Well Jim I hate to say it but you have to Install a fresh copy of Windows or Mac, what ever you have installed. The problem lies with your Boot Section, your computer can't read the sequence required to run your system. If you have an Installation disk for your windows or what ever, it will read that when you Re-Boot and take off from there. Sadly, if you have files you need to keep their lost unless your System Disk will let you repair instead of installing a fresh copy of windows. That should do the trick. If you don't use your windows disk, you have to have some type of Bootable Disk to read from. Good Luck.

Nikon d3100 stuck on flash mode


What do you mean by flash mode?
Have you read the manual how to use the camera?
If nothing from there helps, try connecting it via USB and check if there is firmware update. If even that doesn't help, try acessing menu and doing hard reset from there.

My camera say no flash because of micro mode how do i turn the flash on?


The Micro mode is used to shoot close up images. Turning on the flash in micro mode will result washed out over exposed images. Hence in most cameras, choosing the micro mode will automatically disable the built in flash. Some Camera will show the message, cannot use flash or flash cannot be changed because of the micro restriction. This is normal operation. If you wish to use flash, please use some other manual priority mode.
thanks for understanding.

The flash isnt working. if i try to take a photo with the flash on, nothing happens


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:

  1. When shooting MPEG movies.
  2. When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode.
  3. If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode.
  4. Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  5. Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  6. 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.

In my holga 120 cfn the flash doesn't go off when i press the shutter. the batteries seem fine and the orange light turns on, but when i press the shutter nothing happens. a couple of times it has worked,...


The flash would fire as per the requirement, in auto mode.

If the ambient light is enough then the flash will not fire.

In case you need to use the flash in bright conditions (e.g. For using as a fill flash) please repeatedly press the flash button (The one with the lightning symbol on it) till you get a lightning bolt symbol on the camera display.

Now your flash will fire on every shot that you click!

Please ensure that you revert back to the Auto mode once done.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

Nikon CoolPix Flash Problem


This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.

Strange flash problem...


Suggest you go through all the other menus to check whether you have the camera working in some mode which isn't compatible with flash. For instance, my Olympus (different model) won't allow you to select flash if you're working in super macro mode. A.
