Err 05 comes up... says "built in flash could not be raised" it actually is up?? what's up?
Model: EOS 60 D
turned it off and back on. Took out the battery and tried turning it off and on... no luck.
Hi,There are a few things that can cause this error. Since the flash "pops up" when the camera is used in low light (depending on the mode of operation) Err 05 will be displayed, indicating that there is a problem with a sensor switch located in the hotshoe (external flash mount). If this gets dirty or blocked, the camera thinks that an external flash is mounted and stops the "pop up" flash from operating correctly. Use a tooth brush to clean the switch area (see below) Try this procedure first, take a few shots and let me know the result. If it is unsuccessful we will move to the next step.
30 years as a TV station tech gives me a unique understanding of technical equipment issues.
i like thew thinking... but unfortunately not the fix. what's next?
wait... kept brushing in the area and in front by the flash... it worked... you're bad! Thanks
You are quite welcome, Thanks.
