Can not change my flash setting

When in the "auto" mode or any other mode (other than easy) when I touch the flash button the words "Flash settings cannot be changed" come up. What can I do so I can turn flash on?

    We have this same problem. The strange thing about it is I'm sure it hasn't always been this way. We used to be able to turn the flah on in other modes.

    I had this same problem on a recent trip. This problem seemed to fix itself after downloading the pictures to our PC and deleting them from the memory stick.

I found on another site advice to format the internal memory.
1) Remove the memory stick
2) press menu
3) There's a tab for memory management with a Format option. Format the memory

This seems to have worked for some people. Others said they had to format the memory stick (same steps as above), but with the stick still in.

Niether of these worked for me.

But I did find an "intialize" option on the set-up menu that restores the original defaults.

After doing all 3 of these things, the flash will now work in all modes.

How di I manually pop open the flash


Press the OPEN (flash) button.
This button is on the side of the camera just below the flash.

The flash mode button (lightning icon) is at the lower left on the rear of the camera.
This only changes settings when the flash is up.
This cycles through Auto, red-eye reduction, forced flash and no flash.
The mode shows in the finder or the LCD screen.
AUTO mode does not show.

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..


The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

Instructions:
1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Canon IXUS 80IS - I can't turn the flash on


When this camera is in "Auto" mode the only flash functions available are Auto or Flash Off - in order to get the option of "Flash On" for all pictures you have to put the camera in "Manual" mode - to do this:

-Set the mode switch to the camera icon
-Press the "Func./Set" button
-Use the left or right arrow keys to set it to Manual mode (its icon looks like half a camera with the letter M beside it)
-Press the "Func./Set" button again to save your mode change.

Now when you press the flash button and cycle through the choices there will also be a "Flash On" option.

What button do you use to turn off the flash on the olympis 710 digital camera?


Change your shooting mode to available light.

Your camera sets flash to auto when you set to auto mode. There are other modes where you can control the flash manually.

Sony Cybershot DSC-H7 - can not change flash settings


for anyone who wants to know how i solved my problem with the flash saying it cannot be changed...

If you go into the camera settings; look under rec mode. It might be in "burst" mode. Flash will only work while in "normal" mode.
