Yes, the built-in auto flash automatically pops up in dimly lit or back lit situations.

Flash does not fire


Does flash pop up? Does the little electronic flash symbol appear in the LCD when it charges? Really not enough info in your post.

A few thoughts:

If the flash will not pop up check the external flash detection pin in the hot shoe (located on one side under the spring, which can be popped off with a knife blade or similar). If this is stuck down the flash will not pop up because the camera thinks there is an external flash in the hot shoe.

If the flash pops up and you get an 05 error or it makes a clicking noise and you get an 05 error this usually means sticky liquid spillage around the flash. It needs to be disassembled and cleaned and the pivots lubed. Squirting WD40 on the flash WILL NOT SOLVE THIS PROBLEM. NEVER SQUIRT WD40 IN ANY CAMERA!!!!!

It the flash pops up, and the little electronic flash symbol comes on, but goes out when you push the release button it usually means the flash board is bad.

If the camera has been impacted, then either the flash tube is cracked/broken or one of the wires that goes to it or the trigger coil may be broken inside

Nikon D5100 camera flash does not pop-up. Any suggestions?


You can't pop up the flash in the Auto mode. In this mode the camera decides whether to use the flash or not.

Try switching to one of the PSAM modes. Does the flash then pop up when you push the flash button?

I bought my new canon eos 60D..i put on external flsah to use..then after i take off the external flash, my camera's built in flash cannot pop up to take flash even i had press the flash button. How?


Hi, What external flash did you use on your Canon 60D? The internal flash will not automatically pop up if in the "Creative Zone" it will pop up with the button in the creative zones (M, AV, TV and P) it will not pop up with the button if you are in the the full auto mode (that's the little green box mode) but, should pop up automatically if required. The flash should pop up automatically in the basic zone for Portrait, close up and night photography, the button won't activate (pop up) the flash. Also the internal flash will not pop up if there is an accessory in the hot shoe. Again what external flash was it you used and did it flash?

Canon EOS 350D flashes error 05 and flash won't pop up


I had the same problem but found that manually popping the flash up about 10 or 12 times restored the auto pop-up function.

Hope that this helps

Auto flash wont work


did it pop up automatically or did you pop it manually? if it popped up by itself then the flash unfortunately is probably dead, since on automatic, it won't pop unless it's going to fire. If you popped it manually then - the camera doesn't think that the flash is necessary for the conditions that you're shooting in.

Why won't the flash on my e500 pop up when the correct button is pressed or when I try to take a picture that requires a flash?


When you take pictures in AUTO, Portrait, Macro or Night scene mode, the built-in flash will automatically pop up in low-light or backlit conditions. If you want to control the flash pop-up, set this function to OFF.
1 Menu [AUTO POP UP]
2 Use control dial to select [ON] or [OFF].
3 Press the Ok
button.

If you are in any other mode the flash will not auto pop up.

Pop-Up flash - Rebel xti


You will need to send the camera for servicing. There's a lever mechanism inside the flash unit which is responsible for popping up the flash. Since it is a mechanical device, it is sometimes prone to failure. I suggest not to put manual pressure to force the flash to come out, as it may cause permanent damage. Instead, send the camera for service.

Pop-up flash


make sure after popping up the flash, you didn't change the mode into "no flash" mode....an easy way to check is put the flash back down, then proceed to take another photo. If the flash pops up again but did not flash, you have a faulty camera (assuming battery level is at least until the 1/3 mark).

A sliding pop-up system


A new flash mechanism that slides forward as it pops up assures an adequate angle of illumination while contributing to the camera's low-profile body design. The flash offers broad, even coverage with minimal illumination drop-off at the periphery. In addition, the new design allows a dedicated external flash to be used in tandem with the built-in flash.
