Hi. Based on your brief description of the problem I would think that the camera is failing to focus and the flashing red light in the viewfinder is the auto-focus indicator, make sure that the red auto-focus indicator is positioned in the centre of the viewfinder initially until you have experience of using it (to do this consult your camera manual) focus on a subject that has some contrast ie a red brick wall, grass or pebbles on a beach.

My camera turns off with the lens half way in, and when i try to turn it on it makes a beeping sound and the red light flashes . the screen stays blank/black, whats the problem how can i fix it??????


Hi, it could be that the lens got some dust or even sand particles between the lens covers. You might need to take it in to your local camera repair shop for a more detailed answer, but I had the same issue with my lens cover that only closed half.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Camera will not power on


HI,

The battery contacts are dirty.

The batteries are inserted wrongly.

You have a problem with the lens mechanism.

Shake camera and listen for anything rattling around. If metal it could short anything out.

When I try to turn on my FinePix A600 is beeps, the lens comes out, the light on the back flashes yellow, then it flashes red, the lens goes back in and the camera turns off. I bought a second FinePix...


I'm curious....the camera came out in 2006....how did you buy a second one?...and more importantly, why? If something doesn't work, the first thing people do isn't to go out and buy another one. Anyway, from your description, the problem seems to lie with the cards, not the camera. All memory cards must be formatted (sometimes called "initialized") in the camera before use and regularly after downloading the pics to the computer. This erases the card and brings it back to original condition so download any pics you want to save using a separate cardreader if necessary and then, format/initialize them in the camera.Also, how old are these cards?....they don't last forever.

I don't see why people love this camara... I usually have it on portrait mode because any other mode will make my pics blurry. When I have it on portrait mode when i take my pics it flashes twice (i dont...


In portrait mode the pre-flash helps prevent red-eye in your pictures. You can set the flash to do this in other modes. As far as improving your pictures, are you pressing the shutter button half-way and allowing the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way or do you just press the button all the way every time hoping to get lucky?

My camera wont turn on when i try the amber light flashes and it makes 3 beeps then nothing the batterys full but iam able to load pics on the computer by plugging the cable in


The 3 beeps probably means your lens has failed.
I would guess the lens extends only about half way.

I was quoted $US80 for replacement.

I shall probably give it to my 2 year old as a toy and save up for a better camera.

Camera memory card errors/computer doesn't recognize


Can you get a memory card reader that works for a Mac? If so then loading pic's to the 'puter through that route Flashing red and green lights have a meaning- what does the manual say?[Check the more comprehensive manual on the Software disk] You could buy[or borrow] another card- nothing wrong with having more that one. Also try the card in another camera and a fresh card in yours[Take it a photo shop to try this]

Shutter will not close. Appears to be locked with shutter out. Slider is ok. Not batteries. Cannot take a photo. Nothing shows up on quick view. Red light blinks for a short time. Makes a beep sound....


it´s normal in that kind of cameras it can be fine but after u shoot one pic with flash will happen the same, to fix the problem u will need to send it to a repair centre, they will isolate some stuff inside to prevent that from happening.
