Sanyo Xacti HD2 Flip Flash Not flashing

Is there anything other than flipping open the flash unit and shooting a camera picture to using the flash? My flash does not fire even in very dim light. I cannot locate a software menu switch.

Hmm...I can't find a software control either. When the flash is down there is a cross through the lightening mark in the upper left portion of the screen, and when I press the flash button and raise the flash the same lightening mark in the upper left has no cross through it. Do you have the same mark? Does the flash button have no effect upon the mark?

Apparently you can take the LCD apart, look at the part number and order it online somewhere.

When I turn the unit on, there isn't an image on the monitor. You can press the camera button and the flash goes off. There just isn't an image in the monitor. Please help!


If it takes a picture successfully, then your display is bad - more likely the back light inverter. Check your memory card and use a computer that can read it.

Sanyo Xacti CA6EX shows just steaky, blurry image


Sounds tasty! ;)

Just kidding. What kind of stReaky images is it recording? Is the problem that you are using it in bad light (eg indoors at night)? It could just be camera shake.

Make sure that your camera is in auto mode and try again - if it was in a slow shutter speed mode, then this could be more of a problem. Also try using flash, if you camera has one.

Sanyo Xacti VPC-HD1- doesn't do anything in record mode


As I have been writing on other HD1/2 problems, sometimes it can be the card which is an issue. If the card is too slow or perhaps corrupted then the device can find it difficult to record.

This and other soft faults (that are reperable by turning the power on and off, changing or reinserting the card, removing the battery) are often indicated by a flashing red recording light.

Red flash and appears to be frozen


Yes, I get red flashing too occasionally.
turn the power off and on using the button under the screen.

reformat the card either via a computer of if possible via the camera menu item.

Remove and re-insert the card.

purchase a new and faster SD card.

Sanyo XACTI HD1 Camera-No Pictures / Videos captured.


I have intermittent problems of this type too. Occasionally I get a blank screen in the display mode.

Does the red light on the back of your camera flash while the screen is dark? Mine does.

It is beginning to bug me a lot. It may be because I got my camera wet in the past (and hence I have broken my camera), but I doubt that would result in a partial failure.

I think that the Xacti HD1/HD2 has issues a bit like a blue screen of death on an old Windows computer when faced with storage problems.

I.e. it works but crashes sometimes when it cannot store to its storage medium.

These things work for me
1) Turning the power on and off via the button underneath the screen.
2) Removing and re-inserting the SD card.
3) Turning the power on and off by removing the battery.
4) Using a different (and faster?) SD card.
I am still using my HD2, but I am finding that I must attempt solutions 1-3 about once a day.

It could be because the card I have been using recently is not fast enough. The HD2 accepts both SD and SDHC cards. My SDHC card (which is newer) seems to result in fewer problems, either because the SDHC format is more suited to the Xacti HD2 or becaues the SDHC card I have is faster that then SD card I have. I suspect problems with the speed of the card. I am using cheap SD cards.
