    Flash stopped working on SD550. Sometimes the message comes that the battery need to be replaced. But even with the freshly charged (old) battery, there is no flash.

    Olympus FE-130. The flash will not work despite being set to fire and the flash set mark displaying on the screen. I have tried out all the various modes for the falsh and none will allow the flash to fire. I have tried the camera at a number of different light levels but this does not work either.

Here is the solution: Flash cannot be used in burst mode! You must set the camera to single shot mode!

This really surprised me, since in my old Konica Minolta the burst mode did not prevent flash, it just took a single picture if the flash was activated or multiple pictures when the flash was disabled.

My D40 rolled off my couch and broke my flash. After watching a video, I opened up the flash and got the flash working, but now the flash won't pop up... After messing with multiple pieces (while reading...

Check to make sure the flash up switch on the side of the flash (the switch you see where the wires go through when you remove the flash top) is not under the activation rod on the pivot, the pivot is not pushed in, or the activation rod is not broken off. The switch should close when the flash goes up and be open when it is down. A lot of times you see the top contact stuck under the activation rod. Also check the continuity of the two thin switch wires as sometimes they are borken inside by impact

Turn signals won't work, then I use the 4 ways and the turn signals will work for a short while. I have to repeat this procedure about 3 times and then I am good to go for about a week.

First off make sure you dont have a faulty bulb check to see they are all good. you should know this by activating your turn signal if the indicator turns on but does not flash and you dont hear the clicking sound then you have a bad bulb. If all your bulbs are good then try changing out your flasher it may be faulty.

Sony cyber shot camera 2004

Perhaps you have set the camera to a record mode other than Auto. Twilight mode for example, does not activate flash so as to set the camera on a tripod and shoot dark landscapes.

Check your camera record mode, and use auto or portrait mode, which they usually activate flash when there is not enough light.

Hope this helps.
