    yes, very helpful, if i can pay $47 to fix this it will save me the $250 they wanted me to spend @ the store to get a new one because they didnt know what was wrong. Thank you.

Hi,
E:90:01 flashing is an error code that shows problem with flash circuit board that need to be replaced.
I would recommend to Initialize (reset) camera and this option will be available in Settings menu, if reset does not fix the problem then replace flash circuit board in camera.
Let me know your Sony camera model number to provide you part number and price info of required flash circuit.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

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,

The camera may be trying to tell you that your flash is turned off in Auto mode, but to get a proper exposure you will need the flash turned on. Try turning the flash on and see if that works.

Hope this helps!

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


I have seen this problem on the ex-s880 casio camera a few times sometimes you can go into the setup menu and reset the camera to default and that some times fixes it. it that does not work I have had to replace the flash circuit on the camera because the large compasitor is out and needs tobe replaces most likely this is your problem because of the flashing LED. Hope this helps its a great camera also you might want to check with casio because this should be covered under warrenty. If the camera was not dropped.

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).

The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.

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.
