It won't pop out in certain exposure modes, like manual. Try it on auto. If not, GENTLY try to pry it up - sometimes they get stuck from dirt of being hit.

SOURCE: Shutter button problem

This may be the same problem that requires you to press the LOCK button to actually take a picture. I found a solution and have posted to the questions mentioning the LOCK problem. Anyways, here goes, if that is not the problem please disregard what follows:



Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

Cheers.

I would suggest taking it to a technician to have it repaired. It does not seem like something you should try to fix yourself.

Nikon D5100 camera flash does not pop-up. Any suggestions?


You can't pop up the flash in the Auto mode. In this mode the camera decides whether to use the flash or not.

Try switching to one of the PSAM modes. Does the flash then pop up when you push the flash button?

Internal flash won't work anymore


Try a factory reset. In the menu go to the third spanner and select 'Clear settings'

To pop up the flash put the camera in manual mode (M) and press the flash release button and it should pop up.

When I try to take a picture the camera tries 2 or 3 times then I get a err05. (built in flash auto pop-up was iobtructed.) But I can't find anything obstructing it


Alot of times there is residue that has got stuck in between the flash cover and top cover. Turn the camera on and with your nail pry open the flash as you push the flash pop up button with your other hand! Then with alcohol and a couple of q-tips clean every part under the flash pop up. When the camera is facing you there is a arm that rests slightly forward on the left side clean there and on the right side in the back there is a piece of plastic sticking out of the cover. Its black in color clean that with alcohol depress it a few times with the q-tip soaked in alcohol and the arms that push up the flash are silver, clean those real good. Alot of times when a camera is sent in for this it is usually a result of residue of some sort getting in between the flash pop up and the top cover! Even if it looks clean, clean it anyways. Also sometimes the flash pop up is slightly bent you can bend it in place with your hand. Just a little a a time and then try to depress the flash pop up button and see if it works.

Flash will not close on Canon EOS 7D


All you need to do is set the camera to shutter priority other non-automatic mode, hold the flash shut and hold the flash button next to the lens opening. You'll hear a motor and a click and it should latch shut.

My Rebel T1i's built in flash stopped working after I used a 580EX external flash on it. It won't even show up on the LCD screen.


Really? the best solution available is to take the top of your camera off?
i don't think so.
Here's a very simple solution I found to get the flash to pop up without destroying your camera.

the person suggests using a fingernail. (s)he must have long fingernails. I had to use a piece of paper folded in half. Swipe the paper from back to front, as in, from the eyepiece side towards the lens side.

Flash doesn't work


Check your flash setting (the button with a jagged lightning bolt) to make sure that you have the camera set for auto flash. Push the flash setting button until you see a bold A next to the lightning bolt. Sometimes the user inadvertently covers or even just touches the flash unit while powering on the camera, preventing the unit from popping up. Many Kodak cameras have a manual button (marked with the lightning bolt and the word OPEN) to pop the unit up so that it will work for you. Hope this helps.

Canon XTi Built in Flash


I found the answer and fixed my flash. Look on http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=00ODWf

This will describe how, if you have been using a speedlite alot, than the little tab under the shutter release side of the hot shoe can get bent down thus constantly pressing down (toward the bottom of the camera) the small button which deactivates the pop-up1.gif flash even when the speedlite is not attached. Just bend the tab up a little with a jewler's screwdriver, turn the camera off and on and voila!! Fixed!!! Dan describes pushing the tab down, but on the xti, the tab needs to be bent up to release the flash deactivation switch and fix the problem. Thanks to Dan D on photonet for saving me a service call.
