Hey folks, i had the same issue, i was sooo annoyed. I looked in the dinky manual and found nothing. Turn your camera on with the lens cover closed. Hit Home, select the briefcase bottom right hand corner. select MAIN settings and hit OK. Select initialize, this will restore the camera to factory default values. Bringing back the flash. Don't ask me why it disappears after awhile. I thought i was going mental and m friends all thought i was an idiot. hope this helps.

How do I turn flash on and off?


The multi selector is the round control on the rear of the camera with the OK button in its center.
The flash mode button is the top button on the selector, it has a lightning flash icon.

Press the flash mode button on the multi selector.
Highlight the desired mode and press the center of the multi selector.

The flash modes are:
AUTO; Flash fires automatically when lighting is poor.
AUTO WITH RED-EYE REDUCTION; Reduces "red eye" in portraits.
OFF; Flash will not fire even when lighting is poor.
FILL FLASH; Flash fires whenever picture is taken. Use to "fill-in" (illuminate) shadows and back-lit subjects.
SLOW SYNC; Flash illuminates mainsubject; slow shutter speeds are used to capture background at night or under dim light

The selected flash mode icon appears at the top of the monitor.

How do I turn off the flash for the canon powershot a630?


First of all, the flash can not be turned off in "Auto" mode. You can turn it off in any mode other than Auto. Would recommend Program "P" mode, which is very similar to Auto, but allows you to modify certain minor items such as flash and white balance.

Rotate your mode dial to "P", then press the button on the back with the "lightning bolt" icon. Press until the lightning bolt with a slash shows up on your LCD screen. The flash is now turned off in Program mode. Try taking a picture.

Remember, if in low light conditions you'll need to keep the camera extra steady without flash to get a clear picture. Recommend placing the camera on a table or chair (or even better, use a tripod), then using its autotimer to snap the picture.

Flash


Your camera is set at twilnight mode which has the flash suppressed and you won't be able to turn it on because of the fixed setting of twilnight mode to get the proper result of the picture. Due to the mode setting requirement, a shakey hand icon and no flash icon will show. If you press the flash mode button, it beeps. The twilnight setting has a low shutter speed, i.e. the shutter opens longer to allow more lights in, therefore it shows recording to let you know that the shutter is still open, and any moment of the camera will result in a blurred picture.
Now, check your camera mode dial and turn it back to the 'green' camera and see if you can get the flash to fire.

How do I turn my flash off on my samsung digimax 4010


You don't say which model Digimax you have. Hopefully this will cover most models.
First, make sure the menu is not being displayed on the LCD monitor, otherwise you'll just move around in the menu screen. You must also be in photo record mode, ready to take a picture (not in playback or movie mode).
There is a button (usually on the left side of the direction pad) that looks like a lightning bolt. I can't remember the exact number of times you must press it, but the display should indicate that the flash is turned off as one of the options as you cycle through them.
Depending on your model, the modes are likely to be Auto Flash (bolt with an "A" icon), Auto with Red-eye reduction ("eye" icon), fill flash - always on ("bolt" icon), Slow sync (bolt with an "S" icon), and flash off (bold with a line through it icon).
Also depending on your model, you may not be able to turn the flash off depending on which recording mode you're in. For instance, you can't turn the flash off if you're in the "Backlight" recording mode.

Flash pops up but does not flash


Turning the Flash Off and On: 1. With the camera in any user set, repeatedly press the Flash/ISO button on the lens barrel until the flash cancel icon (a lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it) is displayed on the control panel and screen. 2. When finished, to return to the default setting, press the Flash/ISO button until AUTO and the lightning bolt icon are displayed on the control panel and no flash icon is displayed on the screen. If it still doesnt help: 1. Check that batteries are fresh. 2. Check that camera hasn't been set for no-flash mode. 3. Give the flash time to charge before pressing shutter.

Portraits underexposed


Whenever you are taking pictures of people within six feet of them, it is a good idea to turn on the flash - whether you are indoors or out. The Flash mode is easily accessed via the arrow pad on the back of the camera. Press the right arrow key, which has a lightning bolt icon, to enter the Flash Mode. Press the down key to select the lightning bolt icon and press “OK”. The flash will fire every time in this mode. Your outdoor pictures of people should improve in appearance since the flash will fill-in shadows normally apparent in outdoor shots.
