Can the camera sp-800UZ take rapid shots pics with flash going off every pic taken

In short, no. As with all flashes, the capacitor takes a while to recharge (via power from the low voltage battery which is amplified to many thousands of volts in the capacitor) between each shot. How long exactly depends upon how far it's discharged each time, so for close-up objects which fill the frame and need little flash, the discharge will be relatively low and you may get a few shots off in a row, and for distant objects using a more powerful flash discharge it may totally discharge with each shot.

The bigger and more powerful the flash unit, the better it will perform in that respect which is why professional external flashguns are big, bulky and cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. A built-in flash such as on your camera is a compromise solution and is not intended for heavy use. More advanced cameras may have their own built in pop up flashes to take close up snapshots, but for anything else have connectors to enable the use of more powerful external units.

D80 won't take pictures sometimes unless I turn it off and on

It may be that you are shooting in a light level that is too low (indicator light) try upping the ISO and are you using the built-in flash or a separate flash?

Built-In Flash Not Working

Hi, I am certainly not an expert, however, I was having problems with that also. In addition, my viewfinder was almost black & white with a greenish tinge.

Come to find out there is a reset button inside where the battery is. You might try taking the battery out and leaving it out for 5 min. or so and see if this works. It fixed mine but not the screen. Then I tried the reset and that did not work. Then I took the battery out and then it worked!

When you reset the camera, you will have to re-enter your setting, ei, dates, etc.

Hope this helps.

D40X flash problems

As the manual warns, never operate the camera (or any device, in general) if you notice something like that. Remove the battery, and send your camera for service

One can only guess what was the source of the problem. Did you drop the camera, expose it to high temperatures (e.g. left it inside a car in 40 degrees Celsius) or expose it to torrential rain?

In any case, how long it will take to repair it (or, more likely, replace it) depends on your local Nikon service department.

Canon 20d flash

push the flash into its resting place with a little pressure, turn unit over, take an image requiring flash while pushing on the flash and then quickly release the flash.
something is likely broken and may clear out when camera in alternate position.
otherwise, off to service. don't force it.
good luck

Nikon D40X inbuilt flash

If it's withing 30 days, get it exchanged. I have a D70s and it's been working fine for me, maybe something with the D40x with other customers? Take it back to the store and let an "instructor" try it out to make sure it's not a setting.

It's great for the manufacturer to know about any problems so they can get a good sample of problems to help many people. Good luck.
