Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Charging the flash of a camera,what is it?


Your camera has a small flash unit that can throw a bright burst of light to help illuminate dark scenes. It takes quite a bit of electrical power to put out that burst of light, and it takes several seconds to build up a sufficient charge before it can put out another burst of light.

Sony cybershot flasher is not working


Make sure you have it set for "normal" in the REC mode, and not
burst or multi-burst. They are too fast for the flash to have time to recharge. Thanks

Card locked error on Canon PoweShot SD 300


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, or the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Will not download pictures from camera to computer


I have the same camera. The little red light flashing is normal. It should flash for about a second and then go out. I believe the camera is reading the SD card during this time. If you turn on the camera with no SD card present this light should not flash. It sounds like you’re having problems transferring pictures from your camera to the computer. I'm guessing you’re using the USB cable that came with the camera to connect to the computer. I don't have an exact fix for this problem; it could be a defective cable or connector. However, I do have an alternative way for you to download your photos that I believe will work even better for you. Buy one of those mini SD card readers with the USB port adapters. The one I have is made by SanDisk and is called the MicroMate. Here's a link so you can see what it looks like. http://www.sandisk.com/Products/Item(2018)-SDDR-113-A11-MicroMate_for_SDHC.aspx When you want to download your photos just unplug the SD card from your camera, insert it into one end of the SD card reader, and plug the other end into a USB port. The computer recognizes it as a flash drive. Then you can just copy from one drive to another. I find it to be much faster then using the USB cable to download photos. I hope this helps you out.

Sd600 poweshot can it take a 4gb or 8gb memory card? i was planning to buy duracell SDHC 4GB card with 10MB /sec transfer speed


No, unfortunately the SD600 was designed before SDHC format cards were introduced. The max card size that you should buy for your camera is 2GB standard SD. If you look around very hard, and if you're very lucky, you may still be able to find a 4GB standard SD card. But these are rare these day (everyone has gone to SDHC at that size card), and it will be at premium price.

DMC-FX01 Flash Does Not Work


In what mode are you trying to take photos? The flash will not work in certain modes (see the manual), for example the night mode. Or you accidentialy turned on sequential/burst mode (this is mode where camera takes more pictures on one shutter button press). Flash cannot be used in this mode also. I don't have FX01, but on FZ8 the camera will show flash icon in red, but will take the picture anyway without flash being triggered. The second problems seems like enabled power-saving mode, but those 5 seconds are too short for this. But anyway you can check in SETUP menu the settings for power-save. Also maybe the flash is broken and camera noticed it... I don't think this could be a software problem. Either problem with the flash, but more probably just setting of wrong mode.
