Actually the problem seems to be with your camera built in flash.

Dose your camera built flash raised or not ?

No it does not raise
There are a few things that can cause this error. Since the flash "pops up" when the camera is used in low light (depending on the mode of operation) Err 05 will be displayed, indicating that there is a problem with a sensor switch located in the hotshoe (external flash mount). If this gets dirty or blocked, the camera thinks that an external flash is mounted and stops the "pop up" flash from operating correctly. Use a tooth brush to clean the switch area (see below) Try this procedure first, take a few shots and let me know the result.

Hi Himadri cleaned the switch area thoroughly and still the pop up flash not working and still showing error code 5
Dose your Camera under warranty ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No it's more than two years old
Then please don't send your camera to service center because the repairing cost is too high almost a new camera price. So if you buy a new camera then it is a good idea for you....I apologize for this inconvenience.
