Re: Flash quit working
You get one year from the date of purchase for manufacturer defects. Call up customer service NOW so you can get a case open before the year is up. If you go to the store you bought it from, they will probably send you to the mfg anyway, but they might be able to give you a good contact number.
But, it looks like if you purchased it from Walmart they may have a different agreement and it might have only been warrantied for 90 days. In which case you are SOL. You could try removing the batteries and finding the memory battery and removing that too, which might reset some settings, but it's probably a hardware problem.

You probably put your camera under a Flash Off Mode. I have attached a link which can assist you regarding Flash matter. Suggest that if you still continue to experience this problem to consult the nearest Sanyo Authorized Dealer. (see page 29 of 66)
This is caused by the flash capacitor inside witch fills with eletricity to deliver to the flash bulb, if this is not filling or giving you a sign that its ready to flash then you got ether one of two issues:
2. Capacitor inside
3. or even the flash bulb

Well maybe I can solve this..... My lens would not retract and showed two error messages. Tried a number of tricks that have been recommended on this site to no avail. Ultimately what worked for me was pushing quite hard on the barrel of the lens trying to force it back in ( yeah i know, sounds extreme but did'n't think it could make the situation any worse ). The lens remained in the locked out position not moving in spite of the fact that I pushed it fairly hard. When I turned it on the lens retracted and it appears to be fully recovered from whatever was ailing it. Hope this works for you.
