Flash wont work

Use the flash when you take pictures at night, indoors, or outdoors in heavy shadows. You can chose what flash mode, by pressing several times on the little button on top of the camera where the lightening logo is. One of the settings is flash off. Make sure it is not in that mode, because even when it is dark the flash won't fire. The other modes are flash, fill in flash and red eye reduction flash.

My camera works fine in all ways except whenever i turn the 'flash' on and try to take picture the green light just flashes repeatedly and it won't take a picture at all, but if i turn the...

Referring user guide:


Are you press ligthly? if press half and ligthly, it will not take the picture.

When you have using macro mode, you need to disable Flash mode.macro mode will show picture(flower) and avoid hand shake during this mode.
When you take in 10cm range in macro mode, it will take more longer time to autofoucus, you need to be freeze a while until it take the picture. The best it, try to take picture in without you inhale. it will avoid you from shage

Try using in different DIS mode when you using the flash.
In some mode, it will have twice flash. First flash it will check the condition and wait until second flash and dont move your camera.

Some condition, you will get the picture is white, it because from dust atmhospheric that we cant see. it reflective to ur flash.for the best picture, you need to try in different mode and different condition. that will make you as proffesional. this camera have many mode that you need to understand. training urself to be perfect. download manual and test your camera

When using flash it takes a couple of seconds to take photo hence picture is blurred

It's probably because you have enabled the slow sync flash mode.
To switch to the normal flash mode (auto flash) press your left directional key until the flash mode indicator near the top left of the screen (an icon with a "lightning" symbol) changes to an icon with a letter A next to the lightning symbol.
The slow sync flash mode is different from the normal flash mode; in this mode, the camera exposure duration can be a few seconds and the flash actuates at the beginning of the exposure. Although this is useful for certain photography techniques, you have to enable normal flash mode to take pictures in the normal way without blur.

Pentax istd built in flash goes off when taking picture but picture is underexposed but if I use a different flash in manual mode the camera works ok

What distance are the subjects when using the built-in flash?

The built-in flash is optimized for use between 0.7m (2.3ft) and 4m (13ft).

You could also try adjusting the ISO setting (higher ISO requires less light) or adjusting the EV value to a positive number to increase the exposure.

you may need to try using a different flash, if you click the flash button various times you may notice that there is different flash options.

DMC-FX01 Flash Does Not Work

In what mode are you trying to take photos? The flash will not work in certain modes (see the manual), for example the night mode. Or you accidentialy turned on sequential/burst mode (this is mode where camera takes more pictures on one shutter button press). Flash cannot be used in this mode also. I don't have FX01, but on FZ8 the camera will show flash icon in red, but will take the picture anyway without flash being triggered. The second problems seems like enabled power-saving mode, but those 5 seconds are too short for this. But anyway you can check in SETUP menu the settings for power-save. Also maybe the flash is broken and camera noticed it... I don't think this could be a software problem. Either problem with the flash, but more probably just setting of wrong mode.
