Why does my Kodak pixpro fz41 sometimes a round orange light appears before I take the flash picture. Other times it doesn't do it.


This sometimes indicates that the exposure is correct for the distance of the subject. Remember that the flash on your camera is really only effective up to 3 - 4 meters

I have a 3.5kva generator (wold powerking) only used 3 times spent 8 months still in box. Starts up but wont produce power!


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. When a brush type generator sits for a long period of time they sometimes require a field flash to get the generator producing power again. You can do this with something as simple as a 9V battery (difficult method) or a hand drill. I would recommend the hand drill. What you do is start the generator with the drill connected and the output power turned on. Once up to speed turn the drill by hand rapidly several times. (This generates a field) Mind you the drill will take off at normal speed once the generator starts producing power so please don't have a death grip on the drill chuck as you rotate it. The bigger the drill the better (more field power)

If this does not get you going again just respond here and there are other ways we can get your generator to start putting out power again. I doubt given your usage that there is any real problem with the circuitry.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Shutter button causes camera to turn off


It is usually a battery strength issue. Try this, set the flash to "no flash" mode and try to take a shot. If it works with the flash set to "off", the batteries are probably not strong enough to power up the flash and shoot. If that doesn't work, try really, really GOOD batteries. Most of my customers with this problem solve the issue with Energizer Lithium AA batteries. We sell lots of these batteries, and it usually solves the problem.

Olympus E510, Flash Flicker


If you are in a low lit area with the camera dial set to Auto the flash will do a strobing type of flash trying to help allow more light into the scene. This is called the AF illuminator function. To just go ahead and take the image, put the camera dial to P (program Auto) go to Menu - go to Wrench 1 tab - then right arrow over and then down arrow to AF Illum - right arrow and turn this function from On to Off and then take the image in the P mode setting. No flash flicker should occur.

The flash keeps flashing


hi sneakers
the camera is firing the flash to help it auto focus,the only way to stop it find an area of the picture that has more light/contrast or switch to manual focusing.

Flash Setting on camera


time to bite the bullet and read.
flash is probably the most difficult thing to master in photography. and usually high end camera manuals are smaller than the manuals for the flash units that they use.
over brightness is a result sensor settings. if the camera is looking at a dark area, it will ask the flash for more light. so, see if you are using spot metering, which lets you pick a small area of the subject and set the light and exposure for that area. if it is, then be careful where it is pointed. if you are set for a more broad metering, your camera will call for an averaging of the area probably nearer the center, but take into consideration the entire frame. the book will guide you as to how the camera is set to 'see' the subject.
read, read, read. its not really hard if you take a little at a time.
good luck

The Flash on my camera won't work


When taking pictures, you must really be allowing time for the camera's flash to be charged
before you could take another picture so that camera will have enough time to rest and it
could function normally.
But if the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like flash will not work properly.

You could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Be in AUTO mode
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Turn it on and take a picture.
When you want to have just the AUTO FLASH.

- Rotate the mode dial to PROGRAM
- Press the LEFT/FLASH button until you've seen the
LIGHTNING icon with the Letter A on the leftmost part of the screen
- Try to take a picture by pressing and holding the shutter button
halfway first for 3-5 seconds and then press it all the way down

If it still does not work, you need to contact the Manufacturer.
