    My camera has the same problem, not even a year old, but I can't find the receipt to return it! The flash pops open slightly, but does not pop up all the way and has to be held in place with my finger.

    Same exact problem here. I replaced the batteries took a few pics, and now the flash doesn't pop and stay up. It barely pops and has to be held with my finger.

The flash on my S700 stopped popping up too. But I made a spring about 3/4 inch in diameter by 3/4 inch high with about 1 3/4 loops. I glued it right under the flash. It works quite well now.

Some how we have deactivated the flash to our fuji fine pix S700 digital camera and now the flash wont pop up or do anything can you help


I have looked on this site for the manual for your camera
http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/manuals/
However, as you will see when you go to this site, your camera model is not listed. Are you sure the model number is correct?

Without the model number, I can say generally, that digital cameras have a menu button that has many options in it which includes setting the flash to Auto or On or Off. Explore your camera options a little and I'm sure that you will find these options.

Good luck to you and Thank You for using FixYa.

Always getting blurry indoor photos, excellent outdoor shots.


Hi,

Is the mode dial on top of the camera on AUTO?
This should pop up the flash when it is required.

Also check the flash is on AUTO, this is set by the right arrow button on the back of the camera.
There is a lightning bolt icon by it.
This button cycles thru the settings so press it until nothing shows, this is the auto setting.

Hope this helps.

Flash will not pop up. Can you help?


If it releases but doesn't properly pop up then this may be the answer.

Mine did the same thing. The problem in mine after extensive disassembly was the plastic had broken inside the flash where the pop up spring attaches.

This was a pretty extensive repair with full disassembly in my case, not for most people.

A workaround is to take a small rubber band, loop it over the top of the camera from the eyepiece for the viewfinder to the lobe in front of the flash. When you need flash, release the flasy and unhook the elastic fromt he front lobe and let it go under the raised flash unit and it will keep it up. If you case lets you, you can leave it that way. Not pretty but functional.

I cannot get my fuji 9500 flash to work despite checking all the guides recommended in the manual


Do you have to manualy pop it up first? You can have auto flash or Forced flash. It should work in Auto mode given the correct conditions, (Dark).

Just a thought

Fuji finepix S700 Built in flash not working


It is a common problem. Your flash probably does not pop all the way up. I fixed mine by gluing a spring I made under the flash. The spring is about 3/4 round x 1/2 high with about 1 1/2 turn. It took me a while to get the spring tension right.

Flash not popping up or working on fuji finepix s700 digital camera


The S700 does NOT have a manual release for the flash to pop up, but it DOES have a spring already. DO NOT try to force it! Set the flash to "FORCE", leave your lens cap on and waste a shot to allow the flash hood to pop up. Reset your flash to the desired setting and now the flash is already open and ready for use without the delay and the startling effect it has when your concentrating on framing your shot. As for the other problem of no flash in any setting: Check your menus to see if you have the flash totally disabled, check your batteries, does the "charge indicating light" come on at all between shots? In RARE cases, the actual bulb that flashes may be burned out, or a component in the flash circuit itself,such as the capacitor, may have gone bad. Did the flash ever work? If under warranty, return for repair or replacement. There are NO user serviceable parts in these tiny cameras
