How do you fix a jammed flash?

After about six months my T2i flash quit popping up. The camera makes a clicking sound and then gives me a 05 Error saying that the camera should be turned off and back on but it has never reactivated.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There is always a rusted screw found under the top cover of flash, which has spring to move the flash head. By unscrew and cleaning it (filing ), solves the problem from its root.

I need to reassemble the screw and spring, but I cannot remember how it goes back in! Can anyone help me “visually” see which way the spring is supposed to be reloaded back in?

Nice! Hooray for an easy fix. My camera has been doing this for a year, and I have just been using my finger nail to pop it up. 1 blast of compressed air on the spring and it was fixed!


I can't open it with my nails what should I do
