Can't change flash settings to Sony Cybershot DSC-H10 camera

Normally use the right side of the circle button on the back of the camera to change flash setting (on, off, auto, etc). It stopped working. When hitting ride side of wheel it says "can't change flash settings". The show camera in teh store has the same issue. Office Depot folks do not know how to fix. Please help me!!! Thanks I cannot manually set the camera to flash, regardless of how I have the dial set. Is this a repair issue? Thanks

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..


The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

Instructions:
1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

My canon EOS 400 D will not take a photograph. I have selected 'full auto' and when i press the shutter button the speed and f number are displayed in the viewfinder together with the number 9 at the right...


The flashing green dot is telling you that your settings aren't right for the conditions. You have to bring in the settings within range. As long as the dot flashes, nothing is set right. Put camera on auto mode. Then take a photo. look at what the camera set the f stop, iso, etc. That will help you learn to set manual settings in the right direction. I have a 30 d and it will do same thing if setting in the manual settings are not right.

How can I turn off auto flash in my canon sd 600 camera?


Press the flash button (right-arrow on the control panel, marked with a lightning bolt) repeatedly to cycle through the flash settings. To turn the flash off, select Off, marked by a lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it.

Don't forget to turn it back on when you're done.

SONY CYBERSHOT DSC - H3 DIGITAL CAMERA FLASH PROBLEM


Hi Jim,
Have you tried resetting all settings on the camera? On a Sony camera, it is called "initialize". The initialize setting is found by going to the menu, and tabbing down until you find an option called either "reset settings" or "initialize settings" and then confirm it.
Many times that will fix the issue, in case something has either been enabled/disabled on accident, or the software is sticking (which happens from time to time)
