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.

Nikon d40 flash won't fire


Hi,

If it clicks when the flash is already open, it seems there would be a problem with the flash open sensor. The camera thinks the flash is closed, so it tries to open it again and it refuses to fire, because firing in the closed position would blow the bulb.

The D40 flash is a bit different, but if you open it (just unscrew the two little screws in front) you'll recognize the sensor clips. Open and close the flash and see if the make contact when open.

(And DON'T fire the flash when open, or at the very least don't touch anything in there when firing or you'll get zapped.

Goodluck..

I have a HP Photo Smart R707 with a fully charged new battery and the flash won't work. Keep getting charging flash. Any help on this?


The flash mode has to be set.

There are 5 flash modes:
  • auto - flash fires when needed
  • red-eye reduction - flash fires when needed, but there's a pre-flash to minimize red-eye
  • flash on - flash always fires
  • flash off - flash never fires
  • night - flash fires if necessary (and uses red-eye reduction) to illuminate foreground objects, but shutter stays open to record the background by ambient illumination

The flash will only fire if it is required on Auto mode, flash on mode means it will fire all the time

The flash will not work on my Samsung S860 Digital Camera. It used to work and now it doesn't... I tried to go through the menu to fix it and it seems to say it is on? But, when you take a picture it does...


the S860 has three flash modes in which the flash only fires under certain conditions.
- in Auto Flash mode and Auto & Red Eye Reduction mode, the flash will only fire if the subject or background is dark; otherwise it won't flash.
- in Slow Synchro mode, the flash only fires when the camera's using a slow shutter speed.
if you have your flash mode set to any of these, the flash will only fire when the camera determines that flash is needed; otherwise it won't fire. to have the flash fire all the time and automatically vary its intensity according to how much light is needed, set the flash mode to Fill flash; to turn the flash off altogether (so that it won't fire no matter what), set the flash mode to Flash Off.
for all the details on the S860's flash modes, you can download the user manual here and refer to pages 28 and 29.
hope this helps...

AC Slave Flash - How make it works


A slave flash unit is a flash that has a sensor that fires the flash when it senses the burst of flash from the camera's built-in flash unit. Since many digital cameras fire the flash twice for each picture (the first is to set white balance and perhaps focus), these units are designed so they fire when the camera's second flash goes off.

To use it with your D60, just use your built in flash to fire off the slave flash...

Bulb replacement for Sigma EF-500 DG Super


So I had fixed the problem this morning, since the warranty has expired, I opened up the flash to take a peak on the inner workings, and found that a wire had come loose, got out the soldering gun and repaired the connection and all is good.

The flash on my camera will not go off, it shows the light in the back ready, but nothing happens to help light up the picture


If your using the hot shoe with an external flash, three things could've happened: battery power in your camera is too low to fire the flash; or check the menu/settings/flash - ext flash settings may not have been chosen by the camera, but you may need to set it first manually; or your hot shoe is not a hot one, but your flash needs to be plugged into a PC outlet on the side of your camera. One last thing - test fire your flash and make sure it works to rule out the camera. There have been occasions where the ready light works on the flash, but it won't fire even after being plugged in. This problem was found to be a loose soldered wire in the flash foot. Another time it wound up to be the flashtube. Hope this helps.

SB600 Works Erratically...


If red light on flash is blinking, flash is charging. In shooting rapidly, sometimes flash will go off even though it isnt fully charged. This can give dark shots. Flash eats batteries like crazy, best to always use fresh batteries for each shoot.
