Make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB socket. Make sure the switch is in the mountain position, not the flower.
Also bear in mind that the flash is for still photos only, not for videos.

Canon Speedlite 580ex ii - won't work with camera


Caroline, you should try to set the camera on "M" and the flash in 2nd curtain flash sync.

Or set flash in ATG wireless IR ETTL Slave modes and pop-up the flash on Canon EOS-70D.

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.

Flash not working


Hi

Either your flash is defective and to solve the problem you replace the flash; or if that doesn't work you will have to replace the mainboard (PCB). Its very hard to say which will solve the problem as you can't tell before you try.
The other option is to buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two.

The flash costs about $30 (I would have to check pricing), and we can install it for you if you need it done; we are a digital camera repair business and are happy to help. (Google: Darntoothysam com)


Just remember if you're working with the flash to be careful, you will a good healthy ZAP! if you touch both flash terminals at the same time. =)

Hope this helps, let me know if we can help with anything.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

My flash has stopped working


Hi

Unfortunately you will either need to replace the flash unit... or if you're unlucky the main PCB. I don't think you will be able to do anything without either of those parts.

I have made my living running a digital camera repair business for several years now, wish I had better news for you about your camera. If we can help with the repair let us know.

Good luck: Darntoothysam com

Auto Flash 200x doesnt work ???


CoolSmith,
try a non dedicated flash unit, if the flash works then the 200X is not compatible to the xg1
if the flash did not fire, there is a circuit problem. there are no new parts for this model.

Flash not working


I had the same problem with my flash not working on any setting, but I found a way to fix it: hit the menu button, make sure the "rec mode" choice is set to normal instead of burst. I think the burst mode takes multiple shots in a row, so the flash isn't compatible with that setting?

Flash


The flash circuit has gone out the squilling noise is the flash compasitor popped and the acid inside is burning.
