Auto flash cannot function - Canon PowerShot A460 Digital Camera


Answers :

I have an A410 that probably has the same auto flash mechanism. If you are handy, perhaps you can switch them out. Or you could look for another "broken" A460 on ebay and get the part from that one...or maybe even find a cheap one that works. On the other hand, this is an older model and it may be time to relegate it to daytime/outdoor photography and get a newer model for the times when a flash is needed for your pictures.

My Canon EOS Rebel XS digital camera has suddenly stopped taking pictures. It will not focus even though it is on the auto focus setting. The first set of numbers are flashing and there is a flashing dot behind the ISO 800. It was working fine when I used it one time and then the next time it wouldn't. I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!
