SOURCE: Flash stopped working
I had the same problem, "BBWS" found this "solution":
Turn the camera on as if to take photos (not to review photos).
Press "Home" (upper left corner)
Press the camera tab (bottom left-most tab)
Press "Scene Selection (SCN)"
Press "OK" at the "Select type of scene" prompt
However, I still don't have flash available in the PGM or AUTO modes, which tells me it is still broken.

Try resetting the camera back to the factory default setting.
Remove the battery, leave it for 1/2 + hour, insert the battery and configure date time etc.
If it doesn't work then you have faulty camera.

There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it, and don't touch the solder points on the wiring, you'll get zapped. http://www.vimeo.com/3141400

SOURCE: Can't turn the flash on...
check that you do not have the setting on burst as it will not be able to flash in this mode. when looking atthe screen about to take a photo, select menu, the first thingthat comes up is the mode, if it is in burst change in to normal and your camera should now have the option for flash or auto again :) good luck
