Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z850 Digital Camera

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture

In low lighting, my Exilim 8.1 won't take a picture if I have the auto flash setting on.  The red light on the back of the camera continually flashes, like it's busy.  When I try to take the picture, nothing happens.  The only way I can get the picture to take is to turn the flash off... and then, it's blurry, due to low lighting.  It didn't do this when I first got it, and I don't know what's different now. I've tried recharging, removing then reinstalling the battery, changing memory cards... nothing I've found works... except to turn the flash off, and take blurry pictures.  Any suggestions?  Did I change some setting without realizing it?

Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).

The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.

Red light flashing...no picture. TV not turning


Probably a failed main power supply. There are at least two supplies; one that keeps the remote function alive continuously and the second that is turned on when the set is ordered to operate. The smaller supply is a low voltage circuit and that is providing your error indication.

The camera will not take a picture, the orange


This light flashes to show the camera is out of focus or you need to turn on Automatic flash in low lighting conditions.

The reason you must press the button half way is to engage auto focus. If you take pics by pressing once without doing this the picure is likely to be poor quality.

Keep practising the two push method with the button as it takes a while to get used to it. There is no way of changing this method other than ignoring it with subsequent poor results.

Picture in dark condition.


It may be that your subject is too far away. The range of your internal flash is 12 feet if you have the ISO set for Auto, or 23 feet if the ISO is set for to 1000. You may get Normal 0   Normal 0 acceptable results with the ISO set to 1000 without the flash, but you should put the camera on a tripod (the shutter speed could be as low as 1/8 of a second) and use set the zoom for wide angle (the lens lets in almost 8 times the light as it does in maximum telephoto.)

I hope this helps,

Nikon S210 flash not working


The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


I have seen this problem on the ex-s880 casio camera a few times sometimes you can go into the setup menu and reset the camera to default and that some times fixes it. it that does not work I have had to replace the flash circuit on the camera because the large compasitor is out and needs tobe replaces most likely this is your problem because of the flashing LED. Hope this helps its a great camera also you might want to check with casio because this should be covered under warrenty. If the camera was not dropped.

Try playing with the background or lighting - ex: take pics during the day versus nite... use a white/light colored background versus something dark.

Make sure you have the flash set to "auto" or try the "red eye" setting.. I've had good luck with both of those.

Also make use of the zoom. Stand farther back and zoom in - versus being close up and NOT using the zoom.

Hope this helps :)

Built in Flash stutters...


This is the camera trying to give itself enough light to focus with.

As it uses contrast to focus with you will get problems in low light conditions. There's no way round this I'm afraid except to light the subject better. As it's a digital camera and you're not wasting film, try manual focus and see what results you get.

Casio Exilim EX-Z850 Red Light Flashing


I have the same problem but could not find any solution as yet. My work around is to switch of the flash and shoot with manual controls - of course that only works well when using a tripod or someting similar. I think it is a bug with the flash loader wich seems not to give the go for shooting until flash preload is finished. If anybody has a real solution I'd be happy to read. cheers e

Red eye


RED EYE is caused by the sudden flash from your camera and the eyes reflex reaction to the sudden light. So what the red eye reduction does is to double flash to counter the reaction. You can try adding an external light source to to your subject. in addition to the following procedures for your camera in the manual, the indicator location on page 64 Flash On Flash Off Red-eye reduction C REC modes on page 52, Snapshot; pg 64, have the flash fire automatically when required (Auto Flash) * Turn off the flash ... recording with flash, reducing the chance of red-eye in the image (Red- eye reduction) In this case, the flash fires automatically; Also, be aware of the following: The approximate effective range of the flash is shown below. Wide Angle Optical Zoom: Approximately 0.4 to 2.9 meters (1.3´ to 9.5´) (ISO Sensitivity: Auto) Telephoto Optical Zoom: Approximately 0.4 to 1.6 meters (1.3´ to 5.2´) (ISO Sensitivity: Auto) * Depends on zoom factor
