Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.

My canon powershot s3 IS is taking really dark pictures. The only decent pictures I can take with it are outside in sunlight. Pics indoors come out dark and grainy. I flip up the flash, but most of the time the flash doesn't go off, like there is enough light. And then when it does go off, the picture is way too bright. Help please!!

This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camer ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Uneven flash Hi, my Nikon d40x has a problem with its flash when I rotate it, for example, to take a picture of someone standing. Only the left side of the frame illuminates, and the right side of the picture is dark. However, when I use the camera horizontally, the flash works fine and illuminates evenly. What am I doing wrong?

Look carefully at your images taken with flash... on the horizontal image is the lower part of the image slighty darker and have a rounded fall off at the edges? Is the vertical image dark side a straight hard line or is there a rounding to the top ... Nikon D40X Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Flash flickers... I have a Sony Cybershot, and I always have the flash on. Now whenever I take a picture the flash never goes, it flickers a little bit but not enough to get a good picture. Its on normal setting, not on burst. Do I have to replace the bulb or what do i do?

I honestly never came across anyone who had a flash replaced usually because most companys flat rate out of warranty repairs at 100-125 dollars-if it's a p series camera it sounds like the flash is dying or the battery is worn out and not supplying p ... Digital Cameras
