Re: Camera does not flash
Problem is with the high voltage capacitor charge circuit. the internal battery voltage is stepped up to around 4 thouseand volts. this voltage is necessary to jump the electrode gap inside the xenon strobe tube which is the flash component

Hi Jazzy, Please see the detail below for the said error codes C31:23.
to the symptom and self diagnostic system the problem is in mechanical
section (tape loading section) Therefore camera just need mechanical
adjustment and will work fine again. This problem aries when the
insertion of the cassette is improper or forced insertion. Thanks for using fixya.
Press Menu button togle across from REC Mode to setup togle down thrice from camera to setup 1 togle across into sub menu togle down from four times to Initialize togle across again to the sub-menu togle up from cancel to OK press center button to accept the OK choice Screen changes and so press okay again It should restart the camera Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen togle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function. If it is still not working do not worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is generally a software error message and not a hardware malfunction. If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.
The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the flash up and pointed at you ( like you are going to take a picture of yourself) the pin is located on the right side close to the where the flash attaches to the camera. Yo should see a little pin sticking up. make sure that area is free of dust and /or debris. if it is not up then that is the problem. try to free it with out braking it or get it professionally repaired.
Guys - I just recevied a new H9 today. Was using it and decided to turn
the flash off. Later on I wanted to turn it back on and I got the
famous "flash settings cannot be changed" error message. I found the
problem. I had turned on the "continuous shooting" option as I wanted
to see how fast it would take photos continuously. When that option is
on, you cannot use the flash so therefore you cannot change the flash
settings. I put the camera back in "single-shot" mode and now the flash
works fine. I hope this fixes your issue.
