SOURCE: Sony DSC-W90 digital camera: Flash will

Hi,
As you have already tried to re-initializing the camera, have you tried to do POWER RESET? Now a day camera have removable built-in rechargeable battery (Button sized lithium battery) for retaining date, time & other settings, so you need to reset it since it is built-in not removable.

  • Reset by locating RESET button on your camera, Press it by pointed object like ball pen etc & hold it for 2-3 secounds after that release the RESET button.
or...
  • Turn OFF the camera, Remove battery pack, Remove button sized lithium battery, leave the camera for 1-2 Minutes then re-insert (place) lithium battery & battery pack then TURN ON the camera.
I hope this will solve your problem otherwise your camera need to be repaired by Service Center.

Thanks for using fixya,
Good luck and have a nice day.

My camera s flasnmode did not work it happaned when my camers power on for a long time how to fix that flash mode ?


Hi,

If the built in flash does not function, then the Camera flash may be turned off or ot is set to Auto and will only flash when the taking pictures in poorly lit environments. To turn on the flash so it works regardless of the lighting conditions, press the flash button on the Camera until the Forced Flash icon appears on the LCD screen. The flash button on the Camera has a lightning bolt symbol on it.
If the Forced Flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting it enabled, the flash will still not work in the following settings.
When shooting movies.
When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode.
When shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode.
Shooting with the Fireworks or high sensitivity mode. (ISO)
Following the above steps should resolve the issue. However, if the issue persists try resetting the Camera back to factory settings and specifications.
Try power resetting the Camera to check if it resolves the issue. To power reset the Camera, turn off the Camera and remove the battery pack. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Remain the Camera without power for 60 seconds and reinsert the battery.
If the issue persists, try Initializing the Camera. The Initialize option can be done only if the Menu of the Camera is accessible. To access Initialize select MENU-->SETUP-->SETUP 1-->INITIALIZE-->OK.
This should resolve the issue.

My auto built in flash won't open on my canon 30D


Hi,
The built in flash will (or should) pop up automatically if you are in the basic zones and the camera detects a slow shutter speed. If you are on a creative zone you need to manually push the button on the front of the camera it's a little button with a lightning bolt beside it. The flash will pop up take a few seconds to charge and you are on your way to flash photography. Two other things the internal flash will not pop up if you have another flash or accessory mounted in the camera hot shoe. When the flash is ready you should see in the viewfinder a green lightning bolt that telly you the flash is charged and ready for use.

I want the camera to flash when there is a light background, but not enough light on the subject. can i force a flash? Jim


Yes.

Press the flash button (the lightning bolt symbol on the up-arrow) to cycle through the settings. It's probably on Auto (lightning bolt with the letter "A"). Switch to On (lightning bolt).

Don't forget to switch back when you're done, or you'll always get the flash.

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.

I cannot get the flash to work???


the flash is a pop-up mecanizem. on the left side by the neck strap ring, theres a little button. that button should pop the flash up. and there ya go. on some settings the flash doesnt work even with the flash up. on the screen, when its on theres a little lighting bolt, when theres a line through the lightning bolt, that means flash is off, when you have it on the AUTO setting and its fairly dark out, and the flash is up, it should automatically be on. anytime you see that lightning bolt on your camera, its related to flash.

My flash bulb doesn't work, picture are dark


Do you have it turned off? Is there a picture of a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt until the screen shows a lightning bolt and an "a". Also, do you have the camera set on a scene mode such as night? The flash won't go off in some scene modes.

The flash will not work. I think something needs to be reset but not sure how to do that.


On the Navigaton direction button on the back of the camera the "Right direction" button has a little lightning bolt sign.

Repeatedly press this button while the camera is in picture taking mode to go through the flash settings sequence. (Watch the display while pressing this button)
Settings:
1 No Flash, Lightning bolt circled with slash across it.
2 Auto Flash, Lightning bolt with an "A" beside it.
3 Auto RedEye remover, includes an "eye" symbol.
4 Flash Always On, Lightning bolt alone.
5 Unknown, I don't know what the S mode is, I haven't used that one before (something to do with ISO virtual film speed setting).

Have fun.
Hope this was helpfull.308b6a1.jpg

Flash doesn't work


Check your flash setting (the button with a jagged lightning bolt) to make sure that you have the camera set for auto flash. Push the flash setting button until you see a bold A next to the lightning bolt. Sometimes the user inadvertently covers or even just touches the flash unit while powering on the camera, preventing the unit from popping up. Many Kodak cameras have a manual button (marked with the lightning bolt and the word OPEN) to pop the unit up so that it will work for you. Hope this helps.

Camera flash problem (Nikon)


ok,
try to set the menu item for Auto FP to ON (it works in P,S, A, and M modes only) that will activate the Highspeed Sync when you are using the SB-600 flash unit, set the flash mode so the indicator shows the off position (the line thru the lightning bolt symbol) on the top inidcator menu in the its next to the red eye redution icon that will keep the built-in flash off even if you need it in low light. hope that works for you.
