    It is a Sony dscs700 camera. I have not seen an error message. When you attempt to take a picture with the auto or on setting, the flash signal dot turns yellow/orange and flashes but the camera does not take the picture. The camera only takes pictures when on settings that do not require or suggest a flash.

SOURCE: Casio Exilim S5 camera flash

there are more possibilities...first is that the settings can not be changed cause the flash is dead and the lack of contact make this not be recognized on...
Second it may be a firmware malfunction and in this case you have to download the firmware update and install it in the camera..procedure is explain at download on the support site ..
The last possibility is that the camera is set on a shooting mode that do not allow /require the the flash ...for example bright light ..mode..Check it and put it in normal mode and after that enable the flash ..or ...try to see in the main menu the reset to factory settings and engage it ...This should make all function work if there are no physical damages..

SOURCE: Samsung S730 camera wont take photos with flash

I have the same problem with the same exact camera. Before the flash stopped working, I was taking pictures and the flash was making noise. Every time it flashed, it'd make a loud snapping sound. It only flashed 3 times before the flash finally kicked the bucket... Now I can't take pictures when the flash is turned on.

I read somewhere to try new batteries because the flash might not be getting enough juice, but I highly doubt that's going to work.

SOURCE: Cannot take a photo in flash mode. when camera is

Did you try another battery?

A weak battery can cause a shutdown.

If it is not the battery, make sure the memory card is not defective.

Beyond this, there is most likely a defect on one of the camera circuit boards. At this level the camera would require service.

The flash is not working on my Fuji FinePix F402 Digital Camera


If the flash is faulty, it will most likely be to expensive to repair. You can still use the camera, though. Indoor photos will be to dark unless you turn off the flash. Cycle through the flash modes untill you get the Suppressed Flash symbol. Flash mode button is next to the zoom button. Watch out for camera shake when shooting indoor without flash.

Nikon S210 flash not working


The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

My flash has stopped working


Hi

Unfortunately you will either need to replace the flash unit... or if you're unlucky the main PCB. I don't think you will be able to do anything without either of those parts.

I have made my living running a digital camera repair business for several years now, wish I had better news for you about your camera. If we can help with the repair let us know.

Good luck: Darntoothysam com

Can't take photographs when flash is on


Hi
The powershot s5 IS does in fact have some strange behaviour issues especially on the first rev firmware. For example if you take 15-20 flash photos consecutively without powering down your camera the flash recycle times will increase to about 15sec, so you'll have to wait about 15sec before you can take another flash photo. The work around is to power down the camera and then turn it back ON. Another strange behaviour is manifested by its inability to lock focus after taking a "no-flash" photo, then popping up the flash and trying to take a flash photo. Again the work-around is to power down the camera, pop-up the flash and then power it back up. Confirmed these behaviours in two other cameras of the same model.

Flash not working


Sounds like a burn out, or a bad lamp.  The flash is subjected to a huge jolt of electricity each time it fires, and breaks easily, especially when hot.   If you are taking many flash photos, you should stop after 15 or so, to let the flash unit cool.
Good luck with Casio, if you are still under warranty.  It will probably mean mailing them the camera for fixing, or replacing.  Sometimes you can take it back to where you bought it for repair.

Red Flash mark while taking photo


It sounds to me like you are not waiting for the camera to charge the flash when turning the camera on or between shots. It seems you are using 1700mAh batteries and most modern digital cameras are better off using 2500mAh batteries. Your camera was released in September 2006 so it is considered "modern". With 1700mAh batteries, your flash (warm-up) recycle time time will be rather long or the amperage may not be enough to fully charge the flash unit. I highly recommend Duracell 2500mAh rechargeable batteries.

DMC-FX01 Flash Does Not Work


In what mode are you trying to take photos? The flash will not work in certain modes (see the manual), for example the night mode. Or you accidentialy turned on sequential/burst mode (this is mode where camera takes more pictures on one shutter button press). Flash cannot be used in this mode also. I don't have FX01, but on FZ8 the camera will show flash icon in red, but will take the picture anyway without flash being triggered. The second problems seems like enabled power-saving mode, but those 5 seconds are too short for this. But anyway you can check in SETUP menu the settings for power-save. Also maybe the flash is broken and camera noticed it... I don't think this could be a software problem. Either problem with the flash, but more probably just setting of wrong mode.
