Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Canon S1 flash stuck

The flash on my Canon S1 does not pop open. Any suggestions to gently rel;ease it or hints as to how I can manually trigger the release. Not sure where it is located. I want to make it so the flash is always open. It looks as thought he spring or catch is sprung because it doesn't close abolutely all the way. Thank you.

Mine does the exact same thing but I just pop it open manually when I need it. The great thing is that unless you have a very dark night shot you can pretty much shoot with out it, but don't be afraid to pop it out manually. It will close again!

Canon 60d internal flash not popping up


Check the metal tabs inside the notable rails as they need to touch the upper part of the rails to allow built in flash to work
Use a micro screwdriver to push the tabs up to the rail
GENTLY as that was what was wrong with my canon digital body

Use of Canon 60D's wireless function to control power on Canon 430EXII, being operated manually.


Your flash will fire optically. This is wireless but not radio.On the flashgun window move through the options until you see all of these in the window :- Flashing M, MZoom (24mm)
(the power output eg) 1/4
Flashgun icon CH1 Slave (blank)
The front panel should show a flashing red light. This means it is ready to receive the light signal from your onboard flash. From the camera menu select the in built flash control.
Set it to - Built-in flash - CustWireless
Flash mode - Manual flash
Wireless func - (single flashgun icon)
Channel- 1 ch
firing group - (flashgun icon)All
(flashgun icon) flashoutput - 1/64

selecting 1/64 should be sufficient to trigger the flash gun but not light the scene.

Manually pop up the onboard flash

In the view finder you'll see a number of green bars when half pressing the shutter and wait for them to go down to one which mean the camera and flashgun are communicating, fully press to take the shot and the flash (off camera) should fire.

The flash on my Canon EOS 400D won't work


Can you pull it up manually, Be careful when doing this but try opening it manually, it is possible that the catch for the flash is just stuck temporarily.

My Printer says error code 6A00 What do i do?


Try this especially if the printer had not been used for some time.
Switch it off, open the lid and manually (GENTLY!)slide the cartridge-tray to the left. Then you can see if a piece of paper or ink stucks it. Gently degunk the base pad with a little isopropyl alcohol on a Q-tip and ease the mechanism back.

Flash will not pop up. Camera was returned to Canon but not repaired because warranty had expired. Problem was diagnosed as software, not mechanical-estimate $300.00. Flash did pop up once and operate...


This also happened to my camera and I am able to pop the flash up manually by flicking it up with the edge of my fingernail. It helps to simultaneously press down on the piece just above the microphone (I think) which is just above the viewfinder. That gives a little leverage.

Flash does not pop up when it on automatic


hello
unfortunately, the only solution is to return it to the store where you bought it from or call Canon. I had that issue when I first bought my camera and i had to return it to the store

Flash is Stuck


You have to yank on the flash, its the only way. Mine gets stuck most of the time, but does open on its own on rare occasion. it must be a defect of the model.

Powershot S1 Digital Camera: Flash won't fire


Make sure the camera is not in Document mode . Document takes a picture with added contrast so text stands out. Make sure the camera is not set to Infinity focus . When you select Infinity Focus, the camera automatically turns off the flash and auto focus so you get sharp, clear pictures. Make sure the camera is set to Fill, Auto, or Red Eye flash. See your camera manual for details about setting the flash.
