Dead flash


New Member
Less than 3 months of owning my G5, the flash is dead and refuses to operate.

Any ideas on what may be wrong?
I assume you referring to the on board flash unit in the camera and not the compact flash card. If indeed the on board flash won't fire when required, a trip to the Canon service dept is warranted.
