Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera
My flash is not working
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.
