You have to take it out of auto mode to have any control over flash, try putting it in P mode then press the flash button which is next to the flash. if this doesn't work, take it back to where you got it from to take a closer look.

Canon 60d internal flash not popping up


Check the metal tabs inside the notable rails as they need to touch the upper part of the rails to allow built in flash to work
Use a micro screwdriver to push the tabs up to the rail
GENTLY as that was what was wrong with my canon digital body

Flash won't pop up all the way open.


What has happened is a tiny little spring has broken inside or gotten out of position. Rather than try to fix that, get a thin rubberband (with circular, not flat, cross section) of the proper length as determined as follows. When you turn on the camera, select "force flash", and then half-press the shutter button, you'll be able to lift the flash unit with a fingernail under the crack separating it from the rest of the camera. Once open, put your thin rubberband under the black plastic "ridge" at the front of the flash unit; this ridge is just above the glass-enclased flash tube. As you pull the thin rubberband toward the back of the camera, put a half-rotation into it so that the rubberband crosses over it self (makes an X ) halfway back. One of the X-loops is under the ridge. Put the other X-loop around and under the eyeball-viewing protrusion on the back of the camera. If the rubberband is short enough (but not too short), it will have enough stretchy force to hold the flash unit in the fully open ("up") position. If you're lucky, it may also pop it open when the flash is called for. If not, use your fingernail and just let the thin rubberband hold it in the up position. It works for me.

Cannon error 05


Error 05 means that something mechanically prevents built in flash to pop up. Ensure that nothing is blocking flash. Switch in P mode and press flash button to pop it up. If it does not pop up - try _gently_ to help it to pop up. If you succed in popping up the flash - check it for any dirt with can prevent flash from popping up.

Flash will not close on Canon EOS 7D


All you need to do is set the camera to shutter priority other non-automatic mode, hold the flash shut and hold the flash button next to the lens opening. You'll hear a motor and a click and it should latch shut.

My Rebel T1i's built in flash stopped working after I used a 580EX external flash on it. It won't even show up on the LCD screen.


Really? the best solution available is to take the top of your camera off?
i don't think so.
Here's a very simple solution I found to get the flash to pop up without destroying your camera.

the person suggests using a fingernail. (s)he must have long fingernails. I had to use a piece of paper folded in half. Swipe the paper from back to front, as in, from the eyepiece side towards the lens side.

Canon Camera Rebel XTi reads error 05 and the flash will not pop up


Err 05 means: Something obstructed the built-in flash's pop-up operation. Turn off the main switch and turn it on again.

Prepare to press the flash request button with your left hand. With your right hand, position your thumb and finger to gently pry up the flash head, perhaps using fingernails. Push the button and pry. With that help, it should pop up.

How to replace the cmos battery in a systemaxmodel#N241S1


it's the round silver battery right on the motherboard.... unplug the computer first. there is small tab that you move sideways with your fingernail. when that clip is moved far enough the battery will pop out of the holder... to replace the battery put it back into the holder with the round side toward the clip and push down gently... it should snap into place.
