Hello all,
After an unfortunate drop from about 2 feet onto concrete, landing lens first, my d5100 built in speedlight has stopped working. The unit pops up when it should but does not fire, everything else appears ok. My question is, "is it possible to replace the strobe bulb and is it likely to be the culprit?" I would rather not send my camera off for a $200 repair if I could do it myself with a little work.
