Answers :

\012Let's try some troubleshooting steps to resolve the issue with the Flash in the Camera. The Flash in the Camera will work only with the settings which is selected.
\0121. Make sure that the Camera flash is set to Forced Flash ON. (Press the right arrow control button of the Camera continuously to select the Forced Flash to ON.
\0122. The Flash in the Camera cannot be used when the REC MODE of the Camera is set to BURST or EXPOSURE BRACKET. (To select the REC MODE, select Menu button in Camera Shooting Mode. Set the REC MODE to NORMAL).
\0123. Flash will not work with modes like ISO(High Sensitivity Mode), Twilight Mode, ISO+(Extra High Sensitivity Mode), Fireworks Mode.
\0124. Try to set the Flash Mode to Flash Forced ON when the Mode dial is set to M, Landscape mode, Beach Mode, and Scene Mode.
\012This will resolve the issue with the Flash in the Camera.
