Speedlight 430ex not working

Speedlight 430EX During a recent firing test, upon pushing the test button I heard a pop sound from inside the flash unit and then a burning smell followed, no flash. When I checked the batteries they were so hot I could not hold them in my hand without burning myself. What could be going on here? New batteries put in it and it does not flash ready. The back lighting comes on and the text is shown.

Buy the 550EX, it's cheaper

Master /or Slave = 550
Slave = other

SOURCE: Slave Flash

I'm guessing you're talking about a wireless connection...

Unfortunately, the 430EX can only act as a slave. You'll need one of the following to act as a master control unit: 550EX, 580EX, 508EX II or the ST-E2 transmitter :-(

Just got a Canon 7D. Attached my 430EX to the hot shoe and it won't fire. Tried new batteries and checked the contacts, and it still won't work. Put th 430EX back onto my Rebel XTI, where it has always...


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

Speedlite 430EXII Flash not working. Batteries OK Everything functioning except that it's not firing. Took 3 pics yesterday and then it stopped working. Regards Alan Paramor


Does it fire when you push the test button (red light)? If so make sure the contacts on the lens and on your camera are clean. My speedlites sometimes don't fire after heavy use and I clean the contacts with a soft cloth and some methylated spirits or isopropyl alcohol. Hope this works for you.

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Sounds like the flash tube has gone.

It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate.

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

Remote Firing of Flash Units


The EOS 40D does not have a transmitter built in. The remote flash units must be set to "Slave" and the on-camera external flash unit (eg Speedlite 580EX) or transmitter (ST-E2) set to "Master". Note that the Speedlite 430EX doesn't have the function to act as Master and you need a minimum or the 580EX or a ST-E2 speedlite transmitter (or similar) as Master/s.

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.

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.
