Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 Digital Camera
Hi, Everytime I try to take a photo using the flash the icon for this will flash red and wont take a picture, if I turn the flash off it will then take the picture. Is there a way to reset the camera or a firmware update as I believe this could be a software problem. Also if I goto the menu after about 5 secs it asks me to turn the camera on and off again. Any help in fixing this will be greatly appriciated
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.

the first suspect is your battery,which is running in low battery....kindly recharge the battery for few hours and then put your camera on........
next,the problem is usually caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not to function,the only solution is to flash ur cam software from the nearest samsung service centre
thank you.....take care................
