If the day time pictures are good then the setttings for the night shots must be selected according to the light intensity. Please check on the menu for night settings if you are intenting a low light shoot. Also make sure that the flash is active, in most of the present day samml cameras, the flash THROW is low and so the SUBJECT must not be too far as the picture will appear dark. So when using flash in a dark scene have the subject within 5-7 feet as the small flash will not be able to capture the openess. Also you can use a SLAVE flash to counter this and give a better prospective.
Hi. Turn on the camera and go into the menu and find the reset function. Reset it. That may solve your problem. If it does not, you could go for a repair or a replacement. Some shops will give you a free estimate. Joe
Get the camera sensor, the mirror and the lens attachment junction with the camera checked. And if you use the camera in auto mode, and there's ambient light, the camera wont fire the flash, coz of its auto light detecting sensor.
First make sure that the camera has fresh batteries. Then see that the flash setting is either 'on' or 'auto' or any graphic mode like a lightning bolt. If this doesn't help, the flash might be damaged. Any camera shop can check this quickly.
My solution would be to obtain a faulty Z5 with only a broken screen from eBay. Most sellers are pretty up front with detail. Swapping -out the screen is a 10min DIY job with a steady hand, a small tri-blade and small pozi. Detail can be made available. A clean camera is essential as it's replacing yours. The flash replacement is possible but far more difficult.
just read a post from someone else .sounds like a capacitor.it stores the charge for the flash he said he contacted moultrie and they dont send out parts , mine is doing the same thing sounds like it is time to try a different brand,this sounds like a problem that they will only fix under waranty no recalls like automobiles would have ,to bad they are going to lose cstomers over such a small problem they dont want to deal with.
there is recovery software available , most of the time it costs some money but does the trick very well just google photorecovery and XD * (*= replace this for the correct card type) and read the reviews most of the time you need a cartreader but those are not expensive
It is eathe the bulb or the flash circuit. if you are going to fix it yourself watch out for the flash compasitor. If you are going to send it in watch the cost. It sould be fairly cheap to have fixed.
On camera flash will not help in out door sports facilities.
If you have maxed the ISO and set it to Aperture priority -which will slow the shutter down and give you camera shake and blurred images as the players dart about- Ho Hum you ain't going to win this one.
Buying a bolt on flash I doubt will be powerful enough either,
take what you can and get to grips with a good image editor- Though I guess the results will still be 'noisy'
