Flash will not work properly

Hi-I have a Polaroid a801 when I turn my camera on, it powers up fine, but when I want to take a picture the red light that blinks before my camera is ready to take a picture with flash will not stop blinking. If I change modes, to a picture w/o flash, I do not have a problem.
Please help!
Thanks-
Krystal

Hi,
It may be the batteries, If using rechargeables one may be weak. try new batteries and check the battery contacts are all clean use a pencil eraser or a cotton bud (Qtip) moistened (not wet) with isopropyl alcohol (tape/stylus cleaning fluid)
If that dose'nt help Im sorry to say the flash is probably faulty as it would appear to be trying to charge but not reaching a full charge

Nikon S210 flash not working


The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

Turning off after taking a picture with a flash


Sorry but that is just because the flash is recharging.. It turns the screen off so it can charge the flash faster.. No worries it works fine :)
