Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N1 Digital Camera ?
Flash always off
\015 I have a cybershot DSC-N1. All else works perfectly but the flash icon shows it's always in the no flash position, whether in the auto mode, program mode or other modes. And the flash does not go work when the picture is taken indoors and in low light situations (in all modes).\015\012\015\012Have tried taking out the battery and restarting with no improvement.\015\012\015\012Hoping this is not an expensive repair.\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance for your support\015\012\015\012Jeff\015

On some Cyber Shot model, flash can be disabled from menu, that can be the cause. If you do not get any additional error message the camera should not be faulty, probably it is just a setting problem.

The problem is with the flash. When set on “auto” the flash will always go on during the day, when the conditions are great. I always have to set it to off. At night, no matter what settings I have, the camera on, the flash opens and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. No matter what I do, sometimes it just won’t flash.

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges
I don't know if this will help and this post is two months old. The \015\012camera store may be right that the synchronization is the issue which \015\012tends me to point a finger at the external flash. There are at least \015\012three different fla ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
I bought a camera from a friend, Olympus e-420. but when i started to use it, i always got dark picture even the flash is already switched on. i'm thinking the built-in flash is delayed, do i have way to make it more accurate? i also noticed when i take pictures it always save's as ORF file. how can i change this settings to a different format? i already tried restoring the default settings but why can't i access the Custom Reset option on the menu bar?

Exposure problem I have just purchased a Canon 40D. When shooting in Manual mode with an external flash, (photogenic) my exposure always looks correct thru the lcd but it always flashes -2 no matter what setting I have the camera on. What am I missing? I am relying on the camera's reading as my light meter is broken.

Flashes twice Is there any way of setting the flash not to flash twice, but just once? I find when taking pictures of people, they pose for the first flash, then look away by the second flash so most of my photos are of blurred faces. I now have to warn everyone to wait for the second flash, which doesn't always work! Thanks

External Flash I set my Epson 3100z camera to manual mode and set up the camera for external flash. I manually set the shutter speed to 1/60 sec and the aperture to F4. I also set my SunPak flash to F4. My exposures seem pretty good. However when I review the various photo info's, the aperture reading is F5 or F4.8 not the F4 I set. Why is this? Anyone experienced this? The shutter speed are also not always what I set on the camera.

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

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?
