SOURCE: QFlash does not fire

You have a defective PC Cable.

Try this:

Turn on flash and wait until ready.
With PC cable connected to flash only.
Short out center pin to outside of PC Cable, this should fire the flash.

SOURCE: Vivitar 285 HV won't fire

If you know basic soldering, Open the old hot shoe from base
(4 screws).Note down the position of the wires.
Try to fire the flash with shorting two trigger wires,most ly it will fire.
If the springy contact is adjustable do it.If it is not repairable, you can get metal hot shoe from ebay easily.
Caution: metal hot shoe will short circuit 4 TTL contacts (on digital camera) ,so you need to put cello tape at bottom of hot shoe with only center hole.
Hope this solves.

I have a Nikon promaster FL120 flash. I put new batteries in it and now it won't work. What could be the issue?


If it was working and the only thing you did was change batteries. it can really only be two things. Bad batteries or they were not put in correctly.

Try another set set batteries that are fresh out of the box and also make sure they are put in the flash in the correct way.

Getting the promaster 7400edf flash to meter properly with canon eos 60d


The flash model for Canon is 7308 it might be the correct flash but programed for the wrong brand/manufacture. The way I see this flash is that Promaster produces this 7400edf to work on all the major camera brands but it's programed for a specific camera. The flash firmware updatability is done by a dealer. Another thing I ran into with one of my students cameras (a Canon) was you needed to go into the menu to select external flash over internal. I believe Canon is doing this due to the video capabilities of the camera.

Instructions on how to use the settings. Any manual available? Can I use it with my DSLR?


The 285 was a fine flash but is not compatible with the newer TTL and exposure system in the digital cameras. Buy a new flash like the Promaster 7500EDF this is the 285 of today.
