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?

I have a Vivitar 8018 camera. Will the camera automatically use a flash if it is necessary or do I have to do something to get it to flash?


Yes and no. The camera will use the flash if it thinks it's necessary. Unfortunately, what the camera thinks and what you think may not be the same. Often indoors, you won't be allowed to use flash, or you may get better results without flash, so you ... Vivitar ViviCam 8018 Digital Camera

Internal memory?? some how my pics got deleted. my friend thinks they might be stored in the cameras internal memory and not on my compact flash card. so i took out the momory card and pluged in the cable to my camera and computer....but nothing happened. does the canon power shot A75 have internal memory? if not then why did i get a cable? i can just use my compact flash to to view my pics on the computer right?

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 have just purchased a KWorld DVD Maker 2 and set it up as per instructions and the DVD Maker itself says by pushing the button it will start flashing blue, well this does not happen and it gets very hot. I have the bigger usb end plugged into computor while my Sony video camera has only two female outlets 1 yellow the other black so I insert two cables with male adaptors to install. Where do the other leads go to or are they for other appliance uses. Please advise as I am getting frustrated


The 1 yellow and 1 black female outlets are likely for RCA Phono jacks and older VCR connections. DVD Maker sounds like you would use a camera that has USB cable to the computer and the computer writes DVDs using the Kworld DVD Maker 2.\015\012 ... Digital Cameras

Photos can't be downloaded to iphoto as per usual. Instead only print option is offered on the camera screen. Can't get it to offer any other option. Once, iphoto used to open automatically once you connected the usb cable between camera and laptop. That stopped happening some time ago but pix could still be transferred by selecting iphoto manually.

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

I have a Pentax K 100 D. I have tried using a Flash Memory card (a Sandisk Ultra 16GB) but without success. The message 'Memory Card Error" is displayed even before I could format it. The card had previously been used to store files from my PC (where it worked perfectly) but the camera could not format it even after I had removed all the files etc by reformatting it in the PC (FAT32). Is there any way I can get to use this flash card in my camera?

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.

We are now on our 3rd 5.0 bushnell night sentry camera and the night pictures are black. With the second camera, we might get the first picture where the flash goes off, but the subsequent ones are black. We have replaced batteries and also have a solar panel.

Canon T3i thinks that there is an external flash attached and will not allow use of the built in pop up flash. I have tried putting on the external flash and turning it off while it is on the camera and literally every combination of the sort to try and see if I can get the camera to realize that the flash is no longer there.

There is a pin in the hot shoe that operates the external flash switch on the bottom of the top cover. It is probably stuck down - maybe by sticky liquid spillage. Clean with a toothbrush and windex and see if it will then pop up. ... Canon EOS 600D Rebel T3i Digital Camera

Camera vibration I've had the camera for over a year. Some time ago I started to notice the vibration problem, but it would stop after a few seconds. It has been gradually getting worse. This past weekend I was using it to take pictures when it started vibrating and would not stop unless I turned off the camera or put it into view mode. Right now it is working but I'm worried the same thing will happen in the future. Don't know if it is something I need to get fixed or if it is more worthwh
