Question about Pentax Optio S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Flash stopped working, but I don't understand the manual instructions.

Can someone tell me in layman's terms how to get my flash to work? I have fresh batteries so I may have turned the flash off accidentially. How do I turn it back on?

To ensure the flash is functioning study the manual and check the LCD menu to such a feature as a flash on/off control.

Why does a red light flash next to the cruise control button, I have a 2002 Honda accord sedan. Can any body tell me why?


To [put it in layman terms, there is an electric motor that operates your gas pedal instead of your feet. There is something wrong with that mechanism, and the motor will no longer work. I would bet after 13 years on the road it will need a motor actuator, one of the rods connecting the cruise control motor to the throttle is rusted or jammed up. I would check it out mechanically for 5 mins before you get into more technical problems.

Basically : Flashing red light = broke
Green light = not broke

Some time internal flash does not work in my nikon D3100 camera


When in program and manual mode, you will have to set it to flash. Make sure the circle around the electric bolt on the screen does not have a line through it, and it should work. There is usually a button with the symbol on it somewhere around the lcd(I'm not very familiar with your model or I'd tell you where) or it may be in the on screen menus if it's not a button around the screen.

Flash on camera not working lg viewty


hi, even i have the same problem, probably i don't think the flash doesn't work, but even i didn't know how to use it. however, the instruction manual says there are 3 options in flash, they are auto- that is it turns flash automatically on when it turns on. red eye reduction that is it says it will flash twice to reduce red eye but i never see the flash on and the flash off, that is it will not turn on and usually whenever you exit the camera the flash will default to turn off mode. you will need to switch the flash back. hope you understand.

Busy when i use the flash.


The capacitor in the flash circuitry needs to be charged to a before the flash can be fired. This chargeing time is termed as flash recycle time and duriing this window the camera wilkl show that it is 'BUSY'.

Fujifilm FinePix 3800 flash will not work


Normally when the flash stops working it is because the capacitor the camera uses to store the flash power ( that is what charges..not the bulb) burns out. This is a very difficult repair and should only be completed by a camera technician.
If the repair is over 10 dollars I would suggest a new camera.
