What the icon is actually trying to show you is that the pictures are "broken". The camera cannot read the file on your card. Try removing your card and reinserting it then see if you can access the pictures. If not try removing the card and putting it into your PC card reader, using an adapter if you must. See if the PC can read the files. If it can, save the files to the PC. After the files are saved, format the card. If formatting the card does not work it is probably defective. If you can't read the files using the PC card reader, try formatting the card anyway and then test it with your camera. If it continues to show you the broken picture icon, buy a new car. I use Sandisk cards and have never had a problem with one. I have had an occasional trouble with card readers and re-inserting the card once or twice allowed the card to be read.

The flash does not work and shows a red lightening bolt in the viewfinder. I can still take pics without the flash needed


Two possible causes: 1. Your battery is weak. 2. You have the flash turned off. Press the button with a picture of a lightning bolt and watch the screen to see if it changes. Stop when you see the bolt and an "a".

Camera does not show taken ( saved) pictures


problem is in memory card...i think. try with cleaning memory card contacts. use pure alcohol and small piece of cotton to clean dust or other dirt. if this not help, try some card reader to transfer images from camera to PC. try also with some other camera. it's possible memory card is damaged and you can't do nothing. try reinstall nikon software on your PC.

KODAK eASYSHARE c530 BLACK SCREEN DOES NOT TAKE PICTURE


You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

No picture display when taking shot. Blank pictures produced when shot taken.


Solution:
Ebay has used cameras (DX4530) for about $75.00 with shipping. Kodak's repair service for these cameras is done by mailing in the camera -- and the baseline starting price is about $140.
I'm planning to go to Ebay and buying from a seller with a good track record and reputation.

Canon Power shot sd 1000


what u have to do is when u are going to take the picture click on the little lightening bolt next to the func. set button. 2 pictures will pop up- one of a lightening bolt and another with a lightening bolt with a slash through it. hit the lightening bolt button again and it will select the slashed lightening bolt picture. this will turn flash off to turn it back on go back to the screen with the 2 bolts the same way but press the button with the flower to the right of the func. set button.
