Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flash I used to be able to switch the flash settings on the camera, when it's on 'auto adjustment', from on to off or automatic but now its just stuck on off and it doesn't allow me to change the settings. The only choice I have is to attempt using the 'twilight portrait' but I don't get the same effect.

Re: Flash

My problem is similar. Takes photo fine. Views most recent photo fine. Cannot zoom. Cannot regulate flash. Cannot scroll photos. Cannot delete. Essentially, all those buttons are non-responsive. I first noticed it with the flash. Can you do these other things? I think it is an internal failure. Just past one year old. Has been subject to tempurature change lately.

How do I adjust my flash mode on auto shooting mode?

I don't know the Leica camera, but the auto mode means the camera does take care of everything. The only thing you can do is choose the camera, not to use the flash, so it needs to measure and use a higher ISO. But if you want to adjust the flash, see what the camera did choose for shutter speed and aperture. Then put it in manual, choose the same and use your flash to the setting you want. Then adjust your settings. Can be the speed and or aperture, but also the flash to 1/2 1/4 or moe.

Want to disable auto flash

Hi Louise-
Nice camera!
With the camera ON, click the function set wheel on the back of the camera on the right side next to the 'lightning bolt'. If you think of the wheel as a clock, touch the function set wheel at '3:00' with your nail. This will show three choices: flash automatic, flash on, or flash off. Choose 'flash on' and the camera will flash all the time.
Hope this helps!

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.

How do I disable the pop-up flash on Nikon D5000? Thanks

As long as jog dial is set to M or manual, the flash will not pop up automatically. Be reminded though because you have to set everything manually. If you want the auto settings without the flash, set the jog dial to the icon that looks like a lightning with stop/ no sign

My camera wont flash ... How do i get it to flash ?

Most cameras have a button that looks like a lightning bolt. Hit that button and it will usually switch between flash options or it will bring up a flash menu. Some camera modes will automatically set your camera to auto flash, so if the room is dark, flash is on, and room is light enough the flash shuts off. You might need to switch to a different picture mode, like P or Programmable that lets you manually set your camera options.

Nikon d40x cannot force flash on auto mode

That is correct. Auto mode is exactly what the name says. The camera automatically decides whether to use the flash or not.

If you need to use the flash, switch to one of the non-auto exposure modes, such as P.

How to switch on Auto Flash in Auto mode

Put the camera in "P" and press the flash button above the lens release. If the flash pops, than you probably just have too much light to need it when you are in auto. The flash button is not active in auto so if the xti doesn't want the flash in auto, u can't make it fire. If the flash button does not make the flash pop in "P", search this site for another post about flash not working and u will find that this could be the flash deactivation button in the hot shoe sticking. Not likely though with a new camera unless u have had a speedlite mounted alot.--

I found the answer and fixed my flash. Look on

This will describe how, if you have been using a speedlite alot, than the little tab under the shutter release side of the hot shoe can get bent down thus constantly pressing down (toward the bottom of the camera) the small button which deactivates the pop-up1.gif flash even when the speedlite is not attached. Just bend the tab up a little with a jewler's screwdriver, turn the camera off and on and voila!! Fixed!!! Dan describes pushing the tab down, but on the xti, the tab needs to be bent up to release the flash deactivation switch and fix the problem. Thanks to Dan D on photonet for saving me a service call.
