Flash will not work - Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera


Answers :

I have the same problem with my Canon A590IS, the flash stopped working. I reset, have fully charged batteries and still no flash. I guess the flash is indeed, dead. Time for a new P&S.
Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.
