Can i change shutter speed on my camera?


Not much. The D-540 is designed as a point-and-shoot camera, which means you're supposed to just point and shoot, without bothering about such minor details as the shutter speed and the aperture.

You have some control. For example, the Portrait mode will attempt to use a wide aperture to reduce the depth of field, which will result in a faster shutter speed, while the Landscape mode will attempt to use a smaller aperture to increase the depth of field, which will result in a slower shutter speed.

More sophisticated (and heavier, and more expensive) cameras will give you more control, but this is about all you're going to get with most point-and-shoot cameras.

Where is apulture,iso,shutter speed options present in camera


This is one of the biggest drawbacks of a point&shoot camera. You're expected to point the camera and shoot the picture without worrying about minor details like aperture and shutter speed.
You can select the ISO by pressing the FUNC/SET button in the shooting mode and then selecting ISO (third item from the top along the left edge of the screen).
You can control the aperture and shutter speed somewhat by changing the scene mode. For example, the portrait mode will try to give you a wide aperture, the landscape mode will try to give you a small aperture, and the sports mode will try to give you a fast shutter speed.
If you want to take your photography above and beyond the point&shoot level then you need a more capable camera.

The blinking light may be telling you the picture you want is out of the camera's range. You may have to increase the ISO, shoot at a slower shutter speed, or open the lens aperture.

The flash stopped working but the camers still works. What to do?


Look for a used one because the cost of fixing that one may exceed the cost of replacement. Plus if you buy another same model, then if something else goes out on it you will have a second camera for parts.

Yes, it sounds like you're in "Fast Frame Rate" video mode. Turn on the camer to video mode, then press right/left to select normal 640 pixel video.

My camer turns on but it wont let me take a pictuer when i cut it


Is this on a D70? It sounds like you have a point and shoot camera that is set in closeup mode. The little leave is normally the symbol for close ups (like of flowers).

Having trouble with my camer shooting slow between pictures


You might have a USB virus or spyware infection in the memory card. I suggest you have Kodak develop the pictures then wipe the memory card clean. And the pictures might be dark because of the camera settings and or the development quality. Try resetting the camera. Hope this works.

Taking fast action shots


This camera is not a good fast action camera! The best you can do is use a very fast memory card in it, and lock the focus to be averaged to where you want it.

One thing I found was that locking the focus to the range I want to use helps a little. Some of the delay it has is from finding the proper focus point.

If you want a fast action camera, you should be looking at a digital true SLR type.
