Let me tell you the possiable causes of this issue you having with your camera and then you can decern the best course of action.

the flash has a capacitor inside the filles up with power from the battery then once charged dilvers a sustained voltage to the bulb to create the flash.

Now if this componet has failed or is intermittant then this would happend.

Keep in mind that a battery that is towards the end of its prime will do this to so do not just go for repair all of the sudden try a new battery. If the new battery does not work then you know you got the issue I am talking about thus you going ot need a camera shop to change out that peice.

thanks for your attention and prompt ratings and feedback today.

I want to click pics at night but even with its flash on .... pic quality is nt so good ................ is there any night mode function on Canon PowerShot SX130 IS camera ......if yes please tell me...


you have a dial on top of your camera. where you can find 2 types of shots. one is Night scene. and other is Night snap shot. Second one is better.
Note that even a small hand shake will spoil the subject. Use a tripod for night shotting with flash

Flash is not working


If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:

  • When shooting MPEG movies
  • When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode
  • If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
  • Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  • Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  • If an external flash is connected

I have a canon powershot 750


An ideea would be pressing the button a little bit harder and a little bit longer.Most of the cameras have that orange light before the flash(that appears when you press harder on the button) to reduce the red-eye effect in the pictures.
If this doesn't work, look carefully in the manual or the settings of your camera and try to find an option that turns on the flash.Also the type of the picture(indoor, sunny, night etc) can automatically disable the flash.
As a last resort, here is the camera's manual

My problem


Highly recommend that you instead consider using a card reader instead to download you pictures. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon:
