We ended up sending the camera in to Canon. $200 unless they find something more wrong. Luckily we have my Nikon D80 still. I will say that Canon replied via e-mail fairly quickly and one paid, said 7-10 business days for the repair.

You will need to send the camera for servicing. There's a lever mechanism inside the flash unit which is responsible for popping up the flash. Since it is a mechanical device, it is sometimes prone to failure. I suggest not to put manual pressure to force the flash to come out, as it may cause permanent damage. Instead, send the camera for service.

I had the sticking and two-clicks problem also. I manually pulled the flash up, then took a Q-tip dipped in standard rubbing alcohol and ran it over all the sliding mechanism parts of the flash. Then I rubbed the dry end of the Q-tip over it all agan and it now works fine.

SOURCE: Hi - I have a Rebel
An ERR 05 message indicates that the camera's flash pop up mechanism has encountered a problem due to either an obstruction (such as your hand or something blocking it), a jam (impact damage), or an electrical failure.
Try the following steps, in order, to try and resolve the issue. If nothing works, the camera will have to be sent in for service (call Canon Tech Support @ 1-800-828-4040):
1. Turn the camera off. Ensure that nothing is blocking the pop
up flash. Turn your mode dial to one of the Creative Zone
modes (P, AV, TV. or M). Now turn your camera back on
and attempt to take a flash shot. You will need to manually
press the flash button to do so.
2. Turn your camera on and perform a hard reset by pressing the
MENU button, tabbing over to the Set Up 2 menu tab and
selecting the option "Clear Camera Settings / Clear All
Camera Settings" options, and then removing the camera
batteries, date/time battery, and memory card for a period
of approximately 2 minutes. Then reinstall all items, turn
your camera on, reset the date and time and perform step
number 1 above.
Hope this helps.

Was your last picture no 9999?
if so reset the counter in the file numbering menu.
try a different card
use a torch to look down into the memory card slot to make sure there are no bent pins, beyond that its back to a canon service center I am sorry to say
Best of luck
