Question about Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera
I cannot take any pictures when the flash setting is 'ON'. This problem occurs when the camera is either in Manual or Auto mode. All settings with the flash On like red eye reduction, auto flash or slow sync dont work. The shutter release button seems to not go further than half press. The picture does not get taken. The camera works normally when I turn off the flash. I tried the last resort by reseting my camera to factory settings. Does anyone have an idea why this might be happening? Any solutions out there? Thanks
I have the same problem. Cannon customer support says it will fix this for $119 + 8 for shipping... or you can get a refurbished SD 800is for $140+10 for shipping with w/ a 6 month warranty... what a deal ;~)

I replaced the flash circuitry and it still doesn't work. Does your camera make a sound like there's something loose in it? Mainly the flash circuitry part. I bought a new one and that one also makes the strange sound. I'm not sure if I should ask for a refund.
One thing I noticed while doing the replacement is that the camera behaves as if it doesn't detect the flash circuitry. what I mean is, when I took the flash circuitry out and powered it up, it behaves like it does with that part in it. So it seems like there's a connection problem where it doesn't not detect that the flash is there.

I bought a new camera, an olympus. It was cheaper than getting the canon fixed, or should I say, just sending it back to canon to start. With obsolecence, I intend to buy the cheapest electronics since they only last about 2 years regardless of price. It's too bad, I liked the canon a lot. Corporate America rules! Julie Z
