    If the battery is not powerful enough the flash won't fire.
    the first step will be to take the battery off and put it back and power back on.
    Next will be to do a reset by going into the menu.
    Hope this will help...Kevin.

Flash pops but doesnt fire


Still this is strange. Most of the time when I use the auto setting, I turn the main dial not on the green camera, but on the one between SCENE and the green logo. That prevent the flash to pop up. But still if you want to use the flash it should be possible.
Be aware that some settings the flash can't be used, f.i. when the shutter speed is to high. I would suggest to put al user settings back to standard and try to use the flash again. If it stalls again, try to read the display, if it gives anything of a warning or message.

My nikon D60 and the pop up flash dosent work


the flash pivot on the release side of the flash has a small cylinder that operates the flash up switch. If that cylinder is broken off or the pivot is pushed in so the switch doesn't close, then what you describe happens

pop up the flash and remove the two screws underneath, and you can pry off the cover - gently - to check the switch

Auto flash wont work


did it pop up automatically or did you pop it manually? if it popped up by itself then the flash unfortunately is probably dead, since on automatic, it won't pop unless it's going to fire. If you popped it manually then - the camera doesn't think that the flash is necessary for the conditions that you're shooting in.

D70 internal flash not firing


Check if something is preventing the flash to pop up 'fully'. Check for some dust or other particles trapped between the flash and the body. Does the screen say 'Subject is too dark'? If so, the flash has not popped up fully.

The flash on my d40x will no longer fire. the flash pops but nothing else happens! i have tried resetting but to no avail. i first noticed the problem while i was travelling so i couldn't send it off to be...


I do not want to speak down to you. If you pop up the flash and it does not fire it may be the mode. If the camera is in an auto mode and it feels there is NOT enough light to take the photo it will automatically pop up the flash and take the photo using flash. If it is in auto and it pops up the flash and it does not use it you may have a problem.

In most cases the best mode to use is P. In P mode (Programmed Auto) the flash NEVER automatically pops up (I find that very annoying). It will ONLY fire after you pop it up and take a photo. So with the camera in P. Take some photos with the flash down. Then try to take some photos with the flash up. It may also help to have fully charged batteries. Flash circuit uses lots of power for a short time to charge a capacitor. If the battery is too weak to charge the capacitor it will NOT fire the flash. It may have a RED LED or an INDICATOR in the View Finder that tells you the FLASH is READY.

Nikon d40 flash won't fire


If lightning bolt icon is blinking in viewfinder, flash is not ready. Either flash isnt popped up all the way or flash strobe tube is bad.

Pop-up flash


make sure after popping up the flash, you didn't change the mode into "no flash" mode....an easy way to check is put the flash back down, then proceed to take another photo. If the flash pops up again but did not flash, you have a faulty camera (assuming battery level is at least until the 1/3 mark).

Nikon coolpix 5700


The red dot beside SB means that the flash is not ready. If the flash does not pop-up, I would say something is jamming it -- and not allowing the flash to pop-up. If the flash does pop-up, but the red dot stays on, there is a problem with the flash. The simplest might be a battery that is almost dead. The flash has to "charge" before it will fire. I have to admit, you would notice this rather quickly as the camera would power down within a few shots -- even if the flash didn't fire.

Check the pop-up flash position and get back to me. I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.
