SOURCE: Flash is not working

The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).

SOURCE: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F707 ...No flash.

Mine started to do that too. I charged the battery and then played with it taking the battery out and placing it back in and it just started to work again. Try placing it in manual mode as in shutter or appeture, rather that automatic and see if it makes a difference. These are things i played with before it started to work again.

Same happening to me. The solution is to try it in a different USB port, as it is a USB related issue.

SOURCE: Dell latitude D600 battery charge light flashing

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

I just bought a canon powershot sx120 is today. I can't get the flash to work. I lift the flash and once in about 20 tried it goes off but other then that it won't even take photos if the flash is up.


If the flash is on AUTO it will only fire if it needs to, such as in dim lighting.

Try putting the flash to ON mode and see what it does.

More likely this is a power problem.
It needs fully charged batteries to fire off the flash very well. If it "won't even take photo's" as you said that usually means there is not enough battery power to charge up the flash, so the whole camera is stuck until it gets done charging the flash.

This issue could be from using Alkaline batteries, they are not very strong and can't keep up with the power needs of a camera.

So if you haven't yet -- try some fully charged NiMH rechargeable AA batteries and it will probably run fine.

I have a HP Photo Smart R707 with a fully charged new battery and the flash won't work. Keep getting charging flash. Any help on this?


The flash mode has to be set.

There are 5 flash modes:
  • auto - flash fires when needed
  • red-eye reduction - flash fires when needed, but there's a pre-flash to minimize red-eye
  • flash on - flash always fires
  • flash off - flash never fires
  • night - flash fires if necessary (and uses red-eye reduction) to illuminate foreground objects, but shutter stays open to record the background by ambient illumination

My Olympus FE 360 is less than 6 months old and the flash just stopped working. is it possible that there is a ''simple'' reset or fix/test?


There is no reset or fix test. Just ensure that the battery is fully charged, and replace the battery. Replacing the batteries already reset the camera.
Ensure that you have selected Flash on the menu and shot a picture. If the flash does not start, then usually the small pcb that supplies power to the flash has a blown capacitor.
In that case call Olympus number listed on the owners manual. They will give you instructions to validate the warranty and get the camera repaired.

Regards.

No Horn


sounds like you have a dirty or missing ground connection or a fuse that's bad. the ground problem is usually best left to a technician (it can get pretty involved, but the fuse is a quick check and fix you can look at it and see if it is blown and get a new one at any auto parts store.
