This happened to my SD1000 and I followed the step by step instructions shown here:
http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Replacing+Canon+PowerShot+SD1000+Broken+Flash+Unit/7778/1

and when I got to step 15, I found that the small plug that connects the flash to the camera body had been disconnected when the camera had been dropped. I simply pressed the connection back in tight and reassembled the camera - and it works. Maybe this happened to yours too??

SOURCE: Canon SD1000 Flash won't fire

New batteries are $5 on any auction website. If that's not it, the flash isn't worth the cost to fix if the camera is not under warranty.

SOURCE: Kodak Easyshare Z760 orange light flashing

The flash does not charge separate from the rest of the camera. Try cleaning the flash sensor on the front of the camera or the flash led may be bad.

Secondly, this light functions as a flash sensor which is trying to tell you that you need to use a flash although you may have the flash manually turned off. looks like a bolt of lightning with a circle/slash through it.

SOURCE: My Canon Powershot SD1000 will not turn on. The

What you have here on your SD1000 is just a power problem. It happens sometimes on digital cameras. It's unfortunate, but these things do happen. You would need to get the camera fixed which is a good idea considering what a great little camera that is. The site that I'd go to for help with a Canon Powershot would be www.camerasandparts.com The only thing they fix is the Canon Powershot Cameras and they happen to be excellent for service on these. The deal with them, and this is right on their site for your model, they perform the repair with both parts and labor included, you get all of the service for your model included, they give you a great 90 day warranty on anything on your camera for 90 days, and they include priority shipping going back. For your model that all runs $79. They're the place for help with the Powershot Cameras, your problem and service package is available on their site. I hope that will help you with it.

Flash will not fire on Canon SD780 IS Elph


The flash circuit is defective. As it's only a couple weeks old, recommend just exchanging it for another from your place of purchase. You shouldn't be attempting repair while its under warranty.

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.

When ever i take a picture, the orange light turns on acting like its going to take a picutre but it doesnt. When i take it off flash, it takes the picture.


The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready.
Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.

I had this problem before, sent it off to have it repaired 1 year ago, and now have it again.

Just to make sure it's the same problem, here's a description: The flash seems to be out of sync with the shutter. Using the flash in medium or low light (in auto mode) makes the picture darker than not using a flash at all. It ruins the picture. In a completely dark room, even though the flash fires, the pictures comes out pitch black.

The problem is the flash unit -- it needs to be replaced. If your camera is under warranty, Canon will replace it for free. (You pay only to ship it to them.)

(You might try what they told me to try before I shipped it off, and that was to reset the camera by pushing and holding the menu button until it resets. Didn't do anything for mine, but who knows.)

If it's not under warranty, Canon will offer to replace it with a refurbished newer model for a discounted price. That's my situation now, because the problem has come back.

I did come across a posting that described how to replace the flash unit yourself -- it involves taking the camera apart, but looks doable. (Sorry, I don't have the link handy and I'm not sure if I can find it back.) The problem is, I don't know where to get the part. Canon has been no help on this. Anyone know where I can get a Canon flash unit for the A85?

Hope this helps, and good luck.

Please don't take offense, but the following should logically be tried first. Notice that the location of the flash is very close to where most people would hold the camera. Try taking some photos, but pay attention to where you would naturally place your fingers. Was it near or over the flash? If so conciously try to keep them away from the flash and then compare your pictures. Has the problem been corrected?

Won't turn on


Got it. I had the same issue with my SD950. If you may have dropped it, this happens quite a bit. Good thing is that the green light goes one still.

Go into the settings mode and reset the camera to its default configuration. This usually works. If you cannot even get to this, the LCD may be damaged beyond a simple reset/software fix and it might need to be repaired.
