The flash on my camera will not work at all. In the top right of the display, a small symbol that says 'AWB' has appeared. Is there any way to make the flash work? If anyone can at least explain what the symbol means, I'd appreciate it.
Can't help on the flash problem. I have same problem and am loking for he solution also, but I can help o the "AWB" issue. AWB stands for Automatic White Balance. You can change in the "Menu" - "White Balance" function.

camera has a built in flash function which enables you to take photos when the
light condition is not good. 1.
Press the Up button. (for reference of buttons, please see the below figure mentioned) 2.
Press the Up button once until you see the icon appear on the LCD screen. This
indicates that the flash is forced on. 3.
Press the Up button again to change to the auto flash function. 4.
The icon will appear at the top of the LCD indicating that the auto flash is
turned on and ready to use. 5.
Press the Up button again to change from the auto flash to the red eye
The icon will appear on the LCD indicating that the red eye reduction function
has been activated. 7. To turn
off the flash function, press the Up button again until the icon is displayed
on the LCD. Note: A
“Low Power” message will appear on the LCD screen, if you select the flash
function when the battery power is insufficient. To continue
using the camera with the flash, please change new batteries
1.Turn off the camera. 2.Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera. then turn it ON 3.Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash. 4.Take a picture. [If flash still doesn't work contact Kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)]
That solution does not work on the T77.
I have the same problem and this is how I solved it.
Press the Menu button on the bottom left corner of the screen.
Go to the second page (2/3) select the "REC MODE" (it is the firrst choice)
Select your mode as normal and not burst and then exit the menu.
Now you should be able to activate the flash from the screen..
Hope it works for you as it did for me.
Just to the right of the Function button ("FUNC SET") there should be a button with a jagged, downward pointing arrow. It controls the flash mode. Pressing it cycles thru Auto-ON, ON, and OFF. You should see appropriate symbols appear in the display as you press the button.
In your display, is the small lightning symbol appear on the screen? Try cycling through the various flash options by pressing the "flash" lightning symbol to the right of the monitor. If the flash is set to flash when there's not enough light at the G9's descretion (with an "A" next to the symbol) then the flash may or may not go off. I oftentimes set the flash to go off all the time if the camera is not doing it automatically (with the A next to the symbol). Being in Auto mode versus the other preset exposure modes affect the flash options available too.
The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).
