Question about Canon Speedlite 430EX TTL Flash

2 Answers

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 not firing, pilot light not on but display is fine


Hi John,
If your problem has not been fixed or a solution not found yet then you may consider this. Flash units are built with many tiny parts; thus, when a single component malfunction, it will render the whole unit useless. You mentioned the pilot light is not working - that indicates that power is not flowing through the unit.
Check the filament of the unit - if you notice some brownish stain on either end of the tube, it indicates the filament has burned out. Changing the type of batteries won't make any difference.
the only option you have now is to service the flash unit

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.

check by removing the battery then put it back again power it on, or without battery power it on directly then check, if still the same problem, the fault is in the motherboard of the laptop, better take it the service center or consult some technician in your area

Go to turn on tv and all I get is flashing red light and tv won't turn on. Was working the other day.what do I check?Sharp LC-26GA5U


Hi,

Try unplugging the TV from the power point and leave unplugged for 5 min.
Or the batteries in the remote may be flat, try replacing the batteries.
If this doesn't work the TV may have a fault.

I hope this helps

Cannon Speedlite 270EX doesn't turn on and I put new batteries in


Try cleaning out the contacts where the batteries touch. Make sure the battery door is completely flush with the body and see if you've inserted everything correctly. The type of battery you use also effects the flash recycle time and how it operates too. Have you tried using different types of batteries? Try using NI-MH instead of Alkaline and see if the speedlite will power. There's a test button on the flash and also an off-on switch you can try toggling around. The flash itself is very simple so if it still won't power on after all of that, you should contact customer support.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

Screen black. Power light on unit flashes red slowly. Power light on switching adaptor power supply flashed green slowly.


Sounds like the battery might be low which would cause the red flashing light and dark screen. Let it charge for a little bit then try turning it on again. If it still does it with the power supply plugged in, make sure there isn't a lens cover on it, and switch modes or try getting into the menu to see if you can get anything to come up. If that still doesn't work then it sounds like there might be a problem with the camera.
