I don't know how to use the lcd screen when taking pictures


Many cameras that have view finders do not support use of the LCD display to compose or frame a picture. This is generally to conserve battery life of the camera. Most of these cameras limit how long a picture is displayed on the screen to 10 or 15 seconds, immediately after taking for the very same reason.

The exception would be a camera that lacks a view finder - or has a menu item that allows the user to compose the picture on the LCD in addition to the viewfinder. Some manufacturers call this "live view". Check your camera manual to see if it is supported. If so, be sure to buy extra batteries!

I hope this helps & good luck!

Samsung.. don't know how to take/send pictures


1. From the Home screen, press and hold the Camera Key on the right side of the phone.
Tip: The Camera always opens in landscape mode. While taking pictures,
use the external command keys, or the QWERTY command keys.

2. Set Options, if desired.

3. Using the display screen as a viewfinder, compose your
picture by aiming the lens at your subject.

4. Press the Camera Key or the Center Select Key TAKE to take the picture.
Tip: Open the phone immediately after taking a photo to resize the photo and
create a new picture message with the new photo attached.

5. After taking a photo, use the soft keys for these options:
• Press the Right Soft Key Erase to delete the new photo.
• Press the Center Select Key SEND to resize the new photo
and attach it to a new picture message.
• Press the Left Soft Key Save to save the picture to My
Pictures.

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

My Canon EOS 1000D wont take photos, viewfinder flashes busy


Maybe you drop your battery and they have electronic components inside that could be spoiled, if is that the case, try to change the battery, it appeares to me that the ammount of current the battery is sending to the component is very low even thoe it seems to be fully charged that's why the camera is unable to display anything and the "busy" warning is blinking all the time, I hope you find this usefull.

Canon sd900 will only take pictures that don't require a flash


Press the "DISP" button. Button on the top right of the bigger circle control button.

You can turn off the display if you want to conserve battery and use the viewfinder. So you probably accidentally turned it off. You can use that button to turn on/off the LCD display or change between two brightness settings on the LCD.

Hope that fixes your problem.
