When you dropped it one of the circuit boards inside may have cracked, or one of the connections may have severed. This could be potentially dangerous, since the flash circuit accumulates 300 to 500 volts! I would have it checked, but if it's not real new and/or under, say US$150-200, it probably won't be worth fixing. You can check the manufacturer's website for service options.

The flash is not working anymore. how can i replace it?

Hi, Check your setting for when you take photo's inside or outside. In dark areas the flash should come on. Check and /or replace batteries. Good luck.
Take a picture in a dark room and see if flash comes on.

The problem is that u know the sony hdv xr500x when u put it on the picture is very dark we have tried it under light too put but the picture is still dark

Hello
When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

Pictures are to dark

In order to adjust the ISO; please go into the Menu (Capture+ tab) and set the ISO for 64, 100 or 200 in order to reduce the darkness. However this will lead to slower shutter speeds in low light.

Also try different SCN and ISO to see if problem still persists.
If the problem is intermitted, try to find a pattern in to when the faulty pictures appear.

My son dropped it and the flash no longer works. Pictures still look great outside but all inside pictures are super dark. How easily is the flash replaced and what is an estimated cost so I can plan to...

Contact kodak if you want an estimate for repairs.

If your camera can change the exposure, exposure settings. You could just change it so your camera can absorb more light in dark places.

Picture comes out dark

Reset you cam settings: Take the batt out for longer than 10 sec and reinsert them.

Find a link between the SCN that are dark and blurry and the ones that aren't. Is it when using flash taking pics outside or inside in certain modes etc.

Flash

I gave the lense part of the camara a moderate slap, and the camara has worked fine since. looks like a lot of people have the same problem. Most of the people call it black screen problem. the shutter gets stuck. Tap it a few times on the side of the lense part of the camara moving it from bright to dark objects back and forth.
good luck.

I have a Canon SRL Rebel 1.5 years old and the flash stoped to work. If I am taking pictures inside the house the pictures are dark( you can see the subject but is dark)and the flash does not activate....

The flash mechanism is broken. You will have to either take the camera to a repair shop or buy a new one. It could get pretty expensive to fix that. Also I would check with the manufactorer too see if you have any type of warranty left.
