All Of a sudden my camera stopped having the flash. did it burn out? the batteries are new and I have never had a problem with my settings. it is on flash. when it went out I was taking a picture and it made a weird sound. and then I took another picture and there was no flash.
If the settings was correct, force flash or autoflash, and while pressing shutter button halfway the flash indicator lit, and firing the shutter no flash(not firing). then flash assy is defective, and needs replacement. thanks

Does the flash pop up when you try to take a picture in low light in the Green Box Mode? If the flash does not pop up the problem may just be that something sticky is keeping it down. If it pops up but does not fire, the problem is usually either a bad flash tube or the wiring to the flash has broken where the flash head pivots up and down. When the flash is fully charged the capacitor retains a voltage of over 300 volts even when the camera is turned off and the battery is removed. I've seen several cameras where the owner tried to repair the flash and ended up burning out the entire Main PC Board. Bob Kilbourn www.camerarepairs.com
First try with new batteries as power received will be less as the batteries gets older and so flashes might not be working well.
If you still face the same problem even after changing the batteries, then there is a problem with flash lamp.
Normally when the flash stops working it is because the capacitor the camera uses to store the flash power ( that is what charges..not the bulb) burns out. This is a very difficult repair and should only be completed by a camera technician.
If the repair is over 10 dollars I would suggest a new camera.
The nearest Kodak official repair center is Precision Camera & Video Repair in Enfield, Connecticut. The repair will probably be about 4 weeks. There is more information on repairs at the Kodak website.
Hi There are several things that could cause this.
1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?
2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD750 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.
3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.
