Canon EOS Rebel XT Error 05 or BUSY


The Error 05 means the build in flash cannot be raised.
In the moment it should pop up, something was blocking the free movement. Could be caused by the way you were holding the camera. Could be happening, while you were pressing the flash button, or when you are in the basic zone shooting mode, such as portrait, which needs the use of the flash.
Switch the camera off an then on again. Move an eventually cause of the blocking and press the shutter realise button again.

When taking a picture is clicks a couple of times does not take a picture and says error 05


Check if something is blocking the in-built flash to pop up or if it is stuck. If the flash is stuck press the flash pop-up button and try pulling it up simultaneously.

I am getting this message on my EOS 450d, (camera's built in flash pop up was obstructed turn the power switch to off and on again). I have done this several times the flash wont pop up - can you please...


Sometimes the pop-up flash on the EOS range of cameras can get stuck. The EOS family have a very tiny micro switch under one blade of the flash hot-shoe.

Get a toothpick and manually pop the switch. It should clear your error, too.

Good Luck.

Cannon error 05


Error 05 means that something mechanically prevents built in flash to pop up. Ensure that nothing is blocking flash. Switch in P mode and press flash button to pop it up. If it does not pop up - try _gently_ to help it to pop up. If you succed in popping up the flash - check it for any dirt with can prevent flash from popping up.

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

The built-in flash on my Canon EOS 450D camera won't pop-up


Had the same issue and just tried this....and it worls [PS dont use the littel plastic hotshoe cover as this keeps the microswitch depressed]

Occasionally I get 'ERROR 5' appear on the display on my EOS 450D - it is suggested that the pop-up flash is being impeded, but I know that it isn't. What is happening?


This is a common canon mechanical error.

Most of there SLRS do this the release inside the pop up flash hangs either due to weak spring or release catch itself. If it hangs for even a split second you get error code.

Try This.
  1. Clean Flash Release & Apply wd-40 with a q-tip to moving parts. DO NOT SPRAY INTO CAMERA. Use oil lightly.
  2. Or Assist flash when it tries to p up by lifting on flash gently. Maybe one day canon will fix this problem.
PS this happens to even Brand new Canons.
