Canon 350D flash PCB problems

Hi I got a problem with my camera flash. It was not working I checked flash PCB and transistor Toshiba GT8G132G was blowed. I have ordered new and after I few flashes it blowed again. Then I have replaced it with close analog. Now flash fires but it recharges very slow and says Error 99 and can not make preflashes during slow rechagre. I have ordered from ebay new flash PCB and change it again same problem it needs arround 20 second to be fully chaged to 325V and when it fires voltage drops till 315V and need about 6 seconds to go back to 325V to be ready for the next shoot. Also without flash connected when powering up camera it continues to rechargre slow and impulse transformer is always singing while recharging on both of the PCBS.

SOURCE: Canon A95 gone dead

I ain't so lucky I'm in the UK too!!!! Generally speaking the cost pf packing, shipping repair, at any level is well on the way to the price of the next more recent higher specification device. Judging by the way the Megapixels go up by the week seemingly, settling for a replacement camera is usually the best option. I had a cheap[old] Fuji come my way because it had gone blurred and blue - sure sign of a CCD failure as this was at some time the subject of a recall for the problem I checked out Fuji Their response was to say no longer repaired but has a 1/3 off a new camera when I quoted a reference number. That seems to be the way to go.

SOURCE: Canon A540 flash charge not holding

Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to a advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

SOURCE: shooting in low light with a canon rebel xt

Hello parr_alp,
Please keep in mind that when shooting in low light, you will ALWAYS get some amount of blur when you are hand holding the camera unless you use a flash. The only way to increase your shutter speed is to crank up your ISO setting to 800, 1200, 1600, etc. If there is no tripod handy, brace yourself against a stationary object and remember to keep your elbows tucked down near your body when shooting (no sense in holding up your arms, too).
There is no way to increase the ISO limits of your camera while maintaining quality of your images. And once again, you will ALWAYS get a certain amount of blur when hand holding the camera. 
The external flash not firing is an entirely separate issue. This could have to do with your metering, a bad flash, bad connection in the hot shoe, what shooting mode you're in — the possibilities are numerous. The next time your flash doesn't work, write down all the settings of your camera and keep track of them (i.e. shooting mode, metering mode, flash settings, current lighting situations, etc.) You may start to notice a pattern and perhaps we can help you here.
Anyway, happy shooting, and if this response was helpful, please rate it! Thank you!
Jeff

SOURCE: err 99 in canon 350D

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

Does the flash open?
Open the flash and try alcohol or purell hand sanitizer on the hinges and release mechanism. Let it soak in and work it in by moving the flash hood repeatedly up and down
Also check the canon eos 350d service manual from below link:

Error 5 on Canon eos 350D


Hi there,

Well first of all you can try a full reset, Pull both batteries out -the normal one, and the date/time one. If your camera is older (>2 yrs), it may be time to replace that battery..... anyway Put a new one in, and then put in the freshly-charged main battery, that might clear the error. If further you have the same problem then something is causing the flash to stick. Press the button and pull gently on the flash. Post comments for more help or information needed.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Canon EOS 350D flashes error 05 and flash won't pop up


I had the same problem but found that manually popping the flash up about 10 or 12 times restored the auto pop-up function.

Hope that this helps

Sounds like loose part in Canon 350D / Rebel XT


This is nothing to worry about. The sound is made by the metal linkage inside the flash housing. Pop up the flash and touch the linkage with your fingers. You will see there is a little movement. This movement is enough to make the sound you hear.

Canon EOS 350D


I don't have a 350D, and don't have a list of codes but I would guess the error code refers to the Compact Flash card. In the instructions to my camera, a 400D, the solution is to remove and reinstall the card, if there is still a problem, you might have to format the card. Hopefully this will help!

Canon 350d slr flash problems


fiist the built in flash isn't super powerfull , try the green cornered (auto) mode inside home, be shure to make it a dark site , zoom in on a subject in the dark and the camera should pop up the flash, loading the flesh costs a bit time and power so be shure that the accu is full , if the flash doen't react check in the manual if it isn't switdhed off , bur in auto mode it should popup and flash , if you take pictures in the dark often a lens with a greater light sensivity is a usefull option , normal lenses go from 1:3.3 - 5.6 (for example) a light ensivity lense is a f2.8 , f1.8 or f1.4 in diafragma . lenses tha have the same diafraga (f2.8) over the entire range are more expensive and ussually better than a lens from f2.6 - f 4 in the same zoom range
