SOURCE: Canon Powershot A550 flash will not work it just blinks on & off?

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.

SOURCE: My canon powershot a640's flash isnt flashing.

I can't believe I just managed to fix exactly this problem on my camera.  Warning - the process hurt somewhat, but it did work.
I dismantled the case very carefully:  After taking the shiny grey cover on the screen end off (3 screws, noting carefully where each screw was), I took the top cover off.  
That was a case of unscrewing three screws at the bottom of the battery compartment (I left them in place, as it looked tricky to locate them again, subsequently working with the camera upside down), then gently prising the top off - there is an internal clip just next to the visual viewfinder, which you have to wiggle a bit - just use a fingernail to prise it open.  The top lifts off - dangling on with its cable.
Here is the unpleasant bit.  Quite accidentally, I shorted the flash capacitor, by touching its circuit board - and got the most surprising electric shock.  
I looked around to see if there was anything else I would be able to do, felt there wasn't, so I put it all back together, in the hopes that it might have fixed my problem.
Hey presto, I now have a working camera with working flash!

Why do I always get "red eye" in my photos?


The simple answer is that the flash on a point and shoot camera is so close to the lens that the light bounces off the back of the subjects eye and you get the red of the blood vessels. That's why cameras have a flash setting called "red eye" which is very useful when shooting in a low light situation.

CANON POWERSHOT A300


If it's a short, not much that you can do other than try to track down the short location with a voltmeter. But I do have doubts that a short is causing this. The A300 is a notoriously power hungry camera. It's the first digital Canon to use two AA batteries. It takes great pictures, but unfortunately Canon didn't spend much time focusing on battery efficiency in getting the new two battery design out the door. As a work-around, try taking pictures by shutting off the display (press the DISP button) and using the optical viewfinder. Also the camera works best with high power rechargeable NiMH batteries rated 2500mah or better. Very inexpensive NiMH batteries are generally weak, and if no rating is shown on the package or battery, should be avoided.

Battery display on canon ixus 75


Its same for everyone. You can only see the battery when its about to run out. IN that case a red flashing icon appears on the upper right corner of the screen otherwise there is no indicator for ixus 75.

Battery issue


Sorry for the late response (don't know how I missed this post?). Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your camera's battery icon is flashing. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.

Try to clean batteries host's contacts (cover and inside). By the way, did you charged the batteries before inserting them to camera. In case of a positive answer did you checked their voltage after charging ?
