This normally means that the images will be blurred. Have you turned off the flash? If so, turn it on. If you don't want to use the flash, use a tripod or a higher ISO to prevent images appearing blurred.

Sounds like the warning of low shutter speed end therefore the tanger to get "hanshake" blur captured. Use flash if possible or highter ISO setting or steady hands ;)

How do i turn the internal flash on


There is a button on the side of the mirror box with the flash symbol. Pushing that should cause the flash to go up except if it is set on the 'green rectangle' on the mode dial, in which case the camera will cause the flash to go up in low light situations automatically

Wont take pictures


It's saying you have too much light for the setting. This usually happens when you have the still shot setting on night (low light) pictures.

Adjusting to "auto" should fix this.

With a new set of batteries in camera the red battery low symbol


Try cleaning the contact points in the battery compartment. If one or more of the contact points are soiled, the camera will react like that. If the problem is due to a short circuit, the batteries will get very hot, if they are discharged after a few seconds.

Pictures are blurry


this is a symbol for a low light condition. Either increase the light by opening curtains using in-direct light or just use a flash.

What is AF on my camera?


A bit more detail would be helpful to diagnose your specific problem: what mode is the camera in, does it do it all the time or only in certain situations.

There are a few situations when the autofocus does not do well: focus too close to the subject, or in a very low light situation, or the subject is gray. Check that you are not affected by any of these.

Otherwise, try to find if there is something wrong with your camera: find someone else with the same camera (or one in a store display), and see if following the same steps gives you the same result.

It should also have two red hands gently cupping the camera from below. It's just telling you that you're in a low light situation. With the current mode setting of the camera (night scene, no flash, etc...) you'll need to hold the camera extra steady to avoid a blurred picture.

"Shake" warning symbol won't leave screen.


That shake warning will appear whenever the camera is in a low-light situation where the shutter speed is low and the images may blur. If it's coming on even in bright light, maybe you set the shutter speed to a fixed low setting? Either way, you may be able to shut off the warning in the settings of the camera.
