Hot Shoe Problem
I don't know if I did something or if something happened to the camera but here's the question..
My Promaster 7500 EDF is a great flash and has worked great for the three months I've had it. Saturday I was going to use it at a basketball game due to the regular lighting being way high up in the ceiling. I put it on and tested it and it was fine.. but it seems the fitting or connectors aren't touching enough to get flash when I need it. I tightened it down and still while looking in the view finder the lighting bolt is in a constant state of flashing, rather than steady for recognizing the flash.
The flash has a 4 year warranty, but I'm wondering if I messed up something in the Rebel XS's hot shoe fitting? Nothing seems bent or anything and the metal is all clean without any markings of any kind..
Probably can't be answered here without someone actually handling it but I'm curious if there might be some other issue than the flash not sitting tight?
