Re: Solved -- 7D Flash -- tough time poping up.

Thank you to OP and all who posted on this thread. I was finally able to get my 30D flash up for the first time in several YEARS! I carry the camera with me -- unbagged -- all the time, so I had assumed something was corroded. Since I don't care for on-camera flash, I just ignored it, but there have been many times when I could have used the little pop-up for happy snaps or fill-in.

My flash chamber is filthy, and the little hinge is very sticky. Tomorrow I'll get some WD-40, toothpicks and cotton buds and do a proper C&L.

Thanks again. Now I can get a 7D and put the 30D on eBay with a clear conscience!
