The flashing eye indicates that the red eye minimizer feature is enabled. My NV 10 has buttons on the back that line up with features on the screen. Try to find the one that looks like an eye. That option is often times tied to the flash feature. The flash may be able to be turned on with the same button.

The multi selector is the round control on the rear of the camera with the OK button in its center.
The flash mode button is the top button on the selector, it has a lightning flash icon.
Press the flash mode button on the multi selector.
Highlight the desired mode and press the center of the multi selector.
The flash modes are:
AUTO; Flash fires automatically when lighting is poor.
AUTO WITH RED-EYE REDUCTION; Reduces "red eye" in portraits.
OFF; Flash will not fire even when lighting is poor.
FILL FLASH; Flash fires whenever picture is taken. Use to "fill-in" (illuminate) shadows and back-lit subjects.
SLOW SYNC; Flash illuminates mainsubject; slow shutter speeds are used to capture background at night or under dim light
The selected flash mode icon appears at the top of the monitor.
I don't know whether this camera has red-eye reduction. It is likely to be found in the setup for the flash, or as a toggle for the flash setting. On some cameras, you toggle through the available flash settings until the icon (usually a lightening bolt) has an eye next to it.
Red eye reduction is not perfect even if the camera offers it. You get a much better solution by using a photo editing program in the computer to remove red eye from your shots. Many such programs have a function just for this that works almost automatically. You may have gotten a photo editing program with the camera, but there are many others downloadable for free on the net, try www.download.com.
Press Right on the cursor button (marked with the lightning bolt icon) to switch the flash setting. Your choices are AUTO, AUTO/Red-eye reduction, Forced ON, Forced ON/Red-eye reduction, Slow sync/Red-eye reduction, and Forced OFF.
Resolution has nothing to do with it. Red eye is caused by the flash being close to the camera lens, when the flash fires it reflects light from the persons eye back to the camera lens. Solution is to set your cameras flash setting to "red eye" This setting makes the flash "stutter" to make the eye not reflect the flash back to the camera. The red eye setting can be achieved by repeatedly pressing the flash function button until you see a lightening bolt with an eye icon in your display panel. The other option is to boost your iso to about 800 or 1000 for indoor useage, the problem with this is that the pictures will have a grainy look to them, but the flash will not fire.
Anyone found a soluton for this? My Ixus 700 worked fine one day, but the next the flash wont go off. The little flash icon is showing on LCD and the red eye reduction lights as well but the camera wont tae the picture!
Find the flash mode menu on the camera (keep pressing the button with a lightning flash on it) until you find the anti-redeye mode (has an icon that looks like an eye).
Try page 71 of the manual (http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/qv/en/EXZ60_e.pdf)
This works by firing a rapid series of low power flashes for a second or two before taking the picture. These cause the subjects' pupils to contract in response to the light, creating a smaller window on the retina when the main flash comes.
