Flash replace


I assume that you were using an external removable flash because the original flash is built in and cannot "slide" off.
Any recent canon flash should work. Alternatively, you could buy a flash from Yongnuo, Sunpak, Metz or any other flash manufacturer as long as you say that it must be compatible with your camera.
hope this helps.

Built in flash not working.is this repairable? would an add on flash be a suitable alternative?


This would be a very expensive option, i.e. repair. I would definitely suggest an add on flash as the best option.

The built-in flash on my Canon EOS 450D camera won't pop-up


Had the same issue and just tried this....and it worls [PS dont use the littel plastic hotshoe cover as this keeps the microswitch depressed]

The flash on my Fujifilm s3000 quit working.


Hi,I know some of the common things for the digital camera. I want you to try these.

-------->If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments. 
-------->Set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness.

IMPORTANT: If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:

* When shooting MPEG movies
* When set to the Twilight mode
* If an external flash is connected


The information above should resolve your issue. However, if the issue still persists, you can try resetting the camera to factory specifications.
Some cameras have a RESET button built into them or a menu option to reset the camera to the default settings.
Refer to the instruction manual supplied with your camera for specific information regarding the availability of a RESET button or menu option to reset the default settings. Otherwise, continue with the manual reset procedure below.

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Ensure the camera is not connected to an AC power adapter.
3. Remove the battery from the camera for 15 seconds.
4. Reinsert the battery.
5. Turn on the camera.

If all the above fails you, then i doubt that Impact damage would have caused the flash not to work. 
But i know you are not going to like this solution. No other way , you have to contact Nikon service centre for repair.

i hope this helps to fix your problem.
Thanx for using fixya.

I have an Olympus MJU 700 but the flash is not working


Hi,
I want you to check these,

Check that batteries are fresh.

Check that camera hasn't been set for no-flash mode.

Give the flash time to charge before pressing shutter.

Try to reset your phone by MASTER RESET(Factory reset) by referring to your manual.

If you updated the firmware for your camera, then that update can also be a reason for your flash not working. so try installing the firmware which was present when the camera was working good.

check there is any debris in the hot shoe, there is a switch on the left that stops the pop up working when you put a external flash on.

If you have been using a speedlite or another flash on the hotshoe lately, there is a little metal strip in the hotshoe (rail) that disables the pop-up built-in flash. So, this little metal strip goes down when you slide in an external flash and disable the built-in flash by breaking an electrical contact. This little metal strip has the occasional tendency to get stucked down after unmounting your speedlite, which results in the behavior you are seeing. Just turn OFF your camera and use a toohpick in the hotshoe and force very gently the metal strip up to make the metal strip goes back to its original position when there is no speedlite mounted on your camera. Compare both sides in the hotshoe (rail). Turn it ON and there you go!

Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

Built-In Flash Not Working


Hi, I am certainly not an expert, however, I was having problems with that also. In addition, my viewfinder was almost black & white with a greenish tinge.

Come to find out there is a reset button inside where the battery is. You might try taking the battery out and leaving it out for 5 min. or so and see if this works. It fixed mine but not the screen. Then I tried the reset and that did not work. Then I took the battery out and then it worked!

When you reset the camera, you will have to re-enter your setting, ei, dates, etc.

Hope this helps.

I do have the same unit that I am currently using on a EOS 10D. It works fine for me. It lso operates on my EOS 350D but does not flash off quite bright enough on this camera in very low light.The unit was previously paired with a canon EOS 5 film.
