Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens
My d60 is only 4 months old. everything else seems to work fine except for the built-in flash. sometimes it fires, sometimes it doesn't. when the camera indicates the need for the flash, it deploys but it doesn't fire, hence, the camera refuses to take the picture. i already took it back to the store where i bought it to have it checked. they said there was no problem. 8 out of 10 times i tried to use the flash, it didn't work. i've tried everything i could think of. i've tinkered with the settings, i even tested it with a newly-charged battery just to see if it just needed a fully-charged battery. it still didn't work. i'd appreciate your help very much. thanks!
Please shoot in P mode. In P mode it will use the flash if you pop it up and not use it if it is down.
The flash uses LOTS of battery power. If you battery is weak the flash may take a long time to recycle (charge).
The Flash must be popped up and READY before you can use it. The flash is charged or READY when the RED light is on.
I hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem
Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

I agree that 6 days is a very short life span for the flash. Your camera is defective and you should take advantage of the warranty since it's probably too late to return it.
