Question about Promaster 7500DX for Canon TTL Flash

1 Answer

Lock disc mechanism stuck

Hello! I have been using the promaster 7500dx digital flash with my Canon Digital Rebel XT/EOS 350D camera. The problem I am having is that the round disc mechanism that locks the flash to the camera seems to be stuck, and I can't get it to budge. I took some pictures with it last night, but I was constantly having to make sure it didn't fall off the camera. I can't secure it totally or get it to move. Please help!

Thanks so much.

Diane

Try to put some silicone oil to the thread the disc is turning on. The oil slowly penetrates into the gap and lets the disk rotating. Car dashboard shine sprays often contain silicone oil, check the ingredients.

My canon 600 flash has WP! On the info screen on back. Have no idea what it means. Can anyone help?


Hi Steph. I searched quickly online but couldn't find a reference to "WP". I'm assuming that it's to do with the wireless capabilities of the unit. If you don't have an instruction book, you can get more info about this great flash at www.powershot.com
Hope this helps

Promaster ftd 5700


Hello, You will need to get the correct interface module. You need the module that works with Canon digital cameras with E-TTL II which includes the Digital Rebel XT. I bought the flash and the interface module at Wolf Camera's going out of business sale and had to go through three interfaces to get the correct one for my XT.

Getting the promaster 7400edf flash to meter properly with canon eos 60d


The flash model for Canon is 7308 it might be the correct flash but programed for the wrong brand/manufacture. The way I see this flash is that Promaster produces this 7400edf to work on all the major camera brands but it's programed for a specific camera. The flash firmware updatability is done by a dealer. Another thing I ran into with one of my students cameras (a Canon) was you needed to go into the menu to select external flash over internal. I believe Canon is doing this due to the video capabilities of the camera.

Doesn't work with canon d40 digital camera


You may have identified your own problem.

Your camera is either a Nikon d40 or a Canon EOS 40d (aka Digital Rebel), there's no such thing as a Canon d40.

If your Quantaray flash has the wrong brand dedication module on the bottom for your brand then it won't work properly (if at all).

If this is not the cause, then please be more descriptive: does the flash power up at all, will it work with other cameras, do other external flashes work on your camera? You may just need to go into the menu and enable the hotshoe.

Click here as well if you lack an operation manual: Quantaray products are always a pain to find manuals for as they're badge-engineered models supplied in the USA by Ritz/Wolf. The trick is always to find what the individual product is usually sold as. In your case, it's a ProMaster FTD5700. Page 2 of the manual will help you to identify which dedicated module you need for this flash to work with your camera.

I hope that I've helped, if not then please report back with additional details, or if I've helped you to solve your problem then please take a moment to rate my answer.

Need manual for Sunpak 4000AF Power Zoom Flash


Regarding using the Sunpak 4000AF flash with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel, I can't get the flash to fire. There seems to be no combinations of settings that works to make the flash work. Could a weak battery in the Canon cause this? Does it require some other wire connector between the flash and the camera?

I know this is old technology now, I have a pocket digital for most of my uses, but I'd like to try bounce flash again on my old Rebel digital, and so I've gotten out my old camera and the flash I had bought for it. I had bought the Sunpak flash years ago and I honestly don't remember if I got it to work back then or not.

Thanks for any advice.

Wont work


According to the Canon feature chart I have here; the 540EZ Speedlite flash is not compatible with the Digital Rebel XT in ETTL mode. The 480EG is also not compatible. The 550 or any of the others in that product line are would work. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
