Question about Cameras
This sounds like the flash obstruction error - a fairly common issue with the Rebel XT. For some reason, the built in flash tends to get sticky if it's not used often. From what i've read, the best work around for this is to "exercise" the flash.
Basically what you do is when you press the flash button, either help it with your finger or thumbnail, close it again, re press the button, and keep doing it a few times. You'll find the flash gets less sticky.
You might also want to see if it gets caught on the Canaon nameplate as it tries to pop up. All it takes a smidge of friction to throw this error
