Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop

1 Answer

Imac Screen "Flashes" constantly

Unless we set the screen to the brightest setting, there is a continual flashing almost as if it's in sync with our wireless router. Our model is the OSX Version 10.5.7 w/2 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM and it's the 20" monitor version.

How to sync iMac with iPad?


The easiest way to sync a Mac with an iOS device like the iPad is to configure both to use iCloud for syncing.

Make sure you use the same Apple ID when you sign in to iCloud.

On your iPad, go to Settings -> iCloud. The "Account" line will show your Apple ID. From this screen you can also turn on syncing for contacts, calendars, etc.

On the Mac, go to System Preferences -> iCloud, Click the "Account Details" button to see what Apple ID you're using. If it's different from the iPad, then click Sign Out, then sign back in with the same Apple ID used on the iPad. Be sure to check the checkboxes next to the items you want to sync.

Hi Bill,

You are not using this flash like a sub-machine gun, right?
Is your reachargeable batteries older than 15 months?

Try this:
Set to low power on flash, set flash to manual.
Remove flash from hotshoe.
Fire the flash by pushing the flash button for 3 mins, same problem(s)?

is your master flash set on a camera? The EX II has something that makes it have a 1 second delay when using sync mode, unless the master flash is set on the camera.

Nikon d80 continuous mode


This can be that the flash sync speed of the camera is not correct. There may not be enough exposure from the flash to the subject during the opened curtain (shutter) sequence.
