How to turn off flash?

IS there a way to turn of the flash in the manual modes?  When I press the flash button is doesn't seem to turn of the flash....the only way I can see is to take photos in the NoFlash setting, but it won't let me adjust the ISO setting when I am in this mode....
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: how to turn off flash?

The pop up button (over on the side near the front of the flash) only works in certain modes: P, Av, Tv or M modes. Make sure you have one of those modes set then you control the flash by pressing the button.
In other modes the flash pops up automatically in green box, Portrait, Close Up, and Night Portrait modes. The flash is off in Landscape, Sports, and No Flash modes.

Re: how to turn off flash?

That is a manual way of overriding the flash but you should still be able to deselect the flash by cycling through the flash selections.  let me know if you have further questions or problems with this and i will research if further for you

How do i get the flashed turned on

First, check to make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the SD card slot. Slide the switch away from the flower toward the mountain to take it out of macro mode. The flash won't fire in macro mode.

Then, if the flash still doesn't fire, take a look at the flash mode. Press the up-arrow button to bring up the flash menu. If it's currently set in the lightning-bolt-in-a-circle-with-a-slash-through-it symbol, you've got the flash turned off. Set it to the lightning-bolt-and-"A" for automatic flash or the lightning-bolt for forced flash.

If the flash still doesn't fire, then it's broken.

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.

Red dye reduction

You can find your manual

You find how to disable red eye function on page no: 63 in that manual.

For quick reference i am giving the details briefly,

The flash modes are as follows:


Automatically fires in low-light and backlight conditions.


This mode significantly reduces
the phenomenon of “red-eye”
by emitting about 10 preflashes
before firing the regular
flash. This mode works the
same as the auto-flash except
for the pre-flashes.

To change between flash modes:

1 Press the (flash) switch.
● The flash pops up.
2 Press the / (flash mode) button
repeatedly until the desired flash mode
indication appears.
● The flash mode changes ,
● If / is not pressed within 2 seconds after the selection screen is
displayed, the selection screen disappears.
● To de-activate the flash (Flash Off mode ), push the flash back into the
3 Press the shutter button halfway.
● When the flash is ready to fire, the
(flash stand-by) mark lights.
4 Press the shutter button all the way.
● The flash fires.

Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Good Luck.

Please help!

Try going into the M(anual) mode on the selector dial and then turn off the flash (press the right side of the controller button until you see the lightning bolt with a bar through it). The macro shooting option should still be available in the manual mode.

Flash is not working ??????????????

This camera has four flash modes and each time you press the button the mode changes. As you press the button you should see the indictor in the upper left side of the screen.
1. In automatic flash, the camera will decide if you need flash or not. This mode does not have any indicator on the screen
2. Forced flash, this will cause the flash to be constantly on. The indicator looks (kind of) like a lightning bolt.
3. Slow Syncro, this mode slightly delays the flash and is used to lighten up the background more the foreground. The indicator looks like the lightning bolt with SL next to it.
4. No flash, this will turn off the flash. The indicator looks like a lightning bolt enclosed by a circle with a diagonal line through the lightning bolt. (similar to a no parking sign).
If you don’t see the indictor changing on the screen the switch behind the button is malfunctioning.

Disabling Auto Flash

I found the answer and fixed my flash. Look on

This will describe how, if you have been using a speedlite alot, than the little tab under the shutter release side of the hot shoe can get bent down thus constantly pressing down (toward the bottom of the camera) the small button which deactivates the pop-up1.gif flash even when the speedlite is not attached. Just bend the tab up a little with a jewler's screwdriver, turn the camera off and on and voila!! Fixed!!! Dan describes pushing the tab down, but on the xti, the tab needs to be bent up to release the flash deactivation switch and fix the problem. Thanks to Dan D on photonet for saving me a service call.
