420EX won't fire, I have tried it on my 1D, 400D, and as a slave triggered with my 550EX and tried my ST-E2. When camera mounted in P mode it sets the speed at 60 and shows the lightening sign but only fires a pre- flash and photos are very dark with the exposure time recorded for ambient light not at 60, same happens when used as a slave. I have replaced batteries and recharged ,cleaned contacts etc ,all other functions on the speedlite work as normal. Any ideas people or do I bin it and start again.

Can you fire it using the test button?


Would you like to buy a vowel?

Yes the test button works ok on or of camera, I also note the exposure indicator lamp will not light up after I take a pic
