Why isn't my flash working on my digital camra?

I don't know why it isn't working I have tried every function on my camra and I can't get the flash to work. I am due to have a baby in almost 4 weeks and I really want this camra working so I can take pictures that way I can put them on my facebook page and not have to get a camra and take them to get developed before putting them on. I don't have money to buy enough right now. Can you tell me why it might not be working? Everything else on tha camra works just the flash wont work. The camra is about maybe 3 years old.

  • that's what I own is a Kodak Easyshare. It might need to go to the repair shop. Haven't had a prob with the flash yet except for not hitting the flash button or having it turned to a setting to use flash on. that was my own stupidity

  • I googled some ideas, and this one was posted by SGNath at fixya.com:
    As a first step, make sure the batteries are fully charged and check in the Shooting menu if you have switched the flash to 'off' mode. Then check the shooting mode. In some shooting modes (like landscape), some cameras do not fire the flash. To check if the flash is working properly, change the mode to 'Night Portrait' and try to shoot. This mode is sure to fire the flash if everything is well with the camera. If still the flash is not working, take it to the nearest authorized service center.

  • Make sure the flash isn't shut off in the menu

  • I have made sure the flash isn't shut off. I also thought it was the charge so I charged it completely and it still isn't working
