    Do you mean the built-in flash or an external flash? If the latter, what model flash? What model Coolpix camera?

Certain coolpix cameras can accept an external flash, other models cannot.

If you have the built in flash, and that being your question: you need to activate it via the buttons on the back. Look for one that looks like a lightning bolt- that is your flash button. You will get choices of red eye reduction- three flashes, Aperture priority, flash always and no flash. It will be illuminated on the LCD screen as to the flash status,

If you are referring to an external flash, there should be a hot shoe on top of the camera, or a port for Flash Sync. If you have neither of those your camera is not able accept external flash- however you can use an external flash in "slave mode" if you have a flash that has that featurbe built in. Then it merely becomes a matter of placement to position the eye of the slave flash so it gets illuminated fromt he small flash on the camera.

My flash isn't working on my Coolpix 5700. I'm


Hi.

From what I have heard Nikon has recalled the Coolpix 5700 because of the SB error. It has something to do with a connector coming away from the printed circuit board. I recommend that you get in touch with Nikon and see if they will repair the flash for you. Click on the link below to contact them.

Flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12


I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

Help flash Nixon coolpix L11


hello,

make sure when you press the round selection button on the back of the camera flash option, you press the ok in the center of the button on the back.

it will show brief yellow AUTO in the LCD screen upper right corner for a sec.

when you are going to take a picture holding the shutter button half way down, you should see up at the right corner outside of the LCD screen a red led flashing to indicate flash is ready.

one thing to try if this is not working, find the camera reset option in the menu. after doing this you may have to reset the date & time. it will bring the camera back to default settings

on the bad side if these dont work, possible flash circuit may have failed inside the camera.

good luck!

Nikon CoolPix Flash Problem


This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.

Not a repairable situation here - the camera is a single piece. Nikon Technical Support will advise further.
