Make sure it is not in any auto mode. You can set that with a few options. You can also try to reset all the settings, then go back and set what you want.

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..


The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

Instructions:
1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Hello I have a nikon coolpix L20 and the flash is not working we can heard like if the camera sent the order to the flash but nothing is happening is this something in camera configuration or should I...


How long did you have this camera already? The HID (high - intensity discharge) bulb might have been busted already and needs replacement. It shouldn't cost that much so have he flash bulb replaced from your local camera shop. =)

Can't get flash to work. I push the icon for the flash but nothing happens?


There are some modes in which the flash will not fire (like sports or fireworks). Also, the flash will not work for videos, only for still photos.

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.

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,

Nikon CoolPix Flash Problem


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.

Flash for Coolpix L6 Digital


You can try to reset all of the internal settings. This has worked for me with a digital camera.
It would be good here to know what kind of camera we are working with.

Make sure you do not have any of the settings in the camera set to turn off the flash...for instance setting it at mountains or most any outside setting may not allow the flash to work. Some cameras will allow you to override the setting internally.
If the flash does not work at all, then repairs will be needed.
