Check to see whether you've turned on the digital conversion for a wideangle or other lens. As I recall, that disables the flash. There may be a conflict between the flash and some of the other possible camera settings as well.

Camera is currently equipped with a Leica 12X zoom lens. I would like to be able to take pcs. from a greater distance than this lens permits. Can you recommend a lens that I can attache to the Panasonic DMC-F27 that will enable me to do so? Thank you!!
Do you have it turned off? Is there a picture of a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt until the screen shows a lightning bolt and an "a". Also, do you have the camera set on a scene mode such as night? The flash won't go off in some scene modes.
Hi, I have an FZ7K, here’s what I do: #1. Set the mode dial on top of the camera to “A”. #2. Set the aperture to the smallest f/number possible, f/2.8, f/3.2, f/3.3. #3. Now take pictures standing as close to the subject as possible, (or zoom the lens). For even better results, have the background farther away from your subject.
If you have a lightning symbol followed by “A” in the upper left corner of display, try to change it to forced flash (only lightning symbol) or reduce iso settings because probably the camera “thinks” there’s sufficient light for the photo.
In what mode are you trying to take photos? The flash will not work in certain modes (see the manual), for example the night mode. Or you accidentialy turned on sequential/burst mode (this is mode where camera takes more pictures on one shutter button press). Flash cannot be used in this mode also.
I don't have FX01, but on FZ8 the camera will show flash icon in red, but will take the picture anyway without flash being triggered.
The second problems seems like enabled power-saving mode, but those 5 seconds are too short for this. But anyway you can check in SETUP menu the settings for power-save.
Also maybe the flash is broken and camera noticed it... I don't think this could be a software problem. Either problem with the flash, but more probably just setting of wrong mode.
