    Thank you! I did locate my manual and the error code signals a non-CPU lens attached, or that the lens is not attached...my lens was not fully attached.

I suppose you had turned the Mode-dial to P, S or A but did not set the aperture to the smallest, i.e. the largest value. This camera cannot control the diaphragm automatically if you do not do what I said before.

Canon T3 flash flutters and does not take pictures help!


The 'fluttering' is a pre flash used to help the camera focus in low light. The internal flash isn't a powerful flash and is usually only good enough for subjects up to about 2m away in reasonable light also to light a subject that is back lit. Try putting the camera in manual mode (M) 1/60sec on f5.6 flash popped up review it and make adjustments accordingly i.e. open up or shut down the aperture as the flash usually syncs at 1/60

After taking one picture with my Kodak Easyshare


I've had a similar problem with my Z1285.

The problem is probably weak batteries. The Z1285 requires really good batteries. Standard alkaline batteries don't last very long, perhaps a few dozen shots, less if you are using flash.

I've had success using lithium batteries, not the rechargeable type, but the disposable lithium. Specifically, the AA4 Energizer Ultimate Lithium.

Hope this helps.

Constant Charging Flash HP Photosmart R927 digital camera


First I'd try turning the flash off, a manual option on nearly all camera's. Take a couple of photo's without flash, and turn the camera off and on a couple of times then turn the flash back on to auto.

If that doesn't resolve the problem, I suggest going to the HP website, follow links to support and/or downloads and see if there's a firmware upgrade for your camera.

I cannot figure out how to turn off the flash on my canon sd450


You first need to change the operating mode to Manual. Then you can change the flash by pressing the right button a few times.

Screen goes blank after clicking a picture


This is the normal cycle time and it can increase if the batteries are a bit weak. This is one of the minor issues with this camera. You should only notice this when using a flash since it has to re-charge the flash circuit, without flash the picture should retuen in a second or less.

A whole new problem...


Did you fix the previous problem? If so, was it a missing or loose screw?

As for your current problem, you may have accidentally pressed the LCD display on/off button (it manually turns off the LCD display to save battery life). Turn on your camera and press the DISP button once. It's located on the back of your camera in the lower left corner.

Using flash freezes up camera


When taking pictures, you must really be allowing time for the camera's flash to be charged
before you could take another picture so that camera will have enough time to rest and it
could function normally.
But if the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like flash will not work properly.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Be in AUTO mode
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Turn it on and take a picture.
When you want to have just the AUTO FLASH.

- Rotate the mode dial to PROGRAM
- Press the LEFT/FLASH button until you've seen the
LIGHTNING icon with the Letter A on the leftmost part of the screen
- Try to take a picture by pressing and holding the shutter button
halfway first for 3-5 seconds and then press it all the way down

If it still does not work, you need to contact the Manufacturer.
