Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera
Oddly enough, when I put my d50 on auto flash, the flash does go out, but the flash unit doesn't pop out, I need to detach it manually, and i can feel that the cam doesn't like that.
Any clue ?
I HAVE YOUR ANSWER!!
Do you still hear the CLICK like you always do? If so this will work;
It is not a cam, but a hook release like a trigger group on a gun.
There is an adjustment for the flash POP-UP release.
But, to get at it you must first release the flash by moving this trigger release arm manually.
With the camera pointed forward (away from you, as in use) Slide a stiff, but not too thick piece of paper into the flash crease on the left side and move from rear to front.
Once it is up and released, you'll see the trigger hook. Look on the now released upper flash assembly.
There is a hex screw (use an allen key) next to the hole for this hook. That screw adjusts the height of the catch. Play with that, in and out, untill it releases on it's own.

The flash is spring-loaded and always "trying" to spring up. It is held down by a small lever that should disengage automatically when the flash is instructed to pop up either manually or in automatic mode. It sounds like the small lever has broken on the inside and will not release. The camera must be opened in order to repair this, and this should only be done by a qualified technician.
