Hello, I bought a Canon Powershot S3IS. Everything works besides the flash. I checked inside and the Flash Tube came broken. I don’t know the size of the thing. I want to buy and replace it so my flash could work. Please help.

Greetings,

At 18 yrs old, the camera is retired and no longer supported or repairable by Canon.  The parts dept doesn't  usually keep parts for retired products either.  You would probably have to find this part as a pull from another broken camera or maybe on eBay or AliExpress.  KEH is a good source for used cameras.  I don't believe they sell parts.  It's age is the challenge in this case.😐

This link may help you if you're determined to try to fix it yourself. Or it might help you to decide if you really want to just replace the camera. 🤔
