I have a hitachi camera model HDC-1291E. When I click for a snap, it is automatically powered off. It happens more when I use camera flash. How to get rid off this?


Try replacing the batteries, it is evident the camera is not getting enough power, especially when you run the flash, this should address the issue.

Orange light flashes on when turn on Olympus c-50 zoom camera and orange and green lights in upper left corner blink when try to take pictures. Won't take any pictures


The flashing Orange light means the charge is flashing.
The flashing Green light means the focus and exposure are not correct.

Have you recently replaced the batteries? Or are you using rechargeable batteries? Lack of enough "Juice" could allow for the flash to not charge up (Orange) therefore not allowing the camera to get the correct exposure (Green). I would try new fresh batteries or a new battery pack. If that doesn't fix the issue it must be a bad circuitry in the body that is shorting not letting the flash charge.

Jacob

When I open the shutter door on the front it does not seem to switch on - the battery is charged - the green and orange light on the back flash and beep ???


2 thoughts. 1, with both green and orange lights flashing the manual indicates that that means that the battery is not charged. This site provided an answer to a similar question that suggested cleaning around the battery area [see Bill BS answer to Wendy]. 2, To you and Wendy, I had a similar problem and a call to Olympus suggested the likely problem was not battery related. When you open the slide, and if you press down on the cover, around where the "s" on olympus appears, that keeps the lens extended. Don't know why that is, or how to permanently fix, but it seemed to work.

HITACHI HDC-646E battery cover open


This is more likely a mechanical failure - that is a micro switch actuated by opening/closing the cover.
Contact manufacturer support site for a remedy/advice.

Error message: battery cover open. This message appears in the window and will not let me operate camera until problem is resolved. The cover is closed, but the message will not go away. I have re-set...


Hi X,
There's a little piece of plastic on the battery cover, that presses a switch when you slide the cover closed. Check that manually with a tooth pick and the the battery in place. Don't smash it. I have a Olympus FE -280 and it only happens when I put the cheap Chinese battery in.
If you are in the least uncertain, call Customer Service.
Best regards, Paul

Olympus mju 410- Orange lamp flashing


I had this happen and fixed it by removing the battery and leaving it out overnight and making sure it was fully charged - the next day battery inserted and it was ok. Prior to inserting battery I opened shutter cover and help down shutter release to try to drain any residual power. - Worth a try.

Kodak Easyshare Z760 orange light flashing


The flash does not charge separate from the rest of the camera. Try cleaning the flash sensor on the front of the camera or the flash led may be bad.

Secondly, this light functions as a flash sensor which is trying to tell you that you need to use a flash although you may have the flash manually turned off. looks like a bolt of lightning with a circle/slash through it.

Pictures reddish or orange


Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color: If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light. If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash. If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange. If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights. If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
