    Hi all.
    Just bought an used P7100 in good condition. Very pleased for now but I have one problem: the flash pops up but does not fire. When it's popped up and I press the shutter button, the light on the left side of the viewfinder becomes red and everything works well, only the flash doesn't fire.
    I've tried all I could think about but nothing. If I put a SB600 it works well, but with its built in flash nothing.
    Any suggestions or do I have to send it to service.
    This is the only issue the camera has.

    I know nothing about the P7100, but with my Samsung EX1, the flash doesn't fire in burst mode, only in single shot mode. Could that be it? Is the flash symbol on the lcd active when you try to shoot with flash?
