Question about Nikon COOLPIX L10 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Coolpix L10 won't flash in flash or auto flash mode

When my camera is set to flash or auto flash mode it will not flash. This is an intermittant problem that I thought was associated with low batteries but I replace the batteries with brand new ones and it still won't flash. It is frustrating because it is intermittant and I can't be certain if it's going to flash or not when I need it most. I have never dropped the camera or done any damage to it to cause the problem so it seems like a hardware issue.

If you have the BSS (Best Shot Selector - page 79 of manual)...turn on then the flash or auto flash is over ridden and will not work. This happen as the BSS feature allows you to hold down the shutter release button (one used to take pictures) and continually take pictres, compare them and only keep the best one. The need to take rapids shots can not wait for a flash to recharge and go off so the flash is disabled... among other things but is all explained in the manual. I hope this is all your problem is and not something worse.

Shutting off flash


Yes, but not in the Auto mode, where the camera decides whether or not it needs the flash. Switch to the P mode, which works like Auto except you have control over the flash, exposure, and other factors. See pages 26 and 42 of this manual.

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..


The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

Instructions:
1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

How do i turn on the flash for the nikon coolpix L10


Click on the top of the dial to the right of the screen (where it shows a flash of light logo). This should allow you to select one of the different flash settings - always on, always off, auto etc. Study the manual about what each of those mean for more details.

It will not flash and it has only taken about twenty pics before the problem started


It may be a problem with a low battery. Charging up the flash uses more power than just taking pictures.

Otherwise, you may have changed the flash mode inadvertantly. Some cameras only have Auto and Off (you don't say what camera you have). Others have a forced mode that flashes every time. In Auto mode, the camera will only flash when it decides the light is low.

My canon SX110 IS camera has recently started displaying 'battery is low' and flashing the red low battery sign even a few minutes after putting in brand new batteries. I have tried with several new sets...


I had the same problem with new batteries reporting as "low" and instant shut-off. After I found that it would stay on when plugged into USB, I suspected a firmware bug in the camera (I am a computer engineer). So I thought "how can I fool it?" I then found that it would stay on if you power it up with the rotary dial BETWEEN the video and manual ("M") setting -- in the "illegal" position. The after it's on, every mode works!

Sometimes when i try to take a picture - the camera won't let me - a flashing hand appears on the display screen and it won't let me take the picture - i have the camera on auto adjustment - i just want to...


If it is set to auto then about all I can think of is low light pictures and you may have the flash disabled or the battery level is too low to power the flash .

Try taking a picture in bright sunlight and see if it behaves. I can't recal if that model disables and enables the flash with the menu or if it has a button on the case looks like a lightening flash. And don't forget to charge your battery
