Not able to change flash setting - button not working

Everything else about the camera appears to be working fine, but when I try to change the flash setting nothing happens. It is currently stuck on manual w/ no flash so any pictures I take at night turn out blurry because the shutter speed is so slow. Any ideas on how to fix?

Camera is fine except won't take pics!

1/30 is the camera speed setting which is very slow for a daylight shot.. and would possibly produce a blurry overexposed pic if it did take one
F3.5 is the aperture setting which is small.
an ideal aperture in daylight setting is F8 and a speed of 100 being relatively standard. Try changing both the speed and aperture settings on the wheel =to obtain the nearest or exactly this and then try. Otherwise it needs a service or a recharge Also try changing the battery in case there is something wriong with the one in the camera

Flash off sign.

I had a similar problem, where the only option on the menu for the flash was off. I initialised the camera (reset everything), and the flash options have reappeared, and it now appears to work fine (initialise is in the settings menu from home).

White Screen

  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

Outdoor pictures reveal white on LCD screen

The sensor for the auto-ISO may be working incorrectly. Try changing the ISO manually for different light modes. You can also try to change the white balance of the LCD. -Setting the white balance: 1. Set the camera to still image mode 2. Press the "Set" button 3. "White Balance" should be the current selection 4. Press the "Flower" button or "Flash" button to move through the available options for white balance 5. Press "Set" again when change appropriately - Setting the ISO: The higher the ISO value, the less light the camera needs to make an exposure, allowing the same exposure to be achieved with higher shutter speeds or smaller apertures. In a digital camera, higher ISO value allows higher shutter speed, at the expense of mottled or grain appearing in the final picture. 1. Set the camera to Still Image mode. 2. Press the "Set" button. 3. Press the "scn" or "timer" button to select ?ISO?. 4. Press the "Flower" or "Flash" button to select the desired setting. 5. Press the "set" button to select. 50/100/200 In the same lighting condition, the higher the ISO value is, the faster the shutter speed will be. I hope this helps.
