May need the built-in flash on K5 at my niece's wedding on Friday night, so trying it out, but simply could not get it to pop up. This is the first time I am using a built-in flash. Read the manual the whole morning but never indicate why? I have my FA 31 Ltd on, set to Av mode, ISO 400, f5.6. Press the flash button, nothing happens. Can anyone help this Pentax noob.

u need to press the little button on the left side of the camera - the one with the "lightning bolt" logo. (its above the RAW button) that will release the pop-up flash.

The pop up flash is supposed to just pop up when you press the release button. If it doesn't then unfortunately it seems that you need to make a trip down to emjay to let Kelvin take a look.

Thanks guys. My battery was too weak and after recharging, the flash now pops up with just a very light touch on the flash button.

Besides low battery, you may check if you have disabled the flash eg. via menu button
