Try re-initializing - it's been known to work with same problem.
Go to:
Menu
Setup
Setup 1
Initialize
OK

This will restart the camera. You will then be prompted to enter the date and time settings.

    I had the same problem and did the re-initializing at least 10 times as the error message came back after a couple of pictures taken. Then I didn't touch the camera for a month and went to buy new camera and showed this errror message to the sales guy, did the re-initializing once more and the camera has worked perfectly since then! Have taken about 100 pics with different settings and it's still working. So don't give up on the re-initializing....

Red flashing light in the corner on canon rebel eos t3i


The flashing red light in the bottom right is the indicator that the camera is writing to the memory card. If you have shot in RAW this will take a little longer than recording a jpeg as the RAW files are larger. While this is happening the screen will go blank for a short time.

How to make the sound work


I don't know why I bother to keep answering this particular question, since the few who bother to rate my answer rate it as if they hold me personally responsible for the design of the camera, but here goes anyway:

The ViviCam does not record any sound with its videos. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you can't record it on the camera.

Hi there ...I have the Kodak V803 Digital Camera..a week ago i left the camera in a -10 cold temperature in the glove box in my car..the problem is, when i try to take a shot, after the flash the screen...


1. Try to fully recharge the batteries, and then, use them in camera.

2. Keep your camera in warm environment (not too much close to hot surface) for 2-3 hours.

3. Now, check your camera performance.

please rate me if it helps..tc! :)

Camera flashes two times, but will not record a picture


this sounds like a problem with the sd card either being corrupt and needing formating or being to large. if made in 07 or older it takes 512 mb sd card max if in 08 or newer it will take up to a one gig sd card.

My DSC-F707 won't record images.


Sounds like the CCD has developed a fault. I had a F717 which had similar faults but this turned out to be a batch of faulty CCD's which I know the F707 shared. This maybe why Sony are not keen to get involved as it will cost them money. JVC had a similar problem with some of it's Camcorders using a similar CCD and they replaced them FOC even those well out of warranty. Keep trying with Sony and mention the CCD and serial number of the F707 and see if it is one of the faulty batch.

Flash


Your camera is set at twilnight mode which has the flash suppressed and you won't be able to turn it on because of the fixed setting of twilnight mode to get the proper result of the picture. Due to the mode setting requirement, a shakey hand icon and no flash icon will show. If you press the flash mode button, it beeps. The twilnight setting has a low shutter speed, i.e. the shutter opens longer to allow more lights in, therefore it shows recording to let you know that the shutter is still open, and any moment of the camera will result in a blurred picture.
Now, check your camera mode dial and turn it back to the 'green' camera and see if you can get the flash to fire.

Memory stick

Sony cyber shot camera 2004


Perhaps you have set the camera to a record mode other than Auto. Twilight mode for example, does not activate flash so as to set the camera on a tripod and shoot dark landscapes.

Check your camera record mode, and use auto or portrait mode, which they usually activate flash when there is not enough light.

Hope this helps.
