It has been working all these years, and now suddenly it stopped working about half an hour into the shoot. I have tried:
- Checking whether the flash bulb and capacitor are ok by pressing the pilot button on the flash and it fires.
- Making sure that it is mounted correctly.
But still it does not flash. I really need someone’s help to figure out what is wrong.
I'm using the camera in full auto mode, with the flash in TTL. I've used it this way for years, without any issue.
I've used it in darker rooms, so it's not a matter of auto mode thinking it's not dark enough to require flash. When I change flash settings on the camera the changes get reflected on the flash's settings, too.
If I set the camera in M mode, with the shutter speed at 1/180s and the aperture around f/11 with the flash in TTL, it still does not flash.
I always remove the flash when I'm not using it and reattach it when there's a shoot. It's making the usual noise indicating that it connected, but just fails to fire.
