My cameras have all been P&S. I recently purchased the PL2. I wonder why it won't shoot in dark places (literally no light) even with the flash on. I am used to the P&S - no issue. I tried every flash setting from the manual. Am I missing something?

It's probably trying (and failing) to focus. Try switching it to manual focusing. (Or use some kind of focusing aid, like a flash light...)
