Re: Problem with 580 EXII

Before to do anything, clean well the contacts on the flash and on the camera shoe, I do this using cotton and alcohol. If the problem is fixed, then you just had the electronic contacts dirty, so there was no perfect communication on between your camera and your flash.

The 580 EX II is prone to have the shoe feet lose. It happens to me, on two units. The symptoms are:
-FEL is not working
-on the flash display it show TTL instead of ETTL
-big time overexposure

Take your flash to be serviced, it is not expensive (I paid 10 euro) or if you are brave enough, DIY
