Canon EOS Rebel XSi pop up flash won't "pop down"

\015 Canon EOS Rebel XSi 1 year 3 months old. Two days ago, after using the pop-up flash in a manual mode, it would not close. Nothing is broken off, I examined it closely and compared with the same model a friend has. But 2 days later the flash will still not stay closed. It pops right backup again. I do NOT want to have to use duct tape to close the flash on such an expensive camera! Any help is appreciated.\015

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

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.
