Question about Canon SPEEDLITE 580EX TTL Flash

1 Answer

Canon Speedlite 589EX

At a cook out I leaned over a burner and my camera and 580 swong against a hot grill. The 580 was scorched/gouged across the lower front. It still functions properly but it burned through in two places which leaves it open to the atmosphere. I called Canon and they identified the part which I purchased. It is the lower outer housing with the two red lenses. The housing came with the red lenses and several plug in cables. It appers to be a simple plug and play. I removed the only screws 4, that I could find. The housing appears to just slip off but it wont move. Looking at the burn and the new part and it is obvious the the part is not fused to any aother internal part. Canon wont provide the apropriate manual or pages. I wasn't trying to save just lost time. I am about ready to throw in the towel and ship it to Canon to instal the part. So how do I replace the part or find out how to replace the part?

Many small electronics play a game of "hide the fastener." Look for labels that can be peeled off, screws may be underneath. Otherwise, there may be hidden tabs inside along the join lines of the parts. You can usually separate the parts by slipping a knife inside (not too far!) and twisting gently. Be careful of capacitors (objects that look like batteries) as they can retain a significant charge even after the unit's been off for weeks-don't touch the terminals on the ends.

Why does fire burn u

Because its hot. Not only will fire burn you but any material or object that is hot can burn you or cause scorching or smoke. An electrical charge can burn you. Leaning against a hot car in the heat of the sun can burn you. Very hot water can burn you. A iron left on can burn you. A stove top burner or oven can burn you. If it's hot, IT BURNS! !

I have a canon 40D and a speedlite 580 second sync not working

If you are not in P, AV, TV or M then the camera will not allow that feature. The picture modes disable many higher, more sophistocated features.

Canon Speedlite 580 EX II

is your master flash set on a camera? The EX II has something that makes it have a 1 second delay when using sync mode, unless the master flash is set on the camera.
