A Taking Pictures
22
The image comes out dark even if the flash fired when shooting?
The subject is too far away for the flash to reach. Shoot within the effective flash 
range of approximately 30 cm – 4.0 m (12 in. – 13 ft.) at maximum wide angle, 
and approximately 30 cm – 2.0 m (12 in. – 6.6 ft.) at maximum telephoto.
The indicator blinks yellow and the camera beeps once when the shutter 
button is pressed halfway?
When the camera is at maximum wide angle, move about 3 cm (1.2 in.) or more 
away from your subject and shoot. Move about 30 cm (12 in.) or more away 
when the camera is at maximum telephoto.
The lamp lights when the shutter button is pressed halfway.
To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may light when shooting in 
dark areas.
The screen turns off when you try to take an image?
When flash recharging begins, the screen turns off. The screen turns on again 
when recharging ends.
Scene Icons
The camera displays an icon for the scene it has determined and then 
automatically focuses and selects the optimum settings for subject 
brightness and color.
* Displays when the camera is attached to a tripod.

Under certain conditions, the icon that displays may not match the actual 
scene. Especially when there is an orange or blue colored background (a 
wall for example), 
 or the “Blue Skies” icons may appear and it may 
not be possible to shoot with the appropriate color. If this happens, try 
shooting in the 
G mode (p. 64).
