Help with replacing flash bulb in canon 430 ex!

Ok, my issue is this. I have a canon 430 ex and I had the flash bulb fail on the flash. So I ordered the part from canon. Here is my issue. I finnaly have everything apart and all the wires from the new bulb soldered into the flash, EXCEPT ONE! For the first time I did not make a diagram when i started this :( ,so I can not remember where the pink wire goes that comes directly out of the flash bulb itself.

My only guess is there is a hole on the circuit board that is attached on the capacitor. I have asked around on photography-on-the.net/forums and nobody seems to know or will not answer J. Do you happen to know where I solder that pink wire from the replacement bulb on the flash? Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!!!

My xti fell with the 430 ex II attached now it


The hot shoe was bent slightly causing the flash contacts to not touch those of the camera. By using a socket from a socket wrench set, place it over the grids of the hot shoe and tap firmly with a hammer to straighten it.

Canon speedlite 430 EZ does not match with canon 400 D digital camera how to use the same flash with 400 D.


You can't. The metering systems are incompatable. You must use the EX range with the 400D, such as 430EX or 580EX (versions I or II)

is your master flash set on a camera? The EX II has something that makes it have a 1 second delay when using sync mode, unless the master flash is set on the camera.

Won't Work As Slave With Canon EOS 400D


Speedlites with the suffix "EZ" are never compatible with the digital EOS line-up. All models that do work are named "EX" (420, 430, 550, 580EX et al.)

Off camera flash


Here's how I did it with my Canon 430 EX II. The only other Canon flash that can act as a wireless trigger for off camera flash would be the 580 EX II and that is why I love it so much.

The only other way is Pocket Wizards or the Canon wireless thingy, which noone recommends....

Check out the NEW Pocket Wizard Mini TTi it truly does amazing things! And only 199.00!

God luck and let us know how it goes.
