Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
Does anyway know why the built in flash would suddenly stop functioning? Won't pop up when the button is pressed and won't function even if you lift it up manually.
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.

The pop up button only works in certain modes: P, Av, Tv or M modes. Make sure you have one of those modes set then you control the flash by pressing the button.
In other modes the flash pops up automatically in green box, Portrait, Close Up, and Night Portrait modes. The flash is off in Landscape, Sports, and No Flash modes.
