NIkon Coolpix 2100 Digital Camera

Flash doesn't go off. I know it is already set to automatic, meaning the flash goes off when needed (or did until today). Bought new rechargeable batteries, recharged them all night, put them in the camera and it shows the batteries are good, so it isn't a battery problem. It takes photographs as usual, but no flash. Tried manual setting, still no flash. Tried shooting in the dark, no flash. Any suggestions? thanks in advance.

Change the setting off from automatic. Choose Flash for all your pictures.

Why won't my nikon coolpix s8000 camera flash pop up or register that it is up?

Do you have "Flash off" selected in menu? Also, if in manual modes, will not come up automatically. Try auto.

How do i tun the flash on?

If you don't know how, in the manual are several pictures that show how you can open the flash, by just taking it between thumb and finger and lifting it.
You can select different shooting modes, by pressing the little knob on the back with the camera logo. But when you are in auto mode, the camera will decide when the flash goes on. When you are in other modes, you can put the flash into different modes. Like automatic flash, automatic flash with red eye reduction, off, fill flash or slow sync.
This is all explained in the manual, that is still online. (Nikon has manuals of all the cameras it ever sold, online)
In the English manual, (Nikon USA) it is on page 29.

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..

The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

The pop up flash stopped working on my Nikon Coolpix L110 camera. Camera still works, but without the flash, the pictures are less than desirable. What can I do to correct this problem?

Check your settings first. If this still doesn't work then you'll have to take/send your camera to an authorized Nikon service center.

Hello I have a nikon coolpix L20 and the flash is not working we can heard like if the camera sent the order to the flash but nothing is happening is this something in camera configuration or should I...

How long did you have this camera already? The HID (high - intensity discharge) bulb might have been busted already and needs replacement. It shouldn't cost that much so have he flash bulb replaced from your local camera shop. =)

Problem with the Flash Light of Nikon COOLPIX L12 Digital Camera

I know some of the common things for the digital camera. I want you to try these.

-------->If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
-------->Set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness.

IMPORTANT: If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:

* When shooting MPEG movies
* When set to the Twilight mode
* If an external flash is connected

The information above should resolve your issue. However, if the issue still persists, you can try resetting the camera to factory specifications.
Some cameras have a RESET button built into them or a menu option to reset the camera to the default settings.
Refer to the instruction manual supplied with your camera for specific information regarding the availability of a RESET button or menu option to reset the default settings. Otherwise, continue with the manual reset procedure below.

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Ensure the camera is not connected to an AC power adapter.
3. Remove the battery from the camera for 15 seconds.
4. Reinsert the battery.
5. Turn on the camera.

If all the above fails you, then i doubt that Impact damage would have caused the flash not to work.
But i know you are not going to like this solution. No other way , you have to contact Nikon service centre for repair.

i hope this helps to fix your problem.
Thanx for using fixya.

Camera possessed, lol

From the menu of the camera, you need to change and select the settings for the pictures. Some cameras have this option where it will take one or more picture automatically. Also check that the self timer is off.

Nikon Coolpix L4 flash not working

This has happened to mine a couple of times. I cannot select flash, and the blur indicator is on most of the time.
Solution is to go into 'menu', select 'SET UP' then 'reset all'. My flash selection then works again.
Since one doesn't tend to set much up with a basic camera like this, resetting shouldn't cause any issues.
Hope this helps

Go to manu, check the setting. There can be an option for pictures outdoor or indoor, also check the flash settings.
