Flash will not pop up. Camera was returned to Canon but not repaired because warranty had expired. Problem was diagnosed as software, not mechanical-estimate $300.00. Flash did pop up once and operate properly but refuses to do so again. Is there a way to manually deploy it? The rest of the camera works fine.


This also happened to my camera and I am able to pop the flash up manually by flicking it up with the edge of my fingernail. It helps to simultaneously press down on the piece just above the microphone (I think) which is just above the viewfinder. Th ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

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 don't know if this will help and this post is two months old. The \015\012camera store may be right that the synchronization is the issue which \015\012tends me to point a finger at the external flash. There are at least \015\012three different fla ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.


Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras

After I have detached my external flash (Nissin Digital Speedlite Di622), my Canon EOS 60D does not recognize the fact that the external flash is already detached. Thus, this does not allow the built-in flash to pop out when needed. I have tried turning the power off and on again. The problem persists.
