Hi, I'm getting error message 005 - the auto flash won't flip up. It seems like it wants to (moves slightly) but just won't pop up. Screen says to turn off and then on again...no luck.

I had same problem and found the hinge/bearing for the flash corroded, probably due to sea spray. Remove side arms on flash which limit the amount of travel BUT ENSURE YOU NOTE WHICH GOES ON WHICH SIDE AND WHICH WAY UP! (Not doing that cost me an afternoon of trial and error!) Remove the three screws (two short one long) which hold the cover on the flash and remove the cover (toward the front). Now you can ease out the bearing but not remove it totally because the flash wires go through it. (right hand side viewed from the front). Clean it (Iso-Propyl alcohol and cotton bud) then reassemble and check flash is VERY free to move. Note side arm screws have a shoulder on which the arms can swivel ensure they are correctly located or the flash will seize up when you tighten the screws. Good luck, do post if this works for you so others will know.

Hello, I have a Canon 350D, Digital Rebel XT. For some reason my flash will not pop up, and when I manually push it up and try to take a picture, it won't flash. Does anyone know how to fix this type...


Okay there is a fix for this but it requires slightly removing the hot shoe. The camera thinks there is an accessory in the hot shoe therefor will not pop up. The fix for a qualified repair person is simple and it's fairly inexpensive however, that said if you don't know what you are doing then you could burn out the flash circuitry. Yes an external flash will work and give you much better performance then the internal flash, when getting a flash make sure it's an EX type to properly sync with the new TTL and I-TTL flash.

The flash getting stuch is a common problem with the Canon Rebel ( or Kiss) series. Set the camera in Auto mode in a dim place. Hold the flash unit gently from both sides and try to help it open while pressing the photo button. Do not use force if this does not work the first time - try it again.

Once open, clean the sides of the flash unit in case some dust is causing this problem.

Canon eos flash beeps 3 times and won't pop up. error 5 comes up on lcd screen. tried turning off, removing card and battery still have problem.


Typically this happens when the pop up flash is jammed. Go into P mode and press the manual release on the left side to pop up the flash. Wiggle and giggle it. It seems to happen after being packed with something resting on top of the flash unit. I thnk it simply gets slightly out of alignment.

Good Luck.

When you moved, did you secure the print head and remove the ink cartrdiges? A Changer Error message is bad. Check the changer for any broken or bent parts.

Flash Error


The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the flash up and pointed at you ( like you are going to take a picture of yourself) the pin is located on the right side close to the where the flash attaches to the camera. Yo should see a little pin sticking up. make sure that area is free of dust and /or debris. if it is not up then that is the problem. try to free it with out braking it or get it professionally repaired.

Canon 20 d 005 error with flash


This can be one of 2 things... either you are using built-in flash and its not popped up all the way, or you used flash on hotshoe and camera still thinks flash is on hotshoe. Known problem with microswitches on hotshoe sticking.

Built-in flash auto pop-up problem


Does the 'pop up' pop up? If it does and still says obstructed- closes it and pop it again If it still persists Canon customer support will advise the next move. If a repair price seems high you could perhaps get a separate flash if the camera accepts them.
