Troubles Turning Camera On


What kind of camera is this? I suggest calling the company such who will take time on the phone and work with you to fix the issue. Didn't have the same problem but have a Nikon and they assisted me over the phone almost an hour working with me to solve the issue.

I just bought a tasco trail camera. I set it up by the manual that came with it. It will take a couple of pictures and then it seems to shut off. If I take the batterys out and reinstall them it will work...


Hi.

Are the batteries fully charged? It is recommended that you fully charge the batteries first before you use the camera as the camera can literally eat batteries.

If you have fully charged the batteries and the camera still only allows you to take a few shots then I suggest that you take/send the camera back and have it replaced.




Regards.

Built-in flash not working


Please shoot in P mode. In P mode it will use the flash if you pop it up and not use it if it is down.

The flash uses LOTS of battery power. If you battery is weak the flash may take a long time to recycle (charge).

The Flash must be popped up and READY before you can use it. The flash is charged or READY when the RED light is on.

I hope this helps.

Problem with taking picture with SD card


The only thing I can recommend is using the brands of memory cards that Casio recommends. They are Panasonic, San Disc, Toshiba. Make sure the card is formatted with the camera before use.

Screen works in playback mode but turns off in camera mode as if batteries are going dead.


For some reason, Fuji does not emphasize that if your batteries get low, this is what happens. You just need recharged batteries or new batteries. Be careful with rechargables--before recharging them when this happens, you first have to drain them using the discharge mode of your camera. Then they will take a complete charge. (Good for some 300 charges or so, I believe.) But if you don't discharge them first, they will take less and less of a charge, and last shorter and shorter. If you use regular batteries, they might not last for 50 pics before running out of juice.

Camera only works for a short while with battery


I guess this is a battery problem. Get to the nearest Canon authorised service center and then have them lend you a battery to test . This way, atleast you can isolate the problem.

Battery Problem


It sounds like you either have a bad battery, battery charger or maybe the battery has dirty connections. Try another set of batteries and if it still happens let me know. BMW
