SOURCE: My Nikon Coolpix s230 flash

If there is a problem with the flash itself or the mainboard connection to the flash it will not charge. If the flash won't charge then it won't go off when you take a picture. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the flash with a good used one and see if that fixes it. If not, then you need to replace the mainboard. Good used parts can usually be found online for cheap; that auction website doesn't pay me to type their name, so I don't, sorry. Hope this helps!

LG symbol on screen flashes on once and red light blinks twice slowly, no sound either. What does 2 blinks indicate ? please advise


Corrupted firmware. A firmware update is necessary. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Missing latest firmware update file .bin


Updating your Routers Firmware

Locate and download the firmware file from the Belkin support site. (Type in your part number in the search box in the top right and look for "Firmware" in the title)
Save the file to a location on your computer where you can get to it easily, such as your desktop.
Connect the computer to one of the four gray ports on the back of the router.

Open a web browser on the computer.
In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1 and press Enter on your keyboard.
Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
Click on "Firmware Update" toward the bottom of the left-hand menu.
Click the Browse button toward the middle of the screen to search for the file you saved previously.

Select the firmware file by left-clicking on it and then click the Open button in the lower right corner of the window. This will take you back into the router's interface.
Click the Update button.
A prompt asking, "Are you sure you want to continue with upgrading?" will appear. Click OK.
A second prompt will open telling you the router will not respond during the upgrade and warning you not to remove the power supply to the router. Click OK once more.
Congratulations. The firmware has been updated successfully

Flash not working


i think your problem is that you are not flipping open the flash... the flash doesnt automatically flip open... and the blinking red icon in the lower left just means that since there isnt enough light, the camera will spend a bit longer to allow more light to enter the lens, hence you need to keep the camera steady and not shake it... hope this helped
