When in any of the flash modes, wont take pic

When in any of the flash modes (whether auto or manual) it won't take pictures. The flash symbol will flash and it won't take a picture. this happens when i press it quickly, hold it and press it, put it down half way and then push it in all the way. Wahtever. It still takes when the flash is off, but not when it is on. Any suggestions?

Savvyme123, did you figure out this problem? Crazy thing -- the same day that you posted this, my camera was doing the same thing. When in flash mode, the red light on the front of the camera is on, but it won't actually the picture. When the camera is on flash-off mode, it takes pictures without any problem.

Shutting off flash


Yes, but not in the Auto mode, where the camera decides whether or not it needs the flash. Switch to the P mode, which works like Auto except you have control over the flash, exposure, and other factors. See pages 26 and 42 of this manual.

Oven clock no display and oven wont work any way to bypass clock new world cgk 21556


These things are a pain! When you first power up a lot of New Workd ovens, they come up in AUTO mode and the oven won't work, so you have to take it out of auto mode and stop the clock flashing. I'm giessing that though your clock DISPLAY isn't working, the clock is and the oven think it is.

There are 6 buttons below the clock display.To take it out of AUTO and stop the clock and oven thinking the display is flashing:

Numbering the buttons from left to right as 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 (because they have silly symbols!) press the 4th button (a picture of a hand) you will hear a little click and the oven will now work. If you have to power the unit off for more than about a minute at any time, you will need to do this again

When using flash it takes a couple of seconds to take photo hence picture is blurred


It's probably because you have enabled the slow sync flash mode.
To switch to the normal flash mode (auto flash) press your left directional key until the flash mode indicator near the top left of the screen (an icon with a "lightning" symbol) changes to an icon with a letter A next to the lightning symbol.
The slow sync flash mode is different from the normal flash mode; in this mode, the camera exposure duration can be a few seconds and the flash actuates at the beginning of the exposure. Although this is useful for certain photography techniques, you have to enable normal flash mode to take pictures in the normal way without blur.

My camera doesnt' work indoors. i try to take a picture and it doesnt' take when I'm in AUTO mode. However, when I'm in LANDSCAPE mode the pic will take. it seems like the flash isn't active in AUTO...


You must have a software glitch because the flash is supposed to be in the auto mode when the selector is in auto, unless you manually turn the flash off and the flash should go back to auto every time the camera is turned off and back on. Here's a work around. Turn the dial to indoor and use the flash button on the ring to set the flash to auto. In the indoor setting you can set the flash to on, off, or auto.

Perform the following troubleshooting steps to check whether the issue is resolved.
1. Remove the battery from the Camera for 1 minute. Re-insert the battery in the Camera and check if the issue is resolved.

2. If the issue is not resolved, then try initializing the Camera.
The Initialize option is listed in Setup or Settings option in the Camera.

You should be able to set the flash to off, auto, auto with redeye, slow-shutter sync, and forced flash on. The last two should give you the results you're looking for. If these aren't available in manual mode, get out of manual mode.

No flash on Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom


This does appear to be a settings problem...
On the 710, there are a number of settings combinations that will result in the flash remaining off.
Here are some that I can think of :

> If the camera is set to "Super-Macro", the camera will not allow you to turn on the flash.
> If you are shooting using any of the scene modes, watch out, because several of these can set the flash to "off", and may not allow you to override that setting. Try exiting "Scene" mode, and try setting the flash.
> If you are shooting using the "Guide" mode, be aware that several of the options there will set your flash to "off". But (in my experience) you usually can override "Guide" mode's flash settings.

This one is important>>> If you are shooting in the "Auto" mode, the camera will always decide whether to flash, and you can not alter its decision. The way to escape this tyranny is to shoot in the "Program Auto" mode. This setting is not located in the same place as all the others, at least it is not accessed in as direct a way. Try this :
>>With the mode selector switch (dial) positioned to indicate the picture of the little camera (and with power on), press the "OK" button in the middle of the 4-way controller. Now you can see the "Shooting" menu.
>>Use the bottom (down) part of the 4-way controller to scroll through the options...you are looking for the one that gives you a choice between "P" and "AUTO". Stop scrolling when that location is highlighted. Now you can use the right or left parts of the 4-way to select between the "P" or the "AUTO". Be patient here, as the camera's shift from one setting to the other can be sluggish, and if you press the button just fast enough, it will appear that no change is taking place. Be sure to select "P", and press "OK" again. Now you should have regained control of your flash settings...but to exercise that control, you will, of course, have to be in normal shooting mode (the picture of the little camera), and press the right side of the 4-way controller to open up the flash settings screen. There, use the 4-way controller and the "OK" button to make your selections. Consult your manual for the meanings of the symbols.

If it is not one of these, it may be still be a combination that I haven't listed...or it may be something more serious. I hope this helps, and good luck!

set it in manual, and open up the aperture. Flash exposure is mainly affected by aperture, Also make sure your shutter speed is set at flash sync speed
