When I have flash-not-firing problems, it’s usually fixed when I clean off (using whatever’s handy, my shirt works most the time, but sometimes I may need alcohol to really scrub dirt off) the metal connection points on the bottom of the flash AND the metal areas on the hotshoe of the camera. I use my camera without a flash so often that the hotshoe and base of the flash will pretty dirty. Enough to interrupt the connection when I do connect them.August 9, 2016 at 6:12 am #18580
Now, I’m about to buy batteries. Would this type be fine too @buddingphotographer?? I just don’t want to spend the money for double the amount I need right now. I tried what @jamesstaddon said, but that didn’t work either 🙁
I know, this is a long link 🙂

Yep, it’s a long link. This short link will go to the same place:
- https ://www.amazon.com/
If you don’t want to buy 8, then by all means, buy 4! 🙂 I would still recommend these batteries though: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HZV9TGS They’re about the same price, and if you scroll down and compare the reviews, it might be a little enlightening. 🙂August 9, 2016 at 8:58 am #18584
Great, thanks for the link! 🙂August 9, 2016 at 11:09 am #18587
Okay, interestingly, I got my flash on, and the setting was on “M,” So I changed the settings around, like I had done before but pressed other buttons, and this time I changed the “M” to “Multi” and it is flashing away,” of course I’m pressing the button, but yeah!
After all, I don’t have to order batteries, it’s just me that I needed to get fixed!! 🙂August 9, 2016 at 5:29 pm #18593
Good, at least you know it’s still working! 🙂 Does it work when you put it back on M mode?August 10, 2016 at 4:14 pm #18608
No, that was what it was on before. Should it still be flashing even on that setting??
It’s a flash right? So I guess it should be flashing!August 11, 2016 at 12:45 pm #18640
Yes, it should definitely flash in “M” mode too. 🙁 Did you change any settings to make it stop working, or did it just sort of quit on it’s own?September 12, 2016 at 3:46 pm #19042James StaddonKeymaster
