EOS 350D Error Code 5

Err 05 is displayed when trying to use the built in flash. The camera clicks as though trying to open the automatic pop up operation but will not open. I do not want to force it open, any idea why this is happening and what the cure is?

Err 05 on Canon 7D


The error code is used to tell you the flash could not be raised. Check if anything is blocking the free movement of the pop up flash. First reaction should be, switch the camera off and then on again. Better though, after you switched off the computer remove the battery and charge it first, Then again try everything as before.
The manual says is the error persists, wroth down the error number and contact your nearest Canon Service Centre.

I am recieving a error 1 message on my Canon RebelXT/Eos


ERR 01 is a lens communication error. Try cleaning the contacts on the lens and in the mirror box.

ERR 05 is a flash error. It is usually caused because the flash failed to pop up. This can be casued by something as simple as the flash hitting the brim of a 'gimme' cap or impact to the flash or most likely spillage of sticky liquid around the flash and its pivots.

The XT also is notorious for having the bottom right screw of the rear circuit board come loose and short out some function of the camera, or even blow the main fuse or damage the circuit boards.

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 have a Canon Rebel. When I try to take pictures the flash "hood" or something automatically pops up but somehow the light doesn't flash and all I hear are 3 clicks. Then the screen says error...


Aprilm,

Error 5 is a flash error. What sounds like it happening is the mechanical part of the flash is working allowing for the pop-up, but the camera thinks there is an external flash present. A repair shop should be able to address the issue. Usually it's a problem with the micro switches "inside" the flash shoe.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Thank you.

When taking pic an "err 05" (the built in flash was obstructed). On this camera eos Digital Rebel xti 400D. How do fix this?


The obstruction is often caused by the interior latch which refuses to move. If the flash cover ever opens, move the latch back and forward a few times which "sort of" re-engages it to its normal position.

Canon eso err 05 how do I fix it ?


This means a flash problem.

The reasons for it may be several ones. Let me go from the one with higher probability to the lower one.

1. Flash is stuck. It is the most comon reason, and more easiest to confirm. When pressed the shutter (or pressed the flash side button in P mode) you hears a repetetive click noise, and the flash won't pop up. If this happens, the flash is stuck.

Sometimes is solved when at the same time you press the shutter button, with the finger (or nail) you gently pull it up. Once is up, check for dirty, or any residues (such as tape glue, sand or something like that) that stucks the flash.

Some persons apply a thin layer of lubricant on the side hinges. Don't put so much lubricant or oil because will get inside the camera, and cause other problems.

2. If not click sound is heard, the either the flash actuator relay or the DC/DC board (that provides power to the flash board) or the flash board are defective. This can be confirmed only in a camera repair shop.

If you need further support, please let me know.

Best regards,

Erro 5


Err 5 is the code shown when the flash isn't correctly released.  Try cleaning the area around the built in flash and make sure it can pop up freely

Err 05


In my case, I borrowed a camera and when I got it back, err 05 appears. I've located a bit of old orange juice which sticked one of the sensors - you can see the sensors when flash is popped out.

Built-in flash auto pop-up problem


Does the 'pop up' pop up? If it does and still says obstructed- closes it and pop it again If it still persists Canon customer support will advise the next move. If a repair price seems high you could perhaps get a separate flash if the camera accepts them.
