In order to have your "External" flash work on your Rebel XSI, you need to go into the menu and turn on the external flash function. If you dont know how to enter into the menu mode, refer to your operating manual.

How do I diable my in-camera flash and still be able to use my external flash unit as a slave?


How to use the internal flash as a commander is in the manual from page 189. The manual is online.
There follow 10 pages about all different settings for the remote flash mode. I could not find how to use the internal flash as a commander and switch of the commander itself. On my Nikon, I can use the light as a commander and when the picture is made the build in flash does not fire.
You always see the internal flash fire, before the picture is made, because it has not only to tell each group what setting it should use, but it also has to trigger the external flash groups. If you want to use the flash as a commander while photographing persons, you can use a Infra Red filter (little one) in from of the internal flash, so the subjects won't close their eyes. Look for the Nikon SG-3IR filter. I think Canon must have filters like this.

The ringflash won't fire on this camera.


If the menu item is gray it means that you are in a mode that does not allow you control of your flash. You are likely in an auto mode. Change the mode to Manual, Shutter priority, Aperture priority, or Program.

My flash stopped working on my nikon coolpix L110..


The Nikon Coolpix is a compact digital camera that is well-suited for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Occasionally, some issues with the built-in flash can occur. If the hardware is damaged, the camera must be taken in for repairs. More often, problems occur because of obstructions or issues with the camera's settings and are easily repairable. Follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the built-in flash.

Instructions:
1.Ensure the Nikon Coolpix digital camera battery is fully charged.
2.Wait several seconds before pressing the shutter-release button if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is flashing red. Press the "Flash Mode" button once or twice to change the flash settings from "Off" to "On" or "Auto" if the "Flash Ready" indicator light is off.
3.Ensure there are no obstructions, like your finger or the camera strap, that are preventing the flash from firing if an error message appears on the display screen and the flash is not firing when the flash mode is set to automatic.
4.Press the flash back into the camera after every photo to ensure the flash always fires in "Auto" mode instead of just in low illumination settings. Press the flash back into the camera to turn off the flash in "Manual" mode; otherwise the flash will continually fire.
5.Change the auto focus setting from "Infinity" to "Auto," "Macro Closeup" or "Self-Timer" by pressing the "Focus Mode" button once, twice or three times to automatically turn the flash back on.
6.Use only Nikon external flash accessories to avoid damage to the built-in flash and camera circuits.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

I couldn't get the Nikon ML-L3 Remote Control to work on my Nikon D40x when I was using the external flash (SB-900). When I took it off, it worked fine. Is there a way to get it to work with the external...


Set the camera's release mode to one of the two remote modes. Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. Delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

To set the camera's release mode, press the button to bring up the information display. Press the button to put the cursor into the information display. Use the cursor keys to highlight the release mode (fifth item from the top along the right edge) and press OK. Use the cursor keys to highlight the desired mode and press OK.

Full details are in the manual in the "Release Mode" section (page 53 in my copy).

How can my c750 detect external flash?


Please read the manual about using manual mode. The external flash mounted on hot shoe fires only when the camera is in manual mode.
Please check and confirm if this solved yr problem.

PROBLEM: F828 & external flash


I think this is due to the TLL preflash of the 828 internal flash. Each time it actually fires 2 flashes. First one for metering and second one for actual exposure. First "fake" flash probably trigers your external flash which is too early. Slution... hmm i think there are afordable slave adapters out there which detect the TTL preflash, ignore it and fire the external flash on the right timing along with the main flash. cost.. about few tens $ i think. they can detect also infrared light so you can mount IR filter on your internal flash to prevent interfering with the exposure...
