D 90 nikon will not take any pictures and it is blinking r 05


What exposure mode(s)? What focus mode(s)?

Set the camera to Manual exposure (turn the mode dial to "M") and turn off the autofocus (switch the lever on the front from "AF" to "M"). Does the camera take a picture now? Don't worry about getting a proper exposure or focus. We're just trying to see whether the camera takes a picture at all.

What does the switch on the side mean


If you mean the switch marked with a flower and a mountain, that's the macro/normal switch. The flower position puts the camera in macro mode, for taking pictures of things very close to the camera. This mode lets the camera focus close, and disables the flash. The mountain position puts the camera in normal mode, for most picture-taking.

Canon powershot A520 doesn't work in camera mode. I can look at and edit pictures in viewing mode, but switching to "camera" won't let me take pictures... in this mode it also lets me view pictures already...


Hi!
Do other buttons work? If so, the switch could be broken because it sounds it doesn't switch to the CAMERA mode, just stays at the VIEW mode.
If you're not experienced in repairs, you should give it to a local repair shop or Canon service center.

Sorry for the bad news. I repair these cameras very often.

Cannot take picture


Check the switch on the side of the lens, it should be in "AF" not "M". The switch turns the motor in the lens on and off. If the switch is set to "M" the automatic mode on the camera will not work.

Camera still possessed


There is something wrong with the settings of the camera.
When it is on setting or view mode is fine. It is not supposed to take pictures.
Go thru the Menu and pick the way you want your pictures, size and all those details, switch them take pictures and keep switching the settings until you get it right.

My camera was taking 3 pictures at the time, and it was because of the setting was set to do that. Don't be afraid of changing the setting for pictures, you can always change and try different things, digital pictures can be erased right away. So you can try as much as you want.
Try all options in the setting for taking a picture, change a setting, try to take a picture and see what happens. Then try on another setting and so on.

DSC-W100 "Shaky Hand" icon and taking infrequent pictures


You restarted it by turning it off and on again?

Try re-initializing your camera. Menu --> Setup 1 --> Initialize "OK"

I hope that helps.

As for switching back to camera mode, that could be your selector switch. Mine is weird to, it takes pics fine but the selector switch is touchy and thinks i'm turning it when I'm not. It does this most often in Auto mode, probably because I use it most. You might try putting it in another mode before reviewing pics.
