Not sure of exact problem

I have had my camera for at the most 2.5 years, and my battery symbol started flashing, so naturally I replaced the batteries, and put in a new roll of film, now when I turn it on to take a picture, it makes a weird sound and the battery symbol starts flashing again. NEW FILM, NEW BATTERIES, it shouldn't do this ugh can someone help me please?

    I have 2 Cameras, both Canon EOS Rebel G and I have the same problem. I tried 2 sets of brand new batteries on both cameras and they both have the same problem. The camera makes a whirring sound and the low battery symbol flashes. Is this a common occurrence? Help please!

    I have the same exact problem as described by previous 2 people. SO frustrating! My camera is only 3 years old and I've spent approx. $1200 between camera and lenses!

The charger may not be charging the batteries properly.
The batteries you are buying may not be good.
There may be a fault in the camera where the voltage is not being properly regulated.

Your best solution would be to take the camera to a camera service center to have everything properly tested to resolve the issue.

Canon 600ex-rt speedlite won't turn on with new batteries


I was having exactly the same issue with my 600EX-RT. This is what solved the problem for me. With the power turned off. Hold down the 2 clear buttons for approximately 5 seconds, then turn the power on and hopefully, you should have a fully operational Flash.

Flashing red symbol on screen - not 'no cassette loaded' symbol.


I had the same problem with my ZR800. After lots of searching on the net I found out what the symbol indicates. It means that the little battery that holds the memory for the clock is weak. It's under a little cover behind the main battery compartment. I put in a new one that the flashing icon is gone. I put the battery I took out into another ZR800 and the icon started flashing on it. A simple solution that Canon should have posted in the manual.

I have a Polaroid t1031 Digital camera that I've only had since last Christmas. It has never been dropped or mishandled. However, the flash no longer works on it? The flash doesn't seem to be physically...


Sometimes the flash will be disabled when the battery is low in order to save power. Charge the battery fully and start up the camera.

At the top of the display, second from the left, you should see a symbol that contains a lightning bolt. This indicates the flash setting. Press the right side of the circular button until the symbol matches the picture on that button (just the bolt, no eye or A or anything). Now the flash is set to forced on. Try taking a picture.

If the flash still is not going off, something is broken. Call Polaroid. They may replace it if you have a receipt (as long as it's not refurbished or over a year old).

Won't take picture though I replaced battery.


Even though it was cushioned somewhat the camera took enough damage to jam something. The flashing symbols are a generic error code it could mean the shutter, zoom, film transport, flash, or some combination of these system are not working (sorry but without tearing the camera apart I can't narrow the problem any further)

Pictures taking too long, and a lightning bolt symbol appears


Hi, Could you please tell us what camera model this is?
I believe you replaced with new fully charged batteries.
Try changing the memory card. Old defective memory card will delay between shots.
If it still doesnt work, try updating the firmware of the camera.
Hope it helps...

Not turning on


The batteries probably need to be replaced. Be sure that any batteries seat properly and tightly. You may have to tape the battery door shut with strong tape to keep the contact tight. This type of damage is expensive to repair compared to the cost of the cameras. You can take it in and have it looked at, but be sure to get an estimate and then you can make an educated decision on whether to repair or replace it.

Best wishes to you and Thank you for using Fix Ya!

Low battery indicator


If that camera has a problem, the low battery symbol will flash as a warning to tell you that it is not working properly. Kind of like the "Check Engine" light in your car. It tells you something is not working, but doesn't give you any clue what it is!

Check to make sure the pop-up flash is not sticking down when it is supposed to be popping up. That is the most common cause for that problem. Also, check the shutter blades in the film compartment to make sure they haven't been pushed out of their tracks when you were loading film.

If neither one of those is causing the problem, take it to a local camera repair shop and have them check it out.

Camera will not start properly and lens is out


Leave the camera sitting with no batteries overnight. Then in the morning install ONLY Kodak AA batteries. I had the exact same problem.
