I received an Sunpak brand electronic flash for Christmas (Sunpak DigiFlash 3000) and I need help.
I currently am using a Canon Rebel T1i.
The flash packaging says it is fully compatible for Canon DSLR cameras and I have inserted 4 brand new AA batteries.
I have attached it to my camera, turned on the unit as well and....waited. There is a "Ready Light" on the backside but it never showed ready. Pressing the Test Button I have gotten a quick flash but when pressing my camera's Shutter, I do not get a flash at all. The flash has an Auto Focus Assist Beam that does light up but, like I said, no flash.
I have never owned or used a flash before so I don't know if it is me or the flash that is "defective". And being that it is a pretty cheap flash as the pricing goes, but still it was a Christmas gift and I would like to use it.
Of course there are NO troubleshooting instructions so I am hoping someone could help me.
Thanks in advance.
