60D Flash Problem
Oct 4, 2010

I attached a Speedlite 580EX to the 60D. Then I took it off. Now the 60D thinks that the Speedlite is still attached although it is not. I can no longer pop up the built-in flash in P, Tv, Av, or M shooting modes. I also cannot access the Flash Control/Built-in flash func. setting menu (produces an error message saying a Speedlite is attached). In the automatic modes, e.g., Portrait, the flash does not pop up in low light scenes.

I have done the following things multiple times: (1) removed and replaced the battery, (2) cleared all camera settings, and, (3) powered the camera on and off. None of these procedures resolves the problem.

Has anyone else encountered this problem, and, if so, do you have a fix?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
