Everytime i turn on my vivicam 7024 and press the flash it says "marco mode no flash". how can i fix it?

The macro mode is for taking pictures of subjects very close to the camera. In this mode the flash does not operate.

There's a slide switch on the end of camera. Slide it away from the flower and toward the mountain to take the camera out of macro mode.

My Panasonic DMC-FZ7 is frozen in Cinema Mode. Everytime I turn it on-its automatically there however there is no operating function?? Ive hit a dead end....anyone with answers??

On my FZ20, cinema or movie mode is selected by the rotating knob on the top of the camera near the shutter button (along with all the other modes). The symbol looks like a film frame. Turn the knob to P or A.

Your camera is set at twilnight mode which has the flash suppressed and you won't be able to turn it on because of the fixed setting of twilnight mode to get the proper result of the picture. Due to the mode setting requirement, a shakey hand icon and no flash icon will show. If you press the flash mode button, it beeps. The twilnight setting has a low shutter speed, i.e. the shutter opens longer to allow more lights in, therefore it shows recording to let you know that the shutter is still open, and any moment of the camera will result in a blurred picture.
Now, check your camera mode dial and turn it back to the 'green' camera and see if you can get the flash to fire.

Camera Help? Please!!

You can download a new manual from Sakar:

The 'Mode' button is the On/Off. Press it and it will beep, signifying that it is on. To turn OFF, press the mode button until OF shows in the display, then the picture button turns it off.

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.
