Nikon Coolpix L4 flash not working

\015 My Nikon Coolpix L4 flash has suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason! The camera still takes pictures and there seems to be no other problems, but I cannot get the flash to engage. I checked the flash settings to make sure it was on automatic flash and this still has not solved the problem. I've visited several camera repair sites and have not had any luck! please help?! I love this camera! Thanks so much!\015

Answers :

This has happened to mine a couple of times. I cannot select flash, and the blur indicator is on most of the time.
\015\012Solution is to go into 'menu', select 'SET UP' then 'reset all'. My flash selection then works again.
\015\012Since one doesn't tend to set much up with a basic camera like this, resetting shouldn't cause any issues.
\015\012Hope this helps
I have the same problem since I reboot my computer with the USB cable connected to the camera (and the camera was turned on...). During the reboot, the flash shot for the last time and then never worked again. The camera is ok for taking pictures without flash, just the flash doesn't work. People in specialized Nikon service told me that it would have to be replaced the circuit, so it doesn't worth for the price (almost the same as a new one). Is it possible to fix it?! It seems to be so simple... but I don't know... :-)

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


Sounds like you somehow put the camera in "airplane" mode which keeps the camera from interfering with the electronics on an airplane. Change the mode. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera

Screen Hi, My Nikon Coolpix s4 camera does not generate any image on the screen. I last used it 2 months ago. Then i kept it a a safe place and took it out again to find that the screen went completely blank when i start it. Although it displays the previously taken images stored on memory card, displays all menus, zoom works perfectly fine and the flash also works fine.


Get on to Nikon and let them know about it, it is a common problem with the S4. They are fixing the 3500 and others for free. \015\012\015\012 John. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

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?

I have a Nikon Coolpix 3100 and when I turn it on the flash indicator light and the light next to AF flash. Nothing else happens. I've put in new batteries and it still isn't working.
