PS3 - Yellow/white light


It sounds like the yellow light of death (YLOD) This is usually an issue with the heat sync inside has lost a connection with the solder because of overheating. An easy fix with the proper tools. eBay sells a inexpensive kit to fix that very problem. The only tools you will need that probably won't be provided, are a Philips head screwdriver, and a heat gun. (NOT A HAIRDRYER) as they don't get hot enough. ******IMPORTANT*******MAKE SURE TO COMPLETELY CLEAN THE SURFACE AREA OF THE HEAT SYNC TO ENSURE A PROPER APPLICATION OF HEAT TRANSFER PASTE!!!!!!!********** Then again, if it's still under warranty, just send it back for a free repair. Hope this helps, good luck.

How to change time format from military to 12 hour


According to what I have read if you sync your phone with it, the docking station syncs with whatever time is on your phone...but mostly i read a bunch of reviews claiming that it only ever shows military time, but syncing the other device with it is worth a shot.

I have a sony a200, i want to fit an external flash for that.


The camera already has a hot shoe that will accommodate a Sony flash unit or a third-party flash unit designed for Sony cameras. You don't need anything else (other than the camera and the flash unit, of course).

I just bought a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W530, can I force the Flash?


if by forcing it you mean by making it use the flash on every shot you take just make sure you have the flash set to on. you might have alot of different options to choose from like night portrait or whatever. try and see if turning it to plain on helps. if not please clarify what you mean by force.

My Canon 550d is new and right out of the box on full auto indoor pics are dark. If I go to no flash mode they are much brighter. It's like the flash is out of sync. Is it the camera or me?


the flash only covers a certain range and the built in flash has quite a small range. so lets say its dark in the room and you take a shot of a person they probably look really bright but the background is pretty dark, thats pretty normal and its better not to use flash, now in the auto mode without flash it will be using a higher "ISO" number to get you brighter shots indoors. shots may look slightly grainer but it means its brighter and the 550d handles low light pretty well.

in auto mode you have no control over the ISO but put the camera into P mode which is basically auto but with access to more controls which you can override. now next to the shutter button there is an "ISO"button. experiment with the different numbered setting (100 being low 3200 being high) and you will see what I mean

How can you test a camera before use to be sure the flash sync is working properly.


Set camera up and aim at a blank wall. Place flash on camera, fire off test shots with camera set to flash sync speed and lens set to wide angle (eg 18 mm), ensure flash matches angle of lens. 
You will probably have to turn auto focus off, so that camera will fire, after taking photo/s use review to ensure that you have a nice even coloured piece of wall.
Any problems either with camera sync problems or flash coverage will show up in the test shots.
Camera sync, will show as part of the frame only exposed, for example you may find a horizontal line approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of frame with a proportion of the frame dark.
If you have flash "drop off" you will find the corners of your frame will be dark, you need to ensure that your flash angle specified on the flash and the focal length of the lens match.
Hope this helps Ian

No iTTL mode (or TTL mode) in SB 800 synced with cord to D300


Bingo! That's an X-sync cable, only for firing the flash, syncing it withe shutter - carries out no auto features or communication with the camera.
Don't waste your money on another cable the same. There is no TTL light measuring features with an X-sync cable.
You can, however, get the proper 'off-the-camera' TTL syncing cable either from Nikon or a 3rd party provider. This proper TTL cable can cost a fair bit, I don't know exactly but thinking from $40-$50 to $80'odd.
Shop around, buy from a store where you have the face-to-face enquiry and a return facility if 'they' get it wrong.

**.The best way to acknowledge contribution is to rate it's relevance.**
