Question about Cameras
It is probably the small micro-switch next to the flash-unit. You need to open the camera carefully (have the on/off switch set to favorites - it makes it easier to pry the front panel off and also when you replace it). Now, locate the small pc-board to the right of the flash-unit. You need to remove one screw and the unplug the little pc-board. The micro-switch sits directly next to a little lever on the side of the flash-unit. Take a small screwdriver and jam the switch to the "flash open" position. You can check if it's working at this time by plugging the little pc-board back in, carefully inserting batteries and setting the camera to on with your little screwdriver. You should now see the A-symbol; indicating that the flash is ready and in the auto-position. You may have to glue the switch n this position, but I didn't and t still works well. Only difference is that the flash is always on, even when it is closed, but this no real problem, as you can still disarm it manually by means of the flash-button directly behind the on/of switch.
