Re: kodak flash circut, need one, maybe a manual to show...
On my Z650, the microswitch that turns the flash circuit on when opening the flash broke when I dropped it. I fixed it by gluing another microswitch on the side on the flash housing and wiring it to where the broken switch was.
Not sure where you can get another microswitch from - try scrounging one from an old VCR or another broken camera. Better still from a Z650 then you can just replace the broken one on the circuit board rather than making an alternative arrangement like I had to.

If this doesn't solve the problem.
KODAK suggests a repair for this fault.
However due to spare part shortage this model is no longer repaired. Instead KODAK offers a trade up option where you will have the opportunity to trade up to a newer model 25-30% cheaper than the market price.
1.Turn off the camera. 2.Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera. then turn it ON 3.Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash. 4.Take a picture. [If flash still doesn't work contact Kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)]
Try to do this press the flash button then chose the Fill Flash so if you take picture it will always fire the flash., May be your using the Auto Flash. If your flash will not fire using the Fill Flash setup it means the Flash is defective call tech support toll free 1 800 235 6325 ext 12
You may also see the flash setting if you press the menu button and under menu button look for setup
Resolution has nothing to do with it. Red eye is caused by the flash being close to the camera lens, when the flash fires it reflects light from the persons eye back to the camera lens. Solution is to set your cameras flash setting to "red eye" This setting makes the flash "stutter" to make the eye not reflect the flash back to the camera. The red eye setting can be achieved by repeatedly pressing the flash function button until you see a lightening bolt with an eye icon in your display panel. The other option is to boost your iso to about 800 or 1000 for indoor useage, the problem with this is that the pictures will have a grainy look to them, but the flash will not fire.
As a first step, make sure the batteries are fully charged and check in the Shooting menu if you have switched the flash to 'off' mode. Then check the shooting mode. In some shooting modes (like landscape), some cameras do not fire the flash. To check if the flash is working properly, change the mode to 'Night Portrait' and try to shoot. This mode is sure to fire the flash if everything is well with the camera. If still the flash is not working, take it to the nearest authorized service center.
