MODE SELECTION PROBLEM

THE MODE SELECTION CHANGES ON ITS OWN. IT S INTERMITTENT BUT GETTING MORE CONSTANT. WHEN I TURN ON THE CAMERA, THE MODE SELECTION CHANGES BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN TWO OR THREE DIFFERENT SETTINS (EX: SET ON AUTO ADJUSTMENT MODE AND THE SETTING SWITCHES BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN AUTO ADJUST, PROGRAM MODE, MOVIE, ETC.) I DID AN INITIALIZE BUT THE PROBLEM STILL EXIST. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

Try menu-> setup->setup1, initialize, ok- this resets calendar and time as well. It brought mine back to correct mode selection.  Also make sure your battery is fully charged.

While in auto mode, I am getting a very delayed shutter reaction. Other times, it will not allow me to take a picture. The problem was intermittent and now is frequent. I have made no changes to the set...


hi there,

after read your explanation, i assume the problem is at the mirror. normally, the mirror will be weaken after 50,000 cycle times shutter and it`s the weakness of DSLR. it costs you nearly the price of the camera today, and i think it`s time for you to change it with the new one

hope this post will help, thanks

I have a Powershot A85 and am trying to shot silver jewelry and am having a problem getting a clear picture. I have lost my manual - can you tell me how do I get a clean clear picture to put on a website?...


Recommend a room with good ambient, non-direct, lighting. Also place the camera in "Portrait" mode (the dial selection with the lady's profile). Also turn off the flash by pressing the lightning bolt button repeatedly until you get the icon with the slash through the lightning. Next put it in close-up macro mode by pressing the little flower button. Next use the timer to take the shot, by pressing Func Set, then scrolling down to the mode selection, and then scrolling right to select the 2 second option.

The camera is now set for such a closeup. Recommend using a tripod to keep the camera extra steady during the shot. If no tripod is available, recommend bracing the camera against another object, such as a chair to help keep it steady. Aim and zoom at the piece of jewelry, push the shutter halfway down to focus on the jewelry (should see a green box). Once you get the green box indicating focus, press the shutter all the way down to start the timer. Hold the camera extra steady until about a second after the shot.

Good Luck!

Red dye reduction


Hi,
You can find your manual here....www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/zoom/man_c725uz_e.pdf

You find how to disable red eye function on page no: 63 in that manual.

For quick reference i am giving the details briefly,

The flash modes are as follows:

AUTO FLASH:

Automatically fires in low-light and backlight conditions.

RED EYE REDUCTION FLASH:

This mode significantly reduces
the phenomenon of “red-eye”
by emitting about 10 preflashes
before firing the regular
flash. This mode works the
same as the auto-flash except
for the pre-flashes.

To change between flash modes:

1 Press the (flash) switch.
● The flash pops up.
2 Press the / (flash mode) button
repeatedly until the desired flash mode
indication appears.
● The flash mode changes ,
● If / is not pressed within 2 seconds after the selection screen is
displayed, the selection screen disappears.
● To de-activate the flash (Flash Off mode ), push the flash back into the
camera.
3 Press the shutter button halfway.
● When the flash is ready to fire, the
(flash stand-by) mark lights.
4 Press the shutter button all the way.
● The flash fires.


Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Good Luck.

STUCK ON STANDBY


I took the ****** apart and found two spring-loaded black triangular plastic pieces poking out of two rectangular chips about 2mm square, just below the circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes mode – play, video, camera. Actually I found one of the above, because the second triangular piece was stuck in the closed position. A bit of jiggling and voila the problem was fixed.
That was the good news. The other news is that I must now reinsert inside of the shell a black circular piece of plastic that affixes to the rotating circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes the mode. When properly attached this circular piece manipulates the triangular pieces to change the mode.
I think that the likelihood of getting this piece properly aligned and affixed so that it moves the triangular pieces properly when the mode knob is rotated falls into the statistical probability range of pork taking wing. But worth a try.

Wont take photos outside


The symptoms you're describing could be caused by either the "Fireworks" special scene selection mode, or manual mode with too much exposure compensation. Look at your mode selector (back of the camera, upper left hand corner). Is the mode set to the still image setting (pointing at the liittle red camera)? Or is it set to special scene selection (SCN)?

If you are unintentionally in SCN mode, to get it out of "Fireworks", just turn the mode selector dial to select "still image" (pointing at the little red camera). Or you can also select an SCN mode more appropriate for outdoors. Just turn the dial to SCN, press the FUNC button, then press the left/right arrow buttons to select Portrait, Beach, Snow etc...

But if your mode selector is already in still image selection, then check to make sure that you're not in "Manual" picture mode. Turn the mode selector dial to "still picture mode" (pointing at the little red camera), then press the "FUNC" button. Now look at the bottom of the screen. If it says "Manual", press the "left" button controller once to select and put the camera in "Auto" still picture mode.

Flash mode locked to Off


Try this, I had the same problem. Here is what I did, I powered off the camera then with the menu button pressed I turned the camera on. This must set the camera back to default settings. I was then able to turn my flash to auto or any other selection.
