Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Pop-Up flash - Rebel xti


\015 When I try to take a photograph that requires flash, the pop-up flash does not come up. There are three distinct sounds similar to an auto wind motor. My display pop-up says , "Error: Err05 The built-in flash's auto pop-up was obstructed. Turn power switch and again."There is nothing obstructing the pop-up, externally visible to me. Turning the power off and on again does not "correct" the problem. The camera simply resets and continues to operate in this manner for all exposures except for the no-flash mode.\015

Answers :

You will need to send the camera for servicing. There's a lever mechanism inside the flash unit which is responsible for popping up the flash. Since it is a mechanical device, it is sometimes prone to failure. I suggest not to put manual pressure to force the flash to come out, as it may cause permanent damage. Instead, send the camera for service.

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
