Re: Problem with Flash in FZ8

In your menu's look for the entry named "conversion" make sure that it is "off" it seems when this mode is on, flash is forced off.

Camera flash will not work. Is there a fuse or can the bulb be replaced?

Check the settings... some specific settings like multi burst and video mode will not allow you to shoot with flash... Also try resetting the Camera.

The flash on my camera will not turn on no matter what I do. The flash button won't bring up a flash menu or anything. Any suggestions?

Flash is deactivated in motion picture mode, scenery, night scenery, sunset, highsens, starry sky, fireworks or aerial photo in scene mode.

I've lost download software for my DMC-FZ8

You should be able to download your pictures with almost any graphics program. You can also use the program that came on lab lade disks a few years ago. You can try the manufacturer for a program, if you registered when you bought it.
