Perhaps you only changed the settings. As long as you are on automatic, and don't force the flash off, the flash should work when needed.
The multiple flash you mention, is the flash used to avoid red eyes.
With the first flash(es) the eye closes the pupil, so ref;action of the retina is minimal.
Sometimes the camera also uses the returning flash light to fine tune the focus, if on auto focus.
Just check if the camera is in the setting you always used. Just check if you have the best results with this setting.
The openning flash button only works on non automatic shooting modes. On creative zone (automatic options with predefined options) the flash will rise automatically, based on the current exposure conditions. On "Flash Off" mode won't rise the flash ever. Let me know, please if it solve the problem
Does your camera gave a small battery in place somewhere that is used to maintain the date and time settings? (it is generally a watch battery type small flat silver disk.) You should not have to reset time and date after each battery change.
Many digital cameras eat up batteries quickly, especially when using the flash alot., that is why it is important to use good quality rechargeables whenever possible.
I had the same problem.
Look closely at the hotshoe. Inside it, way over to the side, under one of the tabs on the side, is a tiny metal strip. When you attach an external flash, the strip is pushed down and holds down a tiny button that deactivated the pop-up flash. The strip can get bent so that it doesn't let the button come up even when the external flash is removed.
Very gently take a fingernail or a jeweler's screwdriver and run it underneath the metal strip. I had to do it a couple of times to get mine working again, but it's working great now!
YOU MIGHT KNOW THAT ELECTRICITY IS FLOWING THROUGHT YOUR BODY...IF YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH THE FLASH WITHOUT DISCHARGING YOUR BODY<TOUCHING METAL THAT IS TOUCHING THE GROUND> THEN THE FLASH MIGHT BURN...THIS MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED.
This camera has four flash modes and each time you press the button the mode changes. As you press the button you should see the indictor in the upper left side of the screen. 1.In automatic flash, the camera will decide if you need flash or not. This mode does not have any indicator on the screen 2.Forced flash, this will cause the flash to be constantly on. The indicator looks (kind of) like a lightning bolt. 3.Slow Syncro, this mode slightly delays the flash and is used to lighten up the background more the foreground. The indicator looks like the lightning bolt with SL next to it. 4.No flash, this will turn off the flash. The indicator looks like a lightning bolt enclosed by a circle with a diagonal line through the lightning bolt. (similar to a no parking sign).
If you don’t see the indictor changing on the screen the switch behind the button is malfunctioning.
