"P" is Program mode. The flash won't pop up in this mode unless you tell it to with the manual flash button.
You might be better off starting in Av (Aperture Priority) mode and choosing the depth of field you want via the aperture setting.
The camera will then pick the shutter timing according to the available light.

Choose a smaller number (=larger aperture) for less depth-of field, meaning the background will appear more blurred.

Choose a larger number (=smaller aperture) for more depth-of-field meaning the background will be more in focus.

My moutrie L50 GameSpy Digital Camera always show a busy signal and it flashes but doesn't take any pictures, what can be the problem?


It only has 32megabytes of capacity built in. It may be full. If you added an SD card for more memory, it likely needs to be formatted for the camera; Especially if you had used the card on a different camera previously.

Clear the memory, and/or format and you should have it working fine.

You can check the overall function of the camera portion by hooking it up to the TV with the cable.

My coolpix s4000's flash isn't working. It works every now and then but is not consistant. The auto flash is on. What should I do? I've only had the camera for 2 months.


The "auto flash" setting lets the camera decide when it may need the flash for a picture, but it is not 100%. You can go to your flash menu and set it for "forced flash" or "always" and it will work every time, provided that you give it enough time to charge. When the flash icon is blinking, the flash is still charging and it will not fire.

On the monitor there is a small little camera


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} That is not coming from the camera...They don't put anything like that out. Check the OSD settings of the device the video is going into. If there is On Screen Display setting with in the device (DVR, MUX, Matrix Switch, ECT)....if that doesn’t work then check the monitor menu to see if its a display feature you can turn off...good luck and let me know if this helps just remember the pelco camera will not push any graphic out except in the case of a PTZ where you will see the Protocol information text...

I can´t make the flash on my samsung s630 work


On many digital cameras the flash is automatic. The camera senses the brightness and decides whether to set the flash ON or OFF. I would like to know what happens when you instruct the camera to always put flash ON irrespective of lighting condition? (You can do that by selecting left button on the circular selection button.. the one with lightning arrow)
Please let me know if that works..

Regards,
Srinivas
