The flash may be broken.
If not these are the flash settings on the camera in case a different flash mode has been set accidently.
Set the mode dial to [camera icon], and press [up arrow] on the control button repeatedly to select a flash mode.
The flash mode has the following features.
No indicator (Auto):
The camera decides to use the flash based on lighting
conditions. The flash will be used when
there is not enough light or when shooting a
subject against a light source.
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient light.
The flash will be used regardless of the amount of ambient
light. In this mode, the shutter speed is
slower under dark conditions, so you can
clearly shoot a background that is out of the flash-lit area.
On the top side of the camera is a button that says Open and this pops up the flash with should then activate. Have a look in the camera menu to ensure flash is selected as active. Sometime your camera flash will only work when the camera decides there is a need for extra light.
Yes, but not in the Auto mode, where the camera decides whether or not it needs the flash. Switch to the P mode, which works like Auto except you have control over the flash, exposure, and other factors. See pages 26 and 42 of this manual.
First, you have to be in one of the PSAM modes; in the other modes the camera decides whether it needs the flash and in daylight it will decide there's enough light without it. So, after turning the model dial to one of the PSAM positions, press the flash button on the front of the camera to pop up the flash. In these modes the camera will fire the flash if it's popped up, and not if it's down.
To change the flash mode, hold down the flash button (after it's popped up) and turn the command dial. Depending on the chosen exposure mode, your choices may include Fill flash, Red-eye reduction, Rear-curtain sync, Slow sync, Rear-curtain plus red-eye reduction, and Rear-curtain plus slow sync. Refer to the "Flash Mode" section of the manual for full details.
An easy way to test for output on the remote controllers is to point them at a camera from a mobile phone. If you watch the camera picture whilst pressing buttons, the LED's will flash and show you the output. If you have dodgey buttons, it will show up as no LED flash. Hope that helps to decide where your fault is.
Your camera has 4 modes flash function :
1; Flash Off ( flash will Off in any shoot)
2. Flash Fill in ( flash always On)
3. Auto Flash (Camera decided flash)
4. Red Eye reduction flash ( Camera decide flash).
You can set your flash base on your need.
On many digital cameras the flash is automatic. The camera senses the brightness and decides whether to set the flash ON or OFF. I would like to know what happens when you instruct the camera to always put flash ON irrespective of lighting condition? (You can do that by selecting left button on the circular selection button.. the one with lightning arrow) Please let me know if that works..
