Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
The display shows the flash with a line through it and the auto flash does not work. I have tried pushing the flash button to turn it on but nothing happens.
You have a defective mode switch assembly which will require replacement by a camera shop. This is not a user fix.

Did you try calling Canon tech support or returning to retailer if the camera is really not functioning properly this soon after purchase, I'd try returning it once all troubleshooting issues have not resolved the issue.
Hope this helps!
