    My 580EX made a loud popping sound & won't come on. Does this mean it's probably flashed it's last flash? It won't turn back one. I've had it since 2006 used professionally. Probably has had 60,000-80,000 fires. What is the life expentancy on these?

Using canon Speedlite 300TL on Nikon D80 camera


The Canon Speedlite will work, but you won't get the full functionality of a Nikon Speedlight. Most importantly you won't get the through-the-lens metering.

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.

Canon speedlite 430 EZ does not match with canon 400 D digital camera how to use the same flash with 400 D.


You can't. The metering systems are incompatable. You must use the EX range with the 400D, such as 430EX or 580EX (versions I or II)

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.

I seem to recall hearing that the power switch can be a problem on the 30D .. I'm not going to suggest you take it apart to clean the contacts .. better go to a Canon Dealer I think ..
