Flash won't work on a 5D Mark II

Is it me or the camera? I wanted to take some photos of my house so I put my Sigma 12-24mm lens on my 5D Mark II with my 580EX II flash which I had just installed new batteries. The Pilot light quickly lit up and I was able to flash the unit manually by pressing the button. When I put it on the camera it would not flash. The 580 was set to ETTL. It used to work but has been sitting idle for about a year.

Anyone have any suggestions on what may be going on?
