F828 32x Flash conx probs

Seems my new 32x flash is having conx probs with my sony. On the camera body flash mount there are 5 very small silver metal conx points. Well for of these 5 points has a small plaque/dirty build up on em. Now I have tried to scrub em clean with a soft tissue and a proper camera lens cleaning cloth to remove this build up. I am now leaving it to your smart people to recommend another way of cleaning it. My prbs is that when I screw on the 32x and switch it on it says on the display ' connect' even though it is in place. Yes the camer'flash has worked before with no probs.

Re: F828 32x Flash conx probs

Do you have the camera set for flash? If it were set for no flash (diagonal bar thru lighting bolt) the F32X and the camera do not communicate.

Built in flash could not raised up


I have the Canon Rebel t1i (500d) and I had the same problem (built in flash not working). I tried a number of remedies I found on forums etc but none worked. I then tried this with the camera pointing away from me as if taking a picture. In the external flash housing is a metal sprung plate which surrounds the five circular pins (one big, four small at the rear). If you get a small straight headed screwdriver and lift the front of this plate and at the same time pull it back towards you it will come out altogether. (In picture 2 I show this plate removed and sitting in front of the mount only so you can see it removed, it was brought out backwards so towards me from the camera).
I then removed the four small screws being careful not to drop them and took off the mount for the external flash and then tried the flash it opened straight away. I then cleaned all the area of the mount and the two plates and replaced them all ensuring I fitted them exactly as before. I then checked the camera again and presto working fine. I hope this helps everyone with the problem.
I hope this remedy works it did for me.

I have a sony a200, i want to fit an external flash for that.


The camera already has a hot shoe that will accommodate a Sony flash unit or a third-party flash unit designed for Sony cameras. You don't need anything else (other than the camera and the flash unit, of course).

Flash repair


My Olympus SP-570uz also has a broken flash spring. I found that small a coil spring approximately 3/16" max diameter and approximately 7/8" to 1" long can be inserted in the flash cavity when it is open - place on the right side (looking at the front of the camera) in the area that does not interfere with the small latch that locks the flash in the down position. The coil spring will need to compress enough to allow the flash to close completely.

DSC H-5 the flash pops up but does not flash, camera is set to automatic mode and flash is turned on.


Flash pops up shows that flash release mechanism is working as camera wants to flash.
There are 3 thick wires connecting between flash bulb and flash charging circuit in camera, one of thick wire seems internally broken and causing problem.
Camera will be apart to check wires.
Let me know, if you are willing to apart camera, for further help.
Thanks.

My Rebel T1i's built in flash stopped working after I used a 580EX external flash on it. It won't even show up on the LCD screen.


Really? the best solution available is to take the top of your camera off?
i don't think so.
Here's a very simple solution I found to get the flash to pop up without destroying your camera.

the person suggests using a fingernail. (s)he must have long fingernails. I had to use a piece of paper folded in half. Swipe the paper from back to front, as in, from the eyepiece side towards the lens side.

Unwanted flash fire in nikonD200


Hi, I had the same sort of problem. It started with erratic small flashes but then evolved to the SB-800 not regonizing the D200 at all. The result of this is that I only get TTL and not TTL+BL+FP functionallity.
To solve this I cleaned the hotshoe on the D200 with all purpose cleaner for electical appliances (CRC 5-56). This gave minor improvment. Then I adjusted the spings to the left and right on the hotshoe on the D200 to press harder against the flash's connection (which I suppose is the grounding). Now everything works again.

Best regards,

Marcus

Flashing error signal


Seems in a drop or knock flash board might touch metal and short out. When camera gets that error usually the main system board needs to be reset and it seems only trained service technicians have access to tools required to do this

Failure of flash sync in F828?


I experience similar failure sometimes. I un-mount the flash (or adapter) from the hot shoe and put it back, and am back in business. The reason is, at least in my case. loose contact, resulting from movement of the flash/adapter in the shoe.
