    What if you clean the contacts on the hot-shoe and on the flash?

    Use a soft pencil eraser and make sure none of the debris is left behind.

    Is this a new flash, or a used flash?
    Have you tried it on another camera?
    Can you manually fire the flash by pressing the reset button on the flash unit when it is off the camera?

Your camera may have been set to not fire external flash. Go to your menu, 5th tab. Near the bottom, there's an option for Flash Control. Select that. It should now show "Enable" or "Disable". Enable it.

Also "External Flash func. Setting" gives you more options for your 430EX.

Battery acid damage on canon speed light 430ex


You'd have to open up the flash (I don't recommend) and replace it by soldiering a new one in place. If you can't make you're own contact or salvage/fit one from another source you must send it in for repair.

Make sure you using flash grade batteries and not rechargables. try energiser ultra or litiums or duracelll plus but nothing else. if the charge light is not coming up then most likely batteries. I would take it to your local camera shot and test your 7d with one of thier 430 just to make sure the hotshoe didnt short out the flashgun

Trigger a Speedlite 430EX II with a studio flash


  1. Make sure the trigger you are using is compatible with digital flashes.
  2. isolate the smaller contact so they do not "short out" on the trigger.
  3. make sure the trigger is working and will fire other flashes

I just bought the 430ex II flash and it won't fire on my Rebel XTI.... i read the manual but I'm not sure whats wrong, have any advice?


I assume that flash is turned on. 430ex flash will fire automatically only in AUTO mode. On manual modes you mus manually force the flash to fire.
If flash doesn't fire at all, consider to claim the vendor or let the vendor to check the flash mounted on your camera.

Canon 430EX Flash


I have a 430ex and S5, I don't think the zoom head will move without being mounted on a camera.

If the flash test fires ok, then it should be fine.
