Troubleshooting
Randomly spaced 
bright pixels (“noise”) 
appear in image.
The subject is dark and the shutter speed is too slow 
or ISO sensitivity is too high. Noise can be reduced by:
• Using the flash
• Specifying a lower ISO sensitivity setting
Images are too dark 
(underexposed).
• The flash mode is set to W (off).
• The flash window is blocked.
• The subject is beyond the range of the flash.
• Adjust exposure compensation.
• Increase ISO sensitivity.
• The subject is backlit. Select Backlighting scene 
mode or set the flash mode setting to X (fill flash).
Images are too bright 
(overexposed).
Adjust exposure compensation.
Unexpected results 
when flash set to V 
(auto with red-eye 
reduction).
Use any shooting mode other than Night portrait
and change the flash mode to any setting other than 
V (auto with red-eye reduction) and try taking the 
picture again.
Skin tones are not 
softened.
• Under some shooting conditions, facial skin tones 
may not be softened.
• For images containing four or more faces, try 
using Skin softening in Glamour retouch in the 
playback menu.
Saving images takes 
time.
It may take more time to save images in the following 
situations:
• When the noise reduction function is in operation, 
such as when shooting in a dark environment
• When the flash mode is set to V (auto with red-
eye reduction)
• When capturing images in the following scene modes:
Hand-held in Night portrait
Hand-held in Night landscape
HDR is set to ON in Backlighting
Easy panorama
• When the skin softening function is applied while 
shooting
• When using continuous shooting mode
A ring-shaped belt or 
rainbow-colored stripe 
appears on the screen 
or images.
When shooting with backlighting or when a very 
strong light source (such as sunlight) is in the frame, 
a ring-shaped belt or rainbow-colored stripe 
(ghosting) may occur. Change the position of the 
light source, or frame the picture so that the light 
source does not enter the frame, and try again.
