I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?
Please reset camera through Reset option in Menu. This will set camera on default settings and any glitch in settings will be removed.Thanks. ... Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

I've got an A-75 digital (Canon) When pushing down on the shutter button, the orange light is on next to the viewing window. It will not take a photograph and the flash does not work. I looked through the manual and it said something about the flash charge. When I attempt to take a photo the image has green squares throughout the viewing screen as if they are focusing screens. I also tried to reformat the camera with the new memory card. NO Luck. Any suggestions?

Nikon Coolpix L14 digital camera was dropped recently. Since then, when flash mode is set to AUTO, shutter-release button must be pressed several times to take a picture. If flash mode is OFF, shutter-release button takes a picture the first time pressed.

Digital camera When I take pictures they seem to have a lot of blue in them. For instance grass is greenish blue instead of green. Is there a way to adjust the color? Without the flash pictures are to dark and if I use the flash inside it washes out faces. When I take the photos into photoshop I can adjust the colors but the washed out faces are still there. Most of the pictures are blurry. Is there a solution for this? Is there a solution for this or do I chalk it up to a cheap camer

I have a Canon Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and tried all modes expecting that the ones listed in the manual as using a flash would work, but they dont, it never pops up. I lifted up the flash with my fingernail manually, and then tried taking a picture where a flash was most definitely needed, but it still had a long delay, no flash, and
