Hi Mo,

If you need our help, please be clear. I for one have no ideal what you're talking about.

Try these steps;

Name of flash?
Model of flash?
What camera will this be attached onto, by Hot Shoe or PC?
Trouble or problem that you're having when using this flash.
Using reg. batteries or rechargeable and so on.

What is "popped something in my flash...?" Only studio bulb popped if they are rated 1000ws and higher on max discharged, not four AA batteries flash. You can hear when the studio flash goes off within 5 feet.


Maybe we can help you to fix your flash by yourself. You'll be our hands.

Shattered rear end components 1989 Chevrolet s10

I would suggest a used assembly from a salvage yard. The damage is probably one of the pinion gears. The other gear is still working for now.
It can be a big hassle shimming up gears to make them align correctly if you try to rebuild the ring and pinion assembly. The entire axle housing with springs and brakes would probably cost you less than $100.

The flash on my Panasonic DMC-FZ100 doesn't work, I've tried 'forced flash' and thats not working either?

Hello Ray, This is not something a user wants to attempt !!! The camera really needs to be repaired by a tech. You will do more harm than good by trying to fix it yourself and will cost even more if you damage something.

Best Regards, Russell

My camera rebel xti flash will not work all of a sudden, what could be the problem and how may I fix it?

Does the flash pop up when you try to take a picture in low light in the Green Box Mode? If the flash does not pop up the problem may just be that something sticky is keeping it down. If it pops up but does not fire, the problem is usually either a bad flash tube or the wiring to the flash has broken where the flash head pivots up and down.
When the flash is fully charged the capacitor retains a voltage of over 300 volts even when the camera is turned off and the battery is removed. I've seen several cameras where the owner tried to repair the flash and ended up burning out the entire Main PC Board.

Error "Err05" keeps initiating preventing flash operating

There are two versions of this problem: 1. The flash does not pop-up. 2. The flash does pop-up.

Here’s the fix to the err05 msg when the flash does pop-up. This will work on the XTi and perhaps on similar Canon cameras:

The pop-up flash has two legs. Look at the pivot point of the right leg (”right” when looking into the lens). Just in front of the pivot is a very small spring-load pin on the “roof” of the camera body.
This pin is the sensor that tells the camera the state of the flash. The pin is pushed down when the pop-up flash is closed and is suppose to quickly spring up when the flash is opened. Problem is, the pin sometimes gets dirty and drags. When it is slow to spring up … you get the err05 message.

Fix: Take a small jeweler’s screwdriver and dip the tip in isopropyl alcohol. (Don’t use any other solvent unless it’s designed for cleaning electronic parts!) Then touch the screwdriver tip to the pin. Do this several times until the pin area is nicely wet. Then push the pin up and down until it is able to spring up quickly.
