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

Flash won't fire; error code 005

\015 I have the same problem. The flash will not fire. If I use an external flash, it works. I think the problem is that the bulb is blown. A camera store said they would have to send it to Canon - $200+. Is there a "fix it yourself" solution?\015

Answers :

Error 5 is usually flash obstructed.\015\012Help it into the open position cycle the camera off and on and see if it will work when it's up.\015\012If error 5 persists check for two tiny black plastic rods about the size of a pencil lead sticking up. They should be free to move up and down and be spring loaded up. If they are stuck that's your problem. Iso-Propyl alcohol on a cotton bud MAY help but use it very sparingly.\015\012
\015\012If it works when up but is stiff to open and shut the hinge (right hand side viewed from the front) may be corroded. I disassembled mine cleaned rust off the hinge and it's fine. Make sure you record which side arm (that limits the travel of the flash) is which and which way up it goes. With those two off there are three small screws holding the flash together. remove them and slide the flash cover forward. Now you can ease out the bearing (the wires go through the middle so you can't take it right off) and clean it.\015\012
