    I have the same problem. The camera has not been dropped, has not been in use for years, I've only had it 14 months and don't use the flash a great deal and when I do it's been the soft flash setting. Of course the obvious thing to do is get it repaired, I'm just saying that I've experienced the same problem. Could it be a fault with this particular model?

    My camera will not turn on.  The battery is charged but when I try to turn it on the screen is black and the lens go out half way.  Is there any way I can reset my camera?

  • alinerajao Nov 24, 2007

    My flash doesnt work too from the day I bought the camera. The orange light in the front turns on but the picture is not taken. So, in dark places I never can take pictures. The camera cant take pictures when the flash is set to on or automatic.
    Do you think that can be a configuration problem??

    The flash stopped working, no known cause. Tried to reset but did not make a difference. Is it worth the price to get it fixed or am I better off just getting a new camera?

    Not only has my flash stopped working, but I also have the problem with my battery door not closing properly. I have tried to reset the flash, but it does nothing. The battery door, well.... I just try to hold it shut with my thumb while I am taking a picture. I have had the camera for awhile and I loved it up to this point. Please help!

  • laxlyss Aug 04, 2008

    I have an exilim EX-Z57... I've had it for about two years...I dropped it a few times.. a few dents here and there. I tart up the camera fully charged and it takes pictures...only without flash. Since pictures look better with flash on my camera, I'm naturally pissed. I am just wondering would the drops have done it? If anyone knows explain the science behind it ( circuit board for ex.) 


    I'd like to know any ways t fix it myself.
    And if not, who I should go to for help for something cheap and efficient.
    How much do you think it would cost?

The flash bulb or tube does not go off suddenly. it gets weak after yers of usege or breaks only if the camera is dropped. most of the flash related problems occour for non charging of the flash. pls contact local repairer for this problem

I have had this problem.  HP support was useless.  My problem occured just before the warrantee expired, so I called HP and they suggested that the battery wasn't supplying a sufficient charge.  They gave me a free battery and it worked for a month, then the flash stopped working again.  I called them back, but they now said I was out of warrantee and pointed me to a page of refurbished cameras that I could purchase.  Thanks, but no thanks.  They label says made in China, so I suspect substandard Capacitors that power the flash have failed.  I still use the camera as a backup when I don't need to use a flash the flash.  I've opened up the camera to locate the capacitor, but found too many connectors and didn't have the time go completely disassemble the whole thing.  I've put it back and it still works.

I will no longer buy HP products.  Their customer service is lacking and they have lost me as a customer.

My flash is not working. the icon keeps flashing for a long time before taking the picture before it takes a picture. I've reset the settings and tried all the different modes and cannot get ii to...


I found this somewhere else and I was surprised that it worked. Reset to default settings. Press menu, arrow right to the tool menu. Arrow down to Reset All, arrow right to yes.
I had tried different batteries, even alkaline to get it to work thinking that my batteries were old and weren't charging the flash. I saw that someone had done the reset all to fix it. I did it and tried to take a picture, the icon flash twice and then the flash charged up and took the picture. I replaced the batteries to lithium and now it charges up right away. I hope that helps.

Flash will not work


Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.

Flash does not work


Please note that:

1. You can not use the Flash when the Camera is set to Burst or Multi Burst mode.

2. You can not use the Flash when the ISO or Twilight mode is selected in the Scene Selection.

3. You can not use the Flash when mode dial is set to Movie.

Also try these steps and check:

4. Ensure that the battery is fully charged and the flash is turned ON.

Please set the Landscape mode or Snow mode or Beach mode in the Scene Selection and check if the flash is working.

5. Try initializing the Camera and check if it works normally.

NOTE: Initializing the Camera will reset the settings of the Camera to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camera.

6. Please press the Menu button on the Camera. Then, select the SETUP menu and select the SETUP 1 option of the Camera. Then, select the Initialize option to OK.

7. Try to power reset the Camera and check if it helps to resolve the issue. I suggest that you reset the Camera by removing the battery from the Camera and inserting it after 1 minute.

8. If the issue still persists then the Camera requires service.


Good Luck!!!!!!!

My pictures turn out fuzzy all the time and i can't figure out how to turn on my flash. Please Help! Casio Exilim EX-Z70


Flash should turn on by pressing the "Set" button and then the down arrow until you get to the flash menu. Choose the setting that looks like a lightning bolt.

If that doesn't work press the "Menu" button and then press the "right arrow" until you are on the far right tab. Press the "up arrow" until you come to "Reset." Press the "Right arrow." The camera will ask you if you want to reset it. Tell it "Yes." This will take it back to factory settings and clear any mode that turns the flash off.

Are the pictures fuzzy because the flash isn't working? Are outdoor pictures in daylight fuzzy or OK? If they are fuzzy all the time you may have a lens problem. If they are only fuzzy when the flash is needed, fixing your flash should cure the problem.

I have a photosmart m547 camera and the flash will not work battery is ok, will take photos without the flash


Hey sheila-day,
I would make sure you have not inadvertently turned the flash off. When the camera is set to picture capture mode press the flash button, which looks like a jagged arrow, and use the left/right arrow keys to set the flash to the desired setting which I would suggest just leaving it on auto flash mode. If this doesn't work I would try resetting the camera back to the factory default setting, which can be done by removing the battery and the memory card and waiting at least 5 seconds and then reinserting them. If neither of these options work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Flash not working


I had the same problem with my flash not working on any setting, but I found a way to fix it: hit the menu button, make sure the "rec mode" choice is set to normal instead of burst. I think the burst mode takes multiple shots in a row, so the flash isn't compatible with that setting?
