If that camera has a problem, the low battery symbol will flash as a warning to tell you that it is not working properly. Kind of like the "Check Engine" light in your car. It tells you something is not working, but doesn't give you any clue what it is!

Check to make sure the pop-up flash is not sticking down when it is supposed to be popping up. That is the most common cause for that problem. Also, check the shutter blades in the film compartment to make sure they haven't been pushed out of their tracks when you were loading film.

If neither one of those is causing the problem, take it to a local camera repair shop and have them check it out.

My remote is red light is flashing. I changed the batter and the battery in the unit is working. I can turn on the fireplace manually

  • The usual indication for a flashing light is a low battery. Suggest checking the remote again. Especially for corrosion at the battery terminals.
  • When you operate the remote will the receiver flash its LED indicator confirming that the command has been received.
  • The manual operation of the receiver located at the fireplace likely does not require batteries. For remote control operation good batteries are required.
  • If the red LED on the receiver is flashing the batteries need to be replaced.
  • If the LED at the receiver indicated that the command is received check the wires to the control valve from the receiver. The voltage is a very very low a millivolt signal.

charging flash:-
POSSIBLE CAUSE:The camera is recharging the flash.
