Canon Digital Rebel XT: error 05


\015 When I try to take pictures in the standard mode I get an error 05 message. I have read in my manual that it means something has obstructed the automatic flash pop-up, however, my flash has popped up. It pops up and then the release lever for the flash clicks twice. The manual says to turn the camera off and back on. It does the same thing (but clicks three times instead since the flash is already up). I am able to take pictures on other settings, just not the automatic setting (green box). Can I fix it on my own or do I have to take it to a dealer?\015

Answers :

I had the sticking and two-clicks problem also. I manually pulled the flash up, then took a Q-tip dipped in standard rubbing alcohol and ran it over all the sliding mechanism parts of the flash. Then I rubbed the dry end of the Q-tip over it all agan and it now works fine.
I have some experience on this problem. CHECK THE FOLLOWING BEFORE SENDING THE CAMERA TO REPAIRING. \015\012\015\012When the flash unit pops up a lever sends a signal to the camera. Try to pop up the flash, CHECK THAT THERE ARE "two" PINS ON EITHER SIDE OF THE FLASH. A longer one just appears "behind" the latching hook ON THE "RIGHT" OF THE CAMERA. \015\012\015\012IF THE LONG PIN IS BENT, DOES NOT POP UP OR EVEN MISSING TO LEAVE IT A HOLE, THEN THAT'S THE PROBLEM. \015\012\015\012It can be "repaired" by one-self (like I had did so) but you have to learn to dissemble the back, the front and then the top cover. If you have some skills, then NO PROBLEM.
