Camera was set on the FULL AUTO mode,and it was dim enough inside the room that the flash should have flipped up but it didnt,nor did it try to. My flash would only pop up if I "helped" it, and even after, it would pop up and make more clicking sounds.

Judging from the comments it would seem that while many have been successful at fixing their flash, the only negative comment is from someone who has not even tried it.
