Answer to: Why won't the flash work when I take a picture?Sounds like the camera is trying to focus before shooting. Make sure you have focus lock by pressing half way down on the shutter release butting before finally taking the picture. The other problem might be it's auto-redeye reduction. Change to any setting other than "auto" and you should not encounter this problem.
