In the flash shoe on the top of the camera, there is a metal spring plate. Under the plate you will find a white cylandars that goes through the hot shoe (about as thick as a paper clip). When an external flash is pushed onto the shoe, this pin is pushed down and tells the camera there is an external flash in the flash shoe. This disconnects the internal flash. Spillage can cause this pin to stick down. Remove the battery, and then put a little Windex on a clean toothbrush and clean the pinhole. Blow lightly to evaporate. The pin should pop up, but it might take a couple of cleaning attempts.

Another cause could be that sticky liquid spillage has gotten on the pivots for the flash. Once again, cleaned with small amount of Windex on a q-tip may free the pivot. One of the pivots is a screw. Sometimes it is rusted, and needs to have the rust scraped off and then a light coating of grease applied.

In almost all the canon EOS camera I’ve seen this problem . In almost all cases it is caused by bad care of the camera. A large amount of faults are caused by dirty cameras. Grease from fingers, small amounts os dust and dead skin building up until it failed. The solution above is correct. But care is the problem linked with cleanliness. Not only the specific area and fix above but also the seating area must be clean. This is to often ignored. As is each area on a camera where to surfaces meet such as the lense

Hi i own a 7d the problem is very likeiy to be in the little pin under the spring on the hot shoe on the right hand side

i have used isopropyl alcohol and a tooth brush when it has worked i then use a little crc or wd 40 on the end of a tooth pick to keep the pin from getting stuck again

i hope this helps
