On my Canon EOS Rebel T2i, in automatic mode in low light, the flash raises as expected. However, after the flash raises, I continue to hear the clicking of the flash raise mechanism, and then I see the following message:
The built-in flash could not be raised.
Turn the camera off and on again.
I cannot take any pictures with it in this state. Of course, I have tried tuning it off and back on. It seems that the mechanism that detects that the flash is up is malfunctioning. Is this something I can clear myself (maybe by blowing compressed air or something? Or resetting something in the settings?) I don't see anything in the flash area that is obviously a problem. Or should I just take it in for service?
Has anyone else experienced this issue?
