The Rectangles with a 'M' in it is the Multi-Burst mode. U must select 'Normal' Mode. Try this:
In the Autoshoot mode --> press menu --> Change back to 'Normal'.
You will now get rid of the rectangles with the 'M', and you can change your flash settings.

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.

My sony DSC H10 cameras flash isnt working what could it be?


Hi,

If the flash is not functioning, then the Camera flash may be turned off or ot is set to Auto and will only flash when the taking pictures in poorly lit environments. To turn on the flash so it works regardless of the lighting conditions, press the flash button on the Camera until the Forced Flash icon appears on the LCD screen. The flash button on the Camera has a lightning bolt symbol on it.
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 it enabled, the flash will still not work in the following settings.
When shooting movies.
When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode.
When shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode.
Shooting with the Fireworks or high sensitivity mode. (ISO)
Following the above steps should resolve the issue. However, if the issue persists try resetting the Camera back to factory settings and specifications.
Try power resetting the Camera to check if it resolves the issue. To power reset the Camera, turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Remain the Camera without power for 60 seconds and reinsert the battery.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot get the flash to work.


If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera flash may be turned off or it is set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly lit environments. To turn on the flash so it works regardless of the lighting situation, press the flash button on the camera (or touch-screen LCD, if equipped) until the forced flash icon appears on the LCD screen. The flash button has a lightning bolt symbol on it



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 shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode
  • If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
  • Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  • Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  • If an external flash is connected

Describe how to turn on the flash


Hello,

On the control button (large button on the back) at the top is a symbol that looks like a lightning bolt with an arrow tip. This is also the UP arrow. When you press it continually, the flash options will be noted by symbols.

No indicator - Auto
Lightning bolt - Flash forced on
Lightning bolt followed by SL - Slow Synchronized flash
Lightning bolt with the circle and line through it - Flash Forced off

You can refer to the manual for your camera at:

http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCS500.pdf

Use of the control button is on Page 17.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a Polaroid t1031 Digital camera that I've only had since last Christmas. It has never been dropped or mishandled. However, the flash no longer works on it? The flash doesn't seem to be physically...


Sometimes the flash will be disabled when the battery is low in order to save power. Charge the battery fully and start up the camera.

At the top of the display, second from the left, you should see a symbol that contains a lightning bolt. This indicates the flash setting. Press the right side of the circular button until the symbol matches the picture on that button (just the bolt, no eye or A or anything). Now the flash is set to forced on. Try taking a picture.

If the flash still is not going off, something is broken. Call Polaroid. They may replace it if you have a receipt (as long as it's not refurbished or over a year old).

I had the same problem. You locked your flash by mistake if you have a lock symbol on your LCD. Press the ON/OFF & Sel buttons simultaneously & the lock symbol will disappear. Then reset your unit by pressing Mode & ON/OFF simultaneously for 3 second & you are good to go!
