The flash on my Panasonic DMC-FZ100 doesn't work, I've tried 'forced flash' and thats not working either?


Hello Ray, This is not something a user wants to attempt !!! The camera really needs to be repaired by a tech. You will do more harm than good by trying to fix it yourself and will cost even more if you damage something.

Best Regards, Russell

When trying to view my pictures, a square comes up and says, "No Image." I don't know how to view my pictures. Where did they all go? I've never had this problem before.


Sounds like the memory card has corrupted. See the corrupted card procedures and the included software at this link. Of the software listed, recommend trying MiniTools first, and if that doesn't work, trying PhotoRec next.

My Nikon Coolpix s230 flash won't work. It just blinks red in the lower right hand corner. I've tried all the settings and they all won't flash.


If there is a problem with the flash itself or the mainboard connection to the flash it will not charge. If the flash won't charge then it won't go off when you take a picture. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the flash with a good used one and see if that fixes it. If not, then you need to replace the mainboard. Good used parts can usually be found online for cheap; that auction website doesn't pay me to type their name, so I don't, sorry. Hope this helps!

Flash just doesn't work on Kodak Easyshare V1253. whether on automatic flash or flash set to on. Used to have problems with the lens not fully closing, don't know if that helps. All in all, i have...


When you were having that lens problem, did you perchance open the camera case to repair it? If so, please see this link, and afterwards verify that all outer case screws are present and firmly seated (but don't strip them).

I´ve opened the camera to clean it up


1. You shouldn't have opened it. 2. You probably shorted out the capacitor...lucky you didn't get burned. 3. You need repairs...bring lots of money.

My camera c633 takes photos but flash wont work????even with new batt???


It is eathe the bulb or the flash circuit. if you are going to fix it yourself watch out for the flash compasitor. If you are going to send it in watch the cost. It sould be fairly cheap to have fixed.

Flash: PCB Replacement v. New Bulb!?


I had the same issue. The flash is set to go off, the camera assumes it went off, (as the record metadata shows) but it doen't go off at all, and the piture is underexposed.

I bought the 100 page repair manual, which is ONLY a dissassemble/reassemble manual with NO diagnostics. (Got it on ebay) So I was atleast able to get to the capacitor and flash bulb. I saw 300V across the capacitor leads, and the same 300Volts across the flash bulb leads. SO I am assuming that there is a transistor or relay that drops to ground to fire the flash that isn't working, or the electronic signal to drive that isn't working.

It seems most people replace the entire flash circuit board(which is near the capacitor under the left hand side). But it seems Nikon only sells parts to it certified repair facilities.

Ugh.... Looks like I'm buying a SB-600, as this is the cheepest solution. Too bad, because the on-board flash is more than decent. I hope the SB-600 thrills me enough to change my mood. :)
