    Um, yes.  Even when it says the flash is on, it doesn't flash.

Did you also try the flash button that's actually on the back of the camera?

    ok-if flash will not fire it is either broken or the only other time the flash won't come on is if the camera is in continous shooting mode which i doubt you have it on-if the icon shows flash and it's not working i would assume it's broken

Flash Does not work. canon sd1000


This happened to my SD1000 and I followed the step by step instructions shown here:
http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Replacing+Canon+PowerShot+SD1000+Broken+Flash+Unit/7778/1

and when I got to step 15, I found that the small plug that connects the flash to the camera body had been disconnected when the camera had been dropped. I simply pressed the connection back in tight and reassembled the camera - and it works. Maybe this happened to yours too??

Flash will not fire on Canon SD780 IS Elph


The flash circuit is defective. As it's only a couple weeks old, recommend just exchanging it for another from your place of purchase. You shouldn't be attempting repair while its under warranty.

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.

Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Elph


there are some settings that can help with this (check out red eye and flash settings). The best solution I have found is to press the button down half way. The view finder will try to frame the picture, and then press the button all the way down. This 1) Eliminates Red Eye 2) Increases picture speed 3) allows for the "perfect" moment because you can leave it at half pressed for as long as you like, and 4) Allows you to take rapid fire pictures if you don't depress all the way.

Hope that helps

Canon Powershot SD1000. Not allowing to take pictures


Hi

Try turning the flash off and see if you can then take pictures. If that works then your flash is defective and needs to be replaced.

We are a digital camera repair business (Google Darntoothysam) and we can do that repair for you for a very reasonable price, or you can look for a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com
