I have a nikon coolpix. i've tried every flash option yet the flash never goes off....
i took it to a repair shop and he said i'll need a new flash circuit and it's going to cost
$130 to replace it. i don't know much about cameras, but is this high? also, would it
be better to just get a new digital?
Usualy the flash is soldered into the unit. Are you sure its on? some pop up and some have to beflipped up automaticly. Does your display show a lighting bolt? the normal icon for flash being on is a lightning bolt. If it has a line threw it it is disabled in the settings somewhere. Ive never seen one that has failed so it makes me think there is a wrong setting somewhere. Try and hold it up maybe there is dust or dirt o the switch keeping it from detecting it is up and ready for use?
