I have the same problem, and it has nothing to do with Macro-mode. Olympus says that the camera need to be sent in for repair. I searched this problem at google and it seems like this is a "commmon" problem with this camera.

Suggest you go through all the other menus to check whether you have the camera working in some mode which isn't compatible with flash. For instance, my Olympus (different model) won't allow you to select flash if you're working in super macro mode. A.

SB-800 makes strange noise and over exposes image when it does work


The flash has settings you will have to read your manual
the camera does the exposers not the flash
set your cameras appuatue to a high number and speed fast then shoot if you knew how to use your camera you would know the flash is uesd for filling in shadows and imitating the sun which is bright. Good luck

When recorded on video mode there was no noise on playback


If "noise" is sound, then the problem may be the volume is set strangely or there is no on board speaker. this is common on a lot of cameras. If you've heard sound before and the volume is fine, you either blew out your speaker or it just "broke". Call Panasonic and let them know you have a defective product.

How to use digilife DDV 7000 cmcorder as a webcam? can't use the flash of digilife DDV 7000 cmcorder


You have to install a driver to use this camera as a webcam. There is a Windows one posted at:

this site

It is actually for a different model, but works. Once you have installed it, your camera will show up as a source when you use a program that captures webcam pics or video. You will need to connect the camera to your computer with a suitable USB lead.

To turn the flash on and off in still picture mode, you press the right pointing arrow on the round selector switch array. There are two settings, off and auto, so you cannot force it to flash- it will only do it when the camera decides the light is low. The flash does not work when filming video.

Flash player don't work?! please help.


Sorry, but your question is confusing: Flash Player is an Adobe product which allows online video streaming. Your DSC-V1 is just a camera and neither has nor needs Flash Player.

Perhaps you're confusing it with the camera flash used to provide light when taking photos? If the flash is set to "on" it should usually pop up and fire except when the camera is set to certain scene modes (see below). The other flash settings are "off" (no lightning flash icon) and "slow" (the letters SL appear next to the lightning icon). The only other icon which can appear next to it to the left are the scene modes. These only appear when the mode selector dial is set to "SCN" and there are six of them: beach mode (palm tree and beach icon); snow mode (snowman icon); portrait mode (a pair of heads and shoulders icon); landscape mode (mountains in a picture frame icon); twilight portrait mode (crescent moon and a head and torso icon); and twilight mode (crescent moon icon). Of these, only the last one prevents the flash from firing even if switched on.

You can learn more about these by clicking this link to the Sony website which has a downloadable .pdf manual. The scene modes and what they do is explained on pages 63 & 64.

I hope that you've found my answer to be of use and in return ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer. If your problem remains unresolved then please explain clearly what you'd like to know in a comment and I'll try again: I've been using a DSC-V1 regularly since 2004 so there's not much about it which I'm unfamiliar with.

K100D flash doesn´t work


My camera with the dodgy flash is holidaying in Japan as they sent it to be fixed - not sure how old your camera is but I am trying to see if this is an issue that occurs with the camera model.... given that there are only two of us to date I am thinking that we may have just struck the jackpot :(

My Flash suddenly will not pop up.


Hi Randy, It seems like the problem could be the settings. Try to set the flash manually, and then try to pop it up. If this doesn't work, and since the pop up flash release is electronic, have the camera cleaned at a camera shop. This would be a small price to pay if it works, and would be worth it for such a great camera. Please let me know if this works for you. Best regards, nightdiver

Several shooting modes


The Shooting modes are as follows: Program Auto (Factory default setting) Used for regular photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. Other functions, such as the flash mode and metering can be adjusted manually. Portrait Suitable for taking a portrait-style shot of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both the subject and the background. Self Portrait Enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the Wide position and cannot be changed. Portrait + Landscape Portrait + Landscape mode is suitable for taking photos which include both your subject and the landscape. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions.
