Av is flashing

When I turn the camera on the Av starts blinking and the camera won't do anything. I don't find this problem in the troubleshooting part of the manual and can't seem to get it to do anything.

Help please!

    Have you tried taking the batteries out and putting them back in to reset the camera?

Make sure the aperture setting on the lens is set to "A". Solved the problem.

I cant find a book on Pentax support website for this camera. It is http://www.pentax.jp/english

I have a feeling the the camera is in the wrong mode for viewing. Does this camera have an option to plug an AV cable into it and display the image on a monitor rather than the screen? It could be a cable that controls it or a setting on the camera that needs to be turned off.

You could take into a camera shop and they can get the camera out of that mode and show you how it works.

Error why coming


Can you hear any fan or drive sounds? If you don't hear anything at all when you try to turn the laptop on, no little LED's light up, the problem almost certainly isn't related to the hard drive. So if you don't have a live screen, start with the LCD troubleshooting flowchart, and if you don't have any activity at all, start with the power troubleshooting flowchart. Even if the hard drive has failed at the electro/mechanical level and won't spin up, this wont prevent the LED's on the laptop from lighting up, or the LCD from displaying the BIOS information and complaining about the lack of a boot device.

Y olsdmobile lss 98 is on security light flashing and won t star how to fixed


put key in ignition and turn all the way like your'e going to start it but don't start it. the security light is going to be flashing. leave it for ten minutes like that until the security light turns solid(not blinking). Turn the key to off and then start it. The tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder are no good any more and the ignition switch needs to be replaced and reprogrammed.

My Nikon Coolpix s230 flash won't work. It just blinks red in the lower right hand corner. I've tried all the settings and they all won't flash.


If there is a problem with the flash itself or the mainboard connection to the flash it will not charge. If the flash won't charge then it won't go off when you take a picture. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the flash with a good used one and see if that fixes it. If not, then you need to replace the mainboard. Good used parts can usually be found online for cheap; that auction website doesn't pay me to type their name, so I don't, sorry. Hope this helps!

My camera won't flash no matter how many new batteries I put in it. It will take pictures that don't require a flash. I've reset everything twice and nothing has worked. Contacts are clean. ...


Some Canon cameras use some of the screws around the perimeter of the camera to serve as a safety switch to prevent activation of the flash if the case is opened. See this article for more info.

JVC AV-F29MX3 I was watching a film on my DVD connected to the TV, when suddenly the screen turns black with no sound heard. Also the front light indicating 'ON TIMER' and 'ECO' started blinking in red...


usually after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to tube ) becomes weak - then TV won't get ON.. means no picture no sound ..but LED blinks - in some TVs along with EHT 1 or 2 components like resistor, transistors, etc will also gets deffective .................. so solution is TV circuit board has to be checked to find whether only EHT is deffective or other components are also deffective.......... price of EHT will be between Rs.250 (US$ 5) to Rs.600 ( US$ 12) ........iam from bangalore ( 09986222774, sathyavijayasarathibabu@ymail.com ) .....i don't have any idea about EHT component's price & service charge in your area........this problem cannot be solved by user unless user is a technical person having idea about components (resistors, transistors,diodes,...etc..), having multimeter , soldering iron & other tools...so my suggestion call TV service engineer or contact jvc service centre.........
