I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges
I don't know if this will help and this post is two months old. The \015\012camera store may be right that the synchronization is the issue which \015\012tends me to point a finger at the external flash. There are at least \015\012three different fla ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
Canon has announced a problem with some of the CCDs used in its digital cameras and camcorders which causes images not to appear or appear distorted. This is due to a malfunction that means the wiring in the CCDs may come undone if exposed to high temperature or high humidity. The affected cameras are the PowerShot A60, PowerShot A70, PowerShot A75, PowerShot A300, PowerShot A310, Digital IXUS V3, Digital IXUS II, Digital IXUS IIs. Canon advises anyone experiencing these problems to contact them
Oh it's more than just the cameras you list, and also includes some video cameras.\015\012\015\012Canon will fix these for you for free if they're experiencing symptoms of CCD failure (black, lined, discolored, or distorted images). This ... Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.
Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras

Sorry I didn't see this and respond to your post earlier Maxorga. \015\012This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager.

Flash Problem Rebel XT flash icon shows next to "busy" in the view finder when I press the shutter button. If I attempt to take the photo the flash does not work. If I continue to hold the shutter half way down, then release it I get Err 99. I am using genuine Canon lens' and have tried all three. I also connected my 420EX external flash and it also does not flash. Any suggestions are deeply appreciated. Thanks

After I have detached my external flash (Nissin Digital Speedlite Di622), my Canon EOS 60D does not recognize the fact that the external flash is already detached. Thus, this does not allow the built-in flash to pop out when needed. I have tried turning the power off and on again. The problem persists.

Check to see if you have the flash set on "red-eye". This causes the flash to pre-flash to eliminate red-eye in your photos. It's a real pain for most photos but if you're shooting in low light, it will eliminate the red-eye. ... Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera
Flash Pictures I have a Canon XTi and am using a 580EX flash with it. The problem is, I have to set the flash at plus 1 1/2 to 2 stops to get a decent exposure. Is there something that I am doing wrong?
All canons tend to underexpose to avoid blowing the highlights. I still think this is a poor design / calibration of the light meter. A search of the net will reveal some folks who sent their xti's in to canon to be fixed and got them back better. Ca ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
Dark images canon powershot sx100 seems that every pic is dark even with flash and in various light conditions. It seems that the right side of the control dial (where the flash icon is) doesn't allow me to change the flash type as it used too. nothing happens, can't choose red-eye reduction or anything.

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power goes on and off straight away. At first I thought this was a problem with the battery so I have fully charged the battery and the problem is still the same. What do I need to do to correct the problem? Thanks

Hello. The flash on my Canon IXUS 980 IS seems unable to work. The camera is about 2 years old. I have contacted Canon who advised taking out the battery for at least 30 mins and fully recharging it, which yielded nothing helpful. Is this a common issue and can it be fixed cheaper than the minimum £60 that a Canon service shop requires? Thanks for any help.
