Answers :

Don't blame the Fuji Designers for this fault - it was the Fuji Bean Counters that are at fault - the flash design is for TWO springs, the plastic casting has the holes for a second spring on the other side - which wasn't fitted so 100% overloaded the single spring mount.\012
\012Anyway if you are brave and handy you CAN fix this.\012
\012First remove the back of the camera - 3 screws in battery bay, 1 in the side above the memory card door, The two rear most on the bottom, two in the USB/video door, and the rear most on the left hand carry strap bracket.\012
\012Carefully prise the back rearward about 5 to 8 mm.\012
\012Now take a look at the two screw holes under the flash (when popped - or flopped out now that is broken) now go and bend a screwdriver of the type you used for the previous screws - you will need a 90 degree bend very close to the tip to fit in this gap and be able to turn the screws a few degrees at at time.\012
\012A little at a time lock the screwdriver into the screws and undo until the flash cover comes off.\012
\012You can then slide the shaft out of the flash to release the spring which will have the end that should fit into the broken bracket now sitting proud..\012
\012Make a suitable bracket like the one in the photo attached to slide over the broken plastic bracket.\012
\012make sure it fits really well the epoxy into position.\012
\012Getting the spring back in is a fiddly job - I found the best way was to fit the end of the spring into the new bracket, slide the shaft just into the spring - the lever the other end of the spring down into the back of the flash body and then slide the shaft all the way into place.\012
\012I did have to file down the little plastic "blade" inside the lid which presumably is designed to assist the the (now broken) bracket from breaking....\012
\012reverse the dis-assembly and now you should have a working flash bb61266_2.jpgbb61266_1.jpg
I e-mailed Fuji, turns out my camera has a 3year warranty, so I'm sending it in, Free fix plus the cost on shipping, but hay, I can accept that.

My EOS 400D flash sometimes pops up in bright daylight in full auto mode. I sent it back to Cannon who returned it saying no fault found. I then began to think that the problem was the way I held the camera and that I may be obscuring the (light?) sensor near the grip with my hand. After not using the camera for a while I am now taking shots again and the flash pop up problem has re-appeared. I am now sure I am not blocking the sensor. Any ideas?

In full auto mode, the camera tries to use fill flash, when it detects a backlit scene (e.g. a person in front of a window).

Hi, I have just bought the Panasonic FZ45 and seem to have a problem with the flash. It will not pop up automatically when in "IA" mode. The display actually shows the symbol indicating that the flash is forced off. Have tried to change this using the REC set up menu but to no avail (incidentally the option to force the flash off appears in the user manual, but not on the REC menu).
