Flash does not trigger


To make a guess as to what is occurring you have not presented enough information. So here are some things to try:
  • Make sure the flash is seated solidly on the camera. That is usually the issue.
  • With flash off the camera look at the shoe mount. Check the locking lever making sure when turned the center pin extends and retracts.
  • Sometimes the center pin does not engage the hotshoe
  • Clean both the bottom of the flash is clean and also the camera hot shoe.

Canon 550 ex speedlight - flashes okay. Won't sink with 60d (tried different cameras at dealer - same problem) Camera is okay .


Bruce,
Try these steps:
1. Set camera to manual2. Set shutter to 1/60
3. Set aperture to F5.6
4. ASA/ISO 200
5. 550EX on hotshoe
6. Do not set on slave or master
7. Turn on flash


Display must shows, ETTL.
If that doesn't work, you have to use the flash on manual.
Some of this model will not work fully on ATG Canon EOS-1D C, ATG Canon EOS-1D X IR, Canon EOS-1D X/60D/T4i because this flash is over 20 years old.


Unless you would want it to be modified by me.
But that can be costly when you can get the 580EX II for less than $425.00 USD.

Canon Speedlite 580 EX (mark 1) 6 years of continuous use - single flash, multiple flash & continuous burst - with rechargeable batteries. All is well, until recently. Now recharge time has quickly...


The capacitor (neck) is no longer hold a charge or charging circuit is going out on a extended breaks.

Save your money and buy ATG's Godox TT685c.
If you buys two, then you got ATG wireless radio ETTL II flashes.
It would cost over $1,000.00+ USD to buy two Canon 600EX II-RT just to do the same with two ATG's.

The flash on my Canon Rebel xti is not working. the flash pops up, but it is not lighting. I saw some responses about people using q-tips and alcohol, but I do not know what exactly you mean and it is...


I think people were talking about cleaning the flash shoe, in case you use an external flash. However, there is a microswitch under the rails of the hotshoe on top of the camera that could be stuck in the down position.
If that's the case, some people use a toothpick to release it to the "up" position. If this switch is stuck, the camera thinks you have an external flash attached and ignores the popup flash.
The little pin people are talking about is the switch beneath the rails of the hotshoe. You might try to use the qtip and alcohol if it looks dirty. Take the camera in to a repair shop and just ask them where it is if you're still having a problem identifying it.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Canon 20 d 005 error with flash


This can be one of 2 things... either you are using built-in flash and its not popped up all the way, or you used flash on hotshoe and camera still thinks flash is on hotshoe. Known problem with microswitches on hotshoe sticking.

Can I make the Vivitar 6000AF for Canon work on a Nikon DSLR?


As a manual flash, yes. Just cover the other proprietary pins and leave the centre trigger pin.

As a TTL flash, no. Canon and Nikon uses different hotshoe and flash metering.

For non-digital TTL, I would think Vivitar 6000AF is good?

A more appropriate similar product for DSLR is Suntax DRF14
