Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z850 Digital Camera

Flashing Red Light

About every other time I turn on my camera, the red light next to the viewfinder flashes and the camera won't respond. The problem is resolved if i turn the camera off and back on again, and it then works fine. Like I said, it seems strangely regular--every other time I turn on the camera. Any ideas?

    In low lighting, my Exilim 8.1 won't take a picture if I have the auto flash setting on.  The red light on the back of the camera continually flashes, like it's busy.  When I try to take the picture, nothing happens.  The only way I can get the picture to take is to turn the flash off... and then, it's blurry, due to low lighting.  It didn't do this when I first got it, and I don't know what's different now. I've tried recharging, removing then reinstalling the battery, changing memory cards... nothing I've found works... except to turn the flash off, and take blurry pictures.  Any suggestions?  Did I change some setting without realizing it?

When I try to take a pic, the camera beeps and a red light flashes.


Hi. Based on your brief description of the problem I would think that the camera is failing to focus and the flashing red light in the viewfinder is the auto-focus indicator, make sure that the red auto-focus indicator is positioned in the centre of the viewfinder initially until you have experience of using it (to do this consult your camera manual) focus on a subject that has some contrast ie a red brick wall, grass or pebbles on a beach.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area...


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.

The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This may not necessarily be an error.. just a setting that you have put in place in your menu.

Red flashing indicator in viewfinder of my Canon XL1E


Hi . .  I downloaded the manual . . found I needed to replace the 3 volt lithium battery located on the underside of the hand grip for the zoom. Changed the battery . . . No red flashing icon in the viewfinder.
Cheers

Flashing Red Light....


The flashing "boat" in the middle of the viewfinder just means the button battery is dead. Camera will still work. It's the little pull-out light grey plastic thing that's next to the heel of your right hand when you're using the camera normally. You need a CR2025 cell.

Do you have a viewfinder and a screen? The screen won;t show anything if you have the viewfinder turned on.

Camera Turns off and flashes light soon after turning on then freezes


I have exactly the same problem and I found, that it is probably related to rechargable batteries. If I use normal batteries, everything works fine. Confusing is, that I used to use rechargable ones all the time, but errors started few days ago. I also have two sets of rechargable batteries, but both are useless now. Maybe that camera is getting old and it needs fresh 4x1,5V from normal batteries instead of 4x1,2V from rechargable ones.
