D750 flash. Why does it always switch on?

I've noticed my D750 always seems to want to put on the flash, even in daylight.

If I turn the flash off, next time I come to use the camera, it will pop the flash up in anythnig but extreme sunlight?

Is there some setting somewhere that's making this happen?

Please read your manual. In particular, see page 180 and several pages that follow to see how to set up the built-in flash including how to disable the flash popping up.

In fully automatic mode (green sector on the mode switch ring), when the lighting is considered insufficient by the camera, the flash will always fire after each switch off and on. Or use auto mode without flash, or start exploring other camera modes P, A, S, M.

You are in the auto mode with auto flash. The camera is doing exactly what you are asking of it.

Perhaps it is time to unwrap the user manual?

Use the camera on “P” mode and experiment with the controls. The flash won’t pop up unless you touch the flash button. This mode is still mostly automatic, although you can change focus modes and other modes. It’s a good place to start.

Use P, A, S, or M modes, if you do not want the camera to decide when to use flash.

By accident of availability, I learned to use Canon and Nikon DSLRs at the same time. I love specific lenses made by both Canon and Nikon, too much to quit either system. Since 2018, Leica-M has been my “mirror-less” system. I am, certainly, not an expert.
