In general, you will have to play with the functions as each camera and indoor lighting situation is different. Sometimes, cameras have some nice presets (like candlelight) and I have had some success with presets.
Otherwise, depending on the indoor circumstances you will need to play with ISO - 800 or 1600 is typical for low light settings. However, I have heard that graininess appears with your camera at around 1600. It is a problem with your model of camera.
You can also try playing with the white balance settings as well.
Usually outdoor picture are good within small compact camera. They designed like that. But now your unit just have flash pcb defective. When flash function work, your picture will be good indoor.
Regarding your flash unit would be brown fuse or replacement of flash unit. It is 50 and 50 chance. Your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 95 depend on what they really want to charge.
Thanks and best regard!
The flash has a range of up to around 10 feet at the wide end of the zoom, down to 6.5 feet at the tele end. Maybe you are using it on to big a distance or at to low ISO? Try setting the ISO to 800 and see if it helps. images get a bit more grainy at 800 ISO but are also less prone to camera shake, if you use it without the flash. The camera goes as high as 1600 ISO, but images get very grainy at that setting.
Auto mode in poor lighting (generally always indoors without flash) sets high ISO, which produces ugly amount of noise (graininess). What you need is to keep the ISO under 200 by either:
Shooting well lit scenes, using flash etc.
Uusing one of the manual programs (M, S, A, P) and setting the sensitivity via the F-menu.
If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.
However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.
The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.
Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.
