I do not know allot about the s5090, but I can give you general information based on how most Nikon pocket cameras are designed to work. If the Nikon is set to one of the automatic modes it is designed to prevent you from taking a picture if it senses that there is insufficient light to get a properly exposed picture. The camera may be telling you to rase the flash because it needs more light. Also, somewhere on your camera there is probably a menu that allows you to choose the flash mode. It may be in your regular menus or, if your camera has a round left-righ-up-down switch on the back, you can select the flash mode by pushing up and then using the right-left keys to choose the flash mode. The mode you select is locked in when you push the button in the center. In general, the modes are automatic (the camera decides when flash is needed), red eye reduction (the flash activates twice; once to cause your subjects eye's iris to close and the second to take the picture), flash always (flashes regardless of the ambient light) and flash off.
Using the camera:
Your phone has a flash to help you to take pictures in different
lighting environments. The flash is on by default, but you can turn it
off or use the automatic setting. To set the desired mode when using the
camera, select Options > Flash and Flash off, Flash
on or Automatic.
Fast viewing with memory card
To view your images and video clips quicker, use your memory card
as the main memory for storing them.
In the camera application, select Options > Settings
> Image / video storage > Memory card.
Capture and send
You can send the picture immediately after you have taken it when
you are previewing it. To display a picture immediately after you take
it, select Options > Settings > Image preview
time and the preview time. During the preview time, select Back
to take another picture, or Send to send the picture as a
Print your images
Your phone supports Nokia XpressPrint to print images that
are in .jpg format. To print your pictures, connect your phone to a
compatible printer using a data cable or send the image by Bluetooth to a
printer supporting Bluetooth technology. Select the image you want to
print from the Gallery, and when viewing the picture, select Options
Yes. You can use the flash in auto or manual mode by setting the camera to manual shutter speed within the x-sync range and then selecting the aperture prescribed by the flash guide number or the displayed automatic f-stop on the flash. The flash can provide auto exposure with the camera in manual mode, but you need to be aware of the amount of ambient light which will not cause any exposure corrections by the camera in this mode. Another alternative is to select Aperture preferred automatic on the camera and the f-stop shown for the auto flash settings. This will allow the camera to vary the shutter speed but may cause long exposures if the camera is not sensitive to real-time flash readings.
Look at the thumb pad on the back of your camera (see picture below, courtesy of www.cameras.co.uk). The uppermost part of it acts not only as an up key in the menu selections, but in shooting modes controls the flash (as per the lightning symbol next to it). With the camera turned on and in automatic mode (the green camera icon on the mode selector dial) just press the flash button and look at the screen. Eventually you'll get an icon of a lightning flash behind a red circle with a bar across it, this disables the flash.
Note that if you have any of the other shooting modes selected then the flash may still operate as in those modes everything is pre-selected by the camera with no or few override options.

Assuming you're in one of the point&shoot modes (any mode other than the PSAM modes), press and hold the flash button on the front of the camera and turn the main command dial on the back to cycle through the available flash modes. To turn flash off, select the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it.
In the PSAM modes the flash will not pop up on its own.
If you can are turning the flash off and on, you are no longer in the "Auto" mode. Rotate the top selector dial to select the green "Auto" position. This will enable the camera to automatically select the best aperture and shutter speed based on the available lighting. It will also decide whether it needs flash or not.
As you gain confidence in your abilities, experiment with the other settings on the dial. May I suggest first trying the "P" program setting. This is similar to auto, but will enable you to turn off the flash during low-light level shots. Still the camera will select the best aperture and shutter speed based on the lighting. But in very low lighting, you may have to keep the camera extra steady (such as with a tripod) to minimize camera shake as the picture is taken.
