Everytime I try to take a picture in low light, I get the symbol flashing which tells me to shut off my flash. So I shut it off and then I can take the picture and then the pic turns out terrible because the flash should have been on.

Sometimes the flash will be disabled when the battery is low in order to save power. Charge the battery fully and start up the camera.
At the top of the display, second from the left, you should see a symbol that contains a lightning bolt. This indicates the flash setting. Press the right side of the circular button until the symbol matches the picture on that button (just the bolt, no eye or A or anything). Now the flash is set to forced on. Try taking a picture.
If the flash still is not going off, something is broken. Call Polaroid. They may replace it if you have a receipt (as long as it's not refurbished or over a year old).
The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready. Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.
There is a "quick" button located on the back of the camera just for flashes. It is the first button to the right of the power button and it looks like a crooked lightning bolt arrow that points down. If you are in any picture taking mode, push this button and it will toggle you through each flash option, auto, red eye (eyeball symbol), flash (same symbol as the button, this mode will make the flash work everytime you take a picture), red eye and flash, and no flash (careful, in this mode you have to allow for the camera to focus, the lens will stay open a long time in a dark atmosphere -- if you don't hold the camera still you will get a blurry picture).
Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).
The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.
