Bright flash on caplio R3 digital camera

I have a ricoh caplio r3 digital camera. whenever i take a photo indoors with flash the photos come out white because the flash is too bright unless you go further back, in which case the photos are too dark or too far away. is there any way of reducing the flash??

    I have the same problem. Hard to find a happy medium between flash
    being too bright or not bright enough. 1.5 mteres seems best. The Ricoh
    Caplio3 doesn't take good pictures in low light if you attempt without
    the flash.

    I now have lost my display - can just see it in bright light.
    Brightness control is cranked to the max. Are there any tricks to
    changing the settings other than what is offered?

    Would a cell phone sitting next to the camera cause problems with it's software?

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES there is a solution if that is the r3 thing. There is a menu button and the menu button has four arrows around it right??? Yeah, well, press the arrow pointing west to change the flash's power. And if that doesnt work just press the up button instead and that should bring you to a menu or something where you can change what kind of picture the camera will take. At least, thats what i think...

    ummmm...i think the up arrow thing works better now. it can change the settings of the surroundings of the camera.

Ricoh Caplio R3 display dark


I diagnosed this one. When I plugged in the AV cable the display was coming up on TV screen so figured it must be a power supply to the camera's display. Found a broken solder joint and fixed it!!
The camera is not worth spending money or time on repairs. Last time it stuffed out within guarantee time, it needed to go to Hong Kong and took 3 months to return.

cheers,
Paul

Ricoh caplio r3 digital camera.


This has happened to me a couple of times. It appeared when the camera was getting a lot of use and it wouldn't turn off - it was jammed on. I had to leave it a few minutes and not touch it - turn it off, then it was ok. I think it was overheated!
