Cannot get flash to fire in Macro mode

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?

The manual says the flash range is 1' to 1.6 feet with setting the ISO speed to auto.

When I try to turn my flash on it says macro mode, What is this and how do I fix it?


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.

How do i get the flashed turned on


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.

What does the switch on the side mean


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.

My camera is on micro mode , How do i take it out and put it on manual flash?


There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB socket. Slide the switch away from the flower and toward the mountain to take it out of macro mode. The flash will not fire in macro mode.

To change the flash mode, touch the lightning bolt in the function area. Each touch will cycle through the various flash modes. The modes are described on page 13 of the manual.

Whenever I try to put on the flash, it says no flash in the macro mode. What does thaat mean and what do i do!!! Its really frustrating because it already doesn't take good pictures and i need the flash.


Macro mode is used for taking close-up pictures. In this mode, as the camera says, you cannot use the flash. There's a slide switch on the left side of the camera, near the USB jack. To take the camera out of macro mode, slide it away from the flower and toward the mountain.

The flash will not fire in macro mode because macro mode allows you to get close to your subject. Get out of macro mode by pressing a button with a picture of a flower on it or by it.

How do I set the camera to Macro and can I turn


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.
