You don't mention the model of the camera.
I do have a few ideas on things to check, however.

I can tell you that many digital cameras SAY they can accept any alkaline batteries to power them. I've found that while technically speaking, that is true, regular batteries cannot supply enough power to actually make the cameras work. (And you only get a few pictures before they are spent!) That could be giving you just enough juice to power up, but not enough to take a picture or show your screen. (I am also assuming you are inside and still not seeing the pic screen. The screens are very hard to see outside in the light.)

I would suggest that you try the Energizer "e" batteries in the silver and BLUE packaging. Those are made especially for digital/electronic devices and are very powerful. In fact, once they no longer power our digital cameras, we do not discard the batteries. They have more than enough "juice" left to power other everyday items. Our hair trimmers have been running on an old pair of the "e" batteries for two months now!

I would also double check that you have the card inserted properly. They have little metal strips on the backs of the cards, and each camera is often different in how they go in. We have three HP digital cameras - two of them require the card be inserted with the metal strips down and facing the user, but the other one needs the metal strips facing AWAY from the user.

I hope this helps you - perhaps you can post again with the brand and model number of your camera, and get a little more specific help.

Sony Cyber-shot takes lots of blurry pictures in


first thing you can do is to try reverting cam back to factory settings.to do that initialize the camera.it's under menu>setup settings>main settings1>initialize. after initializing,set cam to auto adjustment mode (green camera icon in mode dial). what to avoid when taking pictures:
1.subject too close (use macro if needed)
2.insufficient light
3.subject movement
4.camera movement (that's caused by you)
5.incorrect camera setting
5.incorrect camera operation
btw, before you take a picture,press the shutter button halfway down first to give the cam ample time to focus.you'll see a flashing green indicator on the screen that means cam is focusing.when the indicator stops blinking cam is ready for the shot.press shutter button all the way.review your picture.if still blurry, you may try changing iso (for dark or fast moving subject, note:the greater value the noisier the picture gets), metering mode and focus settings by going to the shooting menu (press menu when your in P or program mode). hope this helps.tnx:)

Very long lag time to shoot and between shots... sometimes!


hello again after researching i did find out that there is about a 3 second delay if using the flash option did any of your delays happen when not using the flash ? also does this happen when using the camera in auto mode ? turning the knob on the top to the green auto mode i'm thinking it also could have to do with your shutter speed or try going to the menu and changing the shutter speed to a faster speed your self then taking pictures in av or tv mode. here's a comment from a review on the PowerShot a590 that might help. Camera performance is very good. The PowerShot A590 is ready to shoot after a 1.2 second delay -- pretty snappy. Focus speeds were very good, even in low light situations. Shutter lag wasn't a problem, and shot-to-shot delays were minimal, except when you're using the flash, which is slow to charge. The camera can shoot continuously at 1.5 frames/second until your (high speed) memory card is full. The A590's battery life is 10% better than its predecessors, and is well above average for its class. The camera supports the USB 2.0 High Speed standard, for fast data transfer to a Mac or PC.
and if you still have the problem with out the flash then the only other solution is a faster flash memory card there's cards made just for digital camera's that store pictures and format quicker.
hope this helps your enjoy your camera.

Canon A75 Power shot


Try formatting the card once and then check it again, the problem is due to the reason that your camera's Auto focus is not working swith it to Auto mode disable Macro and then take Photos when the Green box appears on the LCD.

Reviewing pics


Check the memory card, if you can. A card dock or similar on your PC or laptop. Try reformatting it if nothing is on it. Try another card. The cards can go bad.
This is assuming that the camera is trying to record images when you think you are taking them. I also assume you see an image in the LCD on your camera when you are composing before shooting and the camera acts like it is taking a picture. Do you usually have the ability to review what you just shot and it immediately shows up on the screen? Have you used your flash when this non-recording is taking place? Does it flash?
More info would be helpful.
