Will not function in the Picture Taking Mode

The camera will not turn on in the Picture Taling Mode.
I have replaced the batterires. Hit the Rest Bitton on the bottom of the camera. It has been suggested that I remove the batteries and just let it sit for a while. I will try that until I hear from somebody.
Thanks in advance.

Turns on and won't turn off has a picture of a battery and a flower


Try to push the ON/OFF button longer or harder. If the problem persist, take the batteries off then put in again into your camera.
Picture of battery shows your battery stats full/empty.
Picture of flower is indicator that you use "MACRO" mode, this is mode when you have to take a small picture with near range between object and lens while capturing the picture, not suggested for taking daily pictures. If you don't need this function you can turn off the "MACRO" mode, certain camera have dedicated button to adjust it, but see the manual to make sure.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please, thank you.

HI i have a canon ixus 700 it still take great pictures but when i try to use the flach on the camera it wil not take a picture please can you help


It's possible the camera is in one of the manual modes with the flash turned off. With the camera turned on and in the picture taking mode press the function button and look at the bottom of the screen. press the right or left side of the ring to highlite the auto setting then press the function button again.

When I turn my camera on, the lcd doesn't display. I can review an image though in the play mode. any ideas??


Rebel XT doesn’t have live view function. You cannot have picture on LCD when taking picture. If you can review the pictures and operate menu on LCD, your camera just fine.

The only functioning modes are the picture viewing & set up modes


Have Sony DSC-P73 with exact problem. Only turns on in SETUP mode and when switches to all other modes camera shuts off usually with lens extended. Have tried new batteries - new memory stick - new everything and nothing helped. I just took out the batteries and attached the AC ADAPTER and all works perfectly now so problem is with either batteries - battery compartment or battery connections. As long as you do not need a "PORTABLE" camera, using AC Adapter solves this problem :)

Canon Power shot 570 IS problem


Check to see if your camera is in Macro mode. This may cause blur. Also hit your function/set button to see if it is in digital macro mode.

Make sure your lens is clean.

Make sure you are set to automatic mode and zoomed all the way out. There are several things that may cause blur, the most of which is camera shake. Make sure your Image Stabilization is turned on. If it is, you will see a little hand in the bottom right corner of the LCD screen.

If it's not on, turn it on in the setup (tools) menu.

If your shutter speed is slow, this will cause image blur, but in auto mode, you won't have to worry about the shutter speed, it will be set automatically.

Hope this helps.

The Flash on my camera won't work


When taking pictures, you must really be allowing time for the camera's flash to be charged
before you could take another picture so that camera will have enough time to rest and it
could function normally.
But if the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like flash will not work properly.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Be in AUTO mode
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Turn it on and take a picture.
When you want to have just the AUTO FLASH.

- Rotate the mode dial to PROGRAM
- Press the LEFT/FLASH button until you've seen the
LIGHTNING icon with the Letter A on the leftmost part of the screen
- Try to take a picture by pressing and holding the shutter button
halfway first for 3-5 seconds and then press it all the way down

If it still does not work, you need to contact the Manufacturer.

Sony cyber shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera


I found an online manual for your camera. Page 84 talks about the USB Mode Normal with the 4 dots underneath. It also show a troubleshooting area for this and it is on page 96. Hopefully this will get your camera working right again. Here is the link to the pdf manual. http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW1.pdf
