Question about Canon Cameras
Many cameras have a safety feature that prevents the flash capacitor from charging if the case is opened. They usually use a couple of the screws along the perimeter of the camera to complete a circuit that lets the processor know that the case is closed. Verify that all the screws are in place along the perimeter of the camera. If missing a screw, try using one of the others to replace it.
If they're all there, next thing to check is the batteries. The brand you're using may have reached its shelf life, and thus may not have sufficient power to charge the flash capacitor. Try a better brand.
If better batteries don't help, then the flash tube or its circuit is probably at fault. This is difficult to replace, requires some soldering, and goes beyond what I can describe here.
