Press cursor-up (marked with a lightning bolt) to cycle through the various flash modes. For fill flash, select the lightning bolt without the letter "A" to force the flash to fire. See page 8 of the Basic Camera User Guide

Temperature problem with water. Incoming water when filled should be no less then 1/2 inch below heater. If not, possible water valve. Incoming water temp. min after fill. 120 degrees. Missaligned door. One of door switches not activating. Bad circulation motor. Not throwing water over heater. Tech.sheet behind bottom panel. Will tell you. Shorted heater.

Hello, the flash don't work with the shutter in all mode P A ... and the image are under exposed : there is no flash light on the photo. Thanks for your help, José , in FRANCE

My experience with these power shots is the flash capacitor unit witch draws current from the battery, Fills up then activates the flash is what your primary issue is.

654137e.jpg its ether that or the flash bulb itself without further look I would not be able to pinpoint it. If you value this camera you might want to take it to a camera shop.

please do be considerate and leave ratings or feedback before you leave, Thanks

Front load machine getting F 02 flashing on screen machine has stopped working??? Help

That code means the aquastop has activated. This means that you have a leak on the machine which is filling the tray underneath with water and stopping the machine from working. Probably a job for an engineer.

Hotpoint FDW60 flashing eco light

if the eco light is flashing, this indicates that saftey float switch has activated in the base of the dishwasher usually caused by a leak, a polystyrene float activates a microswitch which cuts of the water inlet supply

ALO1 flashing. Its as if the dishwasher is draining all the time. Won't reset even when turned off at the wall. Debbie

AL01 is activated when the dishwasher develops a leak and the internal water tray has filled with water. This activates the pump to drain water from the dishwasher. The tray needs emptying manually however and the source of the leak needs to be traced. Probably best to get an engineer in to do that.

Dishlex dishwasher global 300. Dishwasher continues to drain with ECO light flashing. Service manual says it is due to an incorrect fill level or fill line.

Some diswashers have a sump in the bottom with a float switch. If the water level overflows the float will activate the switch which will kill the machine and run the drain pump continuously.
