    Default LX3 and its internal flash. Pls advise

    Hi,

    I have a prob with my LX3. I can't seem to activate the flash mode whenever i press the "flash" button in IA or manual mode. This is inspite of me opening the external flash slot.

    Can anyone advise?

    Disable Burst Mode.

    LX3 flash cannot work when Burst Mode is enabled.

    The Burst Mode button is the dustbin button.

    There's a sensor to the flash...it it is bright enough it won't fire the flash.

    post pictures when the flash failed to fire, then we can know what is wrong, i.e. situation where it doesn't work.

    the possibilities are endless..........

    Default Re: LX3 and its internal flash. Pls advise

    I was in a club and it was dark. The camera was on auto mode and the flash fail to fire despite trying manual, auto or IA....

    Plus there was a sign of the "flash off" that could not be removed despite pressing the the flash button and flipping the flash up.

    Hope I am clear on explanation.

    TIA for any replies

    Could it be on forced off mode? Press the flash manu button and check the setting.

    Check your flash and ISO setting. What setting were you using? This could cause the flash being disabled regardless your camera mode

    Why don't you do a master reset so that you're 100% sure that it's not a settings issue?
    Then set it to iA mode and see what happens.
