Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S200 Digital Camera ?

Flash camera takes picture but only without flash. when flash it only blinks and doesnt take pic


Answers :

Hey liz2007,
\015\012 Some scene modes don't allow the flash to be used such as landscape, sports, sunset, dusk/dawn, night landscape, museum, fireworks, and copy modes. If anti-shake mode is selected the flash will not fire, and if the camera is set to continuous shooting mode the flash will not fire. I hope this helps!

By shutting camera off and on was able to get to the review setting and viewed the 80 pics. stored; that was yesterday. Today I get the c:13:01 code on each camera mode and review setting only shows the 2 pics from yesterday, then blue screen, though as I push the review button the on screen picture nu

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain

My camera was dropped and since then it won't take pictures using the flash. The screen keeps saying "F 2.8 1/45" while the flash is charging, but never takes a picture. The camera takes pictures fine without the flash. What does this mean?


This means the flash or flash circuitry broke due to the drop. The camera will take pictures as long as the flash is not required. Only resolution is to have the camera repaired, which unfortunately may cost more than the camera is worth. ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

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?

My Pentax W90 camera won't stop taking pictures when I turn it on. At first, it would take 2 pictures without me pressing the shutter and the screen would get "locked" (no menu or other buttons would do anything). Then, after changing the battery, the camera continually takes pictures until I turn it off. The flash goes off with each picture. I took it in the ocean with me and I noticed it started while I was snorkeling. I don't think I got anywhere near the 20 foot depth limit. I dried it

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

Photos delete if i turn the camera off . I turn it on, and it says "26" on the screen, meaning i can take 26 pics. i'll take maybe 4 and turn it off. If i turn it on again, it will read "26" again and sure enough, when i connect it to the pc no pictures are detected. The only time i can upload pics from the camera is if I take the pics and connect it to the pc asap without turning it off.
