Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera ?

Nikon D50 Digital camera - Pop up flash won't flash

\015 The camera is 1.5 years old and hardly used. After having it for about 1 year, noticed that the pop-up flash pops up however the flash doesn't flash. Is this an easy repair. I tried all settings but no flash. A year ago I researched this and found many occurences of this problem with this camera. Is this a known problem? It is easily fixed? Would it be cheaper to get a top mount flash attachment? I want this fixed. All picture opportunites are inside and with no flash, have a useless camera. Please help. Reside in Allen Tx (30 miles north of Dallas).\015\012Thanks\015\012Jack J\015

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that? I am normally an old school film camera person - i dont know much about this at all... thanks kathleen
