If you're sure the batteries are fresh, the polarity is observed when installing them, and the contacts are clean (use a clean pencil eraser and Q-Tip dipped in alcohol to clean) then you'll need to send the flash in for repair. Don't try to open and repair yourself. Flash capacitors can hold enough charge to kill you, even without batteries or seeming to work.

The two types of Camera refer to the SLR's. I doubt the G2 will support FP flash as it probobly does not have a focal plane shutter like a SLR.

What flash would you recommend for the canon sx50 for around 70-$100?


In this price range you may find used Canon Speedlites like the 220EX or similar. I have found these to work on most EOS E-TTL cameras. As for new strobes you should consider the Bolt VS-260 for Canon. Also you may be able to get a Sunpak PZ42XC for just a little more than 100 or a Speedlite 90EX for under 70 (I use one on my EOS M).

Want to buy a flash to mount to the camera


The SX10 has a standard flash mount, which will fit just about any flash unit. The manual recommends the Canon Speedlite 220EX, 430EX II, or 580EX II units. Other manufacturers' flash units will also work, though perhaps not as automatically.

The big thing to watch for is that older (film-era) flash units may have higher trigger voltages that can fry newer digital cameras. Before buying such a unit, check this list.

I have a canon power shot A70 digital camera and I cannot get it to turn on even when inserting new batteries.


I don t have a solution, but I got a similar problem. When I install new batteries, they only last for maybe 10 snaps- snaps ,then the "battery" light comes on and camera shuts off. I ve tried several sets of different batteries so its not a battery problem.

Power shot A70-15 8.0 pixels 6X zoom

Maybe someone can help us out

No power - fully charged battery


How about cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then, with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Flash fires but the image is dark. Tried the flash on two Canon cameras, same problem with both.


Check the flash sync speed on the cameras. With most film cameras, the flash sync speed is 1/60 of a second.

With digital cameras, you must use a flash rated for the digital camera and use their recommended flash speed.

If the camera to flash sync speed is correct it is possible that the flash output is weak. This would be due to the battery not being able to properly supply, or some defective components in the flash circuits.

You will require a flash sync detector, a flash intensity meter, and a battery load tester to perform the the first level of basic tests if you wish to analyse the fault yourself.

This is not a problem you could service yourself, unless you are experienced and knowledgeable for servicing flashes.

These flash units use very high voltage at a very high current when operating. The current is built up and stored in a very efficient high voltage capacitor. A flash can be dangerous to service yourself.

When using with canon rebel 2000. The batteries get hot


Not enough info-

Does the unit not flash? What type and size of batteries are in use? Are there ant odors, smoke or popping sounds coming from the unit? Are the batteries rechargeable and if so dies the charger or batteries heat up during the charging cycle. WARNING! dO NOT USE IT IN THE CAMERA- A SHORT CIRCUIT IN THE FLASH CAN DAMAGE THE CAMERA. uNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED ELECTRONIC TECHNICIAN- DO BIT OPEN THE UNIT AND POKE AROUND IN IT- EVEN SMALL PORTABLE FLASHES MAY CONTAIN LETHAL VOLTAGES AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH.!

Come back with the information for more help. Ed

Not working with my Rebel XTI


ALL Canon digital EOS cameras will work with E-TTL only. Solution: you need EX flash for full auto.
