    I can not operate the internal Flash. Do not understand the #1 fix comment.
    " Flash Control" can not be selected in " Menu".

    External Flash is okay.

    When flash is manually selected in any shooting mode (even AUTO) the flash icon blinks on the LCD screen and the camera doesn't shoot

  • Anonymous Oct 29, 2008

    Hi guys, I have the same problem too. When flash is manually selected
    in any shooting mode (even AUTO) the flash icon blinks on the LCD
    screen ans the G9 cannot shoot.
    It happened suddenly, before it worked OK.
    I have another problem but I don´t know if it is related to the flash one.
    After
    a certain time, the camera ask me to replace the battery pack, even if
    it is fully charged. I have tried with two different original cannon
    batteries with the same result.
    Have any of you experienced the same thing?

Did you check the scroll wheel to make sure it is on auto and not disabled. Such small dials it is easy to change this setting by accident especially when you are adjusting the little area of focus feature.

SOURCE: G9 flash

In your display, is the small lightning symbol appear on the screen? Try cycling through the various flash options by pressing the "flash" lightning symbol to the right of the monitor. If the flash is set to flash when there's not enough light at the G9's descretion (with an "A" next to the symbol) then the flash may or may not go off. I oftentimes set the flash to go off all the time if the camera is not doing it automatically (with the A next to the symbol). Being in Auto mode versus the other preset exposure modes affect the flash options available too.

Internal flash won't work anymore


Try a factory reset. In the menu go to the third spanner and select 'Clear settings'

To pop up the flash put the camera in manual mode (M) and press the flash release button and it should pop up.

My flash drive isnt being detected and the light isnt coming on


The problem is going to be either one or the other: A bad USB controller or jack in the computer or, a bad flash drive.

Try connecting the flash drive to all the other USB jacks on the computer - if it still fails, try a different computer completely. If it works on a different computer, it indicates that the controller in the first computer has failed and is likely that all the USB jacks on it will not work. If the flash drive works on some USB jacks and not others, it indicates a problem with that particular jack. You should mark the jack as defective and either discontinue its use - or purchase a USB expansion card for the computer with support for internal USB jacks and disconnect the leads of bad jack from the motherboard and reconnect to the expansion card instead.

If the flash drive does not work in any USB jack, I'd be willing to bet that its useful life has come to an end. The data on it, if still intact, is likely to remain there with no way of being accessed. You should completely destroy the flash drive before throwing it away.

External flash problems


Sounds like the external flash is being triggered by the pre-flash.

On the D40 set the flash mode to manual. On the F65 set the flash mode to Standard TTL.
