My camera doesnt' work indoors. i try to take a picture and it doesnt' take when I'm in AUTO mode. However, when I'm in LANDSCAPE mode the pic will take. it seems like the flash isn't active in AUTO...


You must have a software glitch because the flash is supposed to be in the auto mode when the selector is in auto, unless you manually turn the flash off and the flash should go back to auto every time the camera is turned off and back on. Here's a work around. Turn the dial to indoor and use the flash button on the ring to set the flash to auto. In the indoor setting you can set the flash to on, off, or auto.

Hi. Turn on the camera and go into the menu and find the reset function. Reset it. That may solve your problem. If it does not, you could go for a repair or a replacement. Some shops will give you a free estimate. Joe

When taking pics my camera pic are a white blur how do i fix it?


Back up from what you are photographing, and turn your flash off or onto auto. You do this by lightly tapping the little Lightening bolt in the lower right corner of the LCD screen and repeat as necessary until the yellow lightning bolt on the left side of the screen either has a red circle on it w/ a light through it (off) or a capitol A beside it (auto). I prefer auto, because I take most of my photos outdoors and it's hard to tell if a flash is necessary under a tree when its really sunny, or on a really cloudy day @ the beach...(sunny day in the shade-flash. Cloudy &rainy beach? No flash, not ever!) There is a problem w/ the cameras flash system though, you can set it on auto thinking that you can just click away & let the camera handle the flash like you can on most cameras, but the Vivitar almost always has to have the flash reset after every single photo, but then every once in a while it stays on the same setting all day long!

Blue tint to all my photos


You may have the white balance set to something other than "auto white balance". If the pics look ok on the camera and on your computer, but the prints are blue, I would suspect the printer.

You may have too many photos on the card, did you try deleting the ones off the card after you put them on your computer?

Canon A640 flash problem


I sent my camera into Canon for repair. They said the flash was malfunctioning, and there was something wrong with the flash exposure control. The repair cost about $87. It took approximately 10 days from the time I sent the camera in until the time I got it back.

Camera memory card errors/computer doesn't recognize


Can you get a memory card reader that works for a Mac? If so then loading pic's to the 'puter through that route Flashing red and green lights have a meaning- what does the manual say?[Check the more comprehensive manual on the Software disk] You could buy[or borrow] another card- nothing wrong with having more that one. Also try the card in another camera and a fresh card in yours[Take it a photo shop to try this]
