My camera won't take pictures with the flash on and when i try the red light just blinks. only takes pictures with no flash.

When your flash light (I mean the part that gives the flash) or the capacitor that stores the power for the flash are defect. you won't see a flash. When a red light comes on, when actually the flash should fire, the most likely the capacitor is defect. The electronics sensed it could not reach the voltage needed to fire the flash.
It also could mean your battery can't deliver enough to charge the capacitor, but is that was the case the battery indicator should tell you.

Blurred pictures, and Red hand Flashing warning

The red hand is warning you that the shutter speed is too slow for handholding. Your pictures are coming out blurred because the camera is moving during the relatively lengthy exposure.

Put the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, and/or use the flash.

Nikon coolpix s210 Not taking pictures

It sounds like you should try a new set of batteries in the camera. I have a similar camera and the flash is the first to go when the batteries are dying.

I hope this helps,

  2. Is the flash poping up?
  3. Has it worked before?

Turning off after taking a picture with a flash

Sorry but that is just because the flash is recharging.. It turns the screen off so it can charge the flash faster.. No worries it works fine :)
