It means that the battery is charging the flash! Wait a while and it should stop. Then take your photo.

Do make sure your battery is fully charged.

Hello Kate, See if you can find an internet cafe. I was reading the white balance section of your manual and there is nothing that stops your camera from taking pictures if the white balance is off. Turn your camera off, remove your batteries for about 30 seconds and let it reset to default. Then try inserting the batteries and see if this helps. I wouldn't mind sending you this manual if you can provide an email address. Or a link to go to is: www.olympus.com, then select americas, then select support, then select your camera, then download your manual in PDF format. I wouldn't want your vacation ruined either.

Could be not enough light to take a picture, low battery, auto focus hasn't completed, etc.

Flashing green light


hello,are you sure that you have not left your camera flash on,and virtually killed off the battery?as the zig zag icon usually refers to mostly flash related aspects of most modern cameras,all cameras need a certain base level battery power,before they will switch on for use,but may well display all manner of icon's and oddity's when the power is all consumed.hope that helps, cheers.

Hello, i have a sony cybershot DSC-S650. Expert, my problem is that when i turn my Sony Cybershot on the lens won't look at nothing, it's ust a blackscreen. Can you please help me. Thank you, My...


Make sure that the batteries in the camera are good and turn it on. Is there a light that comes on to let you know that the camera has power and is ready when you press the power button? Does that light come on and what color is it?

If the light ends up green, then you know the batteries are good and the camera is functioning properly and is ready to take a picture. If this is the case, then after you turn it on - look on the back of the camera for the focus zoom in and out buttons. Sometimes they look like a switch that you can rock right or left. Press the switch and look through the lens. Does press the switch or arrows in either direction clear up your view and allow you to see anything? Are you looking through the lens hole or are you using a small screen to view on the back of the camera? If you are looking at a screen on the back of the camera and that screen is black - it means that you dont have the exterior view option turned on in the cameras settings. Sometimes there is a button labeled "view" on the back of the camera to alternate from the exterior view screen on the back of the camera and using the lens hole view at the top. Press that key to make the view screen turn on. If this option is not turned on yet, press the menu key on the camera and use the arrow keys to scroll through the option choices until you find the image preview choices and turn this option on. Then save this choice and close the menu features to see if it comes on.

If you are not getting a power indicator light when you turn the camera on, then replace the batteries. If the light comes on and its something other then green and steady - (like red and flashing) check your camera manual to see what this indicator means. Some cameras show a red light that is flashing when you turn them on to indicate that the memory card is full. Some camera have a red light that is steady to indicate that the battiers are almost out of power and they will show a picture on the digital to indicate how much power you have left before they shut down. Each model camera is different according to the options it came with.

A red lightning arrow keeps flashing on the screen and the camera isn't doin anything,what can the problem be?


Hi.

A red flashing lightening bolt can mean different things on different camera's. The most common are that you are too far away from the object you want to take a picture of. That the flash on the camera needs to be turned off and that the flash itself is charging up and won't allow a picture to be taken.

Try turning the flash off and see if it will let you take a picture.




Regards.

It willnot let me take a picture a green dot comes on the top left


Your probably having the same problem as me, the flash isnt working. You should still be able to take pictures if you disable flash. So when it's on and your ready to take a pic, hit the right arrow key till it shows the swiggly downward arrow icon as of, looks like a no smoking icon, lol.

Flashing red symbol on screen - not 'no cassette loaded' symbol.


I had the same problem with my ZR800. After lots of searching on the net I found out what the symbol indicates. It means that the little battery that holds the memory for the clock is weak. It's under a little cover behind the main battery compartment. I put in a new one that the flashing icon is gone. I put the battery I took out into another ZR800 and the icon started flashing on it. A simple solution that Canon should have posted in the manual.

Covergence out of alignment on 1/4 Vertical left side of screen


You need to manually adjust the alignment:
On remote, press Menu to get to the main menu
Then arrow down to "ADVANCED FEATURES"
Then press "enter"
Then Arrow down to "CONVERGENCE" and press "enter"
"Red Convergence" should be highlighted
Press "enter"
You now have Green, Red, and Blue overlapping crosses.
If Red is out of whack, use arrows to align
To toggle to blue (and back to red), press "VIDEO"
Then align blue cross
Once the crosses look aligned, and nice and white, press "AUDIO"
This will bring up the Advanced Convergence screen
This is a grid of the same overlapping colors
You have control over the Red and Blue
If Green is very out of whack, you'll need a repairman…
While the "target" is flashing, you can move it around the screen with the arrows
Place it over an intersection to adjust, then press "enter"
Now the "target" is steady (not flashing), and you can use the arrows move your color
When it's aligned, press "enter" again
Now "target is flashing, and you can go to the next square.
You cannot adjust every intersection.
Some areas need to be adjusted via the adjacent intersection
When you're happy with color you're working on,
Press "video" while target is flashing to change to the other color
Repeat the above (blue is much harder to see and adjust for me…)
When you're happy with the entire grid, start hitting "Menu"
Each press brings you back out one menu level, until you are out of them
Once you're used to the process, it should take no more than a minute or two.
