Canon XTi built in flash

\015 The flash on my XTi won't stay closed. It won't stay closed when I push it back down-any suggestions? Thanksdr syn\015

Answers :

With the flash in the up position and looking at the flash housing, there should be a small, metal hook. Make sure it's not bent or distorted. I should be straight and spring loaded all the way towards the front of the body. Check for freedom of movement also.

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges

I have a Canon Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and tried all modes expecting that the ones listed in the manual as using a flash would work, but they dont, it never pops up. I lifted up the flash with my fingernail manually, and then tried taking a picture where a flash was most definitely needed, but it still had a long delay, no flash, and
