there are more possibilities...first is that the settings can not be changed cause the flash is dead and the lack of contact make this not be recognized on...
Second it may be a firmware malfunction and in this case you have to download the firmware update and install it in the camera..procedure is explain at download on the support site ..
The last possibility is that the camera is set on a shooting mode that do not allow /require the the flash ...for example bright light ..mode..Check it and put it in normal mode and after that enable the flash ..or ...try to see in the main menu the reset to factory settings and engage it ...This should make all function work if there are no physical damages..

I have the same problem with the same exact camera. Before the flash stopped working, I was taking pictures and the flash was making noise. Every time it flashed, it'd make a loud snapping sound. It only flashed 3 times before the flash finally kicked the bucket... Now I can't take pictures when the flash is turned on.
I read somewhere to try new batteries because the flash might not be getting enough juice, but I highly doubt that's going to work.

Did you try another battery?
A weak battery can cause a shutdown.
If it is not the battery, make sure the memory card is not defective.
Beyond this, there is most likely a defect on one of the camera circuit boards. At this level the camera would require service.
