    Allan, I'm sorry I didn't make in clearer, I meant I had icons missing on my display such as the battery level icon as well as others. Are they suppose to be visiable all of the time?

    Hey doc4luvual,

    What camera do you have? What icons are missing? Do you want the icons printed on your pictures?

Hey doc4luvual,
I would try resetting your camera to the default factory settings under the setup menu. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Screen and view finder not showing anything

Just covering the bases...
Make sure the lens cap is removed
Turn the ON/OFF switch to Favorite mode
Press EVF/LCD does it toggle
Look to see if the battery level ICON shows better then half
Battery combination sometimes will show a strong icon level
It may be strong in the other modes which draws less power then the picture taking mode.
My guess would be New Battery replacement.
Some tests were done that may be of value to your solution

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 95IS camera.. For some reason, when I attempt to take a photo, the LCD screen isn't displaying what is actually in view? In movie mode it comes up on the screen but when i flick it...

Ah yes! you have pressed the display button. Turn the camera on and you see the icons in the display, look for the Disp button and press it, the display will cycle through its modes icons, black, image and icons.

Camera fails to flash every time we take a picture

1.Turn off the camera.
2.Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera. then turn it ON
3.Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash. a86196b.jpg
4.Take a picture. [If flash still doesn't work contact Kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)]

Camera turns on then shuts down

hi...ensure  that the camera is turned on. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears.  Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon. This button could be a standalone button or it depends upon the camera model..... 
If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged. 
Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera. 
If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet. 
Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected. 
Perform a reset procedure on the camera....

thank u rate me!!!!

DSC-W100 "Shaky Hand" icon and taking infrequent pictures

You restarted it by turning it off and on again?

Try re-initializing your camera. Menu --> Setup 1 --> Initialize "OK"

I hope that helps.

As for switching back to camera mode, that could be your selector switch. Mine is weird to, it takes pics fine but the selector switch is touchy and thinks i'm turning it when I'm not. It does this most often in Auto mode, probably because I use it most. You might try putting it in another mode before reviewing pics.

Can I move images saved to the internal memory to the optional xD-Picture Card?

You sure can. Go to your shooting mode menu. Scroll down to BACKUP Click on OK Select YES Click on OK All image data stored in the internal memory is copied to the card. Press MENU to exit the menu. Make sure there is enough room on your card to hold all the pictures in memory. When you've copied to the card the original pictures are still held in the internal memory so you will have to clear it. When the card has insufficient memory, [CARD FULL] is displayed and copying is canceled. When the battery icon is blinking, pictures cannot be backed up because of insufficient battery power. If the battery power runs out during copying, the image data may be lost or damaged. I recommended you use the AC adapter if you have one. If not, make sure your batteries are charged. Never open the battery compartment/card cover, remove the batteries, or connect or disconnect the AC adapter during copying as this may cause malfunction to the internal memory or the card.
