It's Christmas Eve, and I need my camera to work tomorow night!
Flash will not go on no matter what setting I put it to. I select the flash to come on and when I take a picture, it doesn't flash. Not to mention taking pictures in daylight or inside, they come out really dark. Almost bin time?

First of all, don't use the flash...it's only good for a short distance. Obviously, you need a fast shutter speed to stop the action. To get this to happen while in auto mode, you will need to set the ISO to a higher number such as 800 or 1600. You will need to take a couple of test shots to find the correct setting.
Shots like this are tough to get with a point and shoot camera.
The best way is to set the exposure around 1/15 or lower, if you can adjust ISO use the highest ISO setting the camera will allow. You will need to hold the camera very still, so a tripod or other solid object to steady the camera with will help lots. Sometimes pushing the shutter moves the camera, so try using the self timer. A tripod with the self timer is the best way to go, and experiment with different shutter speeds. Start with the longest the camera has and go up.
You can also try the flash, but the flash modes that really work aren't available unless you get an SLR.
If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.
However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.
The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.
Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.
