I have dropped camera once, since after while clicking pictures at night in absolute dark, several round white small circles or spots are appearing on the image.But in full light area and in daylight...


Are these flash pictures? Are the spots in different places on each picture? If the answer to both questions is yes, the spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash back into the lens.

Ok dont worry about that, first thing you need to do is to remove the memory card., Turn On cmaera wothout memory card, now press menu button and go to setup menu and under setup menu please look for format then press Ok, under format please for mat the internal memory.

Now if you already reformat the internal memory, take atleast 3 pictures on a same subject., then hit review if the lines appeared on both pictures on same location, it means camera needs of service please call Kodak toll free 1 800 235 6325., For U.S and canada support. Gudluck!

I have a canon powershot 750


An ideea would be pressing the button a little bit harder and a little bit longer.Most of the cameras have that orange light before the flash(that appears when you press harder on the button) to reduce the red-eye effect in the pictures.
If this doesn't work, look carefully in the manual or the settings of your camera and try to find an option that turns on the flash.Also the type of the picture(indoor, sunny, night etc) can automatically disable the flash.
As a last resort, here is the camera's manual

Auto Mode In this mode, all you have to do is press the shutter button and let the camera do everything else. 1. Turn the camera on.
2. Turn the shooting mode dial to normal_mode.gif.
