    Camera will not turn on and blinks H all the time

  • turiddu Jan 28, 2008

    My camera turns on and off. It flashes the H message when I turn it on. When I turn it off it shows 0, "empty film cartridge".

    yes, I have the same problem. But my camera also will not rewind the film when it is used up. Any help? In the past I have rewound the cartridge by hand after removing it under a dark drape. Today I noticed a rewind button on the bottom of the camera, that may solve my second problem, but the H flashes and camera will not turn on. display also show good battery and film inside.

I've done some research and found out that the flashing H is Electronic failure and needs repair.

When you turn the camera on and you are on the main screen, use the last touch screen button at the bottom marked with a lighting bold. If you hit it it once, the flash is automatic, if you hit it twice it is always on.

Flash problem

I believe you're pushing the wrong button. The way to turn the flash on/off is to push the top part of the ring that surrounds the "FUNC SET" button. This is the same ring that you push left/right to scroll backward/forward through the pictures you've already taken. Similarly, you push the bottom of that ring to turn the "macro" function on/off. Hope this helps.
