First try a hard reset - Remove batteries and SD card. Wait about 10 minutes and try again. If the issue is still there, it could be some faulty battery contacts or firmware issue.
Try to clean the battery contacts in the camera using isoproyl alcohol. You can also try scratching the contacts a bit with a jeweller's screw driver and see if it works.
If it is a firmware issue, then you may need to take it back to the store to get the firmware reinstalled or upgrade from the manufacturer's website (they usually give instructions on how to do this on the website.

Hope that helps!

The flash on my camera is not working!!!!


If the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like flash will not work properly.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Be in AUTO mode
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Turn it on and take a picture.
When you want to have just the AUTO FLASH.

- Rotate the mode dial to PROGRAM
- Press the LEFT/FLASH button until you've seen the
LIGHTNING icon with the Letter A on the leftmost part of the screen
- Try to take a picture by pressing and holding the shutter button
halfway first for 3-5 seconds and then press it all the way down
Hope this one helps.

The Flash on my camera won't work


When taking pictures, you must really be allowing time for the camera's flash to be charged
before you could take another picture so that camera will have enough time to rest and it
could function normally.
But if the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like flash will not work properly.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Be in AUTO mode
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET

Changing the clock


Try this, which works for most Pioneer car radios, they say.

Turn key to ignition on or accessories position, turn radio off. A time should be displayed, and maybe it is incorrect.

Press the Function key and hold it for 3 seconds and the hour will flash. Use either the up/down or the left/right button to change the time. When finished, I think you push the Function key again.

DMC-FX01 Flash Does Not Work


In what mode are you trying to take photos? The flash will not work in certain modes (see the manual), for example the night mode. Or you accidentialy turned on sequential/burst mode (this is mode where camera takes more pictures on one shutter button press). Flash cannot be used in this mode also. I don't have FX01, but on FZ8 the camera will show flash icon in red, but will take the picture anyway without flash being triggered. The second problems seems like enabled power-saving mode, but those 5 seconds are too short for this. But anyway you can check in SETUP menu the settings for power-save. Also maybe the flash is broken and camera noticed it... I don't think this could be a software problem. Either problem with the flash, but more probably just setting of wrong mode.
