Question about Canon Speedlite 550EX TTL Flash
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.

Send the flash back to canon for Service this is not something that can be fixed in this forum. Do not use the flash the burning smell indicated a potentially dangerous problem and fire hazard.

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.
