Ok

Its not clear how you are using the camera.
Check the settings on the left. Some settings (Landscape for example will not allow the use of flash)
Set the camera to P,S,A OR M and it will. In Auto it will pop up if it needs it. It It still won't work Look at the menu settings for Flash Mode two settings 1) TTL and the other Manual. I have my D50 set to TTL using the built in flash and manual when using an external flash mounted in the shoe.

Hope this helps

How do I stop down my flash on my olympus E410 so its not so bright when I use it.


I just saw a picture of your Olympus and it is clear it isn't fitted with a flash but a variety of flashguns can be fitted to the hotshoe bracket.
A standard flashgun has a fixed flash and must be diffused or bounced if it needs to be toned down.
There are programmable flashes available but these are more suitable for manual cameras.
A model-specific computerised flashgun can communicate through multiple contacts of the hot shoe with a computerised camera and should provide the flash duration/intensity to suit the camera's settings.

Maybe your flash isn't fully compatible with the camera.

The internal flash on my canon eos 60d camera won't pop up


On the hot shoe when you fit a flashgun it pushes two tabs down to disengage the pop-up flash some times the tabs don't fully return after flashgun removal

How TO RESET flashgun ex 11m7unk


There is no "official" reset option for a 430EX flash. Removing the batteries, discharging any remaining flash and leaving it overnight should clear any issues. If you continue having issues try the flash on another camera to be sure it's not the camera settings you're having an issue with and not the flash. If it is the camera, resetting it to factory defaults through the menu might help.

Use of Canon 60D's wireless function to control power on Canon 430EXII, being operated manually.


Your flash will fire optically. This is wireless but not radio.On the flashgun window move through the options until you see all of these in the window :- Flashing M, MZoom (24mm)
(the power output eg) 1/4
Flashgun icon CH1 Slave (blank)
The front panel should show a flashing red light. This means it is ready to receive the light signal from your onboard flash. From the camera menu select the in built flash control.
Set it to - Built-in flash - CustWireless
Flash mode - Manual flash
Wireless func - (single flashgun icon)
Channel- 1 ch
firing group - (flashgun icon)All
(flashgun icon) flashoutput - 1/64

selecting 1/64 should be sufficient to trigger the flash gun but not light the scene.

Manually pop up the onboard flash

In the view finder you'll see a number of green bars when half pressing the shutter and wait for them to go down to one which mean the camera and flashgun are communicating, fully press to take the shot and the flash (off camera) should fire.

The M is for flashbulbs, the X is for electronic flash. Sorry, but it won't sync with flash powder :-)

I don't see a manual for the FT, but I found manuals for the FTN and the FT2 at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm

What flash will fit the V3800N SLR film camera?


Pretty much any flashgun with a standard hotshoe. The 3800N is extremely basic and does not take advantage of any dedicated flash functions, so you'll find loads of cheap or even free basic manual or auto-exposure flashguns on auction websites and also on FreeCycle.

I'd suggest a basic manual flashgun as you then fully control it. Automatic flashguns try to second guess what it is you're photographing so can often over-expose the subject. You also learn more using a basic manual flash which is probably the only reason to buy a 3800N in the first place.

My flash won't charge. the yellow charge light won't go off when the camera is charged. The flash will pop open but won't flash. I have purchased and installed a new battery but it didn't solve the...


Either the internal thyristor charging circuit has failed or the flash capacitor is unserviceable.

Neither fault is worth repairing. Buy a small auto-exposure flashgun and use it in the hotshoe; they're dirt cheap and there are plenty of used ones for free if you ask on FreeCycle.

You'll need to go into the DSC-V1 menus to enable the hot shoe on the top plate of the camera and you'll find that even the smallest and least specified flashgun will give better results, but try to get one with at least two aperture settings within the range f2.8 to f8. Anything outside that range is useless to you as that's the entire aperture range on the DSC-V1. You'll also need to ensure that when taking photos, the camera is set to the same aperture as the flashgun. To do this set the camera mode switch to "A" for aperture priority mode and use the thumbwheel to select the correct aperture, the camera will choose the appropriate shutter speed. You can also use "M" for manual mode in which you set both the aperture and choose the shutter speed. At night, choose 1/60 but the actual exposure will be measured in the thousandths of seconds in which the flash is illuminated.

If you're rich or lucky you'll get a Sony HVL-F32X flashgun; it dwarfs the camera and is very powerful but everything is fully automatic with no manual overrides. For this flashgun, the hotshoe menu setting must be "OFF".

Vivitar 636 and Nikon D200


You won't be able to use older TTL flashguns with the D200. Since the D70, all nikon cameras have used "iTTL", and earlier DSLRs (eg D100) have used "D-TTL". Neither of these are compatible with the older TTL system used on film cameras. The newer SB-400/600/800 flashguns are all ok, and Sigma and Metz both produce iTTL compatible flashguns. The new flashguns will work on old cameras but not vice versa.

I know this is annoying, but there were good technical reasons why Nikon changed the TTL standards.

If the 636 has an A mode (non TTL) this should work ok, otherwise it will only work in manual (if it has a manual mode).
