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.

My flash stopped working i have CANON 340 hs powershot n when i took without flash its giving me results


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

CANNON POWERSHOT ELPH FLASH WONT WORK


Try this place for help with it: www.camerasandparts.com I'm sure they have a flash service for your model since they deal with the Powershots, they're the place if you need help with a Canon. They're not expensive at all and the work is superb on the Powershots. Plus they service up the rest of the camera at the same time which is nice. If you need help with it, they'd be the place. I don't have their email but it should be somewhere on their site. Good luck with it.

My canon powershot sd 1200 wont turn on i have recharged the battery. what else can i try?


Hi,
Check whether your batteries are actually making contact with the battery posts, and that these posts are clean. If not, bend the posts up/down a little, and maybe clean them with a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip. Or if that does'nt work our for you , if your camera uses Compact Flash, check to make sure all pins are present and aligned in the card slot (if bent, simply unbend/straighten them with a skinny "jewelers" screwdriver, then insert the flash card for final realignment).

Thank you !!

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
