Hopefully I'm not stating the obvious.... but all compact cameras have a menu system which allows you to change the various settings. Within the flash mode you will find options like ON/OFF, Auto or Manual. Might I suggest that you use the "Auto" option so that your camera will only use flash when the light is too low for it to register a photo. If you switch the flash off, you may experience the situation where the camera won't take a picture at all due to insufficient available light.

Having said all that.... should the flash still independently operate in OFF mode, then I feel you may need to take it in for repair.

Hope this helps

I have a canon s30, I went to use it today and it has a white screen. No mater what I push, nothing comes on the screen. Thank You Mike

Mike, you may try whats called a hard restart, same as a frozen cellphone. Press and hold off/on power button. Wait roughly 15-20 seconds. If this doesnt do the trick, you can Google Canons website and either look at theyre sites FAQ or at very least get a customer service number or e mail. Hope this helps.

This isn't exactly a service manual, but something I had prepared for a friend who had a similar problem as you. Would recommend instead of fitting a new switch to replace the entier assembly. You can get broken S30's from ebay relatively cheap. Anyways, here's the file:
