My flash no longer works. When I press half-way down, the image on my screen looks as if the subject is lit up, but when I take the picture the flash does not work. Could the flash bulb be burned out? What can I do to fix this problem?
The bulb is most likely the problem, but it could be the high voltage capacitor that triggers the flash bulb, or possibly the transformer that charges the capacitor. I would bring it to a camera shop to see if the bulb replacement will do the trick. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera
My Kodak Easyshare V530's flash doesn't work anymore. The only way i can get a SEMI decent picture inside, is if all the lights are on and I turn the brightness on the camera up to +2.0. I was wondering if it's possible to find and replace the bulb inside? Or if it'd be easier/cheaper to buy a new camera?
The flash is controlled by a large capacitor and it can be either that or the bulb. You cannot do it yourself as it is located behind the LCD screen and there is a lot of disassembly involved. Your local camera tech can fix it for you at a decent cos ... Digital Cameras
I can't take a picture with the flash. Everytime I set it to flash mode and I hold down the button and I think it's the ready light that stays light but it doesn't take a picture. I had one of my friends take a look at they said that my flash bulb is probabally out. Is there anything I can do without having to replace the bulb?
My wife's A550 stopped its flash for no good reason. I put two fresh batteries in and there was no improvement. I then gave it a smal tap on our kitchen table - on the opposite side to the flash - and it started working again.\015\012\015 ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera
I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark. My flash card is a CompactFlash 4GB Hi-speed 40 so I dont understand why it take so long for the flash to go off between shots. Giving an example of time, during a wedding the bride and grooms walks out "good shot" then the rest of the party with about 5 pews between them and I cannot get the whole wedding because the flash
The 430ex flash is E-TTL, that means it adapts is power to the scene. If you shoot a scene at 10 meters, the flash will choose to flash at the max power, and will take time to recharg. Try to get closer to your subject, and remember that the flash ca ... Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera

Flash problem So, I set the camera to 'Flash On'. I take a picture and the flash goes off for about a quick second. I look at the picture and it's nothing but a black background, sometimes white where I can only slightly see the object I took the picture of. What's wrong with my camera? This only happens sometimes, by the way. Sometimes I take a picture and everything's normal.
The CCD element has been a great problem in this camera along with a faulty iris in the lens. I would return the camera to the Sony facility in Laredo, TX and let them know the exact symptom you are having. I see many of these cameras being repaired ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Bright pictures I have had my Sony Cyber Shot (DSC-S650) for about 6 mo.

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
Digital camera When I take pictures they seem to have a lot of blue in them. For instance grass is greenish blue instead of green. Is there a way to adjust the color? Without the flash pictures are to dark and if I use the flash inside it washes out faces. When I take the photos into photoshop I can adjust the colors but the washed out faces are still there. Most of the pictures are blurry. Is there a solution for this? Is there a solution for this or do I chalk it up to a cheap camer

Pictures with a flash are way overexposed. It just started this so I am sure there is something wrong with the flash. Pictures without a flash are fine

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

I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal lines across the picture. It is much worse if there is any natural light coming into the picture. I have tried adjusting the flash, the white balance, but the pictures are still coming out this way. Also, if there is a good amount of natural light, you can't see the object you at all, it looks
