My FX33 has stopped allowing photos taken with the flash - the icon comes up in red with a cross through and photos will not take. If you force the flash off, pictures can be taken, but obviously this doesn't work at night!

The multi selector is the round control on the rear of the camera with the OK button in its center.
The flash mode button is the top button on the selector, it has a lightning flash icon.
Press the flash mode button on the multi selector.
Highlight the desired mode and press the center of the multi selector.
The flash modes are:
AUTO; Flash fires automatically when lighting is poor.
AUTO WITH RED-EYE REDUCTION; Reduces "red eye" in portraits.
OFF; Flash will not fire even when lighting is poor.
FILL FLASH; Flash fires whenever picture is taken. Use to "fill-in" (illuminate) shadows and back-lit subjects.
SLOW SYNC; Flash illuminates mainsubject; slow shutter speeds are used to capture background at night or under dim light
The selected flash mode icon appears at the top of the monitor.
As long as jog dial is set to M or manual, the flash will not pop up automatically. Be reminded though because you have to set everything manually. If you want the auto settings without the flash, set the jog dial to the icon that looks like a lightning with stop/ no sign
dear sir, the first suspect is your battery,which is running in low battery....kindly recharge the battery for few hours and then put your camera on........
next,the problem is usually caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not to function,the only solution is to flash ur cam software from the nearest samsung service centre
camera has a built in flash function which enables you to take photos when the
light condition is not good. 1.
Press the Up button. (for reference of buttons, please see the below figure mentioned) 2.
Press the Up button once until you see the icon appear on the LCD screen. This
indicates that the flash is forced on. 3.
Press the Up button again to change to the auto flash function. 4.
The icon will appear at the top of the LCD indicating that the auto flash is
turned on and ready to use. 5.
Press the Up button again to change from the auto flash to the red eye
The icon will appear on the LCD indicating that the red eye reduction function
has been activated. 7. To turn
off the flash function, press the Up button again until the icon is displayed
on the LCD. Note: A
“Low Power” message will appear on the LCD screen, if you select the flash
function when the battery power is insufficient. To continue
using the camera with the flash, please change new batteries
Double-check your flash settings. You mentioned the camera is in Auto mode, but the flash has separate settings from the camera's shooting mode. With the camera in shooting mode AUTO check the Flash settings (Auto, Red-Eye Reduction, Fill-In, Off) It may be set to 'fill' causing your photos to be too bright. Also, depending on how close you are to your subject the flash may not be needed. Using the flash when too close to your subject (less then 3 ft.) will cause bright/white photos. Turn the flash OFF if you are taking macro or photos closer then 3ft. If neither of these fix your problem, turn the flash mode OFF, and camera shooting mode to AUTO and in a naturally well lit area, take a photo, if the photo is still too bright, you may have something mechanically wrong with your camera.
You don't say which model Digimax you have. Hopefully this will cover most models.
First, make sure the menu is not being displayed on the LCD monitor, otherwise you'll just move around in the menu screen. You must also be in photo record mode, ready to take a picture (not in playback or movie mode).
There is a button (usually on the left side of the direction pad) that looks like a lightning bolt. I can't remember the exact number of times you must press it, but the display should indicate that the flash is turned off as one of the options as you cycle through them.
Depending on your model, the modes are likely to be Auto Flash (bolt with an "A" icon), Auto with Red-eye reduction ("eye" icon), fill flash - always on ("bolt" icon), Slow sync (bolt with an "S" icon), and flash off (bold with a line through it icon).
Also depending on your model, you may not be able to turn the flash off depending on which recording mode you're in. For instance, you can't turn the flash off if you're in the "Backlight" recording mode.
I;ve been on the internet all morning researching the same problem. It appears it's a curcuit related problem with the flash. As of know, haven't got a solution other then buying another camera or taking paictures in manuel mode without flash.
