I can't turn my flash on?

I know HOW to turn the flash on, but it won't turn on. the flash icon flashes as if its warming up, but it turns to 'off' after a couple of seconds of flashing. i've fully charged the battery.

SOURCE: Why does the battery die after only two minutes?

this may depend on what batteries are being used or some error of the camera or its settings.

1 when this happens try to open the battery compartment and close it again after a few seconds and see if this resolves the problem.

2 test the batteries in some other device such as a torch or other device and see if they work in that if so it maybe a problem with your camera or its settings.

3 if you are using regargeable batteries check in your camera setting if there is a battery type setting and ensure it is set to the same as the batteries you are using.
it is wise to use NiMh or other rechargeable batteries with a high rating such as 1000 or 1800 mAh normal alcaline batteries may not have the power to operate the camera for long.

note: if the flash is being used this will also run down batteries quicker also if images or video clips are being viewed on the camera this will also cause faster battery usage. also if the camera is being switched on and off after each few shots this may also reduce bettery life through lens extension and retraction, it maybe better to leave the camera on longer than keep switcing it off see if you have a power setting and set the camera to switch off automatically after 3 minutes if not being used then to keep the camera open if shot opertunities are still ripe the just half depress the shutter button to keep the camera live. this may help.

if this does not improve then recommend to replace the batteries as they maybe defective or the camera go to a certifed agent for testing.

you may have placed the batteries the wrong way, or the batteries are empty. Or the contacts are not touching or may be dirty - clean them with the eraser end of a pencil.

Flashing green light


hello,are you sure that you have not left your camera flash on,and virtually killed off the battery?as the zig zag icon usually refers to mostly flash related aspects of most modern cameras,all cameras need a certain base level battery power,before they will switch on for use,but may well display all manner of icon's and oddity's when the power is all consumed.hope that helps, cheers.

Need to bypass the security fob. Won't start


You can bypass the fob IF you know the security code.

DO NOT sit on seat, lift bike off kick stand, or anything else that will activate the security mode!

Turn IGN to IGNITION.

Quickly (within 2 seconds) hold BOTH turn signal switches until confirmation signal (KEY icon flashes at fast rate, in odometer window, a flashing "-" will be followed by 4 more dashes = "----")

Enter 1st digit (a) in PIN by pressing LEFT turn signal switch (a) times (i.e., 5 times for the number 5)
The 1st "-" will become the 1st digit (i.e., "5")

Press RIGHT switch signal 1 TIME.
The 1st digit is stored and the dash will flash.

Enter 2nd digit (b), and repeat sequence until done.

After the 5th digit is entered, the KEY icon stops blinking, and the system is disarmed.

The system will stay off until the IGN switch is turned off.

If at any time during disarming sequence an error is made, wait 2 minutes before trying again.

1. Touch the flash function area (lightning bolt with downward-pointing arrow) until the flash icon with the "A" shows up on the left side of the display. This activates the automatic flash.

3. Touch the flash function area again the eyeball icon shows up on the left. This activates the red-eye reduction mode feature.

Camera fails to flash every time we take a picture


1.Turn off the camera.
2.Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera. then turn it ON
3.Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash. a86196b.jpg
4.Take a picture. [If flash still doesn't work contact Kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)]

I can't turn off the flash.


Using the Four Way Arrow Pad,

In Automatic Record mode, the UP ARROW controls flash mode. Press it a couple of times until you see in your screen the flash icon or the "lightning icon" with slash as if stating a "no flash" mode.

Hope this works for you. Let me know of any question.
