Pentax Optio T20 Flash Problem

Hi All,

New to this site and just looking for a bit of help with my Pentax.

I've got an Optio T20 - so fairly old in today's market, has worked fine for a number of years but now the flash has started to play up.

If I take a picture the flash only partially 'discharges' so get half a flash and the picture is very dark. Strangely the flash seems to work better when taking a picture with more light in it. Sorry Im really not a techy person so it might be something obvious. I've tried changing the settings to Flash On instead of Auto Flash but it makes no difference.

Thought I'd find out if theres a simple solution to this before I think about scrapping it.
