Question about Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera

Samsung S730 No Flash

The camera will not flash. I have taken pictures in the dark and put the flash on, but the camera will not flash. I have waited until the red light on the flash symbol stopped flashing, but it just takes a really dark picture. I'm really stuck. I don't know what else to do.

    To fix my camera, I eventually just had to take it back to the store and get a new one. This new one now works so I don't really know how else you can fix the problem. It must just be a defect in some cameras.

Can bulbs go in cameraz as evritime i use my flash the picture is dark and fuzzy

The capacitor that charges up can weaken, in time, but usually the zenon bulb will either work or it won't. You may be having a timing problem with the flash and the shutter. Also, some cameras have trouble focusing in dark scenes, also, and that may be happening in your case, in addition to the problem you're having. You can try other scene settings, to see if the camera operates better in those modes. Otherwise, you will have to have a repair shop check it out. Make sure you get an estimate before you do, since repair can be expensive. Wish there was an easy answer and fix to this problem, but there just isn't.

Samsung S730 flash quit working

If you are good with a screwdriver and soldering iron there is a common issue on this model with dry solder joins to the flash circuit.

Help me if you can, ASAP. Please.

The flashing eye has to do with the camera's red-eye reduction feature. Check to see that the little window below the flash on the front of the camera is clean, and make sure the lens is spotless. If that doesn't work, try de-activating the red-eye reduction using the camera menu.

My S730 camera flash will not work it will take pictures without a flash though. Can the flash bulb be replaced or is it cheaper to just get a new one?


Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem

Your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

You may have blown the bulb. Im not sure how to get that fixed. It would probably just be cheaper to buy a new one.
