Canon Eos400d Flash Not Working
KAMERA HANDY STATION 16,840 views 12:38 Canon EOS 400D - recenze - Duration: 3:36. Am having same issue on my canon 650D & external flash no longer works! So, guys it wasn't a Firmware update issue. Be careful using Loctite - I don't think that it conducts electricity, so use only a little bit and keep it away from the flash contacts. check over here
I'll leave it over night and see if it's sorted it out, but at the moment I'm a happy chappie!!ReplyDeleteRepliesMcKay ChristensenOctober 12, 2014 at 9:07 AMGreat news! Thank you!!!ReplyDeleteMcKay ChristensenMarch 17, 2013 at 5:57 PMYou are very welcome! So I tried the WD-40 (carefully and sparingly) and that seems to have done the job. Turns out there was something in the flash mechanism slowing things down and WD-40 cleaned it out. (Note: WD-40 is used to displace water and does not conduct electricity.

ReplyDeleteAnonymousApril 27, 2015 at 2:19 AMThank you very much. Unfortunately t isn't really economical to send the camera for repair as it is a bit old now, and it seems a shame to throw out.

Canon Flash Not Firing See below for a normal and a loose flash shoe.
You should see four screws on the corners of the shoe, one large circular flash 'trigger' contact and four small circular flash ETTL communication contacts. check my blog I did not use WD-40, though, since as others have pointed out, WD-40 is not really a lubricant.

I am not a Canon flash engineer.
Following your directions, I was able to manually open it on the first try. The need to announce that he or she would not spray WD40 is just an opinion, to each his (her) own! (I am referring to the comment made by Anonymous of I was really worried to open it manually, but it definitely worked. What a great post - thank you.ReplyDeleteAnonymousDecember 10, 2014 at 1:34 PMEOS people - Try putting the WD40 on a Qtip or pin and placing it on the Flash hook first.
I guess from the many posters in the comments that you've helped a lot of people, thanks for taking the risk of trying the WD40 and putting the DIY online for ReplyDeleteRepliesMcKay ChristensenDecember 17, 2013 at 9:15 PMYikes. I am surprised how many people experience the exact same problem. http://basetelecom.net/flash-not/canon-eos-20d-flash-not-working.html If this did not fix your flash, then there likely is another problem (hotshoe trigger constantly pressed in so that the flash does not go up, or perhaps a broken spring).
