Optio RS 1000 - flash not working


I'm not really active in this forum but I really love Pentax cameras.

Today I bought an Optio RS 1000 in impulse.... maybe not a good idea without some research before, but it was rather inexpensive, I do some travel on monday and my only digital and small camera is the original optio s, which sometimes has problems with focusing... and I just wanted something small to take along... (and it was the only pentax model in the store)

but now I tried the new camera and the flash is not working... I'm inside the flash should be come up in automatic mode, but even if I set the flash manually there is no flash... I played with the settings but there never is a flash... and the pictures are definitly too dark...

is there anything I can try beside returning it to the store after my trip and take my beloved old optio s on my trip?

thanks for any help...

yes, return it because if you already tried the "force flash" feature and it didn't work then it's faulty.

Thank you.... I was afraid that this was the only thing... I just had the desperate hope that someone had the same problem and that it was a software problem or something but I guess it is rather a hardware problem... *sigh*
