Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Flash Hello I am using the Nikon D50 The flash is not working. Is there a way to toggle the flash? Or to turn on the flash? Thank you


Answers :

It may be broken/blown, but there is a way to toggle the flash. There is a button located on the left-front of the camera , just left of the flash and above the lens. Hold it while scrolling the wheel on the right.

Best way to find out if it's broke or not: put your camera on Auto, go into a dark room, and take a photo. If the flash pops up and takes a shot w/o firing, you know it's broke. If it doesn't pop up at ALL, you've probably got a bigger problem

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera. I have not had it that long and just use the IA mode and I know it worked before; can I reset the camera back to factory settings? I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.

Hello. I have problems taking pictures with my Cobra DCA1030 indoors. The flash either seems to be entirely too bright or if I don't use the flash the picture is too dark. Pictures taken outdoors turn out fine but I wish I could use it indoors as well. I wasn't sure if there were any recommended settings that would make for better indoor pictures? Thank you, Jason S

Flash Problem Rebel XT flash icon shows next to "busy" in the view finder when I press the shutter button. If I attempt to take the photo the flash does not work. If I continue to hold the shutter half way down, then release it I get Err 99. I am using genuine Canon lens' and have tried all three. I also connected my 420EX external flash and it also does not flash. Any suggestions are deeply appreciated. Thanks

I have replaced the battery in my R707 (twice) but it won't take pictures. The message says "charging flash" and locks up the camera. The only way I can turn it off is to attach it to the computer and then turn it off. We have a big wedding upcoming and I need the camera to work. Please advise what the problem is and how or where to have it fixed. Thanks in advance. Susan Gillen

CF Light My camera was working fine, I turned it on this morning and snapped one picture, I noticed it did not show on the screen. The CF light is on and the number 252 is flashing in the little window. PLEASE tell me I just need a new card. I have used the same one for two years now and in about 30 countries, so my cam has been bounced around a bit. Thanks you so much. Q

After a little shock the camera still works, but: turns the pictures in a confused way, one is upsite down, the next on the left and so on. This would not be a big problem, but: after a short time the display ask for switch off and then to switch on the camera. What can I do to use my Lumix DMC-FX100 more comfortable? Thank you, E.B.

Camera problem My daughter just received a new HP635 camera for her birthday. At first the camera worked fine, but after a few minutes of use, the camera started flashing the welcome screen repeatedly and the zoom lense would move in and out over and over until we opened the battery storage compartment of the camera.

Just bought my used camera from Salvation Army. I know I shouldn't expect it to work, but it does in a way. I'd like to know why when I turn the camera on, the ready light flashes a few times (7, maybe), but does nothing else. I can't hear inside the camera to see if anything else is trying to function. I hooked the camera up to the computer, and nothing happened. Not sure if this is because I didn't install the CD needed.

Overexposure I have owned my Fujifilm S5000 for about 2 1/2 years. It has worked perfectly until the last couple of months. I have always used the flash when the camera told me to. Recently, the camera has been overexposing inside pictures when I use the flash. If I don't use the flash, it underexposes the picture. Any suggestions...ideas? I have moved fairly recently and can't find my manual anywhere. Thanks, Laurie

My flash is not working on my Canon PowerShot SX110 is camera. Help! My boss thinks the flash is turned off, but when I go to flash settings it says that red-eye and sync are both turned on. Basically I tried to use the camera outside the other night and the camera kept telling me to raise the flash even though the flash was up. The pictures were all blurry. I LOVE camera and am hoping for a simple solution.


... Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Digital Camera

The flash is either far too bright or not bright enough even when using the auto setting. The flash either doesn't flash at all on "soft flash" and then blinds people when the flash is turned on so it produces very dark faces or bright white images. I've tried using different scene modes but this does not seem to work.

My husband dropped my sony dsc-H10 in the river for a very quick swim. We let the camera dry out and it actually works great now, except for the flash. I can turn the flash on and it will click like the flash is working during a picture but it never lights up. I am wondering if there is an easy way to replace the flash or should i try to send it in for repair.


To remove and replace the flash unit is complicated and fraut with the unexpected. I would suggest that you take it for repair. Also this is not an underwater camera, so after a while expect problems from corrosion. If it was dried in a bowl of rice ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 Digital Camera

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp
