Nikon Pop-Up Flash stuck

The autoflash pop-up on my Nikon N65 is not releasing the flash unless the camera is on its side.

I am guessing the hinge may need lubrication. Is there a safe way to do this and a recommended lubrication

I would not lubricate anything on a camera if you are not a camera repair man. The last thing you want is liquids working there way into places they don't belong.

It sounds to me like you may have a worn part. If someone advises you do do any disassemble to make the repair, don't. Take it to a camera repair man. I know of what I speak! In the 60's, a screw fell out one of my lenses for my Nikon F Photomic. To replace the screw, I had to first remove another part. By the time I finished, the whole lens was in pieces on the table. It cost over $150 to fix (1965 dollars). The repair man told me that if I had left things alone and brought the assembled lens and screw in, it would have cost $10 for the repair.

Nikon D5100 camera flash does not pop-up. Any suggestions?


You can't pop up the flash in the Auto mode. In this mode the camera decides whether to use the flash or not.

Try switching to one of the PSAM modes. Does the flash then pop up when you push the flash button?

D300 pop up flash button broken


Do you mean that the flash won't pop up? The usual cause is either impact to the flash unit or sticky liquid spillage on the flash causing it to stick down. Unfortunately Nikon stopped selling parts on July 13th so unless you can find parts on Ebay you will need to send the camera to Nikon to repair an impact problem. If the flash button is stuck it may be broken.

Flash stuck


It sounds like the flash up switch is stuck closed so that even though the flash is down the camera thinks it is up.
Slide a business card under the left side (the rewind side if you are old enough to remember film cameras) of the flash when it is down to free the latch and remove the two screws on the bottom of the flash so you can pop off the cover. You can then see the switch on the release side of the flash at the pivot. The flash up switch contact that looks like a crooked finger should be above the post. Gently reposition it and check the action of the switch by manually freeing the latch.
Be very careful. There may be over 300 volts across the two wires that are soldered to the flash tube. If you touch them you will get a nasty shock.

My nikon D60 and the pop up flash dosent work


the flash pivot on the release side of the flash has a small cylinder that operates the flash up switch. If that cylinder is broken off or the pivot is pushed in so the switch doesn't close, then what you describe happens

pop up the flash and remove the two screws underneath, and you can pry off the cover - gently - to check the switch

How can i turn the flash off of my nikon n65 camera?


In the PSAM modes the flash won't pop up on its own. In the AUTO and vari-program modes, you can set the flash mode by turning the command dial while pressing the flash sync mode button (marked with a lightning bolt symbol). Select Flash Cancel (lightning bolt in a circle with a slash through it).

The batteries are dead on my N65, but when I pushed the button that pops the flash up, nothing happened. Wondering if that is because of the batteries or if the flash is stuck/broke?


Battery is needed to unlock the catch then the internal flash will pop up. These cameras are programed to automatically pop up in certain modes so there is a little electric switch used not battery no switch. Don't leave the dead battery in the camera or you'll end up with more problems then just replacing the batteries.

Flash won't pop up


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Auto flash wont work


did it pop up automatically or did you pop it manually? if it popped up by itself then the flash unfortunately is probably dead, since on automatic, it won't pop unless it's going to fire. If you popped it manually then - the camera doesn't think that the flash is necessary for the conditions that you're shooting in.

My Nikon N65 flash leaves a dark spot on all my photos


tlguthrie,
I love that camera. There are several possiblities, If you are using the pop up built-in flash with a telephoto lens or a lens hood you'll get a shadow in your photos ususally at the bottom of landscape oriented shots. If you are using a flash unit attached it may have something interfering with the strobe possibly or it is turned. We have the same camera and have had the shadow issue in the past. The pop up just won't work if something is wrong with the "bulb" the only other thing is that is isn't going all the way up, check that also.

You might not have your lens set to the minimum aperture setting (the largest number) if it is a non-G lens.
