When in program and manual mode, you will have to set it to flash. Make sure the circle around the electric bolt on the screen does not have a line through it, and it should work. There is usually a button with the symbol on it somewhere around the lcd(I'm not very familiar with your model or I'd tell you where) or it may be in the on screen menus if it's not a button around the screen.
First, check to make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the SD card slot. Slide the switch away from the flower toward the mountain to take it out of macro mode. The flash won't fire in macro mode.
Then, if the flash still doesn't fire, take a look at the flash mode. Press the up-arrow button to bring up the flash menu. If it's currently set in the lightning-bolt-in-a-circle-with-a-slash-through-it symbol, you've got the flash turned off. Set it to the lightning-bolt-and-"A" for automatic flash or the lightning-bolt for forced flash.
If the flash still doesn't fire, then it's broken.
Usually the pop up flash will extend when the program calls for it or the user has manually turned it on, and it will fire without an issue. Page 70 of the manual goes into detail how it is set up and uses graphics which won't work very well here. Unless you have the "circle with a line though it" over the lightning bolt "flash" symbol, the flash should fire when needed.
It is possible that the flash lamp has failed, and may need to be replaced. Contact Nikon Service & Support or other reputable camera shop to help you with that.
Ascertain that the camera has an alternate buton to activate the flash. In situaiton that camera has an automatic flash would take effect whenever envrionmental conditions either lightening requirements were observable. refer to the cameras user guide to familirise with feature functiosn.
On the top of the camera, near the wheel, there are 2 small round buttons, the one nearest the wheel has a lightning bolt on it, this button scrolls through flash modes. Change it to where the mode is a lightning bolt with a circle and diagonal line through it and flash should be disabled.
On the control button (large button on the back) at the top is a symbol that looks like a lightning bolt with an arrow tip. This is also the UP arrow. When you press it continually, the flash options will be noted by symbols.
No indicator - Auto
Lightning bolt - Flash forced on
Lightning bolt followed by SL - Slow Synchronized flash
Lightning bolt with the circle and line through it - Flash Forced off
1.Turn off the camera. 2.Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera. then turn it ON 3.Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash. 4.Take a picture. [If flash still doesn't work contact Kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)]
Hi! To turn On the flash you just need to press the flash button on the top of the camera., Flash button is like a down arrow or lightning icon., make sure that the flash symbol is set to A -icon or eye- icon or may be a down arrow symbol., if you see on your LCD a circle icon with a down arrow it means your flash is off., Gudluck!
