There is no flash-ready light on DSLRs. Recharge the battery fully and try again.

Flash not working


Are you sure your flash not working does affect the AF?
Check the menu for the auto focus setting, if it is still in ON.
And you did not switch off the flash yourself?
Is the lightening loge visible on the display and then the flash still does not fire?
The flash can be switched off to, for instance when you are in a museum. Check all settings. The manual must be online still with Canon USA.

Flash not working


Can be for severe; reasons.
1. There is enough light.
2. You can force the flash, with the mode switch to Flash forced on, Slow synchro and Flash forced off. Try flash forced on.
3. The battery is not fully charged. When there is not enough power in the battery, the flash can't be charged enough to fire. But if the camera tries to charge the flash, a symbol with a lightening arrow and a dot is displayed. So if you see these symbols, could be you need better batteries. Try charging the battery.
4. the flash is really defect. Could happen too, but first check if everything from 1 to 3 is as it should be. only than you have to visit the repair shop or Sony if it is still in warranty.

I have a Olympus FE-100 everything works except the flash. I have tried everything. The lightening bolt and red light flashes all the time. Change modes nothing happens. mHelp.


hi
your camera has flash circuit defective. the red light flashed mean it is trying to charge flash capacitor in its circuitry. it might has flash pcb defective or just fuse brown. you can bring to local repair shop and they would charge around $35 to 75 depend on what they really want to charge.
Thanks and best regard!

How do i turn the flash on


The flash in a camera is represented by a symbol like that of a 'lightening bolt' If you have a cross sign over that symbol, it means that the flash is turned off. Change the setting of the camera to make it only the 'lightening bolt'. Then it would flash when you take a picture.

Turn off flash


Hi,

With the camera ready to shoot in Auto mode - you will see a little lightening symbol in the top right hand corner of the screen. This indicates the flash is turned on.

On the left side of the circular dial at the back of the camera you will see a similar little lightening symbol indented into the dial. Simply press on this side of the dial to turn the flash on or off as you desire.

The symbol on the screen will go off when you push this to indicate flash is off and return if you press again to turn it on.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to turn flash on


When you turn the camera on and you are on the main screen, use the last touch screen button at the bottom marked with a lighting bold. If you hit it it once, the flash is automatic, if you hit it twice it is always on.

The flash on my camera will not go off, it shows the light in the back ready, but nothing happens to help light up the picture


If your using the hot shoe with an external flash, three things could've happened: battery power in your camera is too low to fire the flash; or check the menu/settings/flash - ext flash settings may not have been chosen by the camera, but you may need to set it first manually; or your hot shoe is not a hot one, but your flash needs to be plugged into a PC outlet on the side of your camera. One last thing - test fire your flash and make sure it works to rule out the camera. There have been occasions where the ready light works on the flash, but it won't fire even after being plugged in. This problem was found to be a loose soldered wire in the flash foot. Another time it wound up to be the flashtube. Hope this helps.

Replace flash


Usualy the flash is soldered into the unit. Are you sure its on? some pop up and some have to beflipped up automaticly. Does your display show a lighting bolt? the normal icon for flash being on is a lightning bolt. If it has a line threw it it is disabled in the settings somewhere. Ive never seen one that has failed so it makes me think there is a wrong setting somewhere. Try and hold it up maybe there is dust or dirt o the switch keeping it from detecting it is up and ready for use?
