Check the manual- it may be in the menu or a separate button. When you are sure it is switched on put the camera to your ear and listen for the flash charging up[a High whistle sound] If it does not come on or the ready light does not show - then assume it has failed. Contact Sony customer support for further advice

How to turn the flash off DMC-TZ1 camera?


On the menu set button at the bottom right at the back of the camera, if you press the right hand side of this you can change the way the flash operates from auto, auto/red-eye reduction, forced on... and the final one would be forced off. You can download the manual from http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/Support/Downloads/220239/index.html#anker_222458 enter DMC-TZ1 into the enter model box and then download the operating instructions and on page 40 it will show you how to do it.

My camera doesnt' work indoors. i try to take a picture and it doesnt' take when I'm in AUTO mode. However, when I'm in LANDSCAPE mode the pic will take. it seems like the flash isn't active in AUTO...


You must have a software glitch because the flash is supposed to be in the auto mode when the selector is in auto, unless you manually turn the flash off and the flash should go back to auto every time the camera is turned off and back on. Here's a work around. Turn the dial to indoor and use the flash button on the ring to set the flash to auto. In the indoor setting you can set the flash to on, off, or auto.

Dont know how to turn flash off on a samsung l100 camera.


Press the button with the lightning bolt icon and watch the screen. When you see a lightning bolt with a line through it, the flash is off.

Problem with Panasonic DMC-TZ5, can not take pictures with Flash.


My TZ5 has developed exactly the same problem. I took it to DK Audio Services at Horley,Surrey,RH8 9GA. who repair cameras for Panasonic and was told by the receptionist that although the camera works with the flash off at present it will eventually pack up altogether. She suggested that when I get the quote I phone Panasonic on 08705 3577 357 to try and get them to pay for the repair, it seems it is a known problem! My camera is just over a year old!!

Nikon D40 flash firing when down


Turn off the flash manually (top left button on the side of the camera body above the lens) or use the 'No Flash' Program Dial option - one click back from the green AUTO selector on your dial - the one with the lightning bolt inside a circle.

Flas stopped working


The problem you are describing is a problem with the flash charging indicator switch inside the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Hello i want to turn the auto flash off


Press the up arrow on the back of the camera - that seems to be the flash mode setting - select which flash mode you want - you have to hit the down arrow once to see the flash off option which is a picture of a flash symbol in a circle. Then press ok. The flash should now not fire.

HP Photosmart m415 Power Trouble


Did the camera ever get wet? It seems that the connection from the battery to the device is weak. Check the battery compartment for corrosion, which can be caused by humidity as well. Also feel if the metal connectors are tight. If all seems well, you will have to take it in for repair.
