Im sure that model of Flash. Does the minolta flash fit the hot shoe of the Canon?
If it does then I would first try seting the flash to manual mode and adjusting that.
Let me know if the Flash does not fit and I will try to help you from there.
Take Care,
Caleb

My flash won't turn on, no matter what I do. And without the flash, my pictures are horrible. Help please?? I have the EX-S5 and I've only had it about a year.


Possible failure of the flash unit or the trigger to the unit from the main controller unit of the camera. Since you are not able to switch on the flash manually the fault can be due to either of these sections , a possible electronic failure within the camera.
You will need some expertise to open and check for the power to the flash, if so the flash unit is faulty.
If not the controller unit is faulty..

Flash not working


Before you give up on the camera:

There are many setting that can affect whether the flash works or not.
You may have inadvertently set something that is stopping the flash from working.

Get out your User Manuals and use the index at the back of the book.
Look for something about "Resetting the camera".

This will reset the camera to factory specifications.
Then see if the flash works.

If that does not work ... recharge the battery and try again.

If that does not work, the flash is likely dead.

Data light flashes , documents won't print.


this is not a network problem.because machine is receiving documents thats why light is blinking. check the paper in the tray whether they are of correct size, change the paper size from computer, or call your tech service rep it may be due to usb cable or faulty network cable, or it may be the problem of main communication board of photocopier machine.

Can't take photographs when flash is on


Hi
The powershot s5 IS does in fact have some strange behaviour issues especially on the first rev firmware. For example if you take 15-20 flash photos consecutively without powering down your camera the flash recycle times will increase to about 15sec, so you'll have to wait about 15sec before you can take another flash photo. The work around is to power down the camera and then turn it back ON. Another strange behaviour is manifested by its inability to lock focus after taking a "no-flash" photo, then popping up the flash and trying to take a flash photo. Again the work-around is to power down the camera, pop-up the flash and then power it back up. Confirmed these behaviours in two other cameras of the same model.

Sunpak pz 4000af for minolta


Hi,

The Alpha 100 only supports pre-flash TTL and ADI flash control which are not supported by the Sunpak. The flash should ignite, but automatic controlling of its brightness is not possible.

For more Information about the different Minolta/Sony Flash Metering modes cf. http://www.mhohner.de/sony-minolta/flashcomp_mm.php
