Re: E520 Pop Up flash will not stay down. Help please.

I had an E camera that did this (or failed to open, I don't remember which).

In my case it was the mechanical catch.. a small plastic hook that pokes out of a slot under the flip up flash. I gave it a gentle wriggle to and fro with a pointy thing and it started to behave. I can't see that it is anything electronic causing it... but you could test the theory by removing the battery to see if it latches then.

Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
