    I too have the same problem. My camera shows the hand with the word on which I take as meaning the image stabilization is on (my menu indicates I've set to be on all times). However, when I press the shutter button half way I get the hand with the exclamation point in a triangle symbol which I take to mean it's not stable. This is a new problem I'm having along with it taking blurry photos regardless of settings even when on a tripod. My pup slowly chewing on a bone yielded an unreadablly blurry picture. Also, when trying to photo a close up (poison ivy on an arm) it would not focus to get an adequate picture. Another new problem is the flash will not come on when I desire. I'm very much a novice but didn't initially have these problems when I first bought the camera and took the best pictures I've ever taken. The problems just started one day and I don't recall me or anyone else changing settings. The feedback to turn the auto focus on didn't help me as it was already on. Dang, I want it to work before I go on vacation in 1 1/2 weeks :0) Any help would be appreciated!

Hand sign/ image means "manual focus" it doesn't mean anti-vibration. Press Focus button to cancel manual focus and ON the auto-focus. Hand symbol will disappear.

I have shudder and my camera is having trouble focusing...can you help please?


Lots of cameras have vibration reduction or image stabilizer lenses. You could try them. Or try having the camera on a tripod and using a timer or remote control to trigger it so that you do not have to hold it and let it shake.

I have a nikon 5100. The lenses have a on/off button and two others. How and when do I use them?


This is the 18-55mm lens? That lens only has a "A-M" switch to go between auto and manual focus. Some lenses have an on/off switch for the Vibration Reduction (VR) feature, and some of them have another switch to turn on/off active VR.

Vibration Reduction compensates for camera movement. This lets you hand-hold the camera at slower shutter speeds. Active VR allows camera movement in one direction while compensating for movement in other directions, allowing for panning.

You can download the manual for some (though not all) Nikon lenses from

Why wont my iPod turn on?


Try plugging the Ipod into a charger and see if anything appears. If a charging symbol does not show up try next step.
If charging symbol doesn't show up hold down the Power Button and the Home Button at the same time for A FULL 30 seconds! The apple logo should show up. If it does not move to the next step.
If nothing shows up on the phone at this point try moving the silence button up and down, do you get a vibration when you change the button to silence? If so it means that your screen is just not displaying the image and you need a new LCD if it does not make a vibration when you move the silence button after trying all of the above steps it is likely that the phone is ruined or something is disconnected on the interior.

Canon ixus 65 - when taking a shot without the flash on, a red camera icon appears on screen and the shot is usually blurry. Why?


When hand-held shooting, shaking will cause blurry. So when the shutter speed below 1 / 60 second the vibration warning will appear, open the flash, up shutter speeds, vibration warning disappeared.

Is the engine running on all four cylinders, no missfire? If so, check the engine and transmission mounts, there are four, one at the top right hand side, one at the top of transmission on the left hand side, and one on front of transmission bell housing, and one in the rear transmission bell housing, any of them that are bad can cause this vibration. Hope this helps, let me know.

Vibration after turning on


Make sure that the Battery is fully charged.
Check for the following steps:
  • Use the flash if the amount of light is insufficient.
  • Hold the camera steady with both hands
  • If the camera has an anti-blur feature, turn it on.
Please reset the Camera by selecting Initialize under Settings and Setup 1 Menu.
If the issue persists, your camera may require service.

Hi!
The problem you have is a faulty image stabilizer. It's a well known problem in these cameras. It's a hardware fault and I'm afraid you won't be able to fix it yourself. Usualy it requires the lens unit to be replaced. You should contact your local Sony service center or me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com - I give the best prices. ;)
I work in a Sony service center.

Hope this helps!

My sony cybershot digicam is capturing blurred pics and just before clickin the pics a "hand mark along with an exclamation" sign appears which i found to be vibration error. how do i deal with it


The hand icon means you don't have enough light to hand-hold a shot with the settings you are using. You need to either:

1) Use the flash
2) Use a tripod

Blurred pictures


I had the same problem. The solution is in the manual but it is not straight forward. You have to set steady shot to auto when the shutter button is pressed half way down. The vibration warning will still show. At this point the camera is sensing low light. The to need to make sure the flash is set to always on. The flash setting for background will not turn the vibration warning off.
