Problem when taking photos with flash

I have been experiencing problems with this camera when taking photos with the flash on. It was given to me second hand so I am not sure if it is an ongoing problem or not. The problem is that whenever I take a photo with the flash on it appears fine on the screen but when I upload it on to the computer it has a thin black line through the middle of the photo (vertical when the photo is taken portrait and horizontal when in landscape.) I have checked the lens and there doesn't appear to be anything on it. It also doesn't occur when not using the flash. I tried to take photos of a piece of paper to see if that would tell me anything but it didn't! The problem also only seems to occur when using the flash in the dark as having it turned on in normal light didn't seem to affect the photo. I would be extremely grateful if anyone knows why this might be??!!! Thank you

Whenever i on the camera some sound is coming while taking pictures only,it is not coming when iam looking the snaps after that

Camera noise can be common during autofocus, image stabilization, and of course pressing the shutter release. It seems possible that the noises you noticed are part of normal the normal photo taking process, since you only hear them when taking a photo, not when reviewing photos (a process which doesn't use autofocus, image stabilization or the shutter release).

If you're not experiencing any problems taking photos, the sound may just be part of normal camera operation. However, if you're still concerned, I recommend you take your camera to your local camera store to have an expert listen to the sounds.

Sir i have purchased nikon p100 camera from croma stores belapur branch , the problem with the barrel and there were gear noise and on taking photos in dark back ground of moon there were several white...

You have to know the MODE your camera is in. If you have it in the wrong mode you may not be able to take a photo in some conditions. You typically cannot take a photo of the moon on any auto setting the moon will be a white blob. The moon almost has to be taken manually.

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.

NIKON Coolplix S210 can't take photo in flash mode

If the flash is on and you can't take photos, it could be that the flash circuit has gone bad. Make sure the camera is focused first though, before you try to take the pictures. Many times if the camera can't focus on something, it wont take a picture.

Day time photos are white and other photos are not natural, either reddish or yellowish.

Please readjust the ISO.
In order to find a pattern please experiment: For example: Try Different SCN (If you're experiencing this problem with your night pictures try and use SCN night, the logo shows a moon and a star, with or without Flash.

Pictures that I take come out very white/bright. you cannot tell details. I have changed batteries and have the setting on auto.

Double-check your flash settings. You mentioned the camera is in Auto mode, but the flash has separate settings from the camera's shooting mode. With the camera in shooting mode AUTO check the Flash settings (Auto, Red-Eye Reduction, Fill-In, Off) It may be set to 'fill' causing your photos to be too bright.

Also, depending on how close you are to your subject the flash may not be needed. Using the flash when too close to your subject (less then 3 ft.) will cause bright/white photos. Turn the flash OFF if you are taking macro or photos closer then 3ft.

If neither of these fix your problem, turn the flash mode OFF, and camera shooting mode to AUTO and in a naturally well lit area, take a photo, if the photo is still too bright, you may have something mechanically wrong with your camera.

Nikon S210 flash not working

The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

K100D flash doesn´t work

My camera with the dodgy flash is holidaying in Japan as they sent it to be fixed - not sure how old your camera is but I am trying to see if this is an issue that occurs with the camera model.... given that there are only two of us to date I am thinking that we may have just struck the jackpot :(

Focus and blurred pictures

Blurry no flash indicated photos in low light condition therefore slow exposure leading to camera shake remedy - use a tripod

Burn out with flash in foreground is not uncommon if you are focusing to distant object - the flash is calculating for max throw..
