    When my camera is set to flash mode, there is a little yellow light that just blinks and the flash won't work. How do I fix this?

    The indication for the flash is there, but when the picture is taken the camera doesnt flash. I have been going through the manual but nothing said there seems to help. I wish someone would tell me how this can be rectified, PLEASE

The flash on my Panasonic DMC-FZ100 doesn't work, I've tried 'forced flash' and thats not working either?


Hello Ray, This is not something a user wants to attempt !!! The camera really needs to be repaired by a tech. You will do more harm than good by trying to fix it yourself and will cost even more if you damage something.

Best Regards, Russell

There is something wrong with my flash screen. It's Black. Everytime I try to take pictures on My Finepix z fujifil blue digital camera the screen goes black, and when I go to see what I took a picture...


Flash screen? What? You mean even in pictures with flash disabled (and the flash does drag down the electronics in the thing; make a replacement using an LED lamp and circuit if you have a chance) it takes no picture and leaves you with a black LCD? Are you indeed using a good battery (they go bad gradually (depending on the case on how many times you fire the flash!)) New battery first!

My Nikon Coolpix s230 flash won't work. It just blinks red in the lower right hand corner. I've tried all the settings and they all won't flash.


If there is a problem with the flash itself or the mainboard connection to the flash it will not charge. If the flash won't charge then it won't go off when you take a picture. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the flash with a good used one and see if that fixes it. If not, then you need to replace the mainboard. Good used parts can usually be found online for cheap; that auction website doesn't pay me to type their name, so I don't, sorry. Hope this helps!

I have a Canon PowerShot SD880 IS Camera and occasionally when I use the flash I see smoke coming from it. Do you know why this is happening? What can I do to resolve this issue? Is it likely to cause...


Sometimes this is just a result of a little dust getting in there and it burning off with the heat from the flash. I've seen this go away after a few shots and the cameras work fine. If it doesn't after like a day of using the flash on and off then I would contact a Canon authorized service center for repairs. Also, I recommend that the camera not be stored/carried in a dirty environment like a pocket or a dirty case. All that lint and dust is likely to make it's way into your flash, lens, etc. Hope this helps!

I have recently taken pics at three different stage shows for children. The lighting was bright on one but the other two there wasn't a lot of lighting. I have a Nikon D40X with a SB-600 flash on. ...


Red-eye is caused by the light from the flash reflecting from the back of the eye. There are several ways to eliminate or at least reduce the effect. One, as you've done, is to edit the photo after it's been taken. The red-eye reduction feature of the camera shines a light at the subject, causing the pupils to contract and thus reduce the reflection from the eyes.

A good way is to move the flash away from the camera. This causes the red reflection to go toward the flash, not the camera. Unfortunately, the D40x lacks the Commander mode to control remote flashes. Instead, you can use something like the SC-29 cord to move the flash away from the camera.

Another possibility to consider is to not use the flash at all. Bump up the ISO and see whether there's enough light for existing-light photography.

When you were having that lens problem, did you perchance open the camera case to repair it? If so, please see this link, and afterwards verify that all outer case screws are present and firmly seated (but don't strip them).

I received the vivitar dvr 850hd with the 2.4" screen. i can't get the flash or strobe light to work to take pictures or movies when it is dark. is there something special that i need to do to get it...


When in the 'Camera' setting, push the left arrow on the camera to 'Auto' or 'On'. the flash should flash if it is dark enough. also, I don't think you can use the flash when making movies.

I´ve opened the camera to clean it up


1. You shouldn't have opened it. 2. You probably shorted out the capacitor...lucky you didn't get burned. 3. You need repairs...bring lots of money.

When ever i take a picture, the orange light turns on acting like its going to take a picutre but it doesnt. When i take it off flash, it takes the picture.


The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready.
Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.
