Question about Canon Speedlite 550EX TTL Flash

1 Answer

Range bar I've recently started using my Canon Speedlite 550EX with a new Canon 40D. Nothing lights up below the horizontal line across the LCD panel ... including the range bar. Should the range bar be lit up all the time, or does it only light up in certain shooting scenarios? Thanks Sam

Canon often won't sell replacement parts like this to consumers but you may get your local repair shop to order one for you or find a dead one on Ebay or Craigslist and use it for parts.

Can I use the Canon Speelite 550EX TTL with a Nikon D3


No. the Nikon and Canon flahses and camera speak different "languages" in TTL. So while the flash may fire once in a while, the TTL (Through The Lens flash metering) will not be compatible and the exposures will almost never correspond and synch up. Get a Nikon SB-900 flash.

Flash 550 lcd screen lighs up but will not fire the flash


$300. ? To REPAIR? Way out of line. Replace the unit with a similar flash or go for another brand. SUNPACK flash units are reasonably priced and the have models that work with Canon abd orher cameras.

 I know you probably have already fixed the problem, but in case you didn't, or just to help others with the same problem:
 This morning I connected my 550 EX to my camera and had the same issue with the info on the LCD flashing incessantly. Turned out to be the diffuser on top of the flash head, the one you pull out, then down over the flash to soften the light. If the diffuser is pulled out even two millimeters from its resting position, the LCD won't stop flashing! Just push it back in, and voila!
   hope this can be of help
