I do not know allot about the s5090, but I can give you general information based on how most Nikon pocket cameras are designed to work. If the Nikon is set to one of the automatic modes it is designed to prevent you from taking a picture if it senses that there is insufficient light to get a properly exposed picture. The camera may be telling you to rase the flash because it needs more light. Also, somewhere on your camera there is probably a menu that allows you to choose the flash mode. It may be in your regular menus or, if your camera has a round left-righ-up-down switch on the back, you can select the flash mode by pushing up and then using the right-left keys to choose the flash mode. The mode you select is locked in when you push the button in the center. In general, the modes are automatic (the camera decides when flash is needed), red eye reduction (the flash activates twice; once to cause your subjects eye's iris to close and the second to take the picture), flash always (flashes regardless of the ambient light) and flash off.
I had a similar problem my camera kept telling me to raise the flash even when it was raised. I opened the back of the camera taking out the little screws on the back only. To the right right below the flas is a switch that registers when the flash is raised. Something had broken off in mine because nothing would push the switch. I wedged it down with a foam nose pad for glasses (came in the kit i bought for the screwdriver). Now flash registers all the time so I have to manually change the setting if I don not want flash but it is working now.
The Error 05 means the build in flash cannot be raised.
In the moment it should pop up, something was blocking the free movement. Could be caused by the way you were holding the camera. Could be happening, while you were pressing the flash button, or when you are in the basic zone shooting mode, such as portrait, which needs the use of the flash.
Switch the camera off an then on again. Move an eventually cause of the blocking and press the shutter realise button again.
this can be happening due to some bad battery contacts in the camera. take some cotton buds and clean the lower and upper contacts of the camera.
this will help you. else revert back to us.
