I was trying to take some inside photos in my house yesterday, with Forced Flash, but the flash didn't fire on every shot - as I believe it's supposed to. When it didn't fire, I got very underexposed photos, with a white balance that must have been either daylight or flash, because they were very warm toned (incandescent lighting was on in the room). I tried auto flash as well and it didn't have any better luck. Battery was fully charged, wasn't shooting in burst mode, I tried P,S,A settings (shooting raw), all to no avail. Oh, and I deleted the pictures, so I can't post them or check EXIF. Maybe I'll try again today. Any guesses? Is it an Operator Error? Any experience with Panasonic Service? Thanks.


Edited to add that I checked EXIF on several images in Bridge that were completely black, and that I know the flash DIDN'T fire, but the EXIF data shows that the flash fired - in whatever flash mode I had selected. I'm thinking there's a problem with the flash unit.
