canon 80D build in flash error


Hi everyone, 

I'm a newbie with canon camera, right now i have a problem with the build in flash of the canon 80D that I have. Recently I have a cage rig for this camera and I put it on the camera and use it normally, however today when I using it, I accidentally switch to auto mode and the build in flash trying to pop up to take pictures, but since it blocked by the cage and I didn't recognize the problem right away, and it just run for a while trying to pop up the flash. Now the camera just can't shut the build in flash down to normal, any ideas could help.

If the retention latch is not broken, you should be able to get it to work again by removing the battery and/or resetting the camera.  Chnging the shooting mode in conjunction with the above might also help.

thank you for your comment, I've try your solution, but seem like nothing work, maybe the retention latch is broken. However, it seem like not a big problem to shoot right? Everything functions normally, except for that build in flash.
