Nikon D90. Cannot Lock Built In Flash down

\015 Even with the power switched off the pop up Flash will not lock down. I took around 150 photos at a function with Auto setting on and the flash did get used for most photos. I would clip it back in place after each time I finished with it. I cannot recall any action that could have caused any damage to the flash clip. I have only had the camera 6 weeks and am very careful and gentle with it. The repair centre says it will be 2 to 3 weeks to get my camera back. ****. And they suggest that its damage caused by me and not covered by warranty. BULL. How common is this problem and is it a design problem??\015

Hi, I've just recieved my nikon d90 back from a repair and service, and although everything appears to be working fine, whenever I want to change shooting modes,( auto, P, M, flash off etc), they only work once I have selected them, and then turned the camera off and back on. In other words I cannot be shooting in the Auto mode and then switch to "flash off auto"....all that happens is that the auto focus works but the shutter will not operate. If I switch the camera off and on however, I can t
