SOURCE: SPEEDLITE 580EX TTL Flash: flash is making a constant beating/clicking noise ...

Loosen the two small screws under the flash on the swivel head. Turn flash on. You may need to twist the head just slightly. Flash bulb moves back and forth in the swivel head when zooming. If you dropped the flash, this may have jarred it from the track. I had the same problem with mine, and the above solution fixed it. Zoom works again and no clicking noise. Let me know.

580 ex zoom does not work properly and make a noise


Hello,
When you manually zoom does it make the sound, or on the camera? One thing to try is change out the batteries, maybe there is not enough juice to work as needed. If doing that does not help, then I would contact Canon; the flash may need repair.

be careful. examine the flash for physical damages. if it appear to be intact, you could try turning it on and see if you can fire with the test button. remember, this flash is high-voltage. do not attempt to fix it yourself. if it's not working, you have to service it.
