I have the very same issue, and I am wondering if the battery has lost capacity to the point where it can't charge the flash?

New batteries are $5 on any auction website. If that's not it, the flash isn't worth the cost to fix if the camera is not under warranty.

Battery wont charge


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My Canon powershot SD1000 screen isn't working. Iv'e charged the battery but when I turn the camera on, the screent is black. It won't take any pictures


It's very likely the CCD sensor that needs to be replaced. If you need to have it serviced, this place is excellent for the Powershots and not much at all if you need to have one fixed: www.camerasandparts.com
Before having it fixed, press the DISP button first and make sure you just didn't turn the display off. If you end up needing service for the Canon, that place above is really great for these cameras.

When i try to veiw photos the camera turns off Canon Powershoot SD1000


Ensure that the battery is fully charged. If the battery is fully charged and the problem continues, export all the photos to a computer and format the memory card.
If there is an issue with the memory card, formatting may resolve the issue.

Flash Does not work. canon sd1000


This happened to my SD1000 and I followed the step by step instructions shown here:
http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Replacing+Canon+PowerShot+SD1000+Broken+Flash+Unit/7778/1

and when I got to step 15, I found that the small plug that connects the flash to the camera body had been disconnected when the camera had been dropped. I simply pressed the connection back in tight and reassembled the camera - and it works. Maybe this happened to yours too??

I have the same problem


The weaker the battery, the longer it takes the flash to charge. After taking a flash picture, you're supposed to wait until the flash has recharged before pushing the shutter button again.

Amperege of 580 EX-II


Interesting Question!
The rating in milliamps is a matter of battery capacity and charging rates. The higher the better as you will get more flashes per charge as long as you have the correct charger to match the batteries’ capacity and use the correct charging times. Aside from this issue of duty cycle between charges- this has no effect on the power of the flash unit as to output. This cant burn out or damage the circuitry.

The issue here is VOLTAGE. Most AA alkaline batteries provide 1.5 volts. Most rechargeable AAs provide 1.2 volts. We are looking at a voltage differential of 1.2 volts (a 20% deficit) if 4 batteries are required. This MAY cause slower recycling times in order to attain a full charge for each shot. In SOME units that can cause a bit if overheating due to strain on the step up circuitry.

It so best to check with the manufacture or distributor of you flash unit before purchasing you rechargeable batteries and charger. If you units have a built in charging circuit this can definitely be problems if there is a mismatch in charging rates and voltage. If this is the case be sire to check your manual or with the manufacturer or distributor- there must be a list of compatible batteries.
