Re: Built in Flash

I have the same problem on my D50. I found this forum, which sounds like it may fix that problem. I am going to try it out.

60d flash pop up

Mode dial is set to an auto mode or the setting is set for flash photography. Change that and the built-in flash unit won't pop-up every time you press the shutter button.

Rebel T3i built-in flash does not fire

Most Canon DSLRs have a switch in the hot shoe (if you look under the spring plate in the hot shoe one one side there is usually a small white shaft sticking up from underneath the top cover). Sometimes because of spillage etc. this shaft sticks down and the camera thinks that there is an external flash installed so it won't operate the built in flash.
In your case I would be more suspicious of the flash board. Does the flash symbol in the viewfinder light up? When you fire the camera does the symbol go out but the flash doesn't fire? This is a pretty common sign of a bad flash board.
A third possibility would be a broken flash tube. Has the camera been impacted?
Put the camera's mode dial on 'P' and push the flash button on the side of the mount/front cover. Does the flash pop up? Does it fire now? On the P,A,S,M setting the flash fires all the time if it is popped up; if it is one the green rectangle or other setting it only fires if there is not enough light.
Finally reset the menu to factory default in case something is selected that is causing the flash not to fire.

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..

The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

I bought my new canon eos 60D..i put on external flsah to use..then after i take off the external flash, my camera's built in flash cannot pop up to take flash even i had press the flash button. How?

Hi, What external flash did you use on your Canon 60D? The internal flash will not automatically pop up if in the "Creative Zone" it will pop up with the button in the creative zones (M, AV, TV and P) it will not pop up with the button if you are in the the full auto mode (that's the little green box mode) but, should pop up automatically if required. The flash should pop up automatically in the basic zone for Portrait, close up and night photography, the button won't activate (pop up) the flash. Also the internal flash will not pop up if there is an accessory in the hot shoe. Again what external flash was it you used and did it flash?

I have a canon digital rebel xt with a speedlite 200e flash. The flash is not working in full auto mode, although the built in flash is. I have replaced the batteries in the flash and the ready light comes...

In auto mode, the flash works only if it is necessary. You are saying that the flsah doesn't work in auto mode, and I assume that in other modes it's working properly. That means there is nothing wrong with the flash. So don't worry about the flash, it will fire in necessary, in full auto mode.

Why won't the flash on my e500 pop up when the correct button is pressed or when I try to take a picture that requires a flash?

When you take pictures in AUTO, Portrait, Macro or Night scene mode, the built-in flash will automatically pop up in low-light or backlit conditions. If you want to control the flash pop-up, set this function to OFF.
1 Menu [AUTO POP UP]
2 Use control dial to select [ON] or [OFF].
3 Press the Ok

If you are in any other mode the flash will not auto pop up.

Red dye reduction

repeatedly until the desired flash mode
indication appears.
● The flash mode changes ,

displayed, the selection screen disappears.

Nikon D40 - The built in flash will not ppo-up in auto mode. The only time it works is the manual modes. Are there any settings I don't know about. I'm calling it defective and will return it the store.

With the command dial set to "auto", try to take a shot in low light. The flash should pop up automatically. You can't manually pop it up with the flash button in the auto mode. If it won't pop automatically in low light, then it certainly sounds defective.

Flash Problem

Using the flash When shooting with the built-in flash, open the flash manually. The flash does not pop-up automatically. The flash will not fire if it is closed. The flash will work when it is opened up. When the flash is open, the (flash on) icon or (automatic) icon will appear on the LCD monitor (or in the viewfinder). Flash on: The flash fires in every shot. Automatic: The flash fires automatically. Press the (flash) button to switch between the and flash modes while the flash is open. In some shooting modes, the flash mode does not switch even if the flash button is pressed. Please refer to Functions Available in Each Shooting Mode in the Camera User Guide provided with your camera for more information. When you are not using the flash, close it manually. When the flash is closed, the flash will not fire and the icon appears on the LCD monitor (or in the viewfinder).
