Flash not working

Assuming that you haven't put the camera into a mode in which flash is disabled, either the charging capacitor or flash bulb is defective. It will have to be serviced so the appropriate part can be replaced.

Manual exposure settings

On page 17 you can read about manual mode. Just turn the mode select button to the M. But I think you want to choose Bulb. You press once to open the shutter and after some time you press the button for the second time to close the button. But that is not possible with this camera.
It has shutter times from 8 seconds to 1/2000 of a second in Manual mode. and 4 seconds in fire works mode.

How i take photo in night ! my problem is for clearity

I have a sample image here, I'm not sure how it will load it's a crop from a full frame.
I've read into your camera specifications and have found that 15 seconds is the longest shutter speed you can use, I didn't find a "Bulb" for shutter speed and this will limit your abilities to make clear "clarity" night photographs to work within the 15 seconds you will need to increase the ISO, increasing the ISO will introduce a grain effect and the clarity will fall off.
I'll give you a starting point some things you won't like what I'm saying but I've been doing this since 1983. You will need a sturdy tripod. Shut the IS off. See if you can focus on your subject and compose. If you can't auto focus (lack of light or contrast) switch to manual focus, focus is critical if you can't obtain this the shot will be useless. After focus compose your scene set your camera at ISO 100, manual mode F11 adjust the shutter speed to give proper exposure increase ISO by one stop and decrease F stop by one (F8) check exposure once you have the exposure recompose your scene. Make sure the camera is in manual focus, IS (image stabilization) is off, set self timer to 2 second delay, check your scene again and release the shutter and don't touch the camera again until the exposure is complete. There is a whole lot more to this and you are limited because of the lack of the bulb feature or a shutter speed greater then 15 seconds.

Hi, I would like to take a timed exposer, maybe for as long as five minutes......Thanks

In manual exposure mode, set the shutter speed to bulb. This is the next slower shutter speed past thirty seconds. The bulb setting will keep the shutter open as long as you keep the shutter button pressed.

It's easier if you have a remote control. With the ML-L3 wireless remote, you can press the button once to open the shutter and again to close it. Most wired remotes have a lock so you can lock the shutter open until you want to close it.

In manual mode cannot set shutter speed to

The "--" is the equivalent of the bulb setting with the remote control. The first press of the button opens the shutter and starts the exposure. Another press of the button closes the shutter and ends the exposure. This is so you don't have to hold the button down and risk a bird flying through the beam (and to conserve battery power).

Shutter problem

30 seconds is the maximum setting for the D50. Anything greater than this you can easily time with a watch using the 'bulb' setting.  Most SLR's are like this.

First of all, shooting sports in manual is about the most difficult thing you could ever choose to do. I use the Av (Aperture Priority) and let the camera set the shutter speed. Just set your aperture wide open and fire away. That way, you're not constantly fighting with settings missing great shots. Also, in manual, BULB is simply one of the settings and can't be turned off. It can only be 'not selected'.

Best of luck!

I assume you mean the 'bulb' setting. The selector dial needs to be set to 'M'. By using the wheel under the release button, rotate it counter-clockwise till you see 'bulb'

Bulb is a setting on the camera which allows you to keep the shutter open as long as you want, all you need to do is keep you finger depressed on the the trigger button.
