are being saved, but turning it off after every picture is becoming rather annoying. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Re: After every picture I have to turn camera off to take...

My Nikon Coolpix hasn't been out of the box since Christmas. Now I turn it on and it says "lens error" and a red triangle with exclamation point. I've looked over the internet, and most places say its from being dropped or dust or sand inside the lens. I tried the air blower, tapping it gently, but still no luck. Any other clues, besides it just going in the trash and buying a new one?

The red clock means to things :

time and date are not set or the battery that keesp the time and date is drained and needs to be replaced (you can't do that yourself)

Lcd screen gone wonky

This sounds like the screen is damaged. When you are taking the photo, can you see the image clearly. If not, the screen is damaged and you need to replace the screen.
If you can, however, see the image clearly, then check that your settings aren't putting on any effects

Olympus C-765 - won't take photos anymore. Memory card is fine and camera has worked perfectly for the past two years. Does anybody have a solution? The camera seems to function as normal, but when I press...

Reset the menus to default or factory settings.
Then test the camera again.
Make sure that the battery is fully charged or new.
You might consider to buy a new battery (Ebay is a good place) for this camera. Then test.
Problems like this can show up when the battery is weak or not fully charged.
You may try to remove the battery for 24 hours and then after try it again.

Problems with my samsung L200 digital camera

How old are the batteries? They could be toast, so check with new ones...can you power it with an AC adapter to make sure the camera works? If not check the manuel for any settings you could have actuated like a timer or sleep mode.
Check what "mode" its in...some cameras can be switched to different modes that will affect functions...including taking pictures.

Has it gone from cold to hot temp or vice versa in this time period? If could have condensation inside and shut down for self whatever can be opened on the camera and let it sit indoors at room temp for a few hours.

If none of that works....take it back to where you bought it if possible and talk to the manager.
