    Definitely a problem with the mechanism. I've pushed every button on there 20xs, including the flash activator.



    Thanks for your feedback. I appreciate it.

With the Canon XSi, the flash should automatically pop up in FULL AUTO mode when it thinks it needs to. In modes like Manual Mode, you need to pop it up yourself. There is a button on the front next to the lens that looks like a lightning bolt, that's the flash activator. Try popping your camera into Manual Mode and press that button. If it doesn't work then there might be a problem with the mechanism and needs repairs.

60d flash pop up


Mode dial is set to an auto mode or the setting is set for flash photography. Change that and the built-in flash unit won't pop-up every time you press the shutter button.

Reble xt flash will not pop up why?


It depends on what setting your main top dial is set on? The flash will not pop up if you have your main dial set on P, Tv, Av, M, A-DEP . If you are using one of these setting you have to manually turn on the flash by pressing the small button on the side of the lens with a Flash icon next to it.
The only time the flash will automatically pop out is if you are using AUTO, Portrait, Close Up...etc. these icons would be underneath the Auto setting which are called Scene Mode, hope this helps ?

How do I disable the pop-up flash on Nikon D5000? Thanks


As long as jog dial is set to M or manual, the flash will not pop up automatically. Be reminded though because you have to set everything manually. If you want the auto settings without the flash, set the jog dial to the icon that looks like a lightning with stop/ no sign

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90. When I try to change the flash settings, a notification pops up on the screen saying, "Flash settings cannot be changed." I tried setting it in each mode (including Auto)...


Go to Menu/ Home and initialize camera to reset it for factory default settings to fix flash light settings bug.
If problem still not solved, let me know do you see any error code flashing in top right corner of lcd?

The flash will not stay down.


is it set in auto mode? the flash will automatically pop up when it thinks it required in auto mode. there is an 'auto no flash' mode that you can change it to. on the dial it looks like a lightening bold with a cross through it.

Pop up flash not working


You probably need to change the setting wheel on the top of your camera to either auto or Program (P) to do what you are wanting.

The flash don't pop up


With no information about what kind of camera you are using, this is just a guess. I would say that you are on the "no flash" setting. If it is a point and shoot, look for a picture of a flash symbol on your dials and press it, take a pic and continue to press and test until it pops up. If this is a D-SLR, look in your menu settings for flash and change setting to auto.

That's at least a strating point for you.

Flash forced off


THESE CAMERAS DO NOT HAVE A AUTO POP UP SOLENOID TO OPEN FLASH. THIS HAS TO BE DONE MANUALLY WITH THE BUTTON TO THE LEFT OF THE FLASH.

Nikon D40 - The built in flash will not ppo-up in auto mode. The only time it works is the manual modes. Are there any settings I don't know about. I'm calling it defective and will return it the store.


With the command dial set to "auto", try to take a shot in low light. The flash should pop up automatically. You can't manually pop it up with the flash button in the auto mode. If it won't pop automatically in low light, then it certainly sounds defective.
