You can try to carefully bend the support arms on the hot shoe, bend them down so the flash is tighter to the hot shoe connections. But be careful you do not bend them too much.

THE FLASH ON MY NIKON P500 IS NOT WORKING WHEN IT IS RAISED AND I SELECT FLASH ON IT SAYS RAISE FLASH HOW I CAN THIS


To be sure something could be wrong with your camera flash, please put the camera in automatic and try making a picture in a dark situation. The flash should be pop up and fire, when the camera is in focus, and you press the shutter button fully.
Perhaps you know there are situations, the flash does not fire, even when you open it yourself. In the P, S, A and M, it only can fire if the ISO setting is on auto. Some scenes you can select, also won't fire the flash, even when you put it up.
there are more things, to shooting with flash than jute putting it up.
But when you try it like I said above you schools see a flash icon on the display for a few seconds and the flash should fire. If not, I'm afraid you must contact the Nikon service centre close by you.

success.

Nikon d40 flash won't fire


Hi,

If it clicks when the flash is already open, it seems there would be a problem with the flash open sensor. The camera thinks the flash is closed, so it tries to open it again and it refuses to fire, because firing in the closed position would blow the bulb.

The D40 flash is a bit different, but if you open it (just unscrew the two little screws in front) you'll recognize the sensor clips. Open and close the flash and see if the make contact when open.

(And DON'T fire the flash when open, or at the very least don't touch anything in there when firing or you'll get zapped.

Goodluck..

In my holga 120 cfn the flash doesn't go off when i press the shutter. the batteries seem fine and the orange light turns on, but when i press the shutter nothing happens. a couple of times it has worked,...


The flash would fire as per the requirement, in auto mode.

If the ambient light is enough then the flash will not fire.

In case you need to use the flash in bright conditions (e.g. For using as a fill flash) please repeatedly press the flash button (The one with the lightning symbol on it) till you get a lightning bolt symbol on the camera display.

Now your flash will fire on every shot that you click!

Please ensure that you revert back to the Auto mode once done.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

Camera fails to flash every time we take a picture


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. a86196b.jpg
4.Take a picture. [If flash still doesn't work contact Kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)]

Flash stopped working


Have you tried to reset the camera to its factory defaults to see if it is a setting that is causing the flash not to fire? To reset the camera go to the menu left arrow to reset - highlight yes and press ok. This will set the camera back to factory settings. See if the flash fires now. If it does then, good. If not, then it is a repair issue with the flash assembly internally in the camera.

The flash will not work on my Samsung S860 Digital Camera. It used to work and now it doesn't... I tried to go through the menu to fix it and it seems to say it is on? But, when you take a picture it does...


the S860 has three flash modes in which the flash only fires under certain conditions.
- in Auto Flash mode and Auto & Red Eye Reduction mode, the flash will only fire if the subject or background is dark; otherwise it won't flash.
- in Slow Synchro mode, the flash only fires when the camera's using a slow shutter speed.
if you have your flash mode set to any of these, the flash will only fire when the camera determines that flash is needed; otherwise it won't fire. to have the flash fire all the time and automatically vary its intensity according to how much light is needed, set the flash mode to Fill flash; to turn the flash off altogether (so that it won't fire no matter what), set the flash mode to Flash Off.
for all the details on the S860's flash modes, you can download the user manual here and refer to pages 28 and 29.
hope this helps...
