T is my understanding that you must use manual exposure (shutter and aperture) with an external flash. This shouldn't be a problem (set the camera to the settings on the guide chart that comes with your flash, and let the flash worry about the strength/flash duration necessary - provided it is an "auto" flash with a sensor)... I'm going to use a Vivitar 273 with my Epson 3000z... There are a few other threads on this forum regarding External Flash use.

How do I diable my in-camera flash and still be able to use my external flash unit as a slave?

How to use the internal flash as a commander is in the manual from page 189. The manual is online.
There follow 10 pages about all different settings for the remote flash mode. I could not find how to use the internal flash as a commander and switch of the commander itself. On my Nikon, I can use the light as a commander and when the picture is made the build in flash does not fire.
You always see the internal flash fire, before the picture is made, because it has not only to tell each group what setting it should use, but it also has to trigger the external flash groups. If you want to use the flash as a commander while photographing persons, you can use a Infra Red filter (little one) in from of the internal flash, so the subjects won't close their eyes. Look for the Nikon SG-3IR filter. I think Canon must have filters like this.

I have conon 60D it is brand new that i have often used but pop up flash does not work after using external flash also I do not have flash indicator light on. inside light meter in the build in flash...

The problem is under the hotshoe plate. There are extremely small hols where the sensor for the internal flash are positioned. These sensors tell the camera when an external flash or some other accessory is mounted on the camera and not to open the internal flash. What happens is because the alignment of these hols is so precise and critical any amount of movement or minute partial of dirt can upset or stick these sensors.

What has happened is that when you removed your external flash the sensors did not reset because of dirt or misalignment so show the setting as if the external flash is still mounted and that's why the internal flash won't pop up.

How to fix it, well for a repair person it may be a simple fix by slightly loosening the hotshoe and cleaning the dirt from under it and realignment. It'll work again until it gets dirt in there again or misaligned. This is one area that Canon shouldn't have been so precise.
I'm not suggesting you do this but when I had the same thing happen to one of my field cameras I took a hard plastic coffee cup and lightly started tapping on the edges of the hot shoe. After a few light taps around the shoe I the internal flash popped up. Once I finished my shoot I sent the camera to Canon to have the problem repaired properly. Repair and shipping to a Canon facility cost me $65.00 Canadian.

I bought my new canon eos 60D..i put on external flsah to use..then after i take off the external flash, my camera's built in flash cannot pop up to take flash even i had press the flash button. How?

Hi, What external flash did you use on your Canon 60D? The internal flash will not automatically pop up if in the "Creative Zone" it will pop up with the button in the creative zones (M, AV, TV and P) it will not pop up with the button if you are in the the full auto mode (that's the little green box mode) but, should pop up automatically if required. The flash should pop up automatically in the basic zone for Portrait, close up and night photography, the button won't activate (pop up) the flash. Also the internal flash will not pop up if there is an accessory in the hot shoe. Again what external flash was it you used and did it flash?

My flash quit working on my canon EOS 500D on every mode, when I go to flash control in the menu and click on built-in flash func. settings it says ... this menu canot be displayed. external flash is...

This camera is only one model period old, is it still under warranty? If so take it in for service. I'm including a diagram of the manual release button on the side of the camera for the flash. Try pressing this button to see if it pops up. If not the problem you are experiencing is not uncommon and is due to extreme close tolerances between the sensor "pins" under the hot shoe and the hot shoe itself. There is build up of dirt or oils from handling the camera that have clogged the tiny holes under the hot shoe where these pins are located. So the camera thinks there is something in the hot show, sometimes the little plastic shipping spacer is all it takes if that's there remove it and try the internal flash manual pop up. Also the internal pop up flash will only work automatically popping up while the camera is set in the "Basic" mode otherwise you need to manually push the button to charge and use the flash. I had one person after telling her what it was that stopped the flash tapped the surface around the hot shoe and what ever it was dislodged and the flash began to work again. Really this is a service item and warranty if it's under any type of extended or factory warranty.

Units flashes when turned on --won't stop

5_5_2012_6_29_36_pm.jpg
Here's my LMS 332c circuit board. I'm showing where the power source is on the lower right, and where I believe the first two ribbon cables that lead to the power switch on the front panel (upper left). Can anyone tell me how to disable the internal power switch and where? I want to install external switch and bypass the internal. I can solder and not afraid to try since this unit is out of warranty and is not functional as is with powering on/off and screen flashing randomly. Thanks!

Internal flash not working because of non compatible flash installed

Solution:
Look at the external flash socket.
With the camera in "normal position", i.e., poiting away from you, you shoul see a very small (I realy mean very small) piece of plastic under the rigth inside of the flash shoe... it is the "external flash sensor". It probably is stuck. Work with the point of a knife to try and release it.
In more detail, if you look carefully at the external flash shoe, the are two metal pieces that will help create some pressure. So the flash holder (shoe) is made of two parts: a very rigid one and the metal blades that create the pressure. Look under the blade located nearest to the shuter button.
If you can locate the plastic piece (black in my camera, but can be white) try to have unstuck.
Worked with my camera.

Internal Flash not working-Canon Eos 40D

I've had this happen to me too and I've been researching about it. Aparantly it happens because the camera still think the external flash is attached. If you go into the menu and under flash control, try ot enter the settings for built in flash. If this is the problem it will tell you here that the external flash is still attached. From what I have read to far, I'm not sure how to fix it. I would reccomend taking it in somehwere. I dont htink its a hard problem to fix.

Internal flash not firing

Maybe a sensor is bent, telling the camera it still has the external flash attached.
