Hi, Mark here to try & help.

Error 5 on a cannon slr means flash did not pop up.
This is not unusual even on there high end slrs.
Have even seen it on new cameras out of the box.

  1. Push flash pop up button & gently assist flash to open.
  2. \015\012
  3. Clean inside flash compartment be very gentle, use warm soapy water on the end of a q-tip (do not soak q-tip just dampen), clean moving parts as well.
  4. \015\012
  5. let dry then remove any lent or cotton that might be left behind (wrapping tape works well for this just dab).
  6. \015\012
  7. Apply wd-40 with q-tip to moving parts again do not soak q-tip you just want a light coating .
  8. \015\012
  9. You will still have to do this again on occasion, & it will only help with fewer errors, you will still get them just not as often.
Cannon will have to redesign this flaw, but do not hold your breath, this is something that has been happening for awhile. You can send it in but still have same problem when it comes back.

Know that is not all good news. But it should Fix ya! & you have some idea of what is happening.
Please rate. Good Luck! & Happy Shooting!
Usually grit or something sticky causes the flash movement to seize. Window cleaning fluid on a cotton tip works best.Clean remaining residue with methylated spirits on another cotton tip. Water based cleaning should be avoided as it may corrode components.

My Canon EOS XTi keeps giving me an 05 error code which means that the pop up flash was impede . It does this every time even though I have made sure there is no obstruction at all. I tried gently to pop up the flash by hand but it won't budge and I am afraid to damage it by forcing it. Is there I lock on it somewhere that I don't know about? It says nothing at all about the issue in the operator's manual. Thanks, Bill

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware. At times I can shoot quite a number of shots before getting the error. But, once I start getting the error, it comes about every 4 or 5 shots. I believe this is very similar to the "Error 99" in the Canon 30D, which I also have. The 30D has been sent to Canon for repair and worked for a while and now it gets the Error 99 every coupl
