Re: A70 Flash does not work

You can buy a used A70 with everything working for about $50, and it'll almost definitely cost you more than that to fix the flash. If the reconditioned Canon they're offering you is around that price, and they'll give you a warranty, and you love the A70 too much to upgrade, I'd say take them up on it. I love my A70 too, but I recently got an A540 for my wife and now I usually use it also (when she lets me). The lighter weight (2 AA batts instead of 4) and the larger LCD monitor screen really make a difference.

Internal memory

Sorry, most Canon cameras do not have internal flash memory (maybe the newer models? But the A70 definitely does not). Those other model cameras that do have internal memory only have a few megabytes. And this memory is primarily intended only to take a couple pics to verify that the camera is working properly.

Flash Doesn't Work / Replacement?

Canon will sometimes do a complimentary repair if you let them know you got it as a gift - when it's near the warranty. Give it a try: Otherwise, the flash assembly is about $40 and labor would be around $85 for us to do the work. The flash assemblies are NOT interchangeable. The LCD on the A70 is $55 + $45 labor to replace.
