Help with my HVL-F20AM Flash
Feb 3, 2013


I have the HVL-F20AM flash and have used it successfully in the past.  For some reason it doesn't seem to be working now but I want to make sure I have the settings correct before I blame the flash or the camera.

When I lift up the flash to turn it on,  it shows that it is charged- both the green and orange lights are on.  However, when I take photo, the flash doesn't go off.  When I look at the back of the camera I have noticed that there is an orange blinking dot next to the flash symbol (the lightening bolt).  If I take the flash off of the camera and use the built-in flash, it works just fine and the orange dot on the back of the camera is steady- it does not blink.

Fill flash is set on the camera.  I have checked it to make sure.

Does anyone know what is happening?  Did I explain the situation clearly?
