Question about Canon EOS-D2000 Digital Camera
I have a Canon EOS 20D. While taking a photo indoors, the flash popped up and the locking mechanism started clicking/opening and closing repeatedly. The only way I could get it to stop was to remove the battery. After removal I reinserted it and turned the camera back on. Ever since then, the automatic flash will not lock shut; thus I have a flash stuck open. I have tried removing the battery for an extended period of time--no help. Any suggestions?
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.

Hello - I figured it out. I had the exact same problem. The shutter failed and it had to be fixed by Canon. Apparently that happens after the shutter fires so many times (like a click-count on a printer). I just got my camera back and it's doing awesome now.
