Question about Nikon COOLPIX L12 Digital Camera
I brought a Nikon COOLPIX L12 Digital Camera a few months back. one of my friends borrowed it from me and used it turning the flash light option off. when i tried to use it after that the flash light is not working and the perfection of picture (quality) seems to be not the same as earlier. i'd tried to solve the problem using the manual provided by the company, but failed.
hope someone can help
I know some of the common things for the digital camera. I want you to try these.
-------->If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
-------->Set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness.
IMPORTANT: If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
* When shooting MPEG movies
* When set to the Twilight mode
* If an external flash is connected
The information above should resolve your issue. However, if the issue still persists, you can try resetting the camera to factory specifications.
Some cameras have a RESET button built into them or a menu option to reset the camera to the default settings.
Refer to the instruction manual supplied with your camera for specific information regarding the availability of a RESET button or menu option to reset the default settings. Otherwise, continue with the manual reset procedure below.
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Ensure the camera is not connected to an AC power adapter.
3. Remove the battery from the camera for 15 seconds.
4. Reinsert the battery.
5. Turn on the camera.
If all the above fails you, then i doubt that Impact damage would have caused the flash not to work.
But i know you are not going to like this solution. No other way , you have to contact Nikon service centre for repair.
i hope this helps to fix your problem.
Thanx for using fixya.
