Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera

My flash won't work!!!

Sometimes when I try to take a picture with the flash, all I hear is a clicking noise. The orange light on the front shines for a moment, and then back off. But NO picture! IT takes pictures without flash, but not with! Can anyone suggest a problem or a resolution? If it's an internal problem, I may as well buy a new camera!

Check to make sure your camera's not on the A530 recall advisory list. Maybe the flash capacitor isn't getting enough power due to the shorting described in the advisory?:

If you did not drain the fuel all the way or put a stabilizer in the fuel then you have gummed up lines for one thing. The other noises are not really concerning.

I Have a 94 cherokee country with a 56028297 ecu,it has no power at the grey wire at the ecu,it does flash sometimes and I can hear the relay work sometimes. I can bypass the fuel pump relay circuit and...

If you hear relays clicking sometimes and the jeep won't start, at those times, is the check engine light illuminated on the dash, or not? If no check engine light is on the dash, at times when the jeep won't start, your ecu is in need of repairs. The ecu sends power to the ignition and fuel relays and when the ecu starts to malfunction, the relays usually start clicking.

When ever i take a picture, the orange light turns on acting like its going to take a picutre but it doesnt. When i take it off flash, it takes the picture.

The orange light blinking means the flash is charging, once the light goes off you can go ahead take picture with flash. Your light keeps blinking because the flash is not ready.
Try with fully charged batteries. If it won’t work, you may have an open fuse or something wrong with the flash circuit.

Flashing Standby/Stero light and No picture.

How good is your picture when it did come ? Is it as good as it once was ? Or is it alittle washed out. If it is washed out the picture tube is weak . Sometimes turning up the screen control alittle would solve problem but if you turn it up too much you would have faint white line running diagonally. Now if you think the picture was good before you this problem video circuit would be your suspect . Jungle IC or something in the RGB circuits . Good luck

Try taking the battery out and use only the AC. If everything turned out fine, it could be a problem on the battery or on the port.
