Flash wont pop up err05

Usual cause is either spillage or impact to the flash unit. Most spillage is on the two flash pivots. Pull on top cover when it is attempting to go up to free it and remove the screws underneath and pry off the flash cover. You can now reach the pivot screw (many times rusted - remove, scrape off rust, and put on grease and re-install). BE VERY CAREFUL. THERE IS 300 VOLTS ACROSS THE FLASH TUBE AND YOU CAN GET A NASTY SHOCK!!!!

Your camera is telling you that you need to phone or e-mail Nikon USA's Customer Support Department for instruction as to how to proceed. There phone number is 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687)9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday. Based on my experience, they will suggest that you send your camera in for service.

Error "Err05" keeps initiating preventing flash operating

There are two versions of this problem: 1. The flash does not pop-up. 2. The flash does pop-up.

Here’s the fix to the err05 msg when the flash does pop-up. This will work on the XTi and perhaps on similar Canon cameras:

The pop-up flash has two legs. Look at the pivot point of the right leg (”right” when looking into the lens). Just in front of the pivot is a very small spring-load pin on the “roof” of the camera body.
This pin is the sensor that tells the camera the state of the flash. The pin is pushed down when the pop-up flash is closed and is suppose to quickly spring up when the flash is opened. Problem is, the pin sometimes gets dirty and drags. When it is slow to spring up … you get the err05 message.

Fix: Take a small jeweler’s screwdriver and dip the tip in isopropyl alcohol. (Don’t use any other solvent unless it’s designed for cleaning electronic parts!) Then touch the screwdriver tip to the pin. Do this several times until the pin area is nicely wet. Then push the pin up and down until it is able to spring up quickly.
