Internal flash not working because of non compatible flash installed

\015 I installed an external flash last night and my Canon Rebel XS EOS says its not compatible. The problem is that now the internal flash will not come on and says that the external flash is still attached. How do I get my internal flash to work again?\015

Answers :

\015\012Look at the external flash socket.
\015\012With the camera in "normal position", i.e., poiting away from you, you shoul see a very small (I realy mean very small) piece of plastic under the rigth inside of the flash shoe... it is the "external flash sensor". It probably is stuck. Work with the point of a knife to try and release it.
\015\012In more detail, if you look carefully at the external flash shoe, the are two metal pieces that will help create some pressure. So the flash holder (shoe) is made of two parts: a very rigid one and the metal blades that create the pressure. Look under the blade located nearest to the shuter button.
\015\012If you can locate the plastic piece (black in my camera, but can be white) try to have unstuck.
\015\012Worked with my camera.
