Canon powershot A630 blinking flash graphic

\015 When trying to take a picture using the flash, the flash graphic flashes and the camera will not take a picture.\015

Answers :

You have to unscrew the left side of the camera (if you're looking at the back of the camera, the side that is right beside the flash). Then, at the very top, with a tiny screw driver, just gently tap the black flash compartment and it should work after that. I've had the flash problem twice in the past year and both times I got it to work again by taping on it. Hope it helps!

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.
