Question about Olympus Camedia C-50 Zoom Digital Camera

Help! My flash isn't working!

I have been having this problem with my flash recently where it will not work. I can take pictures without the flash, but the resolution is blurry. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? A little flash icon will blink in the upper left side of the screen, and the top indicator blinks orange next to the view finder.

1 The flash- with the camera shut down take the batteries out. leave an hour. put them back in. Now - switch on and go to flash mode. Hold the camera to your ear.Can you hear a slight hgih pitched whine? This is the capacitor charging up. If you did not hear it then the flash unit is dead. But to be sure- read the manual and make sure you have set it up and operating it correctly. Blurry picture are something else[possibly] Check that you have not inadvertantly got the camera set to MACRO mode[this may also affect the flash inability. A good reread of the manual will do little harm and check out all those controls again.

This can be a hardware issue, failure of the circuit, the flash unit or the LED. In this case it is best to take opinion and support from Nokia care unless you are fully equipped to open and check and evenso the spare could be another issue.get estimate and proceed

Black pictures when using flash


The black images with flash mean that the Iris mechanism in the lens is not working properly, and that needs a professional camera repair service.

Canon550 flash problem


having the same problem, although after about a year of having it. i've come to the conclusion that the flash itself is broken, if you shake the camera you'll hear something moving around (at least that's my case) and i'm supposing it's similar to a burnt light bulb kinda thing. so the solution would probably be to send the camera to canon itself or find someone who can replace the flash (and buy one as well). I can't do either because I live out of the US =(
