Canon SD750 won't take photo if flash required

The camera works just fine if I switch the flash off. However, if I put it on auto flash, the lightning flash symbol keeps flashing when the shutter is pressed. Normally, this icon flashes when the flash is warming up.

SOURCE: Canon SD 550 does not work when flash setting is ON

I have the same problem. Cannon customer support says it will fix this for $119 + 8 for shipping... or you can get a refurbished SD 800is for $140+10 for shipping with w/ a 6 month warranty... what a deal ;~)

SOURCE: Flash Problem

Hey tombston,
An error code of 99 is Canons general error code for this camera, and they suggest cleaning the lens contacts and/or removing the battery and then reinserting it. If this doesn’t work I would try resetting the camera to the default factory settings, and directions on how to do this are on page 35 of your camera manual. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I have included a link to a PDF download of the camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: Canon 450D, ERROR 99 only when flash pops up

Err 99 usually means your lens contacts are dirty either on the lens itself or on the camera.

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

Some Canon cameras use some of the screws around the perimeter of the camera to serve as a safety switch to prevent activation of the flash if the case is opened. See this article for more info.

How do you turn the flash off?


Press the flash button (right on the multiselector, marked with a lightning bolt) repeatedly to cycle through the various flash modes. To turn off the flash, select the lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it. Don't forget to turn it back on later if you want it to flash.
