I am taking close-ups in Macro mode and need to use flash. When I put the camera into Macro mode, it's defaulting to the "flash off" icon, squiggly lightning bolt with line through it. I'd like to adjust this so that it would do an auto-flash but when I try to adjust the flash setting, it doesn't change. Any ideas?

Macro mode is for taking pictures of subjects very close to the camera. In this mode the flash is disabled.
Without knowing the model of your Digital Concepts camera I can't tell you how to take it out of macro mode. If there's a button on the back marked with a flower icon, press it. Otherwise look in the menu.
First, check to make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the SD card slot. Slide the switch away from the flower toward the mountain to take it out of macro mode. The flash won't fire in macro mode.
Then, if the flash still doesn't fire, take a look at the flash mode. Press the up-arrow button to bring up the flash menu. If it's currently set in the lightning-bolt-in-a-circle-with-a-slash-through-it symbol, you've got the flash turned off. Set it to the lightning-bolt-and-"A" for automatic flash or the lightning-bolt for forced flash.
If the flash still doesn't fire, then it's broken.
If you mean the switch marked with a flower and a mountain, that's the macro/normal switch. The flower position puts the camera in macro mode, for taking pictures of things very close to the camera. This mode lets the camera focus close, and disables the flash. The mountain position puts the camera in normal mode, for most picture-taking.
For being up close to an object you want to put the camera in macro mode, there's a button with a flower on it, that indicates macro mode. You turn macro mode on and you're good to go for shooting photos up close to an object.

Page 16 of the user manual explains how to set up the camera for the macro mode. If you are using regular macro mode then you would also need to set the flash mode to off if you do not want it to fire automatically (page 15 of the user manual refers how to disable the flash). If you are using the super macro mode then the flash would be set to off by default.
