I have a canon digital rebel. The flash will pop up in all modes, but will not fire. After searching the internet, it seems that a lot of people with a nikon d40 have the same problem. Someone said if they manually held their built in flash down about 45 degrees it would fire. My will do the same, but obviously the flash is not hitting the subject when you have to hold it down at that angle.
Does anyone know how to fix this problem or a repair shop in Wilmington, NC or Myrtle Beach, SC. I am leaving for the Netherlands in less than a week and desperately need this issue solved. Thanks.
