Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera
It sometimes gives off the pre-flash and when it's time to shoot.. "click" no flash and very dark image. IF you're lucky, it may give of a faint flash but not as bright as expected. SOMETIMES, it gives off a bright enough flash but the image is still dark or black. Got me stumped!!!
I'm not sure if the problem is the flash or settings on your EOS, from what your saying.
Lets try to change the settings first.
Try to change the settings of your camera, look in your manual. What your looking for is ISO, this is the exposure. By taking practice shots and changing ISO you will find a setting that will match your preference.
Also, it seems like your flash is faulty. Contact Canon to fix it for you.
If you have the money, try to fix your flash. Otherwise set your ISO to auto or change it every time you take a picture outside or inside.

The Intelli-Check™ Filter Monitors will indicate replacement of the pre-filter and the
HEPA filter. Depending upon your individual usage (environment and hours used),
you may need to check and replace the filters more or less frequently.
To check Expected Filter Life Usage
When the unit is turned on, quickly press the appropriate filter monitor button. The
pre-filter light will flash up to 3 times and the HEPA filter light will flash up to 4 times,
depending upon how much expected filter life has been used.
1 flash = from new, up to 1/3 expected life used up
2 flashes = between 1/3 and 2/3 expected life used up
3 flashes = between 2/3 and all of expected life used up
Remains on = time to check/replace pre-filter
1 flash = from new, up to 1/4 expected life used up
2 flashes = between 1/4 and 1/2 expected life used up
3 flashes = between 1/2 and 3/4 expected life used up
4 flashes = between 3/4 and all of expected life used up
Remains on = time to check/replace HEPA filter
To RESET Filter Monitor
When the filter monitor light remains on, it is time to check/replace the filter and reset
the filter monitor, if needed. With the unit powered on, press and hold the appropriate
filter monitor button down for approximately 5 seconds until the light turns off.
