Optio E70 problem


I'm new here so please bear with me if my topic has been discussed before.
I have a recently purchased Optio E70 camera. I have noticed that whenever I use flash, the picture is darker than without using flash. I have tried changing some settings but to no avail. Is there a specific setting that needs to be tweaked or is that phenomena normail?


Though unrelated I had problems registering as this website said my IP address was a known spammer address although i have never visited this site before. I had to go through a proxy to even register. Mods or Admin or whoever has the power, could you un-blacklist my IP thanks.

Theres a few potential issues at work.

First, p&s flashes are weak. Are you taking a picture of something far away (further than 20 ft)? if so move closer. Camera's can't capture a picture if its not actually lit.

thats my short diagnosis. The long one would be very confusing and unhelpful if your not familiar with photography beyond a p&s level.
