    If the battery is not powerful enough the flash won't fire.
    the first step will be to take the battery off and put it back and power back on.
    Next will be to do a reset by going into the menu.
    Hope this will help...Kevin.

Flash pops but doesnt fire


Still this is strange. Most of the time when I use the auto setting, I turn the main dial not on the green camera, but on the one between SCENE and the green logo. That prevent the flash to pop up. But still if you want to use the flash it should be possible.
Be aware that some settings the flash can't be used, f.i. when the shutter speed is to high. I would suggest to put al user settings back to standard and try to use the flash again. If it stalls again, try to read the display, if it gives anything of a warning or message.

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 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

Nikon D50 -flash won't fire


Try pushing the flash forward just a tiny bit. this model of Nikon has a built in problem with the flash popping up too hard. You can also try to "soften" the pop-up action with your finger instead of just letting it snap up into position.

D70 internal flash not firing


Check if something is preventing the flash to pop up 'fully'. Check for some dust or other particles trapped between the flash and the body. Does the screen say 'Subject is too dark'? If so, the flash has not popped up fully.

Nikon d40 flash won't fire


If lightning bolt icon is blinking in viewfinder, flash is not ready. Either flash isnt popped up all the way or flash strobe tube is bad.

Pop-up flash


make sure after popping up the flash, you didn't change the mode into "no flash" mode....an easy way to check is put the flash back down, then proceed to take another photo. If the flash pops up again but did not flash, you have a faulty camera (assuming battery level is at least until the 1/3 mark).

Nikon coolpix 5700


The red dot beside SB means that the flash is not ready. If the flash does not pop-up, I would say something is jamming it -- and not allowing the flash to pop-up. If the flash does pop-up, but the red dot stays on, there is a problem with the flash. The simplest might be a battery that is almost dead. The flash has to "charge" before it will fire. I have to admit, you would notice this rather quickly as the camera would power down within a few shots -- even if the flash didn't fire.

Check the pop-up flash position and get back to me. I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.
Regards,
