Though I am sure your solution may have been fixed already.

The guide that the reflector moves along for the Zoom.. has probably been knocked off position (either the guide/rail or the "runner" of the reflector).

Camera got wet and won't turn on


If it was fully immersed, there is probably little that can be done. If a minimal amount of water has penetrated it, you may be lucky - try placing it somewhere warm and leaving it for 48 hours to dry slowly, then try again. If this does not work, then it'll either be an expensive repair job, or a replacement on your household insurance.

I've had a further thought - the water may have shorted out the battery, so it may be worth trying with a replacement battery.

Everything seems to be working with my Canon580EX but it just won't fire.


Jackie,
Try shorting out center pin to outside lead, this will fire the flash. If not, flashtube or trigger maybe bad.

METZ 48 af-1 N "err at the place where zoom value displays in LCD


Is seem a little bit strange but it worked for fine me
The problem is mechanical. The zoommirror in the flashhead is stuck. Mostly it is a minor opstacel. That is the reason that sometimes the problem is solved by placing new batteries. The zoommotor has a little bit more power en can overcome the minor opstacel.
When the zoom is blocked it cannot be controled by the stering software and therefore it gives an error.
Solution
1. remove flash from our camera (power off).
2. knok with something hard, I used my fingerknuckle, on the side of your flash head.
3. repeat that for each side (i knocked twice on each side).
4. place our flasher on the camera and power on both.
5. If the problem isn't solved repeat it

It worked for me the first time.

Olympus fl-50 powers up but flash does not fire / work


I have the same problem, I have looked every where even on the Olympus site and have no luck finding anything, I paid £280 pounds for this unit and have hardly used it. Took it to a few repair center's & they reckon £200 pounds to repair it (how can that be) I only want it repaired and am sure it is the bulb I don't want to buy a new one this could happen again at great cost to me. I have to say I am not very happy with Olympus at all, bad service, & lack of help with this problem.

Canon Speedlite 430EX zoom issue


You're gonna kick yourself, but here goes, you know that clear plastic wide beam shield on the front, make sure it's fully inserted or else the auto zoom won't work while it's in use, (or the flash thinks it's in use)

Flash quit flashing


To test the flash to fire without the camera:

Cut a wire about 4" long.
Strip both ends to about 1/4" to exposed the wire.
Turn on flash, wait until fully charged.
Touch one end of wire(lead) to Center of flash contact and hold in place.
Touch other end(lead) to side of flash.
This should fire the flash, if the tube or the cap is good.

Hope they are helpful.

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.
