    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.

My Canon Rebel XS will not auto focus correctly. It sounds like it is trying to focus, but only flashes and will not focus or take the picture.


Those quick fast flashes usually mean the camera is trying to find contrast to take the photo but it can't. The scene might be to dark and the camera can not set it's focus and there for cannot take a picture. Move the camera slightly from left to right on the subject and see if it can manage to set focus. It's normal for the camera to give out these quick flashes as it is trying to find some sort of contrast in the subject, turning on a room light might help this?

Now when you manually focus, then the camera does not have to use it's built in auto focus sensor and will let you take a photo when you manually focus on the subject.

Flash will not pop up


Alot problems with this...

The pop up flash only pops up half the way. We had a large dinner party the other night and tried to take pics only to find the flash would not go off. Later, I manually lifted the flash all the way open and took pic and flash did go off. Battery fully charged. In auto mode. Camera only 2-3 years old! Really upset. Went to the web to see if others have same problem AND THEY DO!!! Several have the half pop flash and resolve it by holding the flash up manually. So thought this was a global problem and Chatted with Kodak Customer Service (puleeese). They said, sorry, but $150 to fix or 25% off upgrade camera.

Think it before take some choice.

To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching your lens to manual focus and shoot that way.

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.

Every picture comes out very dark


Check your pics on the computer. Are they still dark? If they're OK then problems in camera's display.

Sony DSC W50 Camera - Trouble with Flash


Hi, I guess you are using the automatic mode ( not the "P" mode).
You should enable flash only when there is insuffient light. If you use flash in broad day light, your pic will be whited out. If you dont use flash in dark or low light, your pic will be dark or very dark.
So, when it comes of dark, try enabling the flash. If its still dark, increase the flash compensation (the eV value). If its still dark, increase the ISO number.
Hope these help.
cheers,

Rebel Xt Sometimes when I try to take a pic it will not work!


one of my cameras does that. I shorted it out by using a non-compatible flash attachment. might need to take it in for repair. works fine without the flash though.
