Fix the flash on the Nikon D70 DSLR

This morning I fixed my girlfriends pop-up flash on her Nikon D70 camera.  I decided to document the ordeal hopefully to help others with this problem (seems to be a poor design on Nikon's part).  First of all; shout-out to Steve and Tony for posting on how to fix this problem.  The primary reason for this blog post is to give more in-depth info on what is going on and provide an alternate solution to fix the problem.

The Problem(s):
The flash does not pop up or go off when the shutter button is pressed.

The Solution:
