Answers :

Most likely you have set the camera to the auto mode and you are shooting in a place with plenty of light.
your camera has a sensor which activates the flash when needed.
you can set the camera to the manual mode so that you can chose the flash to work even in the day.

My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.

The built-in flash on my nikon d70s does not always fire. sometimes this goes on for quite a few frames before it functions again. and often when it does decide to "wake up" it fires way too hot -- even in TTL. I'm not using the continuous shooting mode, so what could be the problem? shutter count near 15k clicks
