580ex problem with settings
I have a 580ex. It works fine but settings can only be adjusted within a few seconds after it is turned on. Otherwise the zoom symbol just flashes and nothing can be pressed. To change a setting such as exposure after the flash is turned on, it needs to be turned off and on again, which allows you to change the exposure as long as one pushes the function button and turns the dial within a few seconds. Any ideas?

Are the batteries fresh or freshly charged? Have you tried another set of batteries in case one is weak?

This may not be related but I have had problems with the 580 EXII making consistent contact with the hot shoe causing unexplainable behaviors.
