Look at the thumb pad on the back of your camera (see picture below, courtesy of The uppermost part of it acts not only as an up key in the menu selections, but in shooting modes controls the flash (as per the lightning symbol next to it). With the camera turned on and in automatic mode (the green camera icon on the mode selector dial) just press the flash button and look at the screen. Eventually you'll get an icon of a lightning flash behind a red circle with a bar across it, this disables the flash.

Note that if you have any of the other shooting modes selected then the flash may still operate as in those modes everything is pre-selected by the camera with no or few override options.

I hope this fixes your problem, please take a moment to rate my free answer.

Flash will not fire

Make sure you are in a mode that supports the flash and also make sure the flash was not disabled. There are ways to make the flash "not" fire on purpose when the camera would normally use the flash.

Cant get the flash to turn on. camera says no flash in macro mode.

flash is really disabled when a camera is n macro mode. its disabled because since you are going to take pictures of small objects tendencies are your subject will be over exposed if flash is applied. so dont worry because its normal.

How can I disable the multi flash on the Olympus e-510 in auto mode

I'm not certain what you mean by "multi flash". I'll give you two answers. 1.) If you are attempting to take a picture under low light levels, the rapid flashing is the camera adding light to the scene for the autofocus to work. You may have to manually focus in these situations if you don't want the rapid flashing. 2.) The autoflash can be disabled with the flash button on top of the camera. Pressing it once will open the pop up flash. Pressing it a second time will bring up a menu on the screen. Highlight the lightening bolt with the line through it and press 'OK". Auto flash can also be disabled by using one of the scene modes such as low light, candlelight, night scene or fireworks.

I bought a canon powershot SX200 IS but the flash is permanently disabled. I've tried pressing the enable flash button on the round dial on the back of the camera in each setting but it still wont enable....

There is a sensor that detects whether the flash has been raised or not. It seems like this sensor has malfunctionned and is telling the camera that the flash is not raised; this is causing the flash to be disabled.

You must rectify the problem with the sensor. Call Canon warranty support or visit the store that you purchased the camera from to get it sorted by a professional.

Flash doesn't work and camera won't take picture unless flash disabled

Obvious answer to start with - Are the batteries fully charged? You may not have enough power for the flash to charge and to take the photo.

Flash doesn't work

The fault may be a simple setting that may have been changed, have you checked your Manual to see if you can disable the flash? Is the flash disabled?

If no, take it to a Camera Repair shop (can be sent through any Camera Retailer) and get a quote to fix it, then decide whether it is economical to fix or better to buy another camera.

Note: this is still a "good" camera for it's features, so don't rush out and buy another camera unless you really want to.

Good luck.
