Introduction

If your Canon Powershot SD1000 has a broken or faulty flash unit, use this guide to remove and replace it.

A faulty flash unit may have a weak discharge, resulting in a dimly lit photo or failure to discharge entirely.

The flash unit of the Canon Powershot SD1000 is built into the main body of a camera, and will require disassembly of the main body.

Before using this guide, check the function settings of your camera to find what mode the flash is set to. Oftentimes, when set to "Auto," the flash will not discharge.
