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

The flash on my Canon Rebel xti is not working. the flash pops up, but it is not lighting. I saw some responses about people using q-tips and alcohol, but I do not know what exactly you mean and it is a pin or something! Thanks! Dana

\015\012Basically you need to fix your Hot Shoe. :)
I think people were talking about cleaning the flash shoe, in case you use an external flash. However, there is a microswitch under the rails of the hotshoe on top of the camera that could be stuck in the down position.
\015\012If that's the case, some people use a toothpick to release it to the "up" position. If this switch is stuck, the camera thinks you have an external flash attached and ignores the popup flash.
\015\012The little pin people are talking about is the switch beneath the rails of the hotshoe. You might try to use the qtip and alcohol if it looks dirty. Take the camera in to a repair shop and just ask them where it is if you're still having a problem identifying it.
\015\012Good luck, and hope this helps.

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

Dear Bill,the Pop up flash activates a switch which sends it message that it is up. Now there can be few things which are stopping it from doing that.1. Something has stuck, so small piece of anything,in the switch and not letting it oper ... Digital Cameras

I was somehow roped into shooting a friend's night wedding this weekend, even though my photography "expertise" is entirely limited to shooting in natural light. I am a total amateur (and my friend knows this - I have told her over and over she's taking a big risk). So anyway, I've rented a flash and bracket and am looking for any/all the cram-style tips you can give me for programming the flash (it's a Nikon speedlight SB-800 on a D70) and the camera for best use. Thanks :)

First, you MUST practice with the flash before you shoot the wedding. If at all possible arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony with a friend/model to pose for you so you can practice with the settings until you understand what will and will not work. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Hi I am from Mexico I can say that I am an expert in Digital Cameras, specially Canon. Currently I am repairing a EOS Digital 350D, I changed the pins, but when i tried it, it shows ''CF error''. Could you give me a tip? I know if i changed the Main PCB the problem is solved but i think that some internally in the board was damaged, maybe some one can give a tip. Thanks in advance.

I have a Nikon D300. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I assume it's a setting issue. In low light situations even with the flash I can't seem to stop action or even properly light things. I have had any kind of issue like this on a camera before. In situations where I should be able to handhold I am using a monopod. I know there is enough light to not have to handhold, I mean I am using the flash. Frankly even with available light this should not be an issue.

Flash issue I have a flash issue with my three Moultrie D40 cameras. They all worked fine for about a year, then the flash strted to malfunction and right now the flash is present at about 1-3 times out of 200 pictures. It's the same for all cameras. I guess that it's either the flash itself or the "power component" (I don't know the name for this in english) that feeds the flash. Any knowledge or advices about this? Thanks /Stefan, Sweden

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting". Since that item is not described anywhere else and the only turnable dial is the "mode" dial, I assume that it means to press the flash mode arrow. When I do that nothing happens. The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre
