It requires service person to check your camera . Software updating sometimes may solve your problem . If software updating doesnot work then it is hardware fault . You need to contact service person to get it repaired .

Hi
Make sure you have not set a dial control to say manual focus or Macro focus.
Run through the menu's on the screen to see if you have inadvertantly changed sometihg.
As you are computing - give Pentax Technical Support Team a a go on their website

    This is most likely a problem with the dial itself. Generally speaking the software within the camera does not fail unless something breaks within the camera. To make absolutely sure - contact the manufacturer and find out if there is an active recall for this product. If it is a manufacturing or software fault they will recall it. Otherwise it will have to be professionally repaired.

First thing that you can try is to reset the camera to its default settings and then after that check if everything is already working

Start by removing the battery from your camera and try again, also try restoring the camera to default.
you didn't include the brand or model.

well you can get a free repair estimate from  www.advancecamera.com/repair 
It does sound like a hardware problem.

When I try to turn my flash on it says macro mode, What is this and how do I fix it?


Macro mode is for taking pictures of subjects very close to the camera. In this mode the flash is disabled.

Without knowing the model of your Digital Concepts camera I can't tell you how to take it out of macro mode. If there's a button on the back marked with a flower icon, press it. Otherwise look in the menu.

When i try to turn my flash on it says Macro Mode


You're in macro mode and the flash won't function. Check your manual to find out how to get out of macro mode. Most cameras have a button or a dial with a picture of a flower representing macro mode. Find that and change it.

I cannot get super macro mode


Turn the dial- the one that lets you select a mode. You have to be in certain modes to allow for super macro.... (I have a powershot S2) Try AV or manual, or a couple of others. There are a few that will not allow super macro. That's your problem. Good luck!

Try going into the M(anual) mode on the selector dial and then turn off the flash (press the right side of the controller button until you see the lightning bolt with a bar through it). The macro shooting option should still be available in the manual mode.

Best way to take macro in DSLR is try A/V mode and switch aperture F value to small value.if you don't have enough light macro need your flash sync.

Focus


Your camera has the ability to shoot Macro and Super Macro, although in some Dial Modes, you can't use Macro.

To engage the Macro mode, press once the button on the left side of the lens/camera that looks like a Flower. To engage the Super Macro mode, press and hold the same button for more than one second.

Macro mode range 3.9 in. - 1.6 ft
Super Macro mode range is 0 in. - 3.9 in.
To cancel Macro mode, press the Flower icon button once.
Zoom levels are limited, and you will know that when the zoom bar turns yellow. This means the zoom is not available at that zoom level.

Macro mode


The Macro Mode is easily accessed by pressing the second oval shaped button to the left of the arrow pad on the back of the camera. This button is designated by a green colored box with a curved doubled headed arrow – which will rotate the image file when in view mode. The same button also has a flower icon, which represents MACRO MODE when in Shooting mode. Pressing thios button in Shooting Mode displays a menu where you select three options: OFF, Close-Up or Super Close-Up photography.
