The S860 has three flash modes in which the flash only fires under certain conditions.
- in Auto Flash mode and Auto & Red Eye Reduction mode, the flash will only fire if the subject or background is dark; otherwise it won't flash.
- in Slow Synchro mode, the flash only fires when the camera's using a slow shutter speed.
if you have your flash mode set to any of these, the flash will only fire when the camera determines that flash is needed; otherwise it won't fire. to have the flash fire all the time and automatically vary its intensity according to how much light is needed, set the flash mode to Fill flash; to turn the flash off altogether (so that it won't fire no matter what), set the flash mode to Flash Off.
for all the details on the S860's flash modes, you can download the user manual here and refer to pages 28 and 29.
hope this helps...

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

When i press the power button the led light flashes but it doesn't do nothing


That could mean a lens failure. Try to hook up adapter to computer if you haven't tried new batteries. Lens failure is quite common and it is best to spend a few bucks at a camera shop instead of trying to force it to work.
