Help...I was recently using my pop-up flash and suddenly it doesn't lock into place. It stays in the "up" position and won't lock down unless I tape it. It's out of warranty. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks,
Rob

Check the spring loaded latch release on left side of the flash (not the pop up button). It could be stuck open. It should spring back and forth.
