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.

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.

Canon 60d built in flash will not pop up.

The external flash mount (hot shoe) has a small sliver of metal which when the external flash gun is slid on pushes it down to tell the body to not use the pop-up flash and some times the sliver doesn't return fully up to contact the underside of the hotshoe

Turn signals and flashers

The flasher itself is toast. It’s mounted in the in cab fuse box. Looks like a small cylinder, usually silver metal or black plastic. Pop over to a parts store, usually about 5 bucks.

My rebel t1i eos 500 built in flash won't pop up

Hi, I have to Canon Rebel t1i 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. 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.
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 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.

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

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.
