Turn the turnstile onto a setting like scenic. Then try to take a picture. If it is still dark you might need to get someone to check it out. Your exposure could be too low.

I have an old Sunpak 3075G Thyrisistor circuitry Flash that I used to use over 15 years ago, I recently got interested in Digital SLR photography and went to try it out the other day but I have a problem The flash refuses to fully charge up. Even with new batteries , it just continues to emit a high pitch hum usually associated with it recharging, but the ready light will not come on at all. When I try to push the mainual flash button I get no operation so I presume its not charging itself.

My Canon EOS XTi keeps giving me an 05 error code which means that the pop up flash was impede . It does this every time even though I have made sure there is no obstruction at all. I tried gently to pop up the flash by hand but it won't budge and I am afraid to damage it by forcing it. Is there I lock on it somewhere that I don't know about? It says nothing at all about the issue in the operator's manual. Thanks, Bill

Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine. All of this in the same setting with the same subject and everything else a constant too.  Help please, it seems like I must be doing something wrong either that or my camera is broken. P.S. it is brand new Amber

No that isn't it but I am not offended. The flash in fact looks like it goes off but at 10% of the full strength. I had other people try to take a picture to see if the same thing happened to them and it did and I saw them, they did not have their ha ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
