p.1 #1 · 7D/Hotshoe flash problems...Please help


Having an issue with my 7D. I am using the MR-14EX ring flash on Manual 1/100, f25, iso400 when I take a photo the exposure is essentially black. The flash fires but not enough light comes out. Please help. what I have tried so far is as follows:

1. Reset everything on 7D, flash is on ETTL, Even tried using manual flash with no avail
2. Fresh batteries
3. Checked MR-14EX on my 5dii (works great)
4. Tried a 430EX on my 7D, same problem
5. Tried the pop-up flash (works fine great exposure on same settings)
6. Took all the batteries out of the 7D for a reset.
7. Camera worked with flash for 1 night then quit.
8. Reinstalled the firmware (did not fix the problem)

What now?

Thanks

Have you checked the screws that hold down the hot shoe to see if they're loose?

try cleaning the contacts on the shoe. also I have heard of the rubber gasket around the shoe may get in the way so that contact is not complete.
