Question about Nikon D3100 Digital Camera
It sounds like the flash up switch is stuck closed so that even though the flash is down the camera thinks it is up.
Slide a business card under the left side (the rewind side if you are old enough to remember film cameras) of the flash when it is down to free the latch and remove the two screws on the bottom of the flash so you can pop off the cover. You can then see the switch on the release side of the flash at the pivot. The flash up switch contact that looks like a crooked finger should be above the post. Gently reposition it and check the action of the switch by manually freeing the latch.
Be very careful. There may be over 300 volts across the two wires that are soldered to the flash tube. If you touch them you will get a nasty shock.
