Flash not working seems to be an ongoing problem with this model. Contact customer support at and fill out a repair request. My camera is also an A402 over 2yrs old and supposedly they are going to repair the flash free of charge. You'll have to pay to ship it.

    Update! Samsung will repair my camera for $55. I'm refusing to pay that! Will still try to get them to repair FOC! If not, will try to repair myself.

Camera will not switch on in operate mode.

Can you test the voltage of the charged batteries, often they will not hold full charge for several reasons, age, factory imperfection, over use, haven't been allowed to discharge fully before recharge, dirty battery contacts, if you can, try new non rechargeable batteries, often cameras get temperamental about batteries after some time, use a metal tarnish cleaner with a cue tip, on the contacts, or pure alcohol, if bad, use plastic scourer, cold batteries don't work well, warm them in your hands if cold.

Flash not working

Can be for severe; reasons.
1. There is enough light.
2. You can force the flash, with the mode switch to Flash forced on, Slow synchro and Flash forced off. Try flash forced on.
3. The battery is not fully charged. When there is not enough power in the battery, the flash can't be charged enough to fire. But if the camera tries to charge the flash, a symbol with a lightening arrow and a dot is displayed. So if you see these symbols, could be you need better batteries. Try charging the battery.
4. the flash is really defect. Could happen too, but first check if everything from 1 to 3 is as it should be. only than you have to visit the repair shop or Sony if it is still in warranty.

I have a HP Photo Smart R707 with a fully charged new battery and the flash won't work. Keep getting charging flash. Any help on this?

The flash mode has to be set.

There are 5 flash modes:
  • auto - flash fires when needed
  • red-eye reduction - flash fires when needed, but there's a pre-flash to minimize red-eye
  • flash on - flash always fires
  • flash off - flash never fires
  • night - flash fires if necessary (and uses red-eye reduction) to illuminate foreground objects, but shutter stays open to record the background by ambient illumination

I fully charged my flea, and now it won't stop flashing

I think I found a solution.

My flea would keep blinking the ready light after disconnecting from the USB charger. I ran it on the low setting for a few minutes and then turned it off. It stopped. Maybe you need to take the "top" off the charge. We'll see if it works.

As a first step, make sure the batteries are fully charged and check in the Shooting menu if you have switched the flash to 'off' mode. Then check the shooting mode. In some shooting modes (like landscape), some cameras do not fire the flash. To check if the flash is working properly, change the mode to 'Night Portrait' and try to shoot. This mode is sure to fire the flash if everything is well with the camera. If still the flash is not working, take it to the nearest authorized service center.

Having trouble with turning it on

Try changing to rechargable batteries. I had exactly the same problem. I used recharable they run out so tried various types of alkaline batteries but the camera would not turn on. Getting the flashing green light. Charged the batteries put them back in and working again

Samsung A402 flash problems ¬¬

I do not have a solution but my camera has the exact same problem! Supposedly Samsung will charge a $55.00 fee to fix the flash, but several people seem to be having the exact same problem with their flash just not working, there should be something we can do about it.
