It won't in several shooting modes, like manual. Try auto and make sure flash mode is not set to off (circle with line over lightening bolt) but to auto.

Nikon D5100 wont flash

Here is a list of things to check:
1. Go into the camera's menus and make sure that the flash is enabled.
2. Check in the menus that the flash is not set in the command mode.
3. You didn't say if your camera was in the auto mode, aperture or shutter priority, etc. If the camera is in shutter priority or manual mode, make sure that the shutter speed is below 1/250th of a second.
4. Make sure that the ISO speed isn't set so high that the camera thinks that flash is not needed.

Why won't the flash hood stay closed?

Look at your camera's body with the lens pointing toward you. In the upper right quadrant find the Flash Mode button and push it until the flash is turned off (look for symbol on the camera's display panel). The instructions are on pages 50 and 51 of the D5100 manual. If you do not have a manual, you can download it from the Nikon USA website free by following this link:

Flash pops but doesnt fire

Still this is strange. Most of the time when I use the auto setting, I turn the main dial not on the green camera, but on the one between SCENE and the green logo. That prevent the flash to pop up. But still if you want to use the flash it should be possible.
Be aware that some settings the flash can't be used, f.i. when the shutter speed is to high. I would suggest to put al user settings back to standard and try to use the flash again. If it stalls again, try to read the display, if it gives anything of a warning or message.

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?

Nikon D5100 Built in flash won't pop up

Not even when you press the button on the left side of the class? the one with the flash symbol.
Switch on the camera and then press the button.
Look in the manual how you can setup the flash in all other than the automatic mode.

If your lens has a Nikon mount then yes, you can use it on the D5100. You'll have to switch to the Manual exposure mode and you won't get any exposure help from the camera's light meter.
