Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L12 Digital Camera ?

Flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12

\015 The flash on my Nikon Coolpix L12 camera has stopped working. All pictures are taken without flash and if I press the flash button, nothing happens (no menu screen comes up, etc.)How do I get the flash to work again?\015

Answers :

I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

Hi, My Nikon Coolpix S3000 flash has stopped working after only 3 weeks of having the camera and an aeroplane icon is also showing on the display. I have had the camera at elevation and in humidity, but with a new camera I would think this would not be a problem. I have also charged the camera totally but the flash still does not work. Please advise me any fix. Many thanks Shelley

We purchased a Nikon Coolpix L4 some 18 months ago in Tenerife,which is working fine apart from the flash unit which no longer flashes, despite the light coming on. Local shops say repairs,if possible,are likely to be more than the camera is worth! Is this the end of the road?
