I have a FujiFilm FinePix S1, and my flash will not come on. The screen just says that it is off even when the flash is up to go off. What do I need to do to fix this?

Sorry I can,t help you , but I have a problem of my own. When switching camera on , the power comes on but screen stays blank as if shutter is jammed closed. The LCD screen comes up with all the menu. On the LCD screen a digital pic of a camera and explanation mark in RED. Any ideas as the camera is only 2 years old and hardly used
