Using the Flash
The flash is designed to function automatically when lighting conditions permit the use of flash.
The camera has 3 flash modes: Off, Auto , and Always On. You can take an image using
a desired flash mode to suit your circumstances. The flash's effective range is
35.4” ~ 59.1”(0.9m~1.5m) (in Normal mode).
The flash is disabled if the camera is set to Macro mode.
1. Press the Power button to turn the camera on.
2. Toggle until your desired flash mode appears on the LCD display.
3. Compose your scene and press the SHUTTER button
to capture your image.
Flash button is the one like an arrow pointing downwards. (not a straight arrow) Usually located beside Disp, OK, Menu.
1) Direction of your battery might be wrong, Check out and put it again.
2) Load new or fully charged battery.
3) clean your battery terminal with soft cloth. (Might be it will filled with dirt or dust )
4) Turn ON the camera, again firmly.
Else, Your device need service (repair)
Rating the solution is highly appreciated....Good Luck
Firstly, be sure to check flash voltage. Your 30D may accept max 6V so that your camera can be shot if the flash unit has higher voltage than 6V.
1. Use low ISO to keep low noise....around f/8 or more depends on your need and how much DOF you want.....Set the shutter speed around 1/125 to your max speed to stop any movement (your subject or camera itself shaking).
2. Above is set in Manual mode (iso100, f/8 1/125 or 1/250), then you just need to leave the flash to work in TTL mode.
3. It needs battery, the connection is for syncing to trigger and release a proper flash power (in TTL mode).
Hope this help!

Hi, I know some of the common things for the digital camera. I want you to try these.
-------->If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to
Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated
environments. -------->Set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will
flash regardless of the surrounding brightness.
IMPORTANT: If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash
is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera
setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will
still not work in the following circumstances:
* When shooting MPEG movies
* When set to the Twilight mode
* If an external flash is connected
The information above should resolve your issue. However, if the issue
still persists, you can try resetting the camera to factory
Some cameras have a RESET button built into them or a menu option to
reset the camera to the default settings. Refer to the instruction
manual supplied with your camera for specific information regarding the
availability of a RESET button or menu option to reset the default
settings. Otherwise, continue with the manual reset procedure below.
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Ensure the camera is not connected to an AC power adapter.
3. Remove the battery from the camera for 15 seconds.
4. Reinsert the battery.
5. Turn on the camera.
If all the above fails you, then i doubt that Impact damage would have caused the flash not to work. But i know you are not going to like this solution. No other way , you have to contact Nikon service centre for repair.
i hope this helps to fix your problem. Thanx for using fixya. Cheers.
The batteries probably need to be replaced. Be sure that any batteries seat properly and tightly. You may have to tape the battery door shut with strong tape to keep the contact tight. This type of damage is expensive to repair compared to the cost of the cameras. You can take it in and have it looked at, but be sure to get an estimate and then you can make an educated decision on whether to repair or replace it.
Best wishes to you and Thank you for using Fix Ya!
