When it is in one of the manual modes, it won't. Please put it in automatic and try again.

My mount flash from my Canon EOS 60 D is not popping up when I am taking a picture. The screen is telling me to turn off and on the camera and I do that. When I tried again the same thing happens. I...

This is usually caused by sticky liquid spillage or impact. Try popping up the flash with your finger nail when it tries to rise and then cleaning out with Windex on a Q-tip. Sometimes you get rust on the pivot screw on the release side.

The flash does not pop up when needed. there is loud clicking like it won't release.

This is an internal problem with the unit that opens the flash assembly and will require service.

Canon 550 ex speedlight - flashes okay. Won't sink with 60d (tried different cameras at dealer - same problem) Camera is okay .

Try these steps:
1. Set camera to manual2. Set shutter to 1/60
3. Set aperture to F5.6
4. ASA/ISO 200
5. 550EX on hotshoe
6. Do not set on slave or master
7. Turn on flash

Display must shows, ETTL.
If that doesn't work, you have to use the flash on manual.
Some of this model will not work fully on ATG Canon EOS-1D C, ATG Canon EOS-1D X IR, Canon EOS-1D X/60D/T4i because this flash is over 20 years old.

Unless you would want it to be modified by me.
But that can be costly when you can get the 580EX II for less than $425.00 USD.

My rebel t1i eos 500 built in flash won't pop up

Hi, I have to Canon Rebel t1i and I had the same problem (built in flash not working). I tried a number of remedies I found on forums etc but none worked. I then tried this. In the external flash housing is a metal sprung plate which surrounds the five circular pins (one big, four small at the rear). If you get a small straight headed screwdriver and lift the front of this plate and at the same time pull it back towards you it will come out altogether.
I then removed the four small screws being careful not to drop them and took off the mount for the external flash and then tried the flash it opened straight away. I then cleaned all the area of the mount and the two plates and replaced them all ensuring I fitted them exactly as before. I then checked the camera again and presto working fine. I hope this helps everyone with the problem.

Pop up flash won't flash it makes a clattering sound as if it wants to pop the flash but its stuck. then it registers error 05.

i was having the same problem. tried to use the built in flash, it makes clattering sound about 3 times but it won't pop out. Then the error 05 occurred. This is what u should do:
1. open the flash manually by your hand ( carefully ).
2. Then u can see 2 tiny black screw ( u have to unscrew it ).
3. Then open the upside cover of the built in flash.
4. See a screw on the left side? Loosen it a little. Thats it. :)
How simple is that? It work for me. Sorry for my bad english. Haha

Hey, Im using canon EOS 60 D> I have a problem

This camera is pretty new to have this problem unless you are using it with oily hands or it's in a dirty environment.

Anyway what happens is that Canon has two extremely tiny holes under the hot shoe where sensors are placed to sense the presents of an accessory in the hot shoe. What has been happening is that the alignment of these little holes is so critical that any shift in the body to hot shoe will cause the malfunction you are experiencing. This shift can be caused my simple expansion and or contraction of the two materials the hot shoe metal and the carbon fiber of the camera body.

Also normally found on a camera that's a little older then your Canon 60D is a build up of oily dirt under the hot show which then plugs these little holes rendering the sensor inoperable.
What to do?
The camera should be returned to Canon for service, yours could still be under warranty.
Another is to attempt to realign the hot shoe (good luck with this one) by gently tapping the metal part of the hot shoe with a plastic object. I used the handle of a wooden kitchen knife.

When mine stuck I was on a shoot for a real estate interior and was using the internal flash to trigger other slave flashes, the kitchen knife was there and the only thing I could find. It was more a desperation thing and I'd suggest finding something else.

Cheers hope this works out for your

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?

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
