Nikon D50 -flash won't fire

\015 Have just purchase a secondhand Nikon D50 but the built in flash will not fire in any mode. Through the view finder the flash ready indicator shows ready. Do the flash bulbs blow and if so can they be replaced or can you suggest any other reason. Thank you\015

Answers :

Try pushing the flash forward just a tiny bit. this model of Nikon has a built in problem with the flash popping up too hard. You can also try to "soften" the pop-up action with your finger instead of just letting it snap up into position.

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.

What needs to be done? I purchased this lens last December (2009). Is
