Answers :

Rotate the mode dial on top to AUTO and take a picture indoors. Did the flash work? If not, next check the tightness of all screws around the perimeter of the camera (these are sometimes used as a safety feature to turn off flash if the camera is opened). If a screw is loose, tighten it. If a screw is missing, you'll need to find a replacement. Usually only one or two screws are used as the safety switch. Try swapping out one of the other screws as a replacement. Finally, if no screws are missing, and the camera does not flash in AUTO indoors, then unfortunately the flash mechanism has failed. This is difficult to replace, and is only recommended to be repaired by a Canon service center.

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting". Since that item is not described anywhere else and the only turnable dial is the "mode" dial, I assume that it means to press the flash mode arrow. When I do that nothing happens. The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre

I can turn my sd1000 on, the flash works, everything works. The only thing is that I can't see what's going on through the lcd, but when I take a picture the picture does come up.

Just bought my used camera from Salvation Army. I know I shouldn't expect it to work, but it does in a way. I'd like to know why when I turn the camera on, the ready light flashes a few times (7, maybe), but does nothing else. I can't hear inside the camera to see if anything else is trying to function. I hooked the camera up to the computer, and nothing happened. Not sure if this is because I didn't install the CD needed.
