Flex 5's won't fire remote flash
Sep 4, 2010

on a 5d2, with 580 EX2 (TTL) on camera and 580EX(ETTL). Both Flex5's on newest firmware, factory reset, Channel1, 32. Test button press on the off camera 580EX within about 2 feet of the 5800, on camera 580EX2 fires the on camera flash. Farther away nothing from the on camera flash. No response from 580 EX, if on camera 580 EX2 Test button is pressed. Now, with a shutter press, the on camera 580 EX2 fires and the 580 Ex flashes red from the base of the flash 4 times-this is at a distance of say 15 feet. Now, I have not installed the sock yet. Is that the problem" I wouldn't tihnk that I would get a response from the 580EX as I see, if that were the issue.
