The flash on my Canon S5 IS has stopped working, is there a way of repairing it? Thank you.


Contact Canon Directly. They will have you send it in and they will look at it. if it is less than a year old and no signs of abuse they should fix it free of charge.
It will also be quicker working with them directly instead of trying to go through a repair center..

Thanks.

Flash not working


Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.
