I'm grasping at straws but check the user manual, there is an option to turn the pop up flash off...try page 115 - check that and see if somehow yours is set to off by accident.

Try it in Av, Tv or Manual mode and not full auto mode and see if it would work.  If it does then this is normal.  In full auto, the camera decides whether flash is needed, not you or me.    If the popup flash still doesn't work, then I think there's a problem.

Hello divertank, thank you for the response.
I have tried it in other modes at no success.
I have. I usually never shoot in auto modes.. Any ideas where the malfunction is ?

So it didnt even occur to me that this might happen… I went to the menu function for flash control. "enable" was highlighted. So i disabled it and then re-enabled it… Now the flash is firing….. We are working for now. Thank you.
