I just got the 580 and had trouble with it blinking all the time, the bounce card was out about a mm and I did not realize it, once that was pushed all the way back--voila.

I had a similar problem and was about to return it. Then i found out that the camera was set to MASTER. once i disabled this feature, the pilot light came and the flash ... flashes.

To enable/disable master settings, you press and hold the ZOOM button for two seconds and the menu settings will appear.

Another method to "reset" you master/slave settings is to open your battery door while the flash is on. Not sure if this is a good way to approach it. but it was HOW i figure it out

Now i have another problem. I WANT to use this 580 ex II as a master to another 550 ex flash. And of course, the 580 II will not fire.

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.

I have a canon 40d and a canon 580 ex, i need to set up the 2nd curtain sync, how do i do it ? respond here or email to mqlimax@gmail.com


There is a button with three arrows pointing to the right on your 580EX. Press this until the 3 arrows appear on your flash LCD. That is second curtain sync. The other function of that button is for High Speed Sync

I bought a brand new 580 ex 11 flash unit. When I turn it on it makes a grinding type of noise and then the zoom in the upper right coner continues to flash. I can't test fire it but the pilot light is...


The grinding noise is the zoom head trying to match the focal length of your lens. A brand new one should NOT grind. It should be silent. It sounds like you got the one that fell off the pallet during shipping. Exchange it for another one.

No.

One is IR(infrared) sensor. If this one comes on, you can not see it. It's invisible to the naked eyes. Only animals, snakes and IR cameras can see it.
The red light that you see when pressing lightly on the shutter button is the AF assist light, not a sensor.

You can see that by looking at a mirror.
