Re: A sliding pop-up system

A new flash mechanism that slides forward as it pops up assures an adequate angle of illumination while contributing to the camera's low-profile body design. The flash offers broad, even coverage with minimal illumination drop-off at the periphery. In addition, the new design allows a dedicated external flash to be used in tandem with the built-in flash.

Built in flash will not pop up. in menu the message reads external flash is attached, but no external flash is attached!!!


Hardware, not software.

Look at the hot shoe. The two metal tracks where your external flash slides on have a flexible strip under them which is pressed down when the flash is attached. Something is probably stuck in there, holding them down and closing the circuit that tells the camera the flash is attached.

Try sliding the corner of a business card or other stiff paper in there to dislodge whatever is keeping it down. Probably something as tiny as a grain of sand or other grit it causing the problem.

Flash


mcomijohns. WHAT ARE YOU SUGGESTING!!!! Stop.

Lakshmy Be aware that the built in flash does not pop up automatically in all picture modes. Try it when in the different modes (on the mode dial) and see what I mean. Does it pop up when manually opened ?, (small button on front left hand side of the viewing pentaprism/flash housing.) PLease let u shave more information for a proper solution.

I have an Olympus MJU 700 but the flash is not working


Hi,
I want you to check these,

Check that batteries are fresh.

Check that camera hasn't been set for no-flash mode.

Give the flash time to charge before pressing shutter.

Try to reset your phone by MASTER RESET(Factory reset) by referring to your manual.

If you updated the firmware for your camera, then that update can also be a reason for your flash not working. so try installing the firmware which was present when the camera was working good.

check there is any debris in the hot shoe, there is a switch on the left that stops the pop up working when you put a external flash on.

If you have been using a speedlite or another flash on the hotshoe lately, there is a little metal strip in the hotshoe (rail) that disables the pop-up built-in flash. So, this little metal strip goes down when you slide in an external flash and disable the built-in flash by breaking an electrical contact. This little metal strip has the occasional tendency to get stucked down after unmounting your speedlite, which results in the behavior you are seeing. Just turn OFF your camera and use a toohpick in the hotshoe and force very gently the metal strip up to make the metal strip goes back to its original position when there is no speedlite mounted on your camera. Compare both sides in the hotshoe (rail). Turn it ON and there you go!

Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Cheers.

The best way to avoid red-eye is to have the flash as far away from the lens as possible. If you can mount an external flash onto the flash bracket, use that instead of a built-in or pop-up flash. Similarly, you can use bounce mode to make the light fall on the subject at a different angle/direction from the lens.

Pop-Up flash - Rebel xti


You will need to send the camera for servicing. There's a lever mechanism inside the flash unit which is responsible for popping up the flash. Since it is a mechanical device, it is sometimes prone to failure. I suggest not to put manual pressure to force the flash to come out, as it may cause permanent damage. Instead, send the camera for service.

Built-in flash auto pop-up problem


Does the 'pop up' pop up? If it does and still says obstructed- closes it and pop it again If it still persists Canon customer support will advise the next move. If a repair price seems high you could perhaps get a separate flash if the camera accepts them.
