    HELP! Pop-up Flash not Functioning



    I just found out last night that the pop up flash of my cam doesn't work anymore.. it won't open at all. i tried it in Manual, AV, TV and Auto mode but still doesn't work. I spent quite amount of time at the menu settings but couldn't resolve it. I'm suspecting my Yongnuo 468 to be the cause of it.

    Does anyone have the same experience?
    Is there a proper way like switching off both before attaching / detaching the flash from the camera?

    this is what it was saying when i tried to access the Built-in flash function setting. "This menu cannot be displayed. External flash is attached." (Oviously there is no external flash attached to the cam.)

    Camera : Canon EOS 60D
    External Flash: Yongnuo YN468


    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    same thing happen to me, Same camera model, same Flash model
    the difference is, I send it to Canon and they fixed it for Free.

    This happened to my camera also, I just pry out the tiny external flash switch with a toothpick. Problem fixed.
