Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera ?

PowerShot SD300 Flash Won't Charge

\015 When I press the shutter button the flash charging symbol (a blinking lightening bolt) appears. It continues to blink, the flash never charges, and the shutter won't fire. If I turn off the flash, the camera works fine. Any suggestions?I recently replaced the LDC panel on the camera, so maybe I did something during the repair??\015

Hi

Yes its very possible that something was damaged during the repair. If you scratched a board you can break an electrical connection between two parts.

The thing to try first would be replacing the flash, look for a used one as it will be cheapest. If that doesnt work, then you have to replace the main PCB.

If you need parts, please let me know, its what we do.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com
