You can do this through your settings menu. Have you used the menua before to change settings.Your manual will have instructions for this . Just in case you do not have the manual, I will look up your manual and try to find exact instructions for you. I'll get right back to you.

    Your camera operating guide is available for dowload at this address

    http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/contro...



    In the advanced guide on page 18, it explains how to use your func/settings button to find the settings you need. The advanced manual will address the darkness issue as well and settings to help with that. Each camera is a little different and I just wanted to make sure that I was using terminology that fit your camera. You can download the simple or advancedcopy of your manual. You will need www.adobe.com/acrobat to read it , so if you do not have a current version. you can go to that link and download it for free first.



    I hope this helps you! And Thank You for using Fix Ya!

    usually the flash and battery is closely related.
    Change the batteries and you will notice that the flash is stronger

My camera's flash is not working and the icon of flash keeps blinking every time i try to click a photo. Also the camera works fine when I switch off the flash.


If its blinking then it meas that it is not adequately charged. The flash indicator will turn to steady orange if its properly charged.

if you have the camer in manual on the back on the round wheel there is a small lightning bolt looking thing (a wavy line pointing down) click that and it should cycle through the flash options, normally the sybol with a circle and line through it means no flash.

As for photo tips, no flash, maybe side light it with a lamp or put it beside a window, this might catch the shadows in the glass so the engraving comes out more.

I sent my camera into Canon for repair. They said the flash was malfunctioning, and there was something wrong with the flash exposure control. The repair cost about $87. It took approximately 10 days from the time I sent the camera in until the time I got it back.
