    Yes I am getting images. The camera works fine without the flash but I need the flash to work as well. Could this be a wrong setting? I have tried everything. I was in the middle of shooting a wedding when it stopped working.

    This sounds like a shutter problem. Are you getting any images at all?

Well, you are not going to like my answer. The troubleshooting guide for the D70 says it could be 1 of several PCBs (printed circuit board) being faulty or the connecting FPCs (flexible printed circuit).

You'll need to locate a local repair person or use the reapir service search here on Fixya. Nikon USA repairs will be $$$$

Internal flash won't work anymore


Try a factory reset. In the menu go to the third spanner and select 'Clear settings'

To pop up the flash put the camera in manual mode (M) and press the flash release button and it should pop up.

Bought a Nikon Coolpix S3000 (orange) for my daughter after Christmas. It just stopped working one day; wouldn't charge, no lights or come on. The battery it came with is a Nikon lithium ION Battery...


Read page 16 of the manual. Do not use any other charger with this camera. Are you sure you have the battery inserted correctly? When trying to charge, does the green light blink? If so, when it stops blinking and turns off, the battery should be fully charged. Do not attempt to turn the camera on while the charger is trying to charge the battery.

Nikon d90 builtin flash not working


How long have you had the camera? It might still be covered by warranty. If it is covered by warranty, then contact Nikon to find the warranty fixing instructions for your area. If it is not in warranty, then getting it fixed might be as easy as taking it to your local camera store (not Best Buy/chain stores) Local camera shops usually can fix these issues. Prices can vary depending on your area.
If this isn't an option, getting an external flash head might be your best option. I know a Nikon sb80 is relatively cheap, but a similar alternative to the on camera flash head.

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes...


I don't know if this will help and this post is two months old. The camera store may be right that the synchronization is the issue which tends me to point a finger at the external flash. There are at least three different flash units that will flash when the picture is made but only one type will sync with the camera. A digital flash unit is different from a film flash so a Canon EX type is required to sync with Canon TTL or TTL II digital cameras. An EZ will flash but it's off a bit, so I can only assume that your Promaster and Canon flash units are for film cameras. Okay and another thing that could be throwing things off a bit is the camera may have been programed in Custom Functions to use "Second Curtain" or "Rear Curtain". Just seams to me if the built in flash works then it's the external units at fault.

Sb600 flash has no communication with d70 camera


Have you tried using the wireless mode? Even if there is a problem with the hot shoe interface, it might still work using the wireless mode. To do this you have to set both the camera and the flash. On the D70, under the menu with the icon that looks like a pencil, select Flash Mode|Commander Mode|TTL|OK. On the flash, hold down the Zoom and [-] buttons to get the CSM menu. When you see the zigzag arrow, push the Mode button to turn on the wireless mode.You may have to use the [+] or [-] buttons to cycle through the menu to find the zigzag arrow.

Now you should be able to use the flash detached from the camera. Just pop up the D70 flash, which will tell the SB-600 what to do via light pulses. There are other settings that may be required (channel and group settings must match between camera and flash) and be careful not to block the light sensor on the side of the SB-600. If the wireless system is still working, you may find you like it better than hot shoe operation.

Flash not working


Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.

My Rebel T1i's built in flash stopped working after I used a 580EX external flash on it. It won't even show up on the LCD screen.


Really? the best solution available is to take the top of your camera off?
i don't think so.
Here's a very simple solution I found to get the flash to pop up without destroying your camera.

the person suggests using a fingernail. (s)he must have long fingernails. I had to use a piece of paper folded in half. Swipe the paper from back to front, as in, from the eyepiece side towards the lens side.
