    Flash doesn't work on my Stylus 410 either.... Is there any way to fix it, or get parts?

  • Anonymous Nov 29, 2007

    The camera has worked great for over a year but the flash no longer works so it stopped taking photos in the Auto mode and any flash mode. It still works fine in the No Flash mode. i imagine the labor cost to repair exceeds the cost to replace. If it's the bulb, I'd like to buy the bulb attempt to replace it mayself. If others have had the same problem and already found that it's not the bulb then I'll pass it to my kids and get something new. Has anyone identified the cause?

    My Olympus 410 will also take pictures but the flash has stopped working. Out of guarantee now and very irritating. Looks like a design fault.

It is a problem that has happened to 2 out of 2 of my Stylus 410's. Olympus will not reapir them unless they are under warrenty (or for $175). I filed with the BBB...we'll see if that helps. They really need to recall them. Good luck. =)

FZ-100 shows number +/- 1-1/3 next to the flash icon in circle, what does that mean, flash is working ok but seams not enough flash power

This probably means the flash power is set to 1/3 of the full flash power.
Go into the camera's Menu and change the flash setting.
If you cannot find how to change this setting, then remove the battery for 15 mins, replace the battery then go to the camera's Menu to set the Date & Time. the camera will be restored to the default settings.

Camera still dead with a new charged battery. Is it possible to overcharge a battery so it won't work?

If you have another battery definitely give it a try, most likely it won't work either. The problem is probably the fuse located on the DC/DC board that has 'blown' causing there to be no power. Replace the board and the camera should work fine. Canon will probably charge $175 or so for the repair.

Hope this helps.

When i try to turn my camera on it flashes a small red light and then it won't turn on, how do i fix this?


The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.

If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.

You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.

While using it, suddenly the flash didn't work anymore in my S4,everithin else is working, may be there is a problem with flash lamp?

First try with new batteries as power received will be less as the batteries gets older and so flashes might not be working well.
If you still face the same problem even after changing the batteries, then there is a problem with flash lamp.

Hope this helps.

Flash setting doesn't work

Does your camera gave a small battery in place somewhere that is used to maintain the date and time settings? (it is generally a watch battery type small flat silver disk.) You should not have to reset time and date after each battery change.

Many digital cameras eat up batteries quickly, especially when using the flash alot., that is why it is important to use good quality rechargeables whenever possible.

Shutter button causes camera to turn off

It is usually a battery strength issue. Try this, set the flash to "no flash" mode and try to take a shot. If it works with the flash set to "off", the batteries are probably not strong enough to power up the flash and shoot. If that doesn't work, try really, really GOOD batteries. Most of my customers with this problem solve the issue with Energizer Lithium AA batteries. We sell lots of these batteries, and it usually solves the problem.

Flash is acting weird...

The problem with troubleshooting is that you have to try different things to see what changes when you do something different. Try new batteries, then try another set, then connect the flash to another camera and see if you have the same results. In my opinion, I'd have to say that it's probably the flash but like anything else, you have to try different things. Try using a different flash unit to determine if it's a flash issue or a camera hot-shoe issue. Once you find the culprit, then either replace the flash (hopefully this is the issue because it's cheaper) or it may unfortunately be the body. Hope this helps... just try a few things and cancel out what's working vs. what's not working.

Canon Powershot SD550 flash not working

most likely it could be stuck

you can try prying up the flash a bit not to much.

otherwise its broken, the gears that runs it, could have a broken tooth.

so it wont pop up or go up.
