Not true, pretty sure those have [DAILY SOLO] tags

Then I noticed a secondary mission, "[Tactical Flashpoint] Battle for Illum", removed that, and removed the story mission, got it again, and it turns out, talking to the NPC's for the story mission (for this mission its a bunch of generals), automatically gives you the [Tactical Flashpoint] version.

So I dropped only the Tactical Flashpoint mission, kept the story mission, talked to the droid next to the flashpoint entrance, which now had a quest triangle above his head, and lo and behold there was an option for solo flashpoint.

So that's it, if you don't get the Solo FP option, check your quest log, there might already be a Tactical FP that has been automatically granted to you, just by talking to a story/mission npc other then the droid/npc next to the FP entrance.
Drop that tactical one, but nothing else, and talk to the droid/npc next to the FP, it should now give you the option of a solo FP.
You might have to reset your flashpoints to gain entrance, but that's a minor inconvience.
This did not work for me. If I get the Empire Betrayed quest, it automatically has at the top that it is a group quest. I talk to the generals and they give the tactical flash point only so when I get their Battle of Ilum quest, it is for the tactical. If I abandon the tactical quest, the mission indicator does pop above the droid, he gives me the solo version, I get the droid thingie in my inventory BUT when I try to go through the screen, I get an error message that says it is a different level than what I have which is tied to the quest the generals gave me. If I abandon everything and just talk to the droid, he gives me solo quest version, I accept it, I try to enter and run into error message again. But there isn't anything in my mission log related to Ilum and I don't have any flash point quests for anywhere else in my mission log. This is frustrating, I have tried for 2 hours tonight trying to get in, I just want to finish the storyline on Ilum. What is especially frustrating is that I had just run my Knight through this with no problems last week. ARGH!
OK, I guess the trick is to get mad enough to figure another step out. Do as above person suggested, take generals' quest, drop tactical flashpoint, talk to droid and take solo one, key step for me was to right click on my portrait and reset all flash points. When I was trying to reset it through my mission log, it didn't do anything but the right click did. Good luck and thanks for the suggestion BlackFulcrum.

I spent a while trying to figure this out myself. I assumed that, since I was on the Jedi Prisoner quest, it would just default to story mode. I guess I can see why they didn't do it that way, in hindsight. But I wonder if this is working as indented. It seems to me that the smart thing would have been to add an extra objective check with the droid.

I'm having the same issue. I submitted a ticket regarding it.

I noticed some of the Flashpoints don't have a Solo Option at all.
Are these less story relevant or something? What makes the ones we have so special?
Sorry if this is obvious, I've only really just started up for the sake of the stories.

Thanks

I've been running around the Republic Fleet and the Telos ship, looking for the Flashpoint quest givers, and so far have only found the Esseles and the Tactical Flashpoints. I did the Esseles back when it didn't have solo mode, but have pretty much been skipping Flashpoints since. If I want to run all the solo mode flashpoints, am I going to have to run the Esseles solo first? Where on earth do I pick up the solo modes for low level flashpoints that I've way leveled over, anyone know?

Questgivers for Taral V and Jedi Prisoner are on the mission deck of the Telos, just outside the entrance to the instances.

Beware that solo flashpoints are currently not rewarding points toward conquest, despite the objective being "Complete Flashpoint: XXX on any difficulty mode".

I just wasted a couple hours doing them for nothing...
Dagoreth/Shadow - Martina/Sentinel - Sandrine/Commando - Silmara/Scoundrel
Jaysi/Gunslinger - Laranne/Sage - Lienke/Vanguard

Kischa/Juggernaut - Niobe/Assassin - Vixxa/Marauder

Cannot thank you enough for this - been trying to get into the solo mode for the "Jedi Prisoner" quest on my Smuggler for half an hour and turned to Google in desperation

I would classify this one as a definite bug in terms of how it works in quest progression.

I can't seem to be able to get into the Esseless Solo Run for some reason. It won't match my level to the flashpoint.

"...key step for me was to right click on my portrait and reset all flash points." This worked for me. Thank You!!!
