Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
My Canon XTI flash pops up and no flash. There is a white light that flashes on the front of the camera that I have never seen before. I have changed the battery, thinking that would help.....but no luck. I did tap the flash and it flashed, but did not work with the camera. Is there a bulb that could be lose or something? Please advise,
I personally would recommend getting expert help - flashes produce a high voltage flash (several hundred volts to several thousand), and can be dangerous - even this camera's flash gun. It sounds like it is shorting when you tap it, so likely a loose connection. You can't do it yourself, so get proper advice. You can try your local camera dealer, or better, send it back to Canon Service. If out of guarantee, get a quote for looking at it. They will likely have come accross this before, so don't worry - it is likely fixable .
Hope this helps
