Go to the menu RESET ALL may work. Then go back to the menu and set the settings to the way you want them, test the camera and see if the flash works.
Make sure that the flash settings are on and not turned off in the menu settings.

If the flash is on in the settings and it still does not work, then this camera needs repairs.

60d flash pop up


Mode dial is set to an auto mode or the setting is set for flash photography. Change that and the built-in flash unit won't pop-up every time you press the shutter button.

Turning flash off on Nikon D60


Based on what you said, it appears that you want to know how to turn the flash off on your D-60.

On my D-90, you do this by rotating the mode switch on the top center left side of the camera one click counterclockwise, from the green automatic setting, to the white automatic with no flash setting.

You can also change flash settings from the menu. For my D-90, the manual says you use custom setting "e2." Check your manual for the D-60.

I never turn my flash off from the menu because it takes too long to turn it back on when you need it. Another alternative is to simply hold the on-camera flash in the down position while you shoot.

Flash pops but doesnt fire


Still this is strange. Most of the time when I use the auto setting, I turn the main dial not on the green camera, but on the one between SCENE and the green logo. That prevent the flash to pop up. But still if you want to use the flash it should be possible.
Be aware that some settings the flash can't be used, f.i. when the shutter speed is to high. I would suggest to put al user settings back to standard and try to use the flash again. If it stalls again, try to read the display, if it gives anything of a warning or message.

Nikon D40. How do i force the flash to work in daylight?


First, you have to be in one of the PSAM modes; in the other modes the camera decides whether it needs the flash and in daylight it will decide there's enough light without it. So, after turning the model dial to one of the PSAM positions, press the flash button on the front of the camera to pop up the flash. In these modes the camera will fire the flash if it's popped up, and not if it's down.

To change the flash mode, hold down the flash button (after it's popped up) and turn the command dial. Depending on the chosen exposure mode, your choices may include Fill flash, Red-eye reduction, Rear-curtain sync, Slow sync, Rear-curtain plus red-eye reduction, and Rear-curtain plus slow sync. Refer to the "Flash Mode" section of the manual for full details.

My flash simply will not work. I have a hard time getting a photo when the flash is needed because it won't allow me to shoot. I select 'no flash' and I get a photo but poor quality. Thank you!


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 shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode Shooting with Sweep Panorama mode Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode. If an external flash is connected. Please make sure that the Camera is not set to any of these modes. You can check the manual to get the information to change the setting..
If the issue persists, please reset the Camera and make sure that battery is fully charged. If the issue persists after performing all the above mentioned troubleshooting steps, service is required. If you feel that the above Troubleshooting steps, helped you. please rate my answer positively. Thanks for understanding.

We have a Canon rebel XT EOS the flash pops up no matter what the


Frustrating I am sure. I had the same problem on my first XTi. I cannot remember what the settings were, but I think I was set for portrait and had flash set as the white balance default source. Therefore the camera always popped up the flash assuming that I wanted or needed fill flash.

Change you white balance to sun/shade/tungston etc as is appropriate, choose a faster ISO speed in lower light levels and try using the P or Tv mode and use a shutter speed that generates a middle range aperature for your particular lens.

When i turn on my digital camera, in the upper left hand corner, there is a red, flash symbol which i don't know how to turn off??? Thank you in advance for your assistance.


You should be able to turn off your flash, or change the flash to a different flash setting by using one of the buttons on somewhere on your camera. The proper button is identified by the flash symbol, that looks the same as the one on your LCD screen, a jagged, down ward facing arrow, that looks something like a bolt of lightning. Simply press this, it will ether change the setting on your LCD, or bring up the settings that you can change manually by selecting whatever setting you want for the flash.If you don't want to change any of the settings, but want to clear the symbol off of your LCD screen simply hit the Display button that will hide those icons from your view and can be seen again simply by hitting display once more. I hope this is of some help to you, if not, consult your user guide or manual that came with the camera, it should explain exactly what to do. I hope that you have success, God bless...

Pop up flash not working


You probably need to change the setting wheel on the top of your camera to either auto or Program (P) to do what you are wanting.

Auto flash won't pop up


With the Canon XSi, the flash should automatically pop up in FULL AUTO mode when it thinks it needs to. In modes like Manual Mode, you need to pop it up yourself. There is a button on the front next to the lens that looks like a lightning bolt, that's the flash activator. Try popping your camera into Manual Mode and press that button. If it doesn't work then there might be a problem with the mechanism and needs repairs.
