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

When I take a picture, I get a message that says, "The built in flash's auto pop-up was obstructed. Turn the power switch to off and then on again. This happens for every setting except Landscape. When I turn the power off and on, it does nothing.


Answers :

Except landscape the auto light sensor detects that the flash must be triggered. So when the sensor detects low light it commands to the processor to release the lock on the flash unit to pop up. But due to some technical defect- possible lock not releasing the flash pop up- the flash does not pop up . This gives back the fault message to the processor to reset. Hence when you switch on/off the fault resets.
\015\012Now the solution is to check the release mechanism of the flash as your flash is switched. Assist the flash to move up , check if there is any obstruction, any dirt accumulated to keep the lock tight or a fault on the solenoid that is needed to release the flash.
\015\012if you are able to open the camera - only if technically able please attempt- then this section must be checked, the lock and the release solenoid and the voltage to the solenoid to release.

Power doesn't work properly. When I turn off camera with power button, lense stays out. When I turn on, the lense goes in then back out again, but after a few seconds, I get the message: "Please turn camera off then on again." If I don't do anything, the camera will turn off by itself, and the lense will go in. Battery is fully charged, and nothing dramatic happened to start this problem...
