The only way to solve the problem I see is to turn the flash into non-TTL one. It can be easy done by opening four screws at the connector side of the flash, unsoldering or cutting the BROWN line and closing the connector back. The AF assist led will work.

That I did on my 200E with Canon 400D camera and all works file.
Enjoy!

The speedlight 200E is not E-TTL compatable. Which means you have to shoot with the flash in manual. My 400EZ doesn't work on XTi either. It really needs an EX flash to properly work with the digital EOS bodies.

Flashes Canon 200E and/or Canon 430EZ + Rebel Xti or Canon G-10


No. You will need an EX series flash like the 430EX or 580EX. Those designated as EX II will also work.

Can a canon speedlite 200e work with a nikon dslr ?


The Speedlite 200e was developed to work "exclusively with [Canon] EOS [film] cameras" according to the manual. It is not even compatible with Canon digital SLRs. Most modern (digital) SLRs control the strength of the flash to properly expose the pictures being captured.

The flash will probably fire when used with a Nikon DSLR but there is no guarantee that the images will be properly exposed. Also, the flash is designed to properly illuminate focal lengths of 35mm minimum. If you are using a wider lens (i.e., 24mm or 28mm) the edges of the image will not be adequately illuminated.

No. The rebel, or any digital canon camera requires the use of the EX or EX II series flashes.

How to switch on Auto Flash in Auto mode


Put the camera in "P" and press the flash button above the lens release. If the flash pops, than you probably just have too much light to need it when you are in auto. The flash button is not active in auto so if the xti doesn't want the flash in auto, u can't make it fire. If the flash button does not make the flash pop in "P", search this site for another post about flash not working and u will find that this could be the flash deactivation button in the hot shoe sticking. Not likely though with a new camera unless u have had a speedlite mounted alot.--

I found the answer and fixed my flash. Look on http://photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=00ODWf

This will describe how, if you have been using a speedlite alot, than the little tab under the shutter release side of the hot shoe can get bent down thus constantly pressing down (toward the bottom of the camera) the small button which deactivates the pop-up1.gif flash even when the speedlite is not attached. Just bend the tab up a little with a jewler's screwdriver, turn the camera off and on and voila!! Fixed!!! Dan describes pushing the tab down, but on the xti, the tab needs to be bent up to release the flash deactivation switch and fix the problem. Thanks to Dan D on photonet for saving me a service call.

ALL Canon digital EOS cameras will work with E-TTL only. Solution: you need EX flash for full auto.
