Why won't my flash pop up?
When I try to take a picture with my flash setting on, the flash piece will not pop up. Help?
The Minolta QTsi Maxxum is an automatic camera. It has a few special features including five preset exposure modes, a detachable 35-80mm zooming lens, and a four-mode automatic popup flash. The device model number is 312875.
Your flash assembly piece will not always pop up if its supporting screws are loose.
To fix this possible loose screw problem, you need to locate and tighten them with a screw driver.
Manually pop open the flash assembly with a toothpick, or like tool, and then tighten the supporting screws on the left and right sides of the flash assembly.
If your flash assembly still fails to pop up, check out the following troubleshooting page for more help.
