    I have the same problem unless I strictly use Lithium batteries.. then it stops.

  • Anonymous Feb 01, 2009

    I HAD the same problem until I noticed that I had to tell the camera what type batteries I was using. (NiMH rechargeable batteries are normally 1.2 VDC, straight carbon/zinc primary cells are nominally 1.5 VDC. Other types of batteries have different voltages so you can see the camera must compensate for those voltage differences.)

I have a pioneer elite television. The red standby light is on, everytime I push power button it goes off. Cant get the blue light on for the tv to work. Think its stuck on standby mode. tried...


In most cases the standby light might blink with different rapidity to indicate a fault relevant to the processor. It is possible that most of these indicate that there are errors in the processing section . Since there is a possible short or leak in the circuit the output driver section can take in huge current to trip the SMPS or from advice from the micro processor. Remove the power plugs and make sure that high voltage sections are discharged of the potential stored in capacitors. Look for visible signs of leak or of busted capacitors. Look for bulged capacitors or damaged components- burnt or busted. Use a multimeter to check the continuity or shorting in components, if so detach from circuit and test . If the voltage builds up and the set power ON and then shuts up then the suspected section must be checked in detail.

The processor must have the +5 voltage to the function properly , the +B and secondary voltages also must be checked to infer the fault. Trace with caution and in running through the signal path , circuit trail.

Hey there, I have a Sony TV and everytime I turn it on it will turn on for approximately 10 seconds with no picture but with sound, but then after that it automatically shuts off. The standby light is...


Hi slittle, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. You have a power failure in one or more of the circuits. When you turn it on, it goes into standby mode, (safety mode), (protection mode). Sony has a blinking code they go by, depending on how many times the light blinks. Its called a Self Diagnostics Test. The TV will shut off to protect it from further damage. Count the number of blinks. Thanks for choosing FixYa...John

I try to take a picture in AF mode while the confirmation light in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be taken, but in MF mode picture taken correctly what is the problem?..


It's attempting to tell you that AF has failed. I'd expect low light, low contrast, reflective subject like a mirror or chrome. A solid colour wall with no contrast will also cause a AF failure. Auto Focus relies on contrast. Switching to manual mode shuts off the system and you can take a picture with nothing in focus.

Olympus 7010 shuts down in picture mode - not a battery problem


I will tell you how I did it for the same price you were going to charge me for a solution. To ask how I did it once I found a solution without a fee goes against your business model.

Camera shows batteries need replacing after putting in fresh ones


Try cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. If the sticky coke got inside the camera, it will only get worse as the phosphoric acid does more damage.

Since your two cameras have the same problem with the same computer, I would like to suggest you to connect those cameras to another computer. It looks like the problem is on the computer side.

Slow record time/goes into standby mode


Hi,

It sounds as if it is working mechanically, but there is a software fault.

Try downloading a new driver for it (or use the CD which you may still have)

They are available free Here.

(Please contact again if this does not solve the issue; If it does, Please rata as Fixya! so others may benefit. Thanks.)
