Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
I just got a new canon rebel XTi 400D. In the full auto mode my flash does not pop up automatically. I do not know if I have pressed something by mistake while handling it in the beginning did the problem or not. Can anyone tell me how to switch the auto flash on in the auto mode?
Excellent..good its worked for me

Put the camera in "P" and press the flash button above the lens release. If the flash pops, than you probably just have too much light to need it when you are in auto. The flash button is not active in auto so if the xti doesn't want the flash in auto, u can't make it fire. If the flash button does not make the flash pop in "P", search this site for another post about flash not working and u will find that this could be the flash deactivation button in the hot shoe sticking. Not likely though with a new camera unless u have had a speedlite mounted alot.--
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.

In the auto mode every manual buttons are being override so it works automatically..its not compulsory that the flash will work every time... as the camera determines when to use it or not...
i suggest you to visit the service center
