Re: Flash can not be turned on

I had the exact same problem as Dude2891 and it took me ages to work out what was wrong. The problem turned out to be that when I first got it and was playing with the menus, I managed to put it on burst mode, and in burst mode flash is automatically set to off. So you need to turn it on, press menu bottom left and scroll to REC mode (the first option) and then check that you're on Normal not Burst. That fixed it for me! See also Sony's tips at

Hope that works guys, let me know how you get on.

How do i turn off the flash on the cannon power shot a530

Press the Flash button (the top part of the circular "joystick" button, marked with a lightning bolt) to cycle through the options. You can choose from Auto with red-eye reduction, Auto, Flash on with red-eye reduction, Flash on, and Flash off. You want the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it.

Can't turn the flash on, it's set to "off" on default; and when i try to turn it on there is no "on" option in the flash menu, just "off"

check that you do not have the setting on burst as it will not be able to flash in this mode. when looking atthe screen about to take a photo, select menu, the first thingthat comes up is the mode, if it is in burst change in to normal and your camera should now have the option for flash or auto again :) good luck

My flash won't turn on! When I go to the flash icon to turn it on, the flash option isn't even there!

Mine was doing the same thing but I noticed (after playing around with it for a while) that I had the "REC Mode" on BURST and not NORMAL. When I set it back to NORMAL the FLASH options returned. Select MENU on the main display and the first option will look like a picture frame or multiple picture frames. You want it to look like the single picture frame for the FLASH option to be available.

How can I turn the flash off on a cannon power shot a400 camera

Your menus will have options to be able to turn off the flash in certain modes.
The camera also has external buttons which will turn the flash on or off. Read your user manual.
The button which has the SET inside has four selectors. The right selector has a flash on/off button to turn the flash on or off. The flash usually will flash when set to flash all the time and not in AUTO mode. The AUTO mode may not allow you to turn off the flash. You probably have to choose another mode to allow the flash to be turned off.

Canon IXUS 80IS - I can't turn the flash on

When this camera is in "Auto" mode the only flash functions available are Auto or Flash Off - in order to get the option of "Flash On" for all pictures you have to put the camera in "Manual" mode - to do this:

-Set the mode switch to the camera icon
-Press the "Func./Set" button
-Use the left or right arrow keys to set it to Manual mode (its icon looks like half a camera with the letter M beside it)
-Press the "Func./Set" button again to save your mode change.

Now when you press the flash button and cycle through the choices there will also be a "Flash On" option.

Hello i want to turn the auto flash off

Press the up arrow on the back of the camera - that seems to be the flash mode setting - select which flash mode you want - you have to hit the down arrow once to see the flash off option which is a picture of a flash symbol in a circle. Then press ok. The flash should now not fire.

hi there
if you look at the top navigation button you will see a lightening bolt just press the key underneath it while in camera mode and the screen will show several options one of which is a bolt with a line through it, select this option and no more flash.reverse the process to turn it back on.
hope this helps

Try initialising the camera (settings menu) - the flash options came back on mine, and the flash worked again.

Flash - Why won't it turn on?

Do some of the following things.
Reset the internal menu settings, then reset all the options you want your way.

Make sure the flash is on in the picture taking option you choose.
When you have enough light, the flash usually will not go on, and if it is on the amount of light can force the flash off...'
