Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
The internal flash on my rebel XT will not pop up automatically, nor when I press the flash release button. If I open it manually, it still won't fire. Someone suggested that the 'microswitch' is depressed, but I don't know where it is or how to correct it if that is the problem.
Two tiny black plastic rods, one on each side under the flash. From the front the one on the left is much longer than the one on the right. Check with your finger if they are spring loaded and move freely. If either is stuck down that is you problem. You could try a TINY amount of Iso-Propyl alcohol on a cotton bud to clean them if stuck.
Please post if this helps you so others will know
