HELP: New Canon SX40 cannit raise the flash
May 24, 2012

When I press the flash button on the top left nothing happens. How do I get the flash up?The manual that came with the camera does not say. It just says if the raise the flash icon appears then I can use the flash. But it always show the icon with a line crossing it out.
