Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera
First ensure that it is not a setting problem, flash is faulty when the flash is not shooting under any condition. Setting and light conditions sometimes can cause the flash not shooting.
Also ensure that the problem happens with charged batteries, while the rest of the camera functions are regularly working.
If the flash is never working, then the fault is likely the flash capacitor.
To operate the flash the camera uses a circuit that stores charge into a capacitor. When the capacitor fails, the flash will not shoot, and the led will turn on only occasionally, when a small charge for the the led is stored in the faulty flash control circuit. Thepower will still not be enough to turn the flash on because the faulty capacitor will not be able to store charge.
To fix the problem is necessary complete camera disassembly, and the job must be done by a technician.
