Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50K Digital Camera
Not able to use built in flash (forced flash off appears)
Are you sure that flash is not forced off in the settings? Try shooting in A, with lenses covered. It should fire. If not, it needs servicing beyond forums capabilities.

If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera flash may be turned off or it is set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly lit environments. To turn on the flash so it works regardless of the lighting situation, press the flash button on the camera (or touch-screen LCD, if equipped) until the forced flash icon appears on the LCD screen. The flash button has a lightning bolt symbol on it
If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:

The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).
