Rebel xt; flash won't fire

\015 The internal flash on my rebel XT will not pop up automatically, nor when I press the flash release button. If I open it manually, it still won't fire. Someone suggested that the 'microswitch' is depressed, but I don't know where it is or how to correct it if that is the problem.\015

Answers :

Two tiny black plastic rods, one on each side under the flash. From the front the one on the left is much longer than the one on the right. Check with your finger if they are spring loaded and move freely. If either is stuck down that is you problem. You could try a TINY amount of Iso-Propyl alcohol on a cotton bud to clean them if stuck.\015\012

I have a Nikon D90 with 18-105 mm lens. Lately, the onboard flash has not been firing even when I try to enforce it by having the flash popped up. It will only fire if I do one of the following: 1) unmount the lens from the camera body and then re-mount it back on, which the flash will fire maybe once or twice and that's it!, or 2) switch on a different lens which definitely works with the flash firing every single time. What needs to be done? I purchased this lens last December (2009). Is
