    hi guys i have a problewm with my gf1 and was wondering if someone experienced something similar.

    i recently tried to take a picture with the internal flash, the red flash icon (auto flash) in the corner kept on flashing and i dont think it built up a charge for it to flash. after a couple of seconds of holding the shutter, it took the picture without the flash and then the message "Please turn off the camera and turn on again" (to that effect)....i seen this issue happen (googled it) from their lower compact end cameras, never on the gf1,

    so what does this mean? is my internal flash on the gf1 dead?

    what can i do in this situation?

    thanks for reading!
