Question about Canon PowerShot EOS D60 Digital Camera

D60 not firing Paul Buff flashes by cord or wireless set up...

Hi I posted this problem about 10 days ago. I received some possible solutions but I just wanted to try a wireless set up bypassing the sync cord problems. I use Paul Buff Alien Bee's. I just got 1 transmitter and 2 receivers. Programmed them and they worked find using my D10. So I took out the D60 attached the transmitter and crossed my fingers that it would fire the lights. No Luck...I even tried the pc plug from transmitter to camera. Still did not work. When I took the transmitter off camera pressed the test button, the lights fired immediately. So now it seems electrical in nature. The D60 is due for cleaning any way so I guess I need to send it in for repair before I get busy this spring. Any recommended Canon repair Centers would be appreciated.
Thanks for all the help...Looking forward to hearing from all of you!

My flash on mt d60 camera is way to bright

Could have different causes. If you are using an Nikon flash, you should put it on TTL and your camera on automatic to check everything is working correct. Then you can change to all other modes and the camera should also tell the flash when to stop.
If you are using an other brand, or a wireless trigger, you have to adjust the camera settings yourself. Not knowing what flash you are using, and not knowing what settings you have dialed in on your D60, this is the first thing I can think of.
Perhaps if you keep having trouble, you give me some more details and I hope to be of any help then. Just a quick question. How is the light on the pictures when you shoot normal? (Without flash)

Studio Paul Buff and Sunpack 622 strobes will not fire...

more like some gunk in the connection, than a short, which will usually make it not work at all.

Hi. Hoping you can help with this one ... The built in flash is popping up but the flash light is not working. Thanks, Kylie.

I'm going to say you have set the camera in one of the preset modes for portraiture, macro or something which would automatically pop up the flash. When the camera light sensor reads the light possibly because you have focused on a white dress, shirt or some other bright spot in the scene or subject it doesn't flash due to over exposure. To try this theory try taking a picture in a dimly lit room.
Also you may find better results if you turn the dial to "P" for program and activate the flash manually with the little button. OR be brave and switch the dial to "M" for manual set your aperture at say F8 and your shutter speed at 1/125 pop up the flash and make the shot assuming you are doing a portrait type shot 10 to 12 feet away.

Hello. My built in flash on Nikon d60 wont fire. Its just a picture of a flash followed by a question mark. I tried all sorts of settings, M, A, S, P, Auto, etc. but still no flash. As I said, when i look...

Software glitch also ends up in similar problems, best bet is to go the service center, where they reload the software at a minimal cost, (If its on warrantty, free of cost)

Wireless remote control

Select Release Mode from the Quick Settings display and choose one of the two remote modes. The Quick-response remote mode fires the shutter as soon as you press the button on the remote. The Delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing the shutter.

For full details, look at the "Releasing the Shutter" section in your manual (page 54 in my copy).

My built in flash won't fire in dark sceneries, it worked fine a coupl of hours ago. Every setting is in auto, Is it related to other setings? The camera works fine in bright areas except during the dark...


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Nikon D60 Digital SLR--Slow Shutter Speed

Your're probably using a flash with TTL disabled. So 1/200 is the highest sync possible with that kind of flash. Did you try removing the flash off the body and setting faster shutter speeds?

Remote Firing of Flash Units

The EOS 40D does not have a transmitter built in. The remote flash units must be set to "Slave" and the on-camera external flash unit (eg Speedlite 580EX) or transmitter (ST-E2) set to "Master". Note that the Speedlite 430EX doesn't have the function to act as Master and you need a minimum or the 580EX or a ST-E2 speedlite transmitter (or similar) as Master/s.

Flash out of sync

I just had mine fixed by nikon and it seems as though the problem would come back every now and then. my current solution is to switch over to Manual mode and turn AF assist, AF illumination, and ISO control to "ON" and then then shoot a few shots. Then switch metering to centerweight. take a few shots, it should work correctly, then switch back to AUTO. after that, the flash should fire as normal. I just received my body back about 2 weeks ago, so i hope my "bad batch" flash unit was replaced with a known good one. if not, i don't know what to do.
