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.

Canon T3 flash flutters and does not take pictures help!

The 'fluttering' is a pre flash used to help the camera focus in low light. The internal flash isn't a powerful flash and is usually only good enough for subjects up to about 2m away in reasonable light also to light a subject that is back lit. Try putting the camera in manual mode (M) 1/60sec on f5.6 flash popped up review it and make adjustments accordingly i.e. open up or shut down the aperture as the flash usually syncs at 1/60

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.
Regards, Chandrachur

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.

Nikon D300 and Quantaray Flash...

I use their products and have had great success as well as great response. I don't have the Quantaray, but if you contact them they will most likely have a direct solution for that flash.

My flash works great except only intermittently. I often have to unseat from camera and seat again. Seems contact with shoe is intermittent. I haev it on a Fuji S7000

The flash was never designed for that camera and there is an incompatibility in the automatic modes since the camera cannot TTL control the flash. Some will look good and some bad since the camera is unware of the flash. Using the camera in M - fully manual mode will help, but you will need to set the aperture in the lens to control how bright the flash will appear in the final photo.

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.
