Tip & How-To about Canon Speedlite 430EX TTL Flash

Use good quality battery's!

When I first bought this flash I thought mid range battery's and lots of them would do the trick, my flash arrived hours before the event I needed it for and I thought it was faulty until at the last seconds I bought some high quality more expensive battery's and the problem was solved :)

battery that was sent won't stay charged, goes from 4 1/2 hr. charge to 0 in a flash if pc is moved, it arrived 1 week a go

you need to contact the people you bought it from & tell them what it's doing & see if it's still under their's warranty?

My Nikon CoolPix S560 has worked great since I bought it about 2 1/2 yrs ago. I know how to set everything, the battery is fine and charged. Natural light photos are fine. Just recently in the middle of an event the flash just stopped working. I reset everything to default to try and 'trick' it back into working. I suspect the flash bulb is burnt out? Is this possible? If so, is it worth fixing? or just buying an entire new camera at this point?

Yes, the flash can burn out or the flash circuit can short out. You can send it in for service but, since it's out of warranty, it will be very expensive. B&H photo has a refurbished one for $70. If you send yours in, what you will get back is a refurbished one....they do not bother to fix point-and -shoot cameras. Your choice.

it is a french door, items in the fridge part are freezing, what should temperature in freezer and fridge be?

The factory presets your temperatures to the MID / MID setting of 0? for the freezer and 37? for the refrigerator. Refrigerator adjustment range is -15? to +15? in the freezer and 33? to 47? in the refrigerator. Depending on ambient temperatures the temperatures will be + or - 6? the set point. Whenever you make a temperature adjustment, you need to wait 24 hours to notice any temperature difference.

To adjust your temperatures: Adjust controls according to your Use and Care guide. Start out by making sure your settings are at the factory setting of MID / MID. Make only one adjustment: Adjust one control and wait 24 hours before making another adjustment.

To measure temperatures: If you try to measure temperatures, it is important to follow these directions: Fresh Food Section: Put thermometer in a glass of water. Check the temperature during the first door opening after a long (8+hours) non-usage period (such as overnight or when you arrive home from work). Frozen Food Section: Put thermometer between two bags of vegetables. Check the temperature during the first door opening after a long (8+hours) non-usage period (such as overnight or when you arrive home from work).

Flashing Light

I have had a HP Photosmart 945 for a few years now. A few days ago was the first time I saw my camera experience the problem described above. I thought something is wrong with the on-bard logic.

Replacing my batteries (4x2300mAh NiMH AAs) with four other freshly charged batteries of the same kind didn't fix it. The camera's LCD kept flashing on and off for almost an hour until my family got tired of it and turned it off by removing the batteries.

I just replaced the rechargeable batteries with four regular alkaline batteries and now suddenly it works. Go figure.

The moral is that changing the batteries sometimes helps. When it works, it will get your camera going for a while. The problem, however, doesn't seem to be battery-related or I would have seen it a long time ago with smaller-capacity batteries like alkaline AAs. Something is very wrong with the camera itself, that much is clear.

Best-case scenario now is that I have an unreliable camera that can give out at any moment. For example today it died in mid-shot and almost spoiled a family event. For me the solution was "get a non-HP camera".

I hope this helps someone out there.
