Hi!

I think the problem might be the same as mine. The flash stopped to open, so I used a thin piece of metal to press on the hook holding it down. It jumped up and a tiny piece of plastic lied just by the joint to the right.

I have no idea how to fix it. But I would like to! :( But I think tearing the flash of and actually check where its from is the only way.
