    No Flash on 8900 camera

    Advertisement



    Last night was with family and friends around a bonfire having some drinks and decided to take some pictures. So pulled out my curve and got the camera ready, did its autofocus then....no flash! I tried it multiple times and I checked my options and set the default flash setting to on and still nothing (girlfriend making fun of me by now since she has the storm). So I'm wondering is it the os? I already did a battery pull and still nothing? Any ideas? Oh and my battery was pretty decent.

    I doubt it's the OS if you have the original that came with it. My guess is the drinks.

    flash problem

    I am going to assume that you never altered your stock flash setting which means the flash will only go off unless "it" thinks it needs additional light. You mentioned you were around a campfire so was the campfire in the picture? If so you camera was reading the light output from your fire, thus no flash. You can change your options while in the camera mode, however if you do, remember you battery life will dimish faster.

    Well I changed it to on and tried it again in the dark but still nothing, this is getting on my nerves.

    I know what you mean about the flash. I was at a restaurant and tried taking a pic of my mom across the table and the flash did not go off. The place was dimly lit. Its a little annoying. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.
