Did you by chance cover the flash at any time before it quit working? if so and you covered it closely then you burned out the elament. i did the same thing to my old mavica. it would flash when i didn't want it to so i covered it just to burn it out.

Nikon D5000 flash issue

Sounds like the flash tube is bad. Another possibility would be a bad flash capacitor or circuit. Has the camera been impacted - especially around the flash?
Another possibility is that the light tube that goes from the frame around the tube to the sensor further back in the flash base has come loose or impact has broken the frame.
Pop up the flash. Underneath there are two screws; remove the screws, push the flash back down and using a slim piece of metal pop off the flash cover. You can then see the tube and the light pipe (looks like a thick black wire) and the sensor located at the back on the right.
Be very careful. There can be over 300 volts across the flash tube - do not touch!!!

Internal flash won't work anymore

Try a factory reset. In the menu go to the third spanner and select 'Clear settings'

To pop up the flash put the camera in manual mode (M) and press the flash release button and it should pop up.

My sony cyber-shot DSC-H10 flash stopped working. The flash pops up like it is going to work, but does not flash. I can take pictures but with noflash. Can you help me?

You flash is in ' Flash forced OFF ' position.Press on the flash control button repeatedly until one of the four modes are selected.

1.Flash Auto - Flashes when there is insufficient light or backlight ( Default Setting )

2.Flash forced on

3.Slow synchro - The shutter speed is slow in a dark place to clearly shoot the background that is out of flash light.

4.Flash forced off - ( Your current mode ).The flash automatically pops up and strobes when using the flash.Close the flash by hand after use.

Auto flash wont work

did it pop up automatically or did you pop it manually? if it popped up by itself then the flash unfortunately is probably dead, since on automatic, it won't pop unless it's going to fire. If you popped it manually then - the camera doesn't think that the flash is necessary for the conditions that you're shooting in.

Nikon D80 flash won't pop up

Must be a problem with the flash lock. Try to pop up the flash manually using the flash button located at the top left of the camera beside the flash. If this does not work, you may need to have the cam serviced

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and...

I had the same problem.
Look closely at the hotshoe. Inside it, way over to the side, under one of the tabs on the side, is a tiny metal strip. When you attach an external flash, the strip is pushed down and holds down a tiny button that deactivated the pop-up flash. The strip can get bent so that it doesn't let the button come up even when the external flash is removed.
Very gently take a fingernail or a jeweler's screwdriver and run it underneath the metal strip. I had to do it a couple of times to get mine working again, but it's working great now!

Nikon d 80 flash will not pop up while in auto mode

The flash up button is located on the left hand side of the camera right near the top.   You should use this button to pop up the flash. Prying it up could/has broken this button.
Also, depending on what setting you are using, the flash doesn't always pop up automatically.   Check to see what mode you are in, on the round dial on the left -- ie  Auto, Portrait, Manual, etc.   I can move sometimes without your knowledge, and this may be the problem.

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.
