Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera ?

Flash on Nikon D50 will not latch down

\015 What's the best way to fix/repair the flash that comes attached with a Nikon D50? The flash doesnt want to stay down. Seems like the latch is not catching anymore. Can this be repaired or does it have to be shipped back to Nikon?\015

Answers :

If you have a fine screwdriver, remove the two screws underneath the pop up flash housing and remove the upper housing. BE VERY CAREFUL OF THE 300V at wires under the cover. You can see where the latch catches on a disk with steps - rotate the disk to a lower step and it will catch. Otherwise, an independent repair shop can probably do it while you wait for less than $40 USD.

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?
