I have a skyforce gravity r/c helicopeter trying to fix for my son.When it is plugged in the charger, it just blinks green light. Have it over night, and it is still just blinking green. Have lost remote....


It means that the charged battery is full. Some chargers have a steady glow, others have a flashing light to show that the battery is charged. When you run the helicopter, is the battery fully charged, does the helicopter blades spin flat out? If so, the battery is charged and the flashing light indicates the battery is charged. If the battery isn't charged or the blades don't spin enough to lift the helicopter, or fly for some time, then the battery isn't charged and the charger may be faulty. Take it to a hobby shop to see where the problem lies, the charger and its blinking light, or the battery.

Both auto check and test charge lights blink simultaneously and continually. No flash can be fired.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

I have a Olympus FE-100. Everything works fine but it will not flash. Blinking red light. Blinking red lightening bolt. I have tried everything.


hi
blinking red light means camera is trying to charge flash circuitry. if you cancel flash mode, you can use taking picture. But if you want to repair, your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 75 depend on what they really want to charge.
Thanks and best regard!

My camera's flash is not working and the icon of flash keeps blinking every time i try to click a photo. Also the camera works fine when I switch off the flash.


If its blinking then it meas that it is not adequately charged. The flash indicator will turn to steady orange if its properly charged.

Was working fine, then flash stopped working. Now it has a "flash charging" button blinking and it won't even take a picture. Been blinking since yesterday?? Charged my battery and still the same. HELP!


This does sound like a battery problem. Flash needs a stonger battery than just snapping in sunlight. Rechargeable batteries have a finite life and do eventually lose capacity and even fail.

Canon flash does not work


The flash has to charge in between shots, so if you are not waiting long enough it won't charge and wont take the shot.

If you are waiting, Im not really sure...

When ever i take a picture, the orange light turns on acting like its going to take a picutre but it doesnt. When i take it off flash, it takes the picture.


The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready.
Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.

Kodak Easyshare Z760 orange light flashing


The flash does not charge separate from the rest of the camera. Try cleaning the flash sensor on the front of the camera or the flash led may be bad.

Secondly, this light functions as a flash sensor which is trying to tell you that you need to use a flash although you may have the flash manually turned off. looks like a bolt of lightning with a circle/slash through it.
