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.

TV Won't turn on, Has flashing red light.

Flashes of standby light is fault indication. Count it and confirm the number of flashes occurs at one time switch ON. If you wish to get more details about these blinking codes to Toshiba sets, check this link. Pull up older posts there.

Daughter opened battery area under water accidentally. dried it. red light at battery flashing. Can it be fixed??

The good news is, the flashing red light on your camera means that the camera itself did not short-circuit and still may work. If it's flashing red next to a battery logo or it is a flashing battery logo that could indicate that the battery itself is fried and you would need to purchase a new battery. You can find camera batteries for cheap on websites such as Amazon.com

The camera won.t turn on the battery charger blinks red when trying to charge both of my battreies

I had the same problem with flashing red light on my charging dock (within 10 sec after 2nd green light came on). I did fix it. There is a rust brown securing tab that holds the battery in place. Mine must have a broken spring..... So, I put the battery into my camera, pushed securing tab over the battery and then wedged a toothpick tip to keep battery tab in place. Once back on the charger, I had no more flashing red light. The battery is charging correctly. The problem was that the battery was not held down into place correctly. I now just have to unwedge the toothpick tip to remove the battery...but not really an issue at all as I keep the battery in there all the time. Very easy fix!!!
Others suggested to reseat the plastic dock. But mine was secure. Somewhere there is not a good battery connection that is causing the red flashing light. I am thankful to figure it out. Hope this helps you.

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.

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.
