If you put the camera in Auto (the camera logo on the mail dial), pop p the flash, by pressing the button on the side of the flash, then the flash should fire, when you have a dark situation. Unless you selected flesh off in the settings menu. Look on page 37 of the manual.

SOURCE: Nikon CoolPix Flash Problem

This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.

SOURCE: flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12

I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

SOURCE: Nikon Coolpix battery will not charge

The battery could be near the end of it's useful life. Try another one to make sure it's the battery and not the camera.
