I was charged $5.00 then .$14.00 now you want $26 and I don't have any start at an answer. What is wrong with my camera, how much to get it fixed, where do I send it.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 1 year ago

You can ignore any automated offers that may pop up.

Has the flash fully popped up?

What happens if you try holding the flash fully upright with some pressure on it, to ensure the tiny built-in switch is activated?

What zip code area are you in so I can advise on a place in your area?

I flipped the flash up and held it up and flash worked. before this happened I had to put new batteries. What was nin were copper top and had never been used but they were dead. This is the second time this happened. On vacation I used Ever ready heavy duty I only took a few pictures. I laid it off as maybe old batteries. I changed to copper top and haven't used it and they were dead today. Any thoughts? But the flash did work.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 1 year ago

Ok, the flash will also not work if the batteries are not fully charged - you will need to use alkaline camera batteries for best results.

Camera batteries have a higher mA rating, e.g. Energizer Ultimate:

Earlier you ask for a Zip Code. Mine is 3652. Are there any shops near? I have always used Duracell copper top. I have replaced these with Rayovac Alkaline says they last as long as Duracell
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 1 year ago

I'll need the 5-digit part of your zip code please.

If you are using the same batteries that always worked, but recently they seems ineffective, then there may be corrosion or contamination on the battery contact terminals inside the camera, preventing them from making good contact; or the flash circuitry is defective and not functioning correctly.
