Built-in flash auto pop-up problem

Hi , I got my Canon Rebel XTi and when I attempt to take a photo that activates the flash I hear a click and get an error 05 code. This has happened while the camera is set to Full Auto or Portrait. Error says "The built-in flash auto pop-up obstructed". I tried reset camera by turning it off/on. But I can't get the flash to work. purshi

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.

EOS Rebel XTi 400D flash not popping up

Flash will automatically pop out only in AUTO mode, if the camera needs some additional lightning. In manual modes, you should use the flash button located at the left down side of the flash compartment, to manually force the flash to pop up

I have a Canon EOS400D. Every time I try to take a flash photo there is a repeated clicking sound with error message 5 saying, "the built-in flash's auto pop-up was obstructed" yet I don't see anything...

The flash up switch is not working properly. It probably just needs to be disassembled and cleaned. About a $125 repair at most shops.
Hope this helps.

The flash on my Canon EOS 400D won't work

Can you pull it up manually, Be careful when doing this but try opening it manually, it is possible that the catch for the flash is just stuck temporarily.

Built in flash problem

most likely you have set the camera to the auto mode and you are shooting in a place with plenty of light.
your camera has a sensor which activates the flash when needed.
you can set the camera to the manual mode so that you can chose the flash to work even in the day.

Built-in flash does not work

DO NOT MESS with a new camera (or any other new equipment).
Take/send it back to the vendor, The purchaser has rights also. Number one it must work.
I don't know your location but in UK (& Europe) we have very strict consumer legislation.

Flash

I found the answer and fixed my flash. Look on http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=00ODWf

This will describe how, if you have been using a speedlite alot, than the little tab under the shutter release side of the hot shoe can get bent down thus constantly pressing down (toward the bottom of the camera) the small button which deactivates the pop-up1.gif flash even when the speedlite is not attached. Just bend the tab up a little with a jewler's screwdriver, turn the camera off and on and voila!! Fixed!!! Dan describes pushing the tab down, but on the xti, the tab needs to be bent up to release the flash deactivation switch and fix the problem. Thanks to Dan D on photonet for saving me a service call.

How to switch on Auto Flash in Auto mode

Put the camera in "P" and press the flash button above the lens release. If the flash pops, than you probably just have too much light to need it when you are in auto. The flash button is not active in auto so if the xti doesn't want the flash in auto, u can't make it fire. If the flash button does not make the flash pop in "P", search this site for another post about flash not working and u will find that this could be the flash deactivation button in the hot shoe sticking. Not likely though with a new camera unless u have had a speedlite mounted alot.--
