I have the Canon Rebel t1i (500d) and I had the same problem (built in flash not working). I tried a number of remedies I found on forums etc but none worked. I then tried this with the camera pointing away from me as if taking a picture. In the external flash housing is a metal sprung plate which surrounds the five circular pins (one big, four small at the rear). If you get a small straight headed screwdriver and lift the front of this plate and at the same time pull it back towards you it will come out altogether. (In picture 2 I show this plate removed and sitting in front of the mount only so you can see it removed, it was brought out backwards so towards me from the camera).
I then removed the four small screws being careful not to drop them and took off the mount for the external flash and then tried the flash it opened straight away. I then cleaned all the area of the mount and the two plates and replaced them all ensuring I fitted them exactly as before. I then checked the camera again and presto working fine. I hope this helps everyone with the problem.
I hope this remedy works it did for me.

Canon 60d built in flash will not pop up.


The external flash mount (hot shoe) has a small sliver of metal which when the external flash gun is slid on pushes it down to tell the body to not use the pop-up flash and some times the sliver doesn't return fully up to contact the underside of the hotshoe

The flash does not pop up when needed. there is loud clicking like it won't release.


This is an internal problem with the unit that opens the flash assembly and will require service.

The compressor is making noises and it raises up slow. After it has raised compressor shuts off until the car is unlevel again. What can i do to stop the noise?


It sounds like the compressor is getting to the point of being worn out. that is why it is making noise and raising slowly.
