Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera
My built in flash suddenly stop working. even the flash control in the menu setting is colored grey. meaning it cant be adjusted. what seems to be the problem.
There is a switch on the hot shoe to detect the external flash. When you use an external flash, the switch will be pressed down, then the unit will bypass the internal flash and won’t let it fire. If the little switch gets stuck somehow, you won’t get your internal flash on.
Check this switch on the hot shoe (either on the left side or the right side), blow some compressed air then plug/unplug an external flash several times. Hopefully you can get it back
