The flash would fire as per the requirement, in auto mode.

If the ambient light is enough then the flash will not fire.

In case you need to use the flash in bright conditions (e.g. For using as a fill flash) please repeatedly press the flash button (The one with the lightning symbol on it) till you get a lightning bolt symbol on the camera display.

Now your flash will fire on every shot that you click!

Please ensure that you revert back to the Auto mode once done.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

My Nissan pick up 1995 doesn't start, make a weird sound when I switch


Check your fusible links at the positive side of battery,wires could be burnt or swollen,meaning wire is dead like truck,I have a 85 Nissan,I have 5 wires leaving my positive,going to alternator,starter switch and others.They are like a fuse,will burn up if too much power going through.Replace with same gauge wire.Here's a link to where they are.

I have a samsung S500 and when I turn it on the lens doesn't open or extend and it will beep 3 times and shut off. I have tried new batteries and nothing works. I took it to a camera shop and they


Well, have you ever considered that the lenses MIGHT be defected? If it's true, you can send it back to the manufacturer, as long as it wasn't YOU who made it defected.
Another tip, is maybe the lens isn't made for that type of camera.
Lastly, the lens can just be broken, so you should carefully examine it, and see INSIDE of it, to make sure all of the parts are their. Hope this helps (:

My new-to-me 2002 VW passat was running great for 1000ish miles then the engine was slow to turn over once. The next day I tried to start it and... nothing. The lights come on on the dash but nothing else....


I would get a multimeter and while it is running check to see what the charge is at the battery, it should be above 13amps 14 is good. If not then your alternator is bad and isn't charging the battery while it is running.

I suspect there is a problem with the turn signal/ hazard switch. turn the turn signal on left or right, if it doesn't flash, grip the hazard button and gently wiggle it around, if the signals start flashing, replace the turn signal switch. The Brake lights are wired through the turn signal switch, if the 3rd brake light works, the brake switch is OK. I don't think it has anything to do with the anti theft system (at this time)

Cannon Speedlite 270EX doesn't turn on and I put new batteries in


Try cleaning out the contacts where the batteries touch. Make sure the battery door is completely flush with the body and see if you've inserted everything correctly. The type of battery you use also effects the flash recycle time and how it operates too. Have you tried using different types of batteries? Try using NI-MH instead of Alkaline and see if the speedlite will power. There's a test button on the flash and also an off-on switch you can try toggling around. The flash itself is very simple so if it still won't power on after all of that, you should contact customer support.

How do I upload pictures from my Holga 120 CFN onto my computer ? is there some sort of cable that can do it or what?


This is a film camera, you cannot download from it. You need either a film/slide scanner or a regular scanner to scan in the pictures themselves. Sorry.

Broken flash


okay my holga flash was broken too....the batteries were working just fine cus when i turned it on, the little back light came on and the whining sound happened, but then click...no flash! so i took the back off and made a small repair and it worked!

so this is how to fix it (if its the same problem...i.e. everything electrical is working but the actual flash):

use a small screwdriver to remove the two small screws inside the camera (take out the frame and they are on the bottom and top). the front will pop off and you should be able to see the wiring.

ebbee78.jpg

where i circled in red was the problem. that curved metal piece at the bottom was too straight and was not making contact with the shutter (the top little metal prod sticking outta the circle) when i clicked it. so just bend it forward to how it looks in the picture...then do a practice click to make sure it makes contact. you can even try it with the batteries in, but be careful!! its electricity!

hope this helps!!
