Canon Speedlite 580ex ii - won't work with camera


Caroline, you should try to set the camera on "M" and the flash in 2nd curtain flash sync.

Or set flash in ATG wireless IR ETTL Slave modes and pop-up the flash on Canon EOS-70D.

Speedlite 580 pilot light on but flash wont fire


More info needed: Will the flash fire when you push the test button? Have you rest the camera you're using to factory defaults while the flash is mounted on the camera and turned on?

Hi Dave,
Try shorting out Center Pin to Outside Metal Contact after the light turned green. This must fire the flash.
If not, could be the flashtube /or trigger are defective.

The flash won't fire, and the pilot light won't come on. I've tried new batteries, and that doesn't work. The little LCD screen does have power. I'm wondering if I blew the strobe. Thanks!

Flash light is on but does not fire


Hello,

Check dirty contacts.

Do this test:
Fresh 4 batteries
Turn on and wait until flashing Green Light.
With insulated wire, both ends stripped to 1/4" of bare wire, short one end to Center of flash shoe and the other to metal outside contact.
Make sure flash is not facing at eyes.
Shorting it should fire the flash.
Or connect the PC Cord to flash and short Center Pin to outside.
