Send the camera in to Nikon for a replacement and write a nasty letter. I have the same problem and that's what I did. This is a wide-spread problem. Then once they send you a replacement (that works), quickly sell it on E-bay and buy yourself something that works!

My Nikon 8700 will not take any pictures..when I turn it on a message comes on the screen that "speedlight is in the closed position". When trying to take a picture, it buzzes,and an orange light flashes...


Please try resetting the camera to factory defaults first, but it sounds as though it may be a mechanical problem with the flash linkage. You can also use the flash selection on the side
of the lens housing and select "No Flash" to see if the camera will take pictures then. Since you have an attachment for an external flash, that might be an avenue to help you still use your camera. Getting it repaired would be expensive.

Simple problem: how di i turn the flash off on the nikon coolpix


Press the flash button (Up on the multiselector). This gets you a menu with five choices: Auto, Auto with red-eye reduction, Off, Fill flash, and Slow sync. Select the one you want (eventually, you're going to want to turn the flash back on) and press OK.

No camera flash


If the pictures are good, don't worry. The auto-mode will pop the flash when needed.

If the pictures are not good, check the flash mode and set it either auto or on or fill-in.

Flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12


I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

ok. there is a button on the side of the lens. it has an eyeball and a bolt of lightning, press that button and look in the top right corner of the screen. keep on pressing this button until you see; a lightning bolt with a circle with a line threw it. then "click". if that doesn't work switch your camera to manual and try this again.

Help flash Nixon coolpix L11


hello,

make sure when you press the round selection button on the back of the camera flash option, you press the ok in the center of the button on the back.

it will show brief yellow AUTO in the LCD screen upper right corner for a sec.

when you are going to take a picture holding the shutter button half way down, you should see up at the right corner outside of the LCD screen a red led flashing to indicate flash is ready.

one thing to try if this is not working, find the camera reset option in the menu. after doing this you may have to reset the date & time. it will bring the camera back to default settings

on the bad side if these dont work, possible flash circuit may have failed inside the camera.

good luck!

This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.
