Question about Nikon CoolPix S2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My flash isn't working!

Coolpix S2 - and the flash isn't working. I have reset all the settings to default. The flash red light blinks indicating that the flash is 'charging' (ie not working) and you can't take a photograph except in 'landscape mode' when the flash is switched off. Can you cahnge a bulb or something - or is it more serious?

Not a repairable situation here - the camera is a single piece. Nikon Technical Support will advise further.

My camera won't take pictures with the flash on and when i try the red light just blinks. only takes pictures with no flash.

When your flash light (I mean the part that gives the flash) or the capacitor that stores the power for the flash are defect. you won't see a flash. When a red light comes on, when actually the flash should fire, the most likely the capacitor is defect. The electronics sensed it could not reach the voltage needed to fire the flash.
It also could mean your battery can't deliver enough to charge the capacitor, but is that was the case the battery indicator should tell you.

I hve a nikon coolpix 10 MP but the image quality is poor....i have tried resetting all the camera settings to default and dont know what else to do....also, it keeps showing a red colored icon (it...

The red clock indicates that the date and time need to be set.
As for the "poor" quality, there are many possibilities. If the colors are wrong, the most likely culprit is an improper white balance setting. If the pictures are blurry, that could be caused by subject motion, camera motion, improper focus, or a combination of the three. If pictures taken with the flash are too light or too dark, that could be because the subject is outside of the flash's range. Without knowing what you mean by "poor" I can't give you anything more than some ideas.

Coolplix S210 can't take photo in flash mode

The flash is trying to charge. Try a freshly charged battery in the camera. If that doesn't work, go into the options menu and set them to factory default. Try the camera again. If that doesn't fix it, there is a defect in the camera.

My ps3 wont power up

try powering the system up by HOLDING the on;off button , it will reset all your audio and video settings . then plug the system using the AV cables (default) .

else, you should take it to an assastance centre for hardware issues checking . can be a problem with your RAM or GPU units that makes the system unable to startup it's firmware .

Help flash Nixon coolpix L11

hello,

make sure when you press the round selection button on the back of the camera flash option, you press the ok in the center of the button on the back.

it will show brief yellow AUTO in the LCD screen upper right corner for a sec.

when you are going to take a picture holding the shutter button half way down, you should see up at the right corner outside of the LCD screen a red led flashing to indicate flash is ready.

one thing to try if this is not working, find the camera reset option in the menu. after doing this you may have to reset the date & time. it will bring the camera back to default settings

on the bad side if these dont work, possible flash circuit may have failed inside the camera.

good luck!

Hi,

I had the same problem with the Nikon 3200 Coolpix, the flash only worked with certain mode, as scene mode. I solved the problem doing a RESET ALL that is in SET UP menu.
