Hi,
Do you mean FX7? I understand that you've tried all usual tricks like resetting the camera to factory settings, setting the flash to "forced on" etc.
If so, then there's not a lot you can do apart from replacing the flash assembly. This is a fairly uncommon issue (out of some 100 lumix cameras I've played with I only saw 2 in which flash failed), so you should be able to find a nice donor camera on ebay which you could scavenge for the replacement flash assembly. Flash in FX7 is integrated with the top part of the camera (where power/shutter/zoom buttons are) - this is the bit you need. It's relatively easy to dismantle and put together.
Good luck,
Raf

Panasonic DMC-Z28 - the flash button does not call up a flash setting menu and so the flash won't turn on.


Is your Z28 set up to do burst shooting as this will stop the flash working, click on the trash button and turn off the burst shooting. Hope this helps.

How to clean a panasonic lumix dmc ts1 lens. i get spots when i take pictures


If the spots appear on flash pics only and are in different places on each photo, then the spots are not on your lens. Those are dust particles reflecting the light from your flash. It's a common problem with point-and-shoot cameras.

You camera may be in 'auto'flash' mode, meaning the camera decides if the flash is necessary, depending on the lighting situatioin. Try your flash setting on forced flash instead of automatic, or try it in the dark to see if the flash goes off.

Flash not working


Hi there.
look in the camera's settings to see if the flash is turned on, if it is and the flash still does not work you will need to take it to a service center for them to replace the halogen bulb.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20


This happened to me after a day in the sun..
There seems to be some poor electrical contact so when the flash popped up I had to manually pull it up further to ensure that it was on.
