Were you shooting rapid sequences with flash enabled? Maybe the flash was starting to overheat. Most modern flash units will shut themselves down to cool before irreparable damage occurs.

There are hints of an image in what you posted. It just appears to be massively underexposed. So I'll stick with my previous guess. The fact that you're using single shooting mode is irrelevant. You can push the button fast enough to overheat the flash if it's firing at full power. And it probably is, since no other light source appears to be active.

That is a good guess. Take the camera outside in bright daylight and shoot. The flash should not be needed there and if all shots come out ok you know it was probably the flash not firing after the first few indoor shots.

Or you didn't allow enough recovery time.  Full discharge takes time to recharge whether it is hot ot not.

This is a tiny flash and not designed to fill a big area.

Adding an external flash like the 320EX is an option to correct the issue.
