My D50 is a veteran, having shot over 25,000 shots inside of 5 years! About half the time, the flash won't fire. This is a recent problem. What can I do about this, short of ship it to the factory, or buy a new camera? Thanks!

More than once someone has posted with this same problem, and the answer was that the shooter was wearing a cap and the bill of the cap kept the flash unit from coming all the way up. (This has happened to me before.) Are you wearing a cap when your flash won't fire?
