If it flashes when you take any photo then you have the flash set to manual override for each shot or you're just shooting in areas too dark for any photos without the flash. Check your flash settings or try a factory default reset from the camera's menu options.

It's on the "Mode dial" the big wheel on the right up-hand side of your camera. Find the symbol with a person running.
Or you can read the manual in the following link. It's on page 15.

Hope this helps.

The best solution I have known for recovering lost files due to formatted discs or cards has been Sandisk's software called RescuePro. It is well known to recover files that have been formatted once, twice, or more. To me, it's worth the 40 bucks versus never getting that moment back. Here's the link: http://www.sandisk.com/products/software-and-services/data-recovery

Instead of green auto mode set to P mode and chagne the flash setting to non auto.If flash is is in auto mode flash will not fire and picture will be blurry.So your flash must fire every time (and it must not be decided by camera's auto flash mode).
I am sure this will solve your settings.
Please rate if satisfied.

Dear Bobby,

Your concerns about the mechanical/physical integrity of the components may be valid. However, it could be a simpler, and less stressful problem altogether.

I recommend, you get hold of a micro-fibre cloth. And, blow at the lens, and clean it in circular directions. As your camera appears to be quite old, I recommend cleaning the lens, as it could have gathered dirt, or dust.

There is no focus sensor, as such. There is however an autofocus motor. Which could be the problem. However, let's take it one step at a time.

Hope I was of assistance.

Regards,

Rebel K.

The DSC-H3 does not contain any charging circuitry. You could hook it up to a nuclear reactor and it won't charge the battery. You need to use a separate charger, such as this one.

Sadly formatted pictures are permanently deleted from the device, unless a copy of the photo exists on SD card the data of the photo has been erased :(

A virus usually doesn't harm the camera. But a virus can reside in the memory card do crazy things; specially when you connect the camera to your PC.

Go into the menu and under either settings or tools there should be an option to format the memory card. Alternatively you can plug the memory card into your pc open its folder under my computer select all of the images(press control and a) then delete.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Hi,

Check if the Flash unit in the Camera is popping up automatically.
Check if the Flash is set to Flash Forced Off. If it is set to Off, then set it to Forced On.
Please check if the Camera is not set to the following settings:
REC MODE is set to Burst or Exposure bracket mode.
Scene Selections modes like:
ISO High Sensitivity mode.
Advanced Sports Shooting mode.
Twilight mode.
Fireworks mode.
Set the flash to Flash Forced On when the mode dial is set to M or when Landscape mode, Beach mode or Snow mode is selected in Scene Selection mode.

This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.
