Re: Flash does not work.

Switch on the flash and put the camera to your ear.
If you can hear a hgh pitched whine then this uggests the flash tubs has blown
If you cannot then the capacitor more likely has failed.
It may be possible to repair - Check out the Olympus web site.

It sounds like the flash went to sleep. The normal time for this is 10 minutes. If you switch the camera over to slave mode, it should switch to 60 minutes.
I hope this helps! That's a great setup!

My samsung s630 camera takes great pictures, but my flash will not work on any setting i choose please help

Dear Sir,
1.Please put your camera in manual mode or program mode after this select the flash option and then select fill in mode.
2.After this press the shutter button and hold it this will energize the flash and help to take the photo.
3.If these steps do not work then you will have to change the batteries.

Hi, my problem is the flash does not flash. The HS10 is a great camera, which I highly recommend and it does everything and more that I was hoping it would do. The flash worked great and then one day no...

As I have suggested many times, try resetting all adjustments in the menus to factory specs., or what may also be called default settings, or something like that.
Then test the camera again, making sure that the flash settings are set to be used as you need them or the way you like.

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and...

I had the same problem.
Look closely at the hotshoe. Inside it, way over to the side, under one of the tabs on the side, is a tiny metal strip. When you attach an external flash, the strip is pushed down and holds down a tiny button that deactivated the pop-up flash. The strip can get bent so that it doesn't let the button come up even when the external flash is removed.
Very gently take a fingernail or a jeweler's screwdriver and run it underneath the metal strip. I had to do it a couple of times to get mine working again, but it's working great now!

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.

Did you try to reinitialize? Setup menu go down to the third Setup#1 menu and make sure you click OK to reinitialize. That's what the manual said.
