Canon IXUS 80IS - I can't turn the flash on

\015 Hi, I have had this camera for ages and one thing I have noticed (unless I am being stupid) is there's no way to actually turn ON the flash, for example in pics where the sun is behind people. When you click the flash button it only gives the option of 'auto' or 'flash off' but not an option to turn it on. Would appreciate to know if this is normal with this camera, thanks!\015

Answers :

When this camera is in "Auto" mode the only flash functions available are Auto or Flash Off - in order to get the option of "Flash On" for all pictures you have to put the camera in "Manual" mode - to do this:
\015\012
\015\012-Set the mode switch to the camera icon
\015\012-Press the "Func./Set" button
\015\012-Use the left or right arrow keys to set it to Manual mode (its icon looks like half a camera with the letter M beside it)
\015\012-Press the "Func./Set" button again to save your mode change.
\015\012
\015\012Now when you press the flash button and cycle through the choices there will also be a "Flash On" option.

We went to a water theme park and my camera fell into the water (immersed completely). After that I tried to turn it on to check it works or not but it was showing some problems. Then I opened the battery and left it for a day like around 24 hours. Now when I try to turn on the camera. It says Lens Error. What could be done in this situation. Camera Model : Canon IXUS 80IS. Need some assistance in this regard.


Turning on a camera with water inside is risky. You can fry the circuits. I'm amazed yours worked although for how long is anyone's guess. It should have been buried in a bowl of dry rice for a week. Even so, water will have seeped between the lens e ... Canon Digital Cameras

My flash is not working on my Canon PowerShot SX110 is camera. Help! My boss thinks the flash is turned off, but when I go to flash settings it says that red-eye and sync are both turned on. Basically I tried to use the camera outside the other night and the camera kept telling me to raise the flash even though the flash was up. The pictures were all blurry.

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens ..

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.


These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

Canon T3i thinks that there is an external flash attached and will not allow use of the built in pop up flash. I have tried putting on the external flash and turning it off while it is on the camera and literally every combination of the sort to try and see if I can get the camera to realize that the flash is no longer there. Please help....


There is a pin in the hot shoe that operates the external flash switch on the bottom of the top cover. It is probably stuck down - maybe by sticky liquid spillage. Clean with a toothbrush and windex and see if it will then pop up. ... Canon EOS 600D Rebel T3i Digital Camera
