All photos suddenly too dark, even using flash.

If you are sure you are in automatic mode, the green camera logo on the top dial, your pictures have to be correct.
The exposure compensation should not be available in automatic, so that can't be the reason. (if you are in automatic)
The only thing you could look for, is the exposure metering. There you can chose 3 modes, and I do advise to chose Multi-pattern (should be default) because then not only the centre is measured.
If the pictures stay too dark, while in automatic and Multi-pattern, i think your camera is defect. It has nothing to do with the battery. If the battery voltage drops beneath a certain point the camera will stop completely and not work half.

Why is the flash not working on my vivitar 8025

The Vivitar 8025 has the following flash settings: Auto mode , Fill-in mode , Flash OFF mode. Since the cam doesn't have a manual flash setting, check to see if it's set to OFF mode. Or even Fill-in mode (sometimes it barely flashes). Auto mode will only work if needed......

Switches off when in record mode

Hi Patrick,

That happens to mine when the batteries are getting low. More so when the flash is on auto.

Try disengaging the flash and see what happens. If it works, replace the batteries.

Best regards,

S51 nikon - no flash

Did you try to access the flash mode of the camera and turn on the fill flash then try to take a picture? If the flash doesn't go then and your batteries are strong, then it will likely need service.

Make sure you put it on FILL FLASH and not on auto. Depending on the ISO the flash may not always fire in the auto mode.

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...

Flash stopped working

I had the same problem, "BBWS" found this "solution":
Turn the camera on as if to take photos (not to review photos).

Press "Home" (upper left corner)
Press the camera tab (bottom left-most tab)
Press "Scene Selection (SCN)"
Press "OK" at the "Select type of scene" prompt

However, I still don't have flash available in the PGM or AUTO modes, which tells me it is still broken.

Low battery warning

What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

Flash not working

I had the same problem with my flash not working on any setting, but I found a way to fix it: hit the menu button, make sure the "rec mode" choice is set to normal instead of burst. I think the burst mode takes multiple shots in a row, so the flash isn't compatible with that setting?

Coolpix L10 won't flash in flash or auto flash mode

If you have the BSS (Best Shot Selector - page 79 of manual)...turn on then the flash or auto flash is over ridden and will not work. This happen as the BSS feature allows you to hold down the shutter release button (one used to take pictures) and continually take pictres, compare them and only keep the best one. The need to take rapids shots can not wait for a flash to recharge and go off so the flash is disabled... among other things but is all explained in the manual. I hope this is all your problem is and not something worse.
