Hey there to all from a new member,

I was wondering if anyone out there had experienced any similar probs and any ideas to overcome, The problem started today after about 6 months of problem free use, in any of the modes when auto flash is required the flash is released pops up but the camera continues to clisk trying to release the flash up to about 5 clicks then displays err 05,

any help would be welcome as lt stope taking photos while like this

Many thanks

Alan

The flash is probably not popping all the way up. Try gently pulling it up, and check around the edges of the flash for any possible interferences, like dust, grit, or crud, that may be blocking it. IIRC Bob Gross (user robertwgross) has posted an exercise for Err05 to help clear up these problems, which do tend to recur.

HI there,
many thanks for your reply Ive been having a bit of a play with it myself since posted and found looking at the camera from the front on the right hand side under the flash there is a small prong which I am surmising is connected to a switch monitoring if the flash is released, This was sticking slightly i.e not fully popping out on flash release, Ive managed to free this up and it now seen to be working all ok.

But Thanks Again
Alan

I have a REBEL T3 and experienced same problem of the flash not poping up. I read your instructions. Lifted the flash manually, no force was required. Put a drop of alcohol on a ear cotton bud (Q-tip) and cleaned the plastic of the flash unit. Dried it using the another Q-tip. From there on the flash worked beautifully.
