Please, which camera model? Are we talking about the external flash or one built in? If it is built in the camera may think there is not enough light thus setting the flash to fire. That is what auto does, it takes all the decisions away from the camera operator.

My coolpix s4000's flash isn't working. It works every now and then but is not consistant. The auto flash is on. What should I do? I've only had the camera for 2 months.

The "auto flash" setting lets the camera decide when it may need the flash for a picture, but it is not 100%. You can go to your flash menu and set it for "forced flash" or "always" and it will work every time, provided that you give it enough time to charge. When the flash icon is blinking, the flash is still charging and it will not fire.

How do I change the time on my TIMEX T307S clock?

Hello
To adjust time follow this.

Auto-Set Time and Date Settings

This model is equipped with the Auto-Set feature, meaning that the time and date have been programmed at the factory

and will already be set when you first plug the model in. Auto-Set will automatically adjust the time and date settings for

daylight-saving time and leap years. Auto-Set is programmed for Eastern Standard Time; if you do not live in this time zone,

you can easily switch the setting to one of six other time zones.

1. To change your time zone setting, press and hold the 8 Time Zone Button. The current Auto-Set Time Zone in the

lower-right-hand corner of the display will flash for approximately ten seconds, after which the display will revert to the

standard clock display.

2. While the Auto-Set Time Zone is flashing, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to select your time zone.

The display will show each zone's current time setting. There are seven zones to choose from:

Auto-Set Time Zones

Z-01 Atlantic Standard Time

Z-02 Eastern Standard Time

Z-03 Central Standard Time

Z-04 Mountain Standard Time

Z-05 Pacific Standard Time

Z-06 Alaskan Standard Time

Z-07 Hawaiian Standard Time

3. Find your time zone, then press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the

setting to lock into place.

Manual Time and Date Settings

1. To change your time setting, press and hold the J Time Set Button so that the clock display begins flashing.

2. While the display flashes, press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the time. Hold a button for a few

seconds to set the time rapidly. Be sure to set the correct AM/PM time, shown by the PM Indicator.

3. After setting the time, press the 4 Enter Button or wait about ten seconds for the clock to beep twice and the setting

to lock into place.

4. To change the calendar, press and hold the 9 Date/7-5-2 Button until the display shows the flashing year.

5. Press the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the current year. When you have selected the year, press the

4 Enter Button, then use the 1 Reverse and 6 Forward Buttons to set the month/day.
6. After you have set the date, press the 4 Enter Button or wait for the display to beep twice and lock into place.

My camera doesnt' work indoors. i try to take a picture and it doesnt' take when I'm in AUTO mode. However, when I'm in LANDSCAPE mode the pic will take. it seems like the flash isn't active in AUTO...

You must have a software glitch because the flash is supposed to be in the auto mode when the selector is in auto, unless you manually turn the flash off and the flash should go back to auto every time the camera is turned off and back on. Here's a work around. Turn the dial to indoor and use the flash button on the ring to set the flash to auto. In the indoor setting you can set the flash to on, off, or auto.

My minolta 5600hs flash does not flash all the time.

Is your Flash on Forced Mode or auto mode? If it's on Auto mode, the camera decide that flash work or not! but if it's on forced mode, I think there is a hardware problem... I hope this helps
