Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
I have a new Canon EOS Rebel xti and last week while taking indoor photos, I deceided to try my external flash, after which time I can't get the built in flash to pop up or flash when I manually pull it up. What do you thing the problem is?
I found the answer and fixed my flash. Look on http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=00ODWf
This will describe how, if you have been using a speedlite alot, than the little tab under the shutter release side of the hot shoe can get bent down thus constantly pressing down (toward the bottom of the camera) the small button which deactivates the pop-up flash even when the speedlite is not attached. Just bend the tab up a little with a jewler's screwdriver, turn the camera off and on and voila!! Fixed!!! Dan describes pushing the tab down, but on the xti, the tab needs to be bent up to release the flash deactivation switch and fix the problem. Thanks to Dan D on photonet for saving me a service call.

Flash must be raised for AF assist.
Go to the setting and select which flash u need to use internal or external.
