Flash will not pop up. Camera was returned to Canon but not repaired because warranty had expired. Problem was diagnosed as software, not mechanical-estimate $300.00. Flash did pop up once and operate properly but refuses to do so again. Is there a way to manually deploy it? The rest of the camera works fine.


This also happened to my camera and I am able to pop the flash up manually by flicking it up with the edge of my fingernail. It helps to simultaneously press down on the piece just above the microphone (I think) which is just above the viewfinder. Th ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Lens inoperative? When camera is turned on, there is no image on the screen, just flashing horizontal lines. It will take a picture and the flash goes off, but the result is a picture of the flashing horizontal lines. Any fix for this? Is the camera repairable? Would we send it back to Canon for repair? What would be the approximate cost? Thank you.


Cost of repair is free with free shipping too! This definitely sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon will fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Pleas ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

I am unable to suppress flash on my Fujifilm s9100 in any mode that supports flash. Even with the flash down it still fires except in Landscape scene mode and Super Macro mode. I do not know where the switch for the flash is located and will likely send it into Fuji for repair, but wanted to check to see if anyone has experienced this problem before I do so.

Evil flash there is either something wrong with my flash or the light meter, but 99% of the time when i go to take a picture, the flash goes off. hood up or down, it doesn't matter. it seems that the only time the flash doesn't go off is in extremely bright light, i called customer support and was basically told to send it away for a million years to have it repaired, but is there possibly a more simple solution?


It appears that there is something wrong with the sensor that senses when the pop-up flash is up or down. Try cleaning the whole area with compressed air, especially the little gaps in the mechanism. The part that is defective costs next to nothing, ... Fuji FinePix S9000 Zoom Digital Camera

My husband dropped my sony dsc-H10 in the river for a very quick swim. We let the camera dry out and it actually works great now, except for the flash. I can turn the flash on and it will click like the flash is working during a picture but it never lights up. I am wondering if there is an easy way to replace the flash or should i try to send it in for repair.

Horitonzal lines We sent the camera back to canon thinking it had the ccd problem and it would be under warranty for that. They said the repair bill would be $100 and that it wasn't the ccd problem, but they wouldn't tell us what the repair would be for, so we had them send it back to us, unrepaired. Do you have any insight? From all that I read, we do have a ccd issue, but I'm not an expert.

HP PHOTOSMART Have you ever seen a HP Photo Smart 315 Digital camera with the error code ERR 204.

Freeze Up I just got my first digital camera, chock full of buttons, dials, wheels and screens. ;-) Anyway after a few hours of playing with it - it locked up...no buttons worked.(even the power button) I had to finally remove the battery from the live camera to reset it. Since then it has happened almost half a dozen times in the last few weeks. Has anyone seen this phenomenon ? Is there cure or is it necessary to send it for warranty repair.(return to store)
