Question about Kodak EasyShare LS443 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No pictures recorded/black screen

Camera appears to be working correctly but when the button the take the pictures is partly depressed, a red light flashes indicating you cannot take a picture. If you fully depress the button to take the picture anyway, the flash goes off but no image is recorded. Only a black screen is visible on the camera and on the computer if this "picture" is downloaded. Shutter is fully open. Batteries have just been replaced. Memory card and internal memory have both been formatted. I have been through the entire menu onscreen and everything appears to be in order. Camera was used one day and worked great, next day this problem occurred.

It seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.

Why does my canon eos rebel t3 not take a picture when the shutter button is depressed but tje red eye reduction button keeps flashing and the video still works?


Usually, it means that the timer function has been turned on, and the camera is going through a countdown to trigger the shutter.

After that, it means that something else is not working correctly. If video works and records, then you know that the sensor and memory are functioning correctly. At that point, check to see whether your camera and lens are set for the form of autofocus or manual focus you want and that the aperture is still functioning correctly.

At some point, switch the camera to an all manual settings mode and try the shutter switch. If it still does not take a picture, the switch may have a problem.

How do i shoot a video on this camera? I set it on Video and depress button but it only shoots a picture. I have no manual.


You have to push the button with the red dot directly behind the camera and you will see the record selection on the top right hand side of the screen and the time couner will start to progress on the bottom right side of the screen.
If you depress the shutter button you will only take one snapshot of what you are trying to video.
hope this helps

When shutter depressed "AF" and "SB" LED's flash


My camera's shutter will not depress all the way due to a red flash light coming up all the time in the Flash-Ready indicator lamp (refer to pag 28 in the Nikon manual). It can be full sun outside but it will not work due to the red flash light coming on.

A work around is to select a flash mode of 'cancel'.
There is a button toward the front of your camera called the flash mode button. Click that until you see strike mark on the flash icon of your monitor screen (see page 32 in the Nikon manual).

The camera must have a malfunction of determining the lighting so it always thinks you need to have a flash on the picture. Of course this is not 'fixing' the flash/lighting issue but you can take typical day pictures for now with this work around.

Hello, I went and researched a few points in the manual and hope this helps to some extent. If this doesn't help, try resetting your camera by removing the batteries for 30 seconds, then reinstalling them and turning on the camera again.
Monitor is blank:
• Camera is off.
• Batteries are not correctly inserted or battery-chamber
cover is not properly latched.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• EH-62B AC adapter (available separately) is not properly
connected.
• Camera is in sleep mode. Press shutter-release button
halfway.
• Monitor is off.
• USB cable is connected.
• AV/Video cable is connected


No picture is taken when shutter release button is pressed:


• Camera is in playback mode.
• Batteries are exhausted.
• Red (!) lamp flickers: flash is charging.
• Green (AF) lamp flickers: camera unable to focus.
• Message "CARD IS NOT FORMATTED" appears in
monitor: memory card is not formatted for use in your
camera.
• Message "OUT OF MEMORY" appears in monitor:

A95 LCD screen black and unable to take photos


There are quite a few of us with symilar problem, but the screen is not completely black: it has some purple or pinkish color when facing light. Old pics and menu can still be viewed. I noticed 4 symilar threads on Canon A95 within the last 5 mins without any search, just looking at the top questions.

Shutter wont' release


Well either the relase switch has failed or another projection device has stalled it. Check through you menu of the back screen to be sure and then call Pentax technical support on thier web site.
