It sounds like the capacitor on the flash board isn't charging. They're small electrolytics that go bad in time, but usually are good for a few years. There could also be other problems such as a cracked solder joint on the board. It could also be a fault with the main board, but not likely in this situation.
The unit will have to be serviced, or at least troublshot, and you might contact Moultrie to see what they can do, or what they offer for support. I couldn't find a site for them online, so refer to your manual that came with the unit.
As an alternative, you can run it by a local repair shop, and see what they would fix it for.
Always get an estimate first, since it can run a bit.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Flash

The flash PCB (circuit board) is a common failure point on your D70. It will need parts replaced. Nikon will be expensive, you might wish to use the service locater here on Fixya to find someone in your area.

SOURCE: Can't take picture with flash on

Hi

Your flash is defective and needs to be replaced, nothing else will fix the problem.

One solution is to look online for a defective camera and use the parts to fix yours. Another is to buy a flash from someone like us who sells new and used parts and performs repairs if you can't do it yourself.

Please feel free to check us out, Google: Darntoothysam and you will find us, I cant post a link.

Thanks and good luck from Darntoothysam com

Shutting off flash


Yes, but not in the Auto mode, where the camera decides whether or not it needs the flash. Switch to the P mode, which works like Auto except you have control over the flash, exposure, and other factors. See pages 26 and 42 of this manual.

How do i turn the flash off


Welcome to FixYa.

The FORCED OFF mode is the setting where flash is not activated in any recording condition. this mode used when taking pictures in places where the use of the flash is not permitted.

There are other 5 different mode/setting in using photo flash.

1. AUTO - flash automatically activated according to the recording condition.

2. AUTO/Red-eye reduction - flash is automatically activated according to the recording condition. It reduces the red-eye phenomenon by triggering the flash before actually recording the picture. After that, the flash is activated for actual recording again.

3. FORCED ON - use the when your subject is back-lit or under fluorescent light.

4. FORCED ON/Red-eye reduction - use this when you set the camera to PARTY MODE

5. Slow sync./Red-eye reduction - use this when you take pictures of people in front of a dark background.

I hope this solution will help you. Just send us you comments or suggestion if this solution was helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My camera doesnt' work indoors. i try to take a picture and it doesnt' take when I'm in AUTO mode. However, when I'm in LANDSCAPE mode the pic will take. it seems like the flash isn't active in AUTO...


You must have a software glitch because the flash is supposed to be in the auto mode when the selector is in auto, unless you manually turn the flash off and the flash should go back to auto every time the camera is turned off and back on. Here's a work around. Turn the dial to indoor and use the flash button on the ring to set the flash to auto. In the indoor setting you can set the flash to on, off, or auto.

If it is set to auto then about all I can think of is low light pictures and you may have the flash disabled or the battery level is too low to power the flash .

Try taking a picture in bright sunlight and see if it behaves. I can't recal if that model disables and enables the flash with the menu or if it has a button on the case looks like a lightening flash. And don't forget to charge your battery

Why won't the flash on my e500 pop up when the correct button is pressed or when I try to take a picture that requires a flash?


When you take pictures in AUTO, Portrait, Macro or Night scene mode, the built-in flash will automatically pop up in low-light or backlit conditions. If you want to control the flash pop-up, set this function to OFF.
1 Menu [AUTO POP UP]
2 Use control dial to select [ON] or [OFF].
3 Press the Ok
button.

If you are in any other mode the flash will not auto pop up.

Flash-Off Problem


Do you have the camera in the auto mode?
Did you check to make sure that the auto focus is not in the manual mode when the flash is turned off?

If the above does not comply, call the tech support for the camera.

There is also a possibity that there is a defect, or that the flash is part of the auto focus function.

No flash in "P" mode


In all of modes you can use "up" key to toggle between "always on", "auto"  and "off" mode for flash. (in some mode there is only auto and off.) also the flash light icon on top right of screen shows th status of flash. I hope this helps...
