Answers :

Have you tried to reset the camera back to factory defaults to see if it is maybe a setting that has the flash disabled? To reset the camera: go to Menu - left arrow to reset and press ok. Highlight yes and press ok. This will put the camera in factory default settings. See if the flash works now. If you see a red squiggly flash arrow blinking on the screen constantly, this is actually a repair issue and the camera would need to be serviced to replace the flash charging indicator switch. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

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

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

Within the last few days, suddenly when I take a picture a picture there is a little red eye that is flashing on the left hand of the screen and the little green light at the top is flashing also and there is hesitation of about 15 seconds before a picture is taken and then the picture will have a redish tint to it when it processes. This just started and I have changed batteries out and powered the camera on and off several times and I have checked all of the settings, and still cannot figure

It sounds to me that the timer is on. That would certainly explain the blinking lights and the 15 second delay. There should be a button with what looks like a small clock on it to turn this feature on and off. You should also be able to find it i ... Digital Cameras

Screen border On my Fuji S700, pictures used to fill the entire screen when i took and reviewed them. Now, my screen has black border lines on the top and bottom of the screen. When I upload pictures, they are wider from left to right, and thinner top to bottom. When I get them printed, the sides get cut off. How do I get the border thing off?

I have a samsung S85 camera that fell in a sink full of water for only a split second. I removed the batteries and left it to dry out but it does not work. It comes on but a red light on the left side of the LCD screen flashes and the camera does nothing. Can it be fixed? Is the screen bad now?

My Flash stop working, do i need to replace it? The built-in flash does not stay up. I can hear the clicking sound when it wants to pop up, but it stays in place. At this point it's pretty easy to open it manually, so I noticed what it seems to be a small spring on the right hand side. I guess it is there to hold the flash and it looks like it is off it's place. Is there a picture somewhere of how it is supposed to assembled? Thanks in advance, Gene

Check that the pins in the camera that connect to the CF card are clean and not bent. You will probably need a good light and a magnifying glass to see into the card slot. If you can see a pin that is bent you could try straigtening it. BEWARE- turn ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
