    I had the same exact problem. Bought the camera in Jan 2008 and it stopped flashing while on holiday in Cozumel. My solution was to send it back and Nikon replaced it with a new camera. Cost me shipping. No explanation as to what happened.

Flash wont work


Although I strongly advice not to do it yourself, since you have a working camera, the worst you can do is not to finish the project and you have to do all the shooting with the LZ200.
You should have a look on the site ifixit dot com. There they not only promote the right to repair yourself the stuff you own, they also help with videos and manuals about how to open everything. Not sure the LZ100 is there to, but perhaps you are the one that will send in the video? That is also the place where you can buy tools you need I have a set my son has a set ;-). They also can send you spare parts.
About your camera, what you can expect: The snide won't look pretty.
On some places, the water has formed white spots (can be large) and because it was there long is will have oxidised some connections. You should clean everything without sharp tools and check the flash condensor for bad contacts, but also if it still has its capacity.
Every where you see white spots are possible bad contacts.
It is almost impossible to solder in a camera. so you have to be inventive. Look on ifixit

How do I turn on the flash? I tried to buy a really simple camera and there's just too much 'stuff' on it. everything seems to be ok, just can't figure out how to make the flash work. ...


Easy. When the camera is in normal shooting mode, press the up button (marked with the symbol of a lightning bolt) until the symbol of a crossed out lightning bolt near the top left of the screen turns to an uncrossed lightning bolt symbol. that's it.
extra tips-
  • if you keep pressing the up button until the lightning bolt symbol has a letter A next to it, the camera will fire the flash only when it thinks it is necessary. this will keep your flash from firing in bright light and therefore save battery charge.
  • remember when you flipped through your math textbook in the first grade and it had "too much stuff on it"? you think its too much because you aren't used to it. don't be afraid to mess with the settings in order to learn how to use your camera best; you can never permanently damage a camera in changing its settings. the worst that could ever happen is losing all the photos in memory. if anything else goes wrong, you can always return the settings to what they were when you bought the cam in a few button presses (refer to the manual).
good luck and happy shooting!

MY KODAK CAMERA WON'T FLASH WHEN IT IS SET ON THAT!


As a first step, make sure the batteries are fully charged and check in the Shooting menu if you have switched the flash to 'off' mode. Then check the shooting mode. In some shooting modes (like landscape), some cameras do not fire the flash. To check if the flash is working properly, change the mode to 'Night Portrait' and try to shoot. This mode is sure to fire the flash if everything is well with the camera. If still the flash is not working, take it to the nearest authorized service center.

Sounds like a software issue, try to upgrade or reload the firmware.

I hope it helps :)

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.

Flash Problem


Using the flash When shooting with the built-in flash, open the flash manually. The flash does not pop-up automatically. The flash will not fire if it is closed. The flash will work when it is opened up. When the flash is open, the (flash on) icon or (automatic) icon will appear on the LCD monitor (or in the viewfinder). Flash on: The flash fires in every shot. Automatic: The flash fires automatically. Press the (flash) button to switch between the and flash modes while the flash is open. In some shooting modes, the flash mode does not switch even if the flash button is pressed. Please refer to Functions Available in Each Shooting Mode in the Camera User Guide provided with your camera for more information. When you are not using the flash, close it manually. When the flash is closed, the flash will not fire and the icon appears on the LCD monitor (or in the viewfinder).
