Re: activate flash

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

My flash dont work

look to see if the flash is turned on by conventional means such as through the setup or switch in the right position to activate the flash. This all depends on the make and model of the camera.

I am using dsc w 120 dgital camera now the flash is not working so i need to be working please tell ur idea

HI maxellbati,

Sometimes the flash does not work because of the manipulation in the settings,
Therefore , All you need to do is made sure that the NO FLASH mode is not activated ,

If it's activated then probably you would find an icon of flash with a cross line over it in the LCD.

Please change the mode to auto or flash every time and then the problem should be solved.

If not then you would have to get the flash replaced.

Let me know in case you have any queries.

Hope this helps ..:)

I dont know how to activate the flash

Make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB socket. This switch needs to be in the mountain position, not the flower position.
Also bear in mind that the flash is for still photos only, not for videos.

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.
