Flash will not fire on Canon SD780 IS Elph

\015 We just purchased (a couple of weeks ago) a Canon SD780 IS Elph and noticed that some of the pictures were dark, especially when zoomed. Even when setting the flash to on (not automatic), the flash still will not fire. The flash icon displays when taking a picture in low light, and the indicator lights are orange, so it appears that the camera accurately senses when the flash is needed.\015

Answers :

The flash circuit is defective. As it's only a couple weeks old, recommend just exchanging it for another from your place of purchase. You shouldn't be attempting repair while its under warranty.
