Powershot S1 Digital Camera: Flash won't fire


\015 I have a Canon Powershot S1 Digital Camera. Recently I observed that the Flash pops when there is not sufficient light but won't fire.\015\012\015\012So I can't take snaps at night.\015\012\015\012Please help !!!\015

Answers :

Make sure the camera is not in Document mode . Document takes a picture with added contrast so text stands out. \015\012\015\012Make sure the camera is not set to Infinity focus . When you select Infinity Focus, the camera automatically turns off the flash and auto focus so you get sharp, clear pictures.\015\012\015\012Make sure the camera is set to Fill, Auto, or Red Eye flash. See your camera manual for details about setting the flash.
You can change the flash intensity. Refer to manual. I have seen that many times getting set to mininum value to save power

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
