I have had a D40x for about three years.. now the flash won't pop up when I press the shutter button - I've checked all the settings and everything seems okay, does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? The camera is working okay otherwise.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

The flash will only pop up by itself in some (all?) of the auto modes. Does it pop up when you push the flash button to the left and below the flash?

Hi Anna,

Welcome to Nikonians!
What exposure mode are you using?
What is the ambient light level?
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
