Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33A Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flash will not function in auto mode

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!

How do I turn flash on and off?


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.

How do I disable the pop-up flash on Nikon D5000? Thanks


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

When I try to take a photo in portrait mode with the flash on auto or forced on the icon flashes red and the camera wont take photos. After about twenty seconds it comes up saying turn the camera off and...



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

thank you.....take care................

How do you turn the flash on? (with the vivitar vivicam 8018)


Your 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 function.
6. 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

Pictures that I take come out very white/bright. you cannot tell details. I have changed batteries and have the setting on auto.


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.

Flashing icon


Low shutter speed icon means that when you take photo the image will be blurry if camera moved.

Is there this icon when flashlight is turned on?

How do I turn my flash off on my samsung digimax 4010


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.

Olympus Stylus 710- no flash 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.
