I just recently bought a new 550EX. Today actually. Umm the problem is that it`s not even powering up. I`m using a Canon 300D and I tried it on both 300D`s and still it doesnt want to power up. I have 4 fresh new AA batteries. The master switch is all the way on off. And The "O I SE" Is set to I for on. Anything else I`m doing wrong? I`m quite new to photography. So yeah. =/ Help would be most appreciated. Thank you.

All your switch settings are correct to have the unit come on...It should even power up
with out being on the camera...I load batterys and do a power up test flash before I even put it on the camera...The only other thing I can think of, dont flame me for saying this, make sure you are putting the batterys in the correct way....one up, one down, one up one down...I know, simple question, but I had to ask....If that isnt the case, pack it up and return it ....Get a new one...
