Get a straight pin and a magnifying glass

Or a needle.

THE FOLLOWING MAY WORK:

Look very closely under the edges of the hot shoe, for a tiny metal circle.

This is the top of a pin that is depressed when a flash is placed in the hot shoe, and which IS SUPPOSED TO POP UP when there's nothing in the hot shoe.

Chances are really good this pin is in the depressed position. (pun to follow: making you depressed too,)

Poke at the top of the depressed pin using the needle, and chances are the pin will rise.

And then the flash will pop up better.
