I do not think my camera has fallen, but it now has a warning symbol on it that looks like a hand with an exclamation sign beside it. At the same time, my camera is not taking good pictures, so I assume the warning is related. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks!
Re: Blinking hand and exclamation point- less focus
I had that same problem for quite some time. Finally tonight I reset the camera on the little button by the memory card. I've taken about 20 shots where I've purposely had my subject moving around and taken the shot (not caring to hold dead still). So far - a DRASTIC improvement. I'm sooooo excited and hope it's a permanent fix!!!

If it's an exclamation point inside a triangle, it's called a master warning symbol. This is the MasterWarning Lightsymbol. If this light is on, there will likely be text displayed as well on the instrument panel, or another warning light. Look for text in particular. It could very well point out something as serious as low oil pressure. If the engine is not running, you can't very well check your gauges, but you may have lost all oil pressure or overheated the engine. Recommend you consult a mechanic familiar with your model.
A yellow explanation point symbol on the dashboard typically applies to the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. A thick ! inside a half drawn flat tire symbol to be complete and comes in yellow color when lit. Under normal vehicle set-up, if this indicator stays lit after the power-on selftest, you need to check your tires for any uneven pressures and adjust their pressures to correct specifications. Okay? : )
A red exclamation point inside a circle when lit indicates your parking brake is on, or your brake fluid level is low.
Since your question is listed as a 1999 Saturn SL and a Toyota 4Runner, I will answer both:
1999 Saturn SL Typically the orange exclamation point dash warning light is indicating a problem with your brakes, parking or hand brake. Check to ensure that your emergency brake is completely disengaged.
Check to ensure proper brake fluid level.
Otherwise this could be indicating a problem with the ABS system.
04 Toyota 4Runner
Low tire air pressure. Inflate to approximately 32 PSI should correct your problem.
I just looked it up in my manual, and the exclamation mark with the waving hand means: 'There is a strong likelihood of camera shake because the shutter speed is slow.' The remedy to this is: 'Use flash photography. However, use a tripod for some scenes and modes.'
It sounds like you need to adjust your shutter speed. I'm no expert and I consult my manual often, so if you need any assistance doing this or anything else, feel free to ask.
