Kodak no longer repair... Buy a Kodak P20 flash (or similar) to go on the hotshoe, and set the flash to external only in the camera menu... works a treat!

Flash not working

Only you can make the executive decision if it would be worthwhile to fix the onboard flash.
You can send the camera into Canon and get an estimate on how much it would cost for the repair.
Hope this helps,

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken...

There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it, and don't touch the solder points on the wiring, you'll get zapped.

The automatic flash is not working

No method to fix it just take it to a repair shop.

Canon Xsi will not read external flash.

The XSi is not weather sealed like the 580ex II and is suseptable to liquid damage. Most cameras will take a few sprinkles and won't have a problem, but if the liquid got into the main body it might have issues. The top of the camera around the hotshoe is particularly sensitive.

I would doubt it could be self repaired. Take it to a liscensed repairer to have it looked at.

My son dropped it and the flash no longer works. Pictures still look great outside but all inside pictures are super dark. How easily is the flash replaced and what is an estimated cost so I can plan to...

Contact kodak if you want an estimate for repairs.

If your camera can change the exposure, exposure settings. You could just change it so your camera can absorb more light in dark places.

Flash not working

this appears to be something that kodak would need to repair. Go to this link My digital camera is broken. How can I get it repaired or serviced? and follow the instructions on the screen, if this does not help then there is an option to send a repair request to kodak, which they will do free if it is still under guarantee.

I hope this helps

My flash is no longer working

The strobe element is often the problem in this camera, if the glass tube cracks or breaks the strobe will no longer function. This part is not difficult to change but please be aware that the capacitor that fires the flash often remains charged and will hurt you if you contact it. Please be careful if you attempt this repair. I have a 10K resistor that I attach to this capacitor to discharge it before working in these circuits. Good luck to you. Joe Weibel
