Flash won't work on D70

Does it pop up? There can be a number of causes for this problem, from a bad circuit to a broken flash tube. Without a complete description of the symptoms I can only give you the most common cause of flash problems in the D70. If you can pop up the flash, remove the two screws under the flash and carefully pry off the flash cover. Check the flash pivot on the release side. There is a plastic piece that stick up from it that the wires go through that snaps into place, and it has a plastic piece that sticks out and operates the flash up switch. Impact can cause this pivot piece to fall into the camera so that the switch does not work. Also sometimes impact can cause the top blade of the switch to fall below the plastic piece so it doesn't close.

You have to remove the top cover and pop it into place from the inside (you could use a small hook but the wires that go through the pivot are very small and easily broken. There are any number of dis-assembly instructions on the internet, just seach. Make sure you discharge the flash capacitor or you can get a nasty shock

Flash just doesn't work on Kodak Easyshare V1253. whether on automatic flash or flash set to on. Used to have problems with the lens not fully closing, don't know if that helps. All in all, i have...

When you were having that lens problem, did you perchance open the camera case to repair it? If so, please see this link, and afterwards verify that all outer case screws are present and firmly seated (but don't strip them).

Fuji finepix f810 flash wont pop up when button pressed

hi your camera is kind of getting old but it is still great. some people really like it. personally I like also. however, fuji finepix f810 has little problem like yours due to delicate design. on your flash problem could has two sequence check. first is flash circuit defective or flash tube defective. second is main pcb doesn't work properly with flash function. your local repair shop would charge around $75 to 185. Fuji camera usually charge more than other brand. I am sorry that you know. Good luck with you and best regard.

Flash Error

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the flash up and pointed at you ( like you are going to take a picture of yourself) the pin is located on the right side close to the where the flash attaches to the camera. Yo should see a little pin sticking up. make sure that area is free of dust and /or debris. if it is not up then that is the problem. try to free it with out braking it or get it professionally repaired.

Flash is not working

The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).
