Please read the manual about using manual mode. The external flash mounted on hot shoe fires only when the camera is in manual mode.
Please check and confirm if this solved yr problem.

T3 built in flash won't pop up. Says I have an external flash attached, but I don't.


There is a small flat leaf spring under the hot shoe rail where an eternal flash slides in. If an external flash is mounted the leaf spring is pressed against a small button telling the camera that there is an external flash mounted. Take a toothpick and rub under the hot shoe rail gently to more the leaf spring or unjam the leaf spring. You may even see the button depressed, poke at it a time or two with a toothpick, even a drop of rubbing alcohol may unstick this button if a sticky beverage sprayed on it.

Error 5 with canon eos rebel 6.3 mp


there is a pin in the hot shoe that detects if an external flash is connected. check and make sure it isn't stuck down.

check to make sure the flash comes all the way up. sometimes spillage can cause the flash to not go up all the way or not to come up at all. you would have to disassemble the flash unit and clean the pivots and lubricate them with grease

If the flash comes all the way up but the camera is still 'clicking' - the lock is still moving back and forth to free the flash, then the problem is either in the flash-up switch, located on the flex on the bottom side of the top cover, is not operating properly. you would need to remove the top cover (first removing all the other covers) and repair the switch. if that switch is OK, then there may be a circuit problem. don't forget to discharge the flash capacitor - 300 volts - ouch!!!

if the flash comes up but the flash symbol keeps blinking and the flash never charges, or the symbol comes on for full flash, but when you fire it the flash doesn't fire and the symbol starts blinking again, you are probably looking at a dead flash board

I have a sony a200, i want to fit an external flash for that.


The camera already has a hot shoe that will accommodate a Sony flash unit or a third-party flash unit designed for Sony cameras. You don't need anything else (other than the camera and the flash unit, of course).

Can the camera sp-800UZ take rapid shots pics with flash going off every pic taken


In short, no. As with all flashes, the capacitor takes a while to recharge (via power from the low voltage battery which is amplified to many thousands of volts in the capacitor) between each shot. How long exactly depends upon how far it's discharged each time, so for close-up objects which fill the frame and need little flash, the discharge will be relatively low and you may get a few shots off in a row, and for distant objects using a more powerful flash discharge it may totally discharge with each shot.

The bigger and more powerful the flash unit, the better it will perform in that respect which is why professional external flashguns are big, bulky and cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. A built-in flash such as on your camera is a compromise solution and is not intended for heavy use. More advanced cameras may have their own built in pop up flashes to take close up snapshots, but for anything else have connectors to enable the use of more powerful external units.

When I connect my camera to my macbook, nothing happens. I want to transfer my photos, but I don't have any other sort of internal or external card-reading device. What can I do?


Instead of connecting the camera to the computer, connect a card reader to the computer instead.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader. This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

A card reader can be bought for as little as $5, and a small card reader is lighter and less bulky than a USB cable.

Power switch fell off


Error the saving the image may require a firmware update to the camera. Go to Hp.com for firmware and instructions on the update.

For the power button, I suggest you take apart the camera: Remove the 5 black and 1 silver screws and case is snapped together from the top. Doing so exposes the camera. Turn the black half of the case apart and inspect your button. The power button should snap back in. Just be careful that it may have (or had) a tab that held the power button in place. This tab may have broken off. Once the button is back in, assemble the camera and screw it shut.

PROBLEM: F828 & external flash


I think this is due to the TLL preflash of the 828 internal flash. Each time it actually fires 2 flashes. First one for metering and second one for actual exposure. First "fake" flash probably trigers your external flash which is too early. Slution... hmm i think there are afordable slave adapters out there which detect the TTL preflash, ignore it and fire the external flash on the right timing along with the main flash. cost.. about few tens $ i think. they can detect also infrared light so you can mount IR filter on your internal flash to prevent interfering with the exposure...

Message: cam not detected


look for cam cable loose connection, or the cable itself is bad!( it's the common problem, check the cable end tips!) uninstalling, installing and reinstalling any software and driver is useless too. The pc must recognize first your webcam, if the connection is not good theres no way it can be detected by the pc.
