Wont take a picture unless I turn off the flash

Reboot camera by removing batteries, hold power button down 5 seconds, release, re-insert batteries, and camera should work properly.

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Error 5 with canon eos rebel 6.3 mp


there is a pin in the hot shoe that detects if an external flash is connected. check and make sure it isn't stuck down.

check to make sure the flash comes all the way up. sometimes spillage can cause the flash to not go up all the way or not to come up at all. you would have to disassemble the flash unit and clean the pivots and lubricate them with grease

If the flash comes all the way up but the camera is still 'clicking' - the lock is still moving back and forth to free the flash, then the problem is either in the flash-up switch, located on the flex on the bottom side of the top cover, is not operating properly. you would need to remove the top cover (first removing all the other covers) and repair the switch. if that switch is OK, then there may be a circuit problem. don't forget to discharge the flash capacitor - 300 volts - ouch!!!

if the flash comes up but the flash symbol keeps blinking and the flash never charges, or the symbol comes on for full flash, but when you fire it the flash doesn't fire and the symbol starts blinking again, you are probably looking at a dead flash board

I get the blue screen with MSDC on it, it doesn't turn on unless plugged into the wall/electronic device, it wont turn off after I get the blue screen unless I unplug it, and it's been chargin


It is charging by USB port using ac adapter, can also charge by computer USB port during picture uploads and downloads. Do you need an instruction manual.

Try to shoot a picture and download to pC. If it is ok then your lcd is bad. You need to replace it.

Canon flash does not work


The flash has to charge in between shots, so if you are not waiting long enough it won't charge and wont take the shot.

If you are waiting, Im not really sure...
