SOURCE: Fuji s5700 my flash is not popping up on auto

Don't blame the Fuji Designers for this fault - it was the Fuji Bean Counters that are at fault - the flash design is for TWO springs, the plastic casting has the holes for a second spring on the other side - which wasn't fitted so 100% overloaded the single spring mount.
Anyway if you are brave and handy you CAN fix this.
First remove the back of the camera - 3 screws in battery bay, 1 in the side above the memory card door, The two rear most on the bottom, two in the USB/video door, and the rear most on the left hand carry strap bracket.
Carefully prise the back rearward about 5 to 8 mm.
Now take a look at the two screw holes under the flash (when popped - or flopped out now that is broken) now go and bend a screwdriver of the type you used for the previous screws - you will need a 90 degree bend very close to the tip to fit in this gap and be able to turn the screws a few degrees at at time.
A little at a time lock the screwdriver into the screws and undo until the flash cover comes off.
You can then slide the shaft out of the flash to release the spring which will have the end that should fit into the broken bracket now sitting proud..
Make a suitable bracket like the one in the photo attached to slide over the broken plastic bracket.
make sure it fits really well the epoxy into position.
Getting the spring back in is a fiddly job - I found the best way was to fit the end of the spring into the new bracket, slide the shaft just into the spring - the lever the other end of the spring down into the back of the flash body and then slide the shaft all the way into place.
I did have to file down the little plastic "blade" inside the lid which presumably is designed to assist the the (now broken) bracket from breaking....
reverse the dis-assembly and now you should have a working flash bb61266_2.jpgbb61266_1.jpg

My Fuji Finepix S5800 tells me my brand new batteries are flat.


It sounds like you have bad batteries. I have had rechargeables that have suddenly done the same thing. I have learned that buying really cheap ones doesn't work out. If you buy a good branded set, I think you will find that they are much better. :)
