Flash not working hoe can you tell if light bulb is burnt
Hi Tamara. Only a technical can tell, when opening the flash. (In your case the whole camera.) Sometimes, when you look very good, you can see the light bulb is black on one (or both) side(s).
But usually the technician would measure the high voltage on the capacitor and wheel the flash is triggered he will check if the thyristor fires. But not being a technician, please don't open the camera and never play with an open flash light, because the voltage even in a small camera can be very hight.

Canon powershot SD750 will not turn on.
There are several things that could cause this.
1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?
2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD750 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.
3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.

I accidentally reformatted by digital
Yes-- DO NOT take any additional photos with this card or write any additional information to the card at all, or you will permanently overwrite the photos. Lock the card by sliding the "lock" tab on the side of the SD card.
You can use an "undelete" utility to recover the photos. Some camera shops or computer shops may be able to provide this service to you.
(Reformatting the card will make the card appear to have 0 photos stored, but it will not actually erase the information completely, so this specialized software can often times recover your images.)
