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?

Well i have a Sanyo J1 Xacti Digital camera and i lost the CD with the software to download the pictures from camera to Computer. Is there any site where i can get download it? Thanks


Try Sanyo.com - look for support button.

Most newer computers with newer operating systems will detect a camera/camcorder when connected to USB. Have you tried it without the disk?

I have an older Xacti that records to SD card. You can use a flash card reader to transfer files without Sanyo software.

How to put flip video to web page from Flip Mino&Mino HD, Flip Ultra&Ultra HD...


Flip camcorders include the Flip Ultra, the Flip UltraHD, the Flip Video Mino, and the Flip Video MinoHD. They are nice affordable and easy to use. In this article, I want to talk about how to add Flip video to your website.


Two options to put Flip video on your website

Option1. The Easiest Way to Embed Flip Video in Website
Step1. Upload Flip video to YouTube with Flipshare
Flipshare is an amazing editing software designed by the Flip for Flip camcorders. It offers Flip users to Upload videos instantly to YouTube .

Step2. Embed the uploaded video in your website
After you upload Flip video to YouTube, just copy the code from the "Embed" box from YouTube and then paste it into your website.

Please mind: This method is easy-to-do and free, however, the embedded video will contain Ads and Text Youtube adds.

Option2. The Best Way to Put Flip Video to Website
Required Tool: Flip Video to Flash converter mac
The mac flip video to flash converter can convert your flip video to Flash in FLV and SWF formats which is the first choice to insert video in website. It supports all flip camcorders, such as the Flip Ultra, the Flip UltraHD, the Flip Video Mino, and the Flip Video MinoHD. You even don't have to take actionscript, because the flip video to flash converter mac has the ability to automatically embed your flip video in an HTML webpage.

Flip video MP4 to Flash converter mac empowers you to crop, clip and merge your MP4 files Flip video camcorder shoots as easy as a piece of cake. With Mac Flip video AVI to Flash converter, you are able to add special effect, flash player and preloader template to your AVI video clips so that your embedded videos look professional and more vivid.

How it works:
Step1. Download and install Flip video to Flash converter for mac
Step2. Launch the converter and import your flip video into it.
Step3. Do advanced operation such as cropping and clipping video.

Step4. Choose a flash player for flash video.

Step5. Click "Start" button to start the conversion
Step6. Upload the converted video into your host and copy the code from the output file(HTML file) to your website.

Note: Flip to Video Web Page Creator can only put flip videos on website. If you want to play flip videos on iPod, iPhone, etc, you need Flip Converter this tools.

Next: Create free flash slideshow for website with photos.

Red eye on sanyo digital camera xacti,always theres a red eye when taking pictures,i already adjusted everything,still occuring red eye.


Do you mean your subject's eyes are showing "redeye"? This is a common problem with cameras that have the flash very close to the lens. Almost every photo editing program has a tool to remove red-eye. Check your computer to see what you have installed. In the future, most cameras have a red-eye flash setting which shoots a short flash before the main flash to close down the pupils in your subjects eyes to eliminate red-eye. You could also turn up the lights in the room...sometimes that helps.

All my pictures are either blurred or dark.the flash used to work but it doesnt work any more.i dont know if you can help?


Almost certainly the pictures are dark and blurred because the flash doesn't work. These cameras are not worth repairing, generally, so either just use it in daylight or get another one - and don't buy Sanyo. Canon, HP, Panasonic, Samsung are better.

I can't figure out how to use my SB800 off camera with the D80 in command mode.


You can purchase a simple hot shoe mount slave or a pc corded slave. Do you know what a slave is? Most cameras have a flip flash on the camera. You can use this to fire your off camera flash. Most flip flashes are so low in power as compared to your SB800 that the flip flash will cause very little exposure effect to the image. Now there are things to consider, such as if you are outside in bright light a slave has more trouble detecting a flash. If you are indoors you need to at least have the off camera falsh localised to the flip flash and the slave in direct view of the flash. Some slaves are more sensitive than others. the great thing is with digital you can experiment all you want. Back in the day using film was costly, a lot of bracketing and guessing and time consuming. Why do you want the flash off the camera? What is your subject? I have usually found a bounce card on the flash or off a ceiling or wall effective for people. If you are lighting an indoor scene it is understandable to use off camera lighting.

Flash not working


i think your problem is that you are not flipping open the flash... the flash doesnt automatically flip open... and the blinking red icon in the lower left just means that since there isnt enough light, the camera will spend a bit longer to allow more light to enter the lens, hence you need to keep the camera steady and not shake it... hope this helped

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.
