Switch the photo mode selector knob on top around to P. Then press the little black button on the body behind the AF/MF button on the lens. Flash will pop up and work then (don't forget to switch the camera on before doing this stuff). All of the above takes the camera out of auto mode (the square green box on the selector), so you can tell the flash you want it. It will work in the other manual modes as well of course. Good Luck
Steve

My nikon D60 and the pop up flash dosent work


the flash pivot on the release side of the flash has a small cylinder that operates the flash up switch. If that cylinder is broken off or the pivot is pushed in so the switch doesn't close, then what you describe happens

pop up the flash and remove the two screws underneath, and you can pry off the cover - gently - to check the switch

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?

Flash will not pop up. Can you help?


If it releases but doesn't properly pop up then this may be the answer.

Mine did the same thing. The problem in mine after extensive disassembly was the plastic had broken inside the flash where the pop up spring attaches.

This was a pretty extensive repair with full disassembly in my case, not for most people.

A workaround is to take a small rubber band, loop it over the top of the camera from the eyepiece for the viewfinder to the lobe in front of the flash. When you need flash, release the flasy and unhook the elastic fromt he front lobe and let it go under the raised flash unit and it will keep it up. If you case lets you, you can leave it that way. Not pretty but functional.

Auto flash wont work


did it pop up automatically or did you pop it manually? if it popped up by itself then the flash unfortunately is probably dead, since on automatic, it won't pop unless it's going to fire. If you popped it manually then - the camera doesn't think that the flash is necessary for the conditions that you're shooting in.

I can't seem to turn the flash on my Nikon D70 on! I've been playing around with it for hours and have read through the manual. I've followed the steps clearly, but nothing is working. The previous...


If nothing else it should pop up when you put the camera in A or M or S and then press the flash button on the side. It might or might not fire, depending on the light available, but it should for certain pop up. When you do this, you should hear a click and the flash should pop up. If you hear the click and it doesn't pop up, then it's jammed or glued or somehow being mechanically prevented from coming up.

In Auto modes, you can select the flash to off with the side button and the back rotary selector. This is where the flash symbol with the slash through it tells you the flash is off. If you push the flash button in Auto modes with the flash selected off, it won't pop up.

There are also some things the D70 can do to control external flash units that may be set abnormally.

The best way to make sure those aren't messing you up is to select "reset to default". That will take the camera back to a base setup that should work.

If none of these things gets it going, take it in to the Nikon dealer in town.

I made the mistake of putting ahotshoe protector from my old camera on the new EOS 400D. It stopped the flash from popping up. I took it off and things now work.

Canon S1 flash stuck


Mine does the exact same thing but I just pop it open manually when I need it. The great thing is that unless you have a very dark night shot you can pretty much shoot with out it, but don't be afraid to pop it out manually. It will close again!
