The hand icon means you don't have enough light to take a hand-held photo. You need to either increase the light (take the photo in brighter light, such as outdoors in the sun), use flash, or a tripod.

Some cameras have a mode that will let you shoot anyway, but most people are not happy with the blurry photos they get when shooting when the camera warned them with the hand icon so you are better off not using that over-ride mode.

HOW DO I TURN ON THE AUTO MUTE ON A COBRA ESD 8285


When changing the Settings on your detector, please keep in mind: Each time the unit is turned On the factory settings of Highway and Auto Mute-On will be set. They can be changed while the unit is in use as described in the following sections.
Assistance Muting An Alert
Your detector allows you to quickly turn Off an audio Alert by momentarily pressing the Mute button. If you press the Mute button a second time during the Alert, the audio Alert will be turned back On.
Auto Mute Mode Auto Mute will automatically reduce the audio volume of all alerts after four (4) seconds for as long as the signal is detected. The factory setting for Auto Mute is On.
Highway/City Mode Setting your detector to City mode delays all X band audio alerts at lower signal strength levels. (A single beep will sound when the signal is first Notice detected.) This will reduce false alerts while you are driving in, or near, urban areas where there are many sources for conflicting X band signals such as microwave towers and automatic door openers. To change settings, follow the procedure listed below, which indicates what you will see and hear as you complete each step. The factory setting is Highway mode.
Highway Mode City Mode
Mute Button Press and release
To Turn Auto Mute Off X Ka L S
City Button Press and release
Press and release the Mute button while no alert is occurring.

Hi: How do I turn off the beeping signal when the cycle is completed on my Bosch dishwasher? It's a fairly new model, with the control on the top of the door. Thanks, Jean Ferrario


I just tried this and it worked.

The Cycle Completion Signal
this Cycle Completion signal is a tone that sounds to alert you when your dishwasher finishes washing and drying your dishes. You can either disable the tone or set the volume.
to activate:
· press and hold the right “Cancel Drain” button then press and hold the on/off button.
· When the light on the “Cancel Drain” button you are pressing illuminates and the tone begins to sound, release both buttons.
· press the right-most “Cancel Drain” button until the tone is either at the desired volume or is silent.
· press the on/off Button. the Cycle Completion signal is now set.

Vibration alert - blurry pictures


sigswr50,

The vibration alert flashes when the lighting conditions are poor and the flash is turned off. You can still take pictures in this mode and if teh camera is well stable, the pictures will be sharp. In low light conditions like indoors, turn on the flash or set the camera to Auto mode.

sigswr50 and xenolette
You need to let the autofocus time to focus. Press and HOLD the shutter button HALF WAY and wait for the white rectangle on the LCD display to turn green. Then press the button all the way down to take the picture.

Beep


The Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera is programmed to shut off automatically after a few minutes if it is not being used. This helps to conserve battery power. When the camera shuts itself off, it will make a continual beeping sound. To use the camera after it has shut off, simply push the shutter button or self-timer button to take a picture. If you are not going to use your camera, turn the power switch to OFF. The camera will also beep in rapid sequence after you press the self-timer button. The camera will continue to beep in faster sequence until a picture is taken (approximately 10 seconds). A final long beep signals that a picture has been taken. NOTE: It is normal for the camera to beep while downloading photos to a computer.
