Flash will not stay set

I am having a problem with my flash. I can set the flash to auto, but after I take a picture the flash will return to off. The same happens when i set the flash to on. No matter what the flash will automatically turn off even if the camera remains on. I appreciate any help on this.

Re: Flash will not stay set

This happens when there is not enough juice on the battery. Your battery may not be able to hold enough capacity anymore. Try another battery. Tip: Do you know that the battery of this camera is exactly the same as the battery of some old model nokia? (6150,8510, etc)

My pictures are blury and I am tired of it.

First make sure you're on Auto mode (press SCENE and choose AUTO mode)
Use permanent flash by pressing UP until the flash logo gets selected, then press OK.
Also, if you don't want to use the flash, put the flash on AUTO and press menu, go to "Set up", scroll to "Anti-shake AE" and set it to "Auto", press OK to save settings and try taking pictures again.

No flash in "P" mode

In all of modes you can use "up" key to toggle between "always on", "auto"  and "off" mode for flash. (in some mode there is only auto and off.) also the flash light icon on top right of screen shows th status of flash. I hope this helps...

Optio s - flash problem in low light

Read the photo data (EXIF) and confirm what setting the flash was in. It may have been set to off by mistake. For close indoor shots I usually don't depend on the Auto setting, just manually force the flash on to get proper lighting. If you use the Auto setting take into consideration the white balance and the type of indoor lighting you are using.
