My flash is not working - Kodak Digital Cameras


Answers :

This is an internal failure and could be that the main flash unit is faulty within the camera. Since the trigger of the flash comes from the control unit of the camera it can be probed only by opening of the camera as nothing can be done from the outside.
\015\012So if you can open the camera then using a multimeter check the power to the flash unit. If the power is present observe if there is any capacitor leak or damage. Use the meter to check for the trigger during the operation of the shutter or use a false trigger with a probe voltage. check if the invertor is working to charge up, if not the unit is faulty and must be changed.
