Help!!!
I'm using a 10yr old Nikon F601 SLR with a 3rd party external flash.

The flash is a Emoblitz Auto Focus Zoom 728AFNi TTL Dedicated.

The flash is confirmed working as it flashes when I press the test button. Also, I used it a month ago and it was working fine.

Wat I noticed is the "Auto Check" indicator is not lighted up, but the ready light is on.

The IR on the flash lights up during focus.

Anybody knows wat is wrong? Help!!!! :cry:

Anybody can help? Help.... :(

When I press the test button, it flashes. But does not flash when used with my camera. Used to work.
Any idea? :dunno:

Are the contacts dirty? Could be preventing communication between camera & flash. If not, take it to a repair shop lor.

could I presume that the F601 is the Nikon SLR camera? There's a Fujifilm F601 which is a digital camera with no hotshoe. Was flash disabled on the camera?

Yup. Its a old Nikon F601. The external Emoblitz flash works, bcoz it flashes when the test button on the flash is depressed.

But the auto check LED is not lighted up like in the past. Dats a mth ago.

So how? :(
