Try to reset the camera settings, then press the flash button (lightning symbol) and make sure it's set to ON mode.
if it still does not work you might need to replace it

The main PCB is apparently faulty on my 40D , is there a cheap fix for this , or does it have to be done at a Canon recomended repairer? The quote I have recieved is very expensive

PCB???? Printed Circuit Board? Why do you feel the circuit board is at fault?

Did you set an "old" film flash in the hot shoe like a Vivitar 283? if so you fried the board's flash system.

Or does the pop up internal flash unit not pop up?

Did you attempt to install a large capacity SD card?

Did you fail to format a new card?

Are you getting an error code like "Error 99"?

Unless you fed power into the camera from an incorrect outside power source cable to 110 volt wall socket OR used an old film flash which generates up to 300 trigger volts, I would have some doubts of the Circuit Board being "faulty"

Will my Canon SD600 suport a SDHL flash memory card?

I assume you mean SDHC.

The SD600 was designed to use SD cards. The SDHC specification is backward compatible, meaning that SD cards will work in SDHC devices, SDHC cards will not work in SD devices. This is a hardware incompatibility, not updatable in firmware.

Sorry, but that's just the way it is.

Cannon EOS Rebel XS shows busy display stopped working

Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else.
This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help. PLEASE............. vj

Problem with the flash of my camera


Your flash is defective and needs to be replaced.

One solution is to look online for a defective camera and use the parts to fix yours. Another is to buy a flash from someone like us who sells new and used parts and performs repairs if you can't do it yourself.

Please feel free to check us out, Google: Darntoothysam and you will find us, I cant post a link.

Thanks and good luck from Darntoothysam com

Flash lights fail

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Most likely your flash bulb burned out or was damaged. If you feel comfortable opening your camera you can buy a flash module on the internet or ebay for around $20-$25 and install it yourself. If you do so, be VERY careful NOT TO TOUCH the capacitor as those things can store a massive amount of voltage even when the battery is removed and the camera has been off for some time.

If you don't feel comfortable opening your camera and trying to replace it yourself, my suggestion would be to get a new camera. Repairs by Canon usually run more than $100 and the SD300 is a bit old to be laying out that kind of dough, in my opinion.

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 ;~)

flash may have been dislodged and out of true. or may be the lens is out of alignment or a shutter blade is not functioning. Dropping them sure does them no good at all. Into the repair shop with it
