Tried to take pictures of lightening last night and couldn't. My lens kept going in and out and wouldn't focus so wouldn't allow me to shoot. Then I kept getting a BUSY across the screen. ...


For this kind of pictures, Don't try to focus on a lightning, it is to quick and mabe the overall brightness is not enough for your camera to focus.
So you can try to focus on something at infinity, if you manage then, put your focus on manual before re focusing, this way you will be able to take as many pictures as you want.

You can also try to focus manually directly.

And for you information the best way to take a lightning picture is to put your camera in bulb mode, use a remote control, open the shutter and close it as soon as you'v seen a lightning.

Hope this helps.
and good shooting !

How do you turn the flash off on a kodak easy share c813


Press the flash button (marked with a lightning bolt symbol, next to the on/off button) repeatedly to cycle through the different flash modes. The four available modes are Auto (lightning bolt and letter "A"), which flashes when needed; Fill (lightning bolt), which always flashes to fill in shadows, Redeye (eye), which flashes once to dilate the subject's pupils then flashes again to take the picture, and Off (lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it), which never flashes.

My flash bulb doesn't work, picture are dark


Do you have it turned off? Is there a picture of a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt until the screen shows a lightning bolt and an "a". Also, do you have the camera set on a scene mode such as night? The flash won't go off in some scene modes.

The camera takes a while to snap after pressing the snap botton. or it does not snap at all.


Do you have any blinking or flashing symbols in the viewfinder?
A blinking lightning bolt could be telling you of IMPROPER FE LOCK
A blinking DOT may indicate that you are shooting in One-Shot AF mode and focus was not obtained. Try to refocus, press the shutter button half way and allow the image to come into focus.

Also, check you memory card, if it is not inserted properly or has a slight twist, the camera will not shoot. Make sure your card is not full, and check if it has a write protect tab and check that the tab is not loose and sliding enough to make the camera think the card is protected. Lastly - try getting a new memory card, often there are aftermarket cards that have first quality labels that will prevent the camera from functioning correctly.

My camera won't take pics it just keeps flashing a red lightning bolt what is this


The red lightning is the flash trying to charge (probably a weak battery or an old one) and it won't snap a picture until it does.(which won't happen with a weak battery).

How do I turn off the flash for the canon powershot a630?


First of all, the flash can not be turned off in "Auto" mode. You can turn it off in any mode other than Auto. Would recommend Program "P" mode, which is very similar to Auto, but allows you to modify certain minor items such as flash and white balance.

Rotate your mode dial to "P", then press the button on the back with the "lightning bolt" icon. Press until the lightning bolt with a slash shows up on your LCD screen. The flash is now turned off in Program mode. Try taking a picture.

Remember, if in low light conditions you'll need to keep the camera extra steady without flash to get a clear picture. Recommend placing the camera on a table or chair (or even better, use a tripod), then using its autotimer to snap the picture.
