SOURCE: The flash on my Canon EOS 400D won't work

Can you pull it up manually, Be careful when doing this but try opening it manually, it is possible that the catch for the flash is just stuck temporarily.

SOURCE: Err 05

In my case, I borrowed a camera and when I got it back, err 05 appears. I've located a bit of old orange juice which sticked one of the sensors - you can see the sensors when flash is popped out.

SOURCE: Error 05

Usually grit or something sticky causes the flash movement to seize. Window cleaning fluid on a cotton tip works best.Clean remaining residue with methylated spirits on another cotton tip. Water based cleaning should be avoided as it may corrode components.

My canon 550 d camera lens dose not zoom autormatically


a 550D is a detachable lens camera and will not auto-zoom (it has a rubber ring that you turn to accomplish this with most lenses). are you sure you have an EOS 550D, or did you mean auto-focus?

I recently purchased a Canon EOS Rebel T3i SLR camera (July 2011) and already I am encountering a problem called "Err 05 the built-in flash could not be raised." Does anyone know how to resolve...


Hey Leo,

Unfortunately the problem you've mentioned is quiet common with your particular model.

Here's what Canon recommends, on its website.

-Turn the power switch to < ON > to turn on the power again.

And, if that doesn't work. Buddy, you'll have to drop by a service center. Hurry up, or you'll run out on the warranty period.

Toodles,

My new canon rebel T2i/EOS 550D Flash is not opening when i press shoot, it tries and tries and tries and show error 5.


A 5 error is the camera thinks the flash is not raising. Look near the hinge for a small button and see if it is up or down. This lets the camera know is the flash is up or down and if the button is stuck down you will hear the motor fire a few times and it will then error.
Unfortunately, this is one of the problems that starts to appear on cameras with pop-up flashes. You can hit the button and pull it up at the same time. Only other option is to send it to Canon to get it repaired.
or, Get an Speedlite like the 430EXII or 580EXII. The flash unit may make your camera bigger, but the results will be much better once you learn flash techniques.

Error 05 the built-in flash could not be raised


I had this issue.
  • Gently pried the flash up with a pocket knife while I pressed the flash button.
  • Cleaned all around the flash and moving parts with a q-tip.
  • Moved the release and tiny button a few times to make sure nothing was stuck.
  • Turn off then on and test.
  • Seems to be working fine. May have just been some goo in the release or causing the flash to stick to the body.

Whats the difference between Canon EOAS 550D /Rebel / non rebel? Which is better camera?


Identical Canon models are sometimes marketed under different names in different parts of the world. Rebel cameras are known in America and EOS cameras are known in Europe. For example the EOS 550D is called Rebel T2i in America. They are in fact the same camera they just don't have the same name.

Cannon error 05


Error 05 means that something mechanically prevents built in flash to pop up. Ensure that nothing is blocking flash. Switch in P mode and press flash button to pop it up. If it does not pop up - try _gently_ to help it to pop up. If you succed in popping up the flash - check it for any dirt with can prevent flash from popping up.
