This could be a flash circuitry problem, DONT open your camera because the flash capacitors maybe is still charged and have some hundreds of volts stored inside - enough to cause some burns - and you could have a chocking experience!

The flash repair must be performed by a qualified technician, take your camera to a repair shop, this generally costs some bucks, but the camera work like a charm after flash replacement.

Good luck

Internal flash not working on olympus e500


The Xenon flash tube in modern strobes rarely 'burns out'. I would guess that a switch that is activated when the flash pops up is not working properly. More info can be found here: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/olympus-dslr/159660-e-500-built-flash-not-working.html

Canon d60 - Built-in flash will not pop up


There may be something obstructing it from popping open. Inspect the flash area carefully. You could remove the battery and put it back in to see if it corrects the problem. Also, check the flash settings in the menu to make sure that the flash is set to operate. If all of those fail then take the camera in for warranty repair. If the warranty has expired and nothing else works I would suggest getting an external flash for you camera. You will be amazed how much better your photos come out using an external flash. If you go that route then I would suggest going to a camera shop or department to make sure the flash will work for you before purchasing. If you just want a small flash a little better than the built-in, get the SB400. It's only around $125. The SB600 is much better, but will cost almost twice as much (but I think it's worth it).

They work beautifully in auto, but the SB600 will reach much farther and give you less red eye. Good Luck you have a great camera!

Flash is not working


The flash icon appears in the upper left corner of display or it appears as circled flash icon? If flash is open and appears a circled icon, then there’s a malfunction contact that don’t communicate to the camera that the flash is open. Your camera needs service! Be sure the upper part of the flash is unfolded, pointing directly in front of the camera (not downward), because the sensor is just in this second folder. If the icon is not circled, press the right arrow until only the lightning symbol appears (forced flash). Try a shot! If the flash doesn’t pops, then your camera needs servicing (burned or broken lamp or other malfunctions).

Built-in flash auto pop-up problem


Does the 'pop up' pop up? If it does and still says obstructed- closes it and pop it again If it still persists Canon customer support will advise the next move. If a repair price seems high you could perhaps get a separate flash if the camera accepts them.

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.
