Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

My 6 month old SD870 camera's flash is not working. Help!

Answers :

Have you tried it in auto shooting mode and made sure the flash was on auto? Try going into a room with low light (like a bathroom) and take a shot with the flash on auto and if it still doesn't go off, call Canon and set up for service under your one year manufacturer's warranty.

Hope this helps!

No Power on camera. Battery will not charge. Charger led flashes when tying to charge. Have another (older 2007) exact model camera and battery from this camera works fine within this camera. This suggests a faulty battery pack. Camera is just over 3 months old having no more than four charges. I would expect a replacement under warranty. Please contact me ASAP.

A few months ago my camera started having problems. no matter how many times i change the batteries, the camera still will not turn on and when it does it flashes a quick image and then the screen goes black and it dies without taking in the lens!!! i am very VERY careful with it and have never dropped it, so i do not understand why it is not working! the Camera is only a year old and i have used it quite a few times and it has never had a problem until now.

Whenever I plug in my Samsung Dualview PL100 camera to charge, the arrow light flashes orange constantly and the camera doesn't charge at all. I have the adaptor to change the two pin American socket to a three pin UK socket, and the charger just isn't functioning at all. The camera is only a few months old, and has only really been used constantly for three days. It had it's initial full power up, but since then I haven't been able to charge it at all.

Fresh, fully charged batteries last about 15 seconds in the camera, with the orange "low battery warning" flashing, then it shuts down and dies! The batteries still read 1.343 Volts. This camera had its power management circuit board replaced under warranty when it was 2 months old, and even so battery life has been dropping off, despite a whole range of new batteries being used.

If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing.

My camera is less than 6 months old and the flash will occassionally work and not work, why is this?

The fault is definetly in the flash unit and unfortunately it is within the camera itself. Opening the camerra to identify the fault is the difficult problem. It is for sure an intermittent fault in the trigger to the flash or an electronics failure ... Kodak EasyShare M320 Digital Camera

The flash on my Vivitar Vivicam 5024 will not turn on. It used to work but can't get it working now. the camera is 3 months old.

The buttons on my 4 month old Nikon S8000 don't work. I can take a photo but can't zoom in, I can't view the photos, can't record a video, can't turn on the flash (or any of the other setting on the rotating wheel), can't go to menu, scene selector or delete a photo (which doesn't matter as I can't view the photos anyway!). The shop I bought it from is 130 miles away as I've moved away and no other camera shops are near here, so if possible I'd like to solve this without having it sent away! Tha

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?

Are you getting a Err message? If so The ERR message is not a good thing. Read page 132 of the D80 Manual. Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no longer works. When I switch into Flash mode it blinks and goes back to No Flash mode. Do you think it's the flash tube, the circuit or the battery that charges the flash? I opened the camera and nothing looks blown.

The 8025 is a very cheap camera....I hope you didn't pay more than $15 at the pawn shop. Your camera has a blown flash tube. The camera could have been dropped in water by the previous owner. You could have bought one at Walmart that would have at le ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that? I am normally an old school film camera person - i dont know much about this at all... thanks kathleen

Overexposure I have owned my Fujifilm S5000 for about 2 1/2 years. It has worked perfectly until the last couple of months. I have always used the flash when the camera told me to. Recently, the camera has been overexposing inside pictures when I use the flash. If I don't use the flash, it underexposes the picture. Any suggestions...ideas? I have moved fairly recently and can't find my manual anywhere. Thanks, Laurie

The top of your cam should have a square button with a positive and negative sign. (I have the S5200, so it shouldn't be that different.) Hold that button down while pushing the button for "Macro" (the one with the little flower. On your LCD the n ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera
