    I have the same problems with my flash, for any mode where a flash is required, there is a little red blinking light and I can not take a picture in any flash mode. I have not been able to clear any error within the camera by removing the batteries.

The Flash is stuck to off on my Polaroid x800 camera. How do i fix this?

If Polaroid x800 flash doesn't turn ON - that is because of the picture mode (a plastic switch on one of the sides). In my case: mountains symbol - flash turns ON/OFF, flower symbol - flash is stuck to OFF.

The flash on my polaroid t831 is too bright. it

set auto white balance, or use a small paper in front of camera, seems like your camera is defective.

Flash will not work properly

It may be the batteries, If using rechargeables one may be weak. try new batteries and check the battery contacts are all clean use a pencil eraser or a cotton bud (Qtip) moistened (not wet) with isopropyl alcohol (tape/stylus cleaning fluid)
If that dose'nt help Im sorry to say the flash is probably faulty as it would appear to be trying to charge but not reaching a full charge
