SOURCE: Internal flash not working because of non compatible flash installed

Solution:
Look at the external flash socket.
With the camera in "normal position", i.e., poiting away from you, you shoul see a very small (I realy mean very small) piece of plastic under the rigth inside of the flash shoe... it is the "external flash sensor". It probably is stuck. Work with the point of a knife to try and release it.
In more detail, if you look carefully at the external flash shoe, the are two metal pieces that will help create some pressure. So the flash holder (shoe) is made of two parts: a very rigid one and the metal blades that create the pressure. Look under the blade located nearest to the shuter button.
If you can locate the plastic piece (black in my camera, but can be white) try to have unstuck.
Worked with my camera.
regards
Mig

Flash won't come on.


Check the small post under the spring plate in the hot shoe. If it is stuck down the camera will think there is an external flash and will not fire.

if the flash clicks but won't pop up, the usual cause is spillage around the pivot points. Sometimes this causes the pivot screw to rust

T3 built in flash won't pop up. Says I have an external flash attached, but I don't.


There is a small flat leaf spring under the hot shoe rail where an eternal flash slides in. If an external flash is mounted the leaf spring is pressed against a small button telling the camera that there is an external flash mounted. Take a toothpick and rub under the hot shoe rail gently to more the leaf spring or unjam the leaf spring. You may even see the button depressed, poke at it a time or two with a toothpick, even a drop of rubbing alcohol may unstick this button if a sticky beverage sprayed on it.

Canon T3 flash flutters and does not take pictures help!


The 'fluttering' is a pre flash used to help the camera focus in low light. The internal flash isn't a powerful flash and is usually only good enough for subjects up to about 2m away in reasonable light also to light a subject that is back lit. Try putting the camera in manual mode (M) 1/60sec on f5.6 flash popped up review it and make adjustments accordingly i.e. open up or shut down the aperture as the flash usually syncs at 1/60

What external flashes can be used for canon cameras?


Any current or recent Canon flash unit will work fine. Most current or recent third-party flashes will also work, though you may not get all of the features you might with Canon units.
Older flash units designed for film cameras tend to have a higher trigger voltage. Using such units on new digital cameras can damage the camera. Here is one list of flash units and their trigger voltages.

I purchased an external flash for my Nikkon D60 but I have not been able to make it work.How can I get the camarato recognize the flash and work properlly.


You didn't say what model flash you purchased so I can't say if it is compatible with your camera. You can't just buy any external flash and expect it to work with every camera.
