Problems with Flash

I've had this camera for about a year now, and I just recently noticed that my flash does not work properly. When the camera is on "Flash Auto," sometimes the picture turns out really dark or really bright. Also, when the flash is on, I noticed that in each flash, three to four discontinuous flashes occur. (Usually the flashes are continuous.) Is there a way of fixing this? If so, how? (I don't think it's because of my settings since they are normal settings.)

Press Menu button

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.

Flash icon


Same problem with the red flash icon. I can take a picture if I turn off the flash as well, but have to turn off the flash every time I open the lens. Have had the camera for 5 years and haven't had a problem. We needed to replace the lens cover recently and after we replaced the cover we started having this flash problem. It was working fine before the cover came off which leads me to believe we've changed our settings somehow....pleas
