I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no...


The 8025 is a very cheap camera....I hope you didn't pay more than $15 at the pawn shop. Your camera has a blown flash tube. The camera could have been dropped in water by the previous owner. You could have bought one at Walmart that would have at least worked a little longer.

When we try to review it come up "read Error" and dose not let us. also the flash stays on force flash, also wont shut off and freezes up . this all started last night we bought it a month ago...


Sorry, I do not see any firmware updates that apply to your flash situation, but I do see one that seems to apply to your picture review situation:
Please read the firmware update instructions and follow them carefully. Errors during firmware updates can ruin your camera:

I bought a Sony DSC t700 approximately 6 months


If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
To set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness, press the UP ARROW on the control button until a lightning bolt icon appears on the LCD screen.

If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
When shooting MPEG movies
When set to the Twilight mode
If an external flash is connected
If in the Burst or Multi Burst mode

Please touch the MENU option on the screen of the Camera.
Then, select the REC MODE under the MENU.
Then, select NORMAL under the REC MODE.

If you're not able to select the NORMAL under the REC MODE, try Initializing the Camera.

First, please touch the HOME on the LCD screen of the Camera.
Then, select the SETTINGS in the HOME menu.
Then, select the MAIN SETTINGS under the SETTINGS.
Then, select the Initialize under the MAIN SETTINGS.

If the issue still persists after performing the troubleshooting steps provided above service of the Camera is required.

It's required to physically examine the Camera to determine the exact issue at the service center.

Flas stopped working


The problem you are describing is a problem with the flash charging indicator switch inside the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $83 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

I can't get the flash to work.


The accessory shoe above the flash has a switch under the plate which detects when an external flash is attached. If that switch has become obstructed by dirt the camera will not fire the built in flash. Check it is free from dirt or corrosion, apart from that, the only other cause will be the flash tube itself is faulty and needs to be replaced. The user manuals for Canon cameras are usually fairly thorough but if you require further assistance your local photo store should be able to direct you to some helpful workshops to help get the most out of your product.

Fujifilm FinePix 3800 flash will not work


Normally when the flash stops working it is because the capacitor the camera uses to store the flash power ( that is what charges..not the bulb) burns out. This is a very difficult repair and should only be completed by a camera technician.
If the repair is over 10 dollars I would suggest a new camera.

My flash has stopped working


Hi

Unfortunately you will either need to replace the flash unit... or if you're unlucky the main PCB. I don't think you will be able to do anything without either of those parts.

I have made my living running a digital camera repair business for several years now, wish I had better news for you about your camera. If we can help with the repair let us know.

Good luck: Darntoothysam com

Flash: PCB Replacement v. New Bulb!?


I had the same issue. The flash is set to go off, the camera assumes it went off, (as the record metadata shows) but it doen't go off at all, and the piture is underexposed.

I bought the 100 page repair manual, which is ONLY a dissassemble/reassemble manual with NO diagnostics. (Got it on ebay) So I was atleast able to get to the capacitor and flash bulb. I saw 300V across the capacitor leads, and the same 300Volts across the flash bulb leads. SO I am assuming that there is a transistor or relay that drops to ground to fire the flash that isn't working, or the electronic signal to drive that isn't working.

It seems most people replace the entire flash circuit board(which is near the capacitor under the left hand side). But it seems Nikon only sells parts to it certified repair facilities.

Ugh.... Looks like I'm buying a SB-600, as this is the cheepest solution. Too bad, because the on-board flash is more than decent. I hope the SB-600 thrills me enough to change my mood. :)

Flash not working


It is possible a defect or that it has been dropped. Switch to flash and put to your ear -can you hear the capacitor charging up - [a feint whistle]? If it does not function return to vendor as defective.

Did you try to reinitialize? Setup menu go down to the third Setup#1 menu and make sure you click OK to reinitialize. That's what the manual said.
