Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera ?
Internal Flash Does Not Fire
\015 Do I have a lemon or not? (I think maybe). I'm an experienced Canon DSLR user and bought the G10 a week ago to have a more portable p&s. I have read the manual and used it in different conditions, but cannot seem to get the flash to fire, even in a dark room (either with automatic settings or with manual ones). I'm ready to send it back, but want to make sure that I'm not missing something. Anybody else have this problem or have an opinion?\015
You should open it manually (just slide it up), only then it will fire.

I have a Nikon D90 with 18-105 mm lens. Lately, the onboard flash has not been firing even when I try to enforce it by having the flash popped up. It will only fire if I do one of the following: 1) unmount the lens from the camera body and then re-mount it back on, which the flash will fire maybe once or twice and that's it!, or 2) switch on a different lens which definitely works with the flash firing every single time. What needs to be done? I purchased this lens last December (2009). Is

External flash will not override internal flash - the subject ends up with very harsh over-lighting. in other words, both flashes go off when i have the camera flash set "on". this is with the hot shoe function "off". if i turn the hot shoe function "on", then neither flash works (internal or external).

I've tried various modes including auto night etc but it won't stop flickering (just sparking sounds and a flickering flash like a light bulbs does just before it blows).also I have tried taking images using the basic auto mode in a low lit area and the flash pops up but does not fire.

The flash on my Kodak V570 does not appear to be working. There are 4 settings and I put the setting on the flash so that it fires every time you take a picture, regardless of the lighting conditions. Only thing is, the flash does not fire so I have to assume it is broken unless you have other ideas.

Hello! When I attach the flash on my Nikon D200, it fires even while I'm focusing or just when I touch the trigger button. Any ideas? The flash is not firing like that while not on the camera.

Hi, My D80 has suddenly developed a fault, where it registers the flash as open and in use even when its shut. This has the effect of syncing the shutter speed and limiting it to 1 200th in all modes. In addition, whilst the flash button will still change the flash mode using the command dials, it won't open the flash- almost like the camera thinks the flash is already open. I have tried prising open the flash, and it still doesn't fire even when open. There was no indication of a problem previ
