Re: Flash suddenly stopped working !

The problem is either the trigger coil ( this is what triggers the discharge from the main capacitor, ) or the tube itself. Anyway , these integrated flash units which form parts of these compact digital cameras are normally replaced completely.

It is not a big job , and the parts are not expensive. and hence is not an expensive repair , but you will need to have it done by someone who has access to spares.

My best bet would be your Sony agent but this is not necessary. Ask for a quote first.

Canon G9 Flash not firing and not able to find flash on the menu

Assuming there's not really a fault on the camera. Have you got it dialed into a pre-set photo option ? This may negate the flash. Suggest going through the settings menu, putting everything to auto and trying again.

Hi there, my Nikon D40x flash suddenly stopped working (popping up but not flashing) after I was fooling around with the manual settings, now no matter what I do the "no flash" icon appears beside the...

Try turning camera on,
Then press both Green buttons for a count of 10. This should restore factory reset.

Some models also have a reset button under a connector flap, or go into your menu. Under Custom Setting Menu, choose Menu Reset.

One of these methods should work.

My flash quit working

You are correct in saying that the bulb needs to be replaced. Take the camera to any camera shop and they will replace it for you.

My powershot G9 built in flash is not working

There is a switch on the hot shoe to detect the external flash. When you use an external flash, the switch will be pressed down, then the unit will bypass the internal flash and won’t let it fire. If the little switch gets stuck somehow, you won’t get your internal flash on.
Check this switch on the hot shoe (either on the left side or the right side), blow some compressed air then plug/unplug an external flash several times. Hopefully you can get it back

Camera auto focuses, shoots but the view screen is black

Check the playback menu that the review time has not been set to OFF. This will stop any pictures displaying on the back of the camera when taking them!

I leave mine at 2 secs which is long enough to quickly review and keeps the battery life up. If I need to review for longer, just use playback.

The flash won't come on if you have the camera in any of the creative modes (i.e. A-DEP, M, AV, TV or P). You can manually use it by pressing the flash button just above the lens release button on the front of the camera.

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.

Top of the camera, lightning bolt like button. When you press it while the camera is on, it will bring up a menu, there should be an option in there to shut it off.

Flash not working

I had the same problem with my flash not working on any setting, but I found a way to fix it: hit the menu button, make sure the "rec mode" choice is set to normal instead of burst. I think the burst mode takes multiple shots in a row, so the flash isn't compatible with that setting?
