Question about Pentax *ist D Digital Camera
The built in flash suddenly cracked with a big noise and doesn't work at all anymore. I am quite sure the tube is burned out.
Unless you are trained as an electronic engineer, I don't think you can replace a flash bulb in a camera.
The chance you get the correct "bulb" (it is a tube) is very slim. You could look on ifixit dod com if anyone already did change a flashlight in a camera. I think they also can help when you want to buy spare parts. But first ask what it will cost. Perhaps an external flash is cheaper than a repair. It also gives more light, and can be used on your next camera too.
