    I have the same problem on my Sony DSC-H2. I have reset the camera to factory settings but that does not help. The red eye lights up, the flash pops up but the flash does not go off

Hello.

that is repairable, however only the expert on pentax camera can do the task. You can contact your vendor maybe they can cater the issue about the camera. best regards, melnavz

My Pentax Optio M90's Flash has stopped working.. it doesn't matter if I have selected the flash to be on or off it still won't work. Even when setting are set at auto it still won't work...


Hi kerritm,

This indicated that it's time you need to replace your flash , therefore you can get it done via a service center,

The camera's flash has a certain life and you can't expect it to be ok for many years together ,

In unfortunate cases , it stops working due to hard ware failure.

Therefore , Please get the flash replaced and you would be able to use it.

Hope this helps..:)

Switching off as if battery is depleted when the battery is newly charged


I called Pentax and they said it's a known problem and the lens needs to be re-synchronized. They said this is usually caused by dust in the lens.

I have to send the camera to : -
Pentax U.K. Limited
Pentax House
Heron Drive
Langley
Slough
SL3 8P

It's a free repair if you bought the camera less than a year ago o/w they will send you a quote for the repair.

OPTIO S4: FAULTY FLASH ... Help please!


Check the settings and be sure you have sufficient power. If you want to test the camera for defaults, remove the batter from the camera for a day or so, then replace it. This will set its defaults. If the flash continues to not work, then I suggest calling Pentax and having it serviced.
