Canon pc1251 flash won't fire


If it even won't fire in a manual mode, when it is dark and you did press the flash button, it could be defect. Be aware that in some Basic Zone modes the flash won't fire. If you did put it in sport and in a few other modes it won't work. So try it in dark and don't forget to switch the flash on.

Rebel T3i built-in flash does not fire


Most Canon DSLRs have a switch in the hot shoe (if you look under the spring plate in the hot shoe one one side there is usually a small white shaft sticking up from underneath the top cover). Sometimes because of spillage etc. this shaft sticks down and the camera thinks that there is an external flash installed so it won't operate the built in flash.
In your case I would be more suspicious of the flash board. Does the flash symbol in the viewfinder light up? When you fire the camera does the symbol go out but the flash doesn't fire? This is a pretty common sign of a bad flash board.
A third possibility would be a broken flash tube. Has the camera been impacted?
Put the camera's mode dial on 'P' and push the flash button on the side of the mount/front cover. Does the flash pop up? Does it fire now? On the P,A,S,M setting the flash fires all the time if it is popped up; if it is one the green rectangle or other setting it only fires if there is not enough light.
Finally reset the menu to factory default in case something is selected that is causing the flash not to fire.

Flash will not fire


Make sure you are in a mode that supports the flash and also make sure the flash was not disabled. There are ways to make the flash "not" fire on purpose when the camera would normally use the flash.

Canon G9 Flash not firing and not able to find flash on the menu


Assuming there's not really a fault on the camera. Have you got it dialed into a pre-set photo option ? This may negate the flash. Suggest going through the settings menu, putting everything to auto and trying again.

I just bought the 430ex II flash and it won't fire on my Rebel XTI.... i read the manual but I'm not sure whats wrong, have any advice?


I assume that flash is turned on. 430ex flash will fire automatically only in AUTO mode. On manual modes you mus manually force the flash to fire.
If flash doesn't fire at all, consider to claim the vendor or let the vendor to check the flash mounted on your camera.

Flash will not fire on Canon SD780 IS Elph


The flash circuit is defective. As it's only a couple weeks old, recommend just exchanging it for another from your place of purchase. You shouldn't be attempting repair while its under warranty.

When fitting a Canon 430EX flash to 450D,,light emits but flash doesnt fire, no flash in any mode.


Your camera may have been set to not fire external flash. Go to your menu, 5th tab. Near the bottom, there's an option for Flash Control. Select that. It should now show "Enable" or "Disable". Enable it.

Also "External Flash func. Setting" gives you more options for your 430EX.

"We have examined the product according to your request and it was found that the PCB assembly was not properly connected the strobe could not operate properly. The PCB assembly was reworked. Other inspection and cleaning and parts replacement were carried out ".

I have tested my camera and it is working correctly. One more information is that my camera more than one year old and warrantee expired on Dec 14 2008. I filed this claim Canon online on Jan 25th 2009 and it came out initial estimation as $0 and they did not charge me a penny. Hope this information will help you.
