Flash on camera is not working

Hello. If you're shooting in Auto mode and you have turned off the flash, your camera will remember that setting and the flash will not fire. If you switch the dial on top of your camera to another mode and then back to auto it should clear the setting and the flash should now fire, if needed. The other thing to try is to hold down the the flash popup/mode button while, at the same time, turning the rear control dial. You can watch your top display and the flash modes should cycle through different options.

Turned camera on gives error message to turn off and back on again . No matter how many times we turn off and on it won't clear the message. Took battery out.put back in. Message still there. Also len

Camera was probably dropped. Motorized autofocus lens was probably damaged when dropped. It doesn't get more of a big deal than this. Depending on age of camera, it may be a ''wipe-out.''

Ps... I'm saying ''probably'' dropped because I didn't see it happen, but this is precisely what happens when they are dropped. It doesn't take much of a ''jolt'' to do the damage, and there is usually never any external damage.

Wont turn on

you didn't give enough information about the problem or when did it start.
try the follow:check that the battery lid is closed properly - in many of those cameras it doesnt always close as it should.
try to connect it to a computer and see if something happens. it is possible that the camera does work but the screen is for some reason turned off.

Fuji finepix f810 flash wont pop up when button pressed

hi your camera is kind of getting old but it is still great. some people really like it. personally I like also. however, fuji finepix f810 has little problem like yours due to delicate design. on your flash problem could has two sequence check. first is flash circuit defective or flash tube defective. second is main pcb doesn't work properly with flash function. your local repair shop would charge around $75 to 185. Fuji camera usually charge more than other brand. I am sorry that you know. Good luck with you and best regard.

Delayed Shutter, No Flash, and Menu Issues

Pls check your camera settings. Your shutter may be set to 10" (meaning 10 seconds). That is probably also why your pop up flash does not go up... because it feels that it will already get over-exposed pics.

To check if it is not a hardware problem, change your settings to Auto and try to shoot in a dark room.

Canon S1 flash stuck

Mine does the exact same thing but I just pop it open manually when I need it. The great thing is that unless you have a very dark night shot you can pretty much shoot with out it, but don't be afraid to pop it out manually. It will close again!
