When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it. There is no history

When I take a picture, I get a message that says, "The built in flash's auto pop-up was obstructed. Turn the power switch to off and then on again. This happens for every setting except Landscape. When I turn the power off and on, it does nothing.

Except landscape the auto light sensor detects that the flash must be triggered. So when the sensor detects low light it commands to the processor to release the lock on the flash unit to pop up. But due to some technical defect- possibl ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have a Canon EOS400D. Every time I try to take a flash photo there is a repeated clicking sound with error message 5 saying, "the built-in flash's auto pop-up was obstructed" yet I don't see anything obstructing it.

The flash up switch is not working properly. It probably just needs to be disassembled and cleaned. About a $125 repair at most shops.Hope this helps.Wes Kauffman ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

I have a Canon Rebel. When I try to take pictures the flash "hood" or something automatically pops up but somehow the light doesn't flash and all I hear are 3 clicks. Then the screen says error 05. Would appreciate any advice on this problem. Thanks!

Aprilm, \015\012\015\012\015\012Error 5 is a flash error. What sounds like it happening is the mechanical part of the flash is working allowing for the pop-up, but the camera thinks there is an external flash present. A repair shop should ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

My camera was dropped and since then it won't take pictures using the flash. The screen keeps saying "F 2.8 1/45" while the flash is charging, but never takes a picture. The camera takes pictures fine without the flash. What does this mean?

This means the flash or flash circuitry broke due to the drop. The camera will take pictures as long as the flash is not required. Only resolution is to have the camera repaired, which unfortunately may cost more than the camera is worth. ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

Flash Error Hi there, bought this camera about 6 months ago. I'm intermittently getting a problem with the pop-up flash. It pops up fine, but the screen gives me an error telling me it hasn't and won't take any shots. Have to keep switching it off and on and hoping it will work again. Sometimes it's a couple of days before it works again. It will take shots when I switch the camera to the 'no flash' setting, so it does seem to be just the flash. The error says that the flash release is jamming,

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

When I turn on my camera to take a picture the display screen is completely black. If I try and take a picture nothing comes out. The whole picture is completely black.

I bought this camera but don't know how to operate it. No clear instructions with it. Where can I find a manual? It has a memory card that inserts into the bottom of it. I turn the power on and take the picture but how do I save the picture. I am confused also because on what few instructions I have says it does not come with a memory card, so what kind of card did I insert into it? I also don't know how to save the pictures when I take a picture I can see it on the monitor but a pop up says

My Pentax W90 camera won't stop taking pictures when I turn it on. At first, it would take 2 pictures without me pressing the shutter and the screen would get "locked" (no menu or other buttons would do anything). Then, after changing the battery, the camera continually takes pictures until I turn it off. The flash goes off with each picture. I took it in the ocean with me and I noticed it started while I was snorkeling. I don't think I got anywhere near the 20 foot depth limit. I dried it

My Canon EOS rebel suddenly won't take pictures in dim light. The flash pops up and blinks and blinks trying to register the image but won't ever autofocus and take the picture. The light has to be very bright for it to take a picture. I have gone through all of the settings and everything seems to be correct. Any thoughts?

To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching ...

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

In addition to resetting all the camera settings you should also choose the "clear all custom functions" option that is also available from the same menu. Once that's done. Put the camera in Full Auto mode and see if the issue is resolved. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Just had my Canon Powershot s1 is flash explode in my face at a meeting with over 30 people attending. I took a picture, the flash went up and suddenly it popped so loud that people ducked. There was also a fire/smoke smell coming from the flash area. Very scary. Those witnessing said they would back me up if suit filed. Checked the batteries and they work fine. The camera will take pictures still but without a flash. Hear of anything like this before? Recall issue?
