Make sure all your settings in the menus are as you want them.

Also: You can try to reset all the settings from the menu setting.

My camera won't take pictures with the flash on and when i try the red light just blinks. only takes pictures with no flash.


When your flash light (I mean the part that gives the flash) or the capacitor that stores the power for the flash are defect. you won't see a flash. When a red light comes on, when actually the flash should fire, the most likely the capacitor is defect. The electronics sensed it could not reach the voltage needed to fire the flash.
It also could mean your battery can't deliver enough to charge the capacitor, but is that was the case the battery indicator should tell you.

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?

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


Set the camera to anything except no flash. Turn it off. Take out the battery. Wait 5-10 seconds. Put the battery back in. The flash should now work until you turn the camera off again (and then you must remove/replace the battery to get the flash working again).

The flash requires some kind of "master reset" to work. Haven't found a permanent solution to this.

Silly question as I am sure you have tried but try turning the Flash on permanently in the settings of the camera. Let me know if it works.
