    I have the same problem with no flash. While in the Auto mode, I'm not able to even "click" a picture. The only time when I can click a picture is to set the flash "off". However my pictures turn out really blurry. I was wondering if the flash needs replacement? Please advise.

I assumed this is a typographical error you mean the flash is not going on right? if this is so,

all digital cameras have a small tiny lens on the front, ( not the actual lense) this tiny sensor senses the background and the image you were trying to take a shot, if it does recognize the image is dark then the flash will work, when trying to use at night, try not putting your fingers to obstruct this lenses

or you can put the flash in auto mode if you have, then try, but since it was on as you say, change the battery...

Night Photography


Wait until the sun goes down.

In many ways night photography is just like day photography, except there's less light. With less light, you need a slower shutter speed, a wider aperture, a faster ISO, or a combination of all three. Or else you need to add light.

Just like day photography, the best camera settings (and other things) depend on what you want the photograph to say to the viewer.

You can add light by using the flash, car headlights, etc. The flash doesn't have much range; if you're sitting in the stands at a night sporting event your flash isn't going to affect any pictures you take of the action on the field. Another effect of the short range is that if you take a flash picture of a person at night, you're likely to have an almost completely black background. If you want something of the background to show, use the Night Portrait mode (and a tripod).

If you want to take a picture of a night landscape (or the night sky, with star trails) then turn off the flash. Put the camera on a tripod or other steady support and use a slow shutter speed.

If you're taking a picture of the full moon, then it's not night photography at all. The full moon is just a big rock under a midday sun, so treat it as such.

My camera doesnt take pics @ night Maybe flash


First make sure that the camera has fresh batteries. Then see that the flash setting is either 'on' or 'auto' or any graphic mode like a lightning bolt.
If this doesn't help, the flash might be damaged. Any camera shop can check this quickly.

Nikon D60x Blurry night pictures


Try switching to Shutter Prority (S) with a fast shutter speed.If the light is not so good, up the iso to 800 to gain that faster shutter speed..

You do not say the lens in use ? if VR, make sure its switched on or use a tripod.

Hope this helps

Finepix s700 says memory full and wont take more pictures with sd


i know this is late, but my camera had the same problem.
1. If you go in the setup menu.
2. Push the right button once and scroll down to the menu that says format.
3. It will ask you if you want to erase all data.
4. Select No and everything should be fine.

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?

Casio wont take pictures


That lens error msg means that you need to send it in. There is no resetting that you can do to fix that. Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. Tell them what's going on and that you would like to send it in for repairs. If they ask just lie and tell them you already talked to tech support. LOL
