I am using an Olympus E-500. and am trying to use the built in flash, set to one eight or to one sixty fourth of normal output, to trigger an external flash unit.

Flash I used to be able to switch the flash settings on the camera, when it's on 'auto adjustment', from on to off or automatic but now its just stuck on off and it doesn't allow me to change the settings.

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera. I have not had it that long and just use the IA mode and I know it worked before; can I reset the camera back to factory settings? I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.

I have a Nikon D300. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I assume it's a setting issue. In low light situations even with the flash I can't seem to stop action or even properly light things. I have had any kind of issue like this on a camera before. In situations where I should be able to handhold I am using a monopod. I know there is enough light to not have to handhold, I mean I am using the flash. Frankly even with available light this should not be an issue.

Pictures always come out blurry and/or the lighting is awful regardless of what "scene" i choose. The only one that works "okay" some of the time is "portrait" scene. I don't know if I hit something by accident under a different menu that changed a setting. Also I thought this camera was supposed to be able to do that "multi-shot" function where is takes several snapshots when you take a picture. I have a wedding to attend and I'm so frustrated!

I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 that I can't get the flash to go off on. The only flash setting that works on my camera is no flash setting and the icon for the no flash symbol appears white. The rest of the settings such as automatic flash with red-eye, and automatic flash, ect... are red. Is this a settings issues or a repair issue? If it is a repair issue could you tell me what on the camera needs to be repaired. Weather it be the LED light is broken or a resistor or transistor on the circuit

External Flash I set my Epson 3100z camera to manual mode and set up the camera for external flash. I manually set the shutter speed to 1/60 sec and the aperture to F4. I also set my SunPak flash to F4. My exposures seem pretty good. However when I review the various photo info's, the aperture reading is F5 or F4.8 not the F4 I set. Why is this? Anyone experienced this? The shutter speed are also not always what I set on the camera.

The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

The problem is with the flash. When set on “auto” the flash will always go on during the day, when the conditions are great. I always have to set it to off. At night, no matter what settings I have, the camera on, the flash opens and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. No matter what I do, sometimes it just won’t flash.
