:?Hello folks, this problem may be too unique to my camera but I thought I'd ask it anyway. My G2 and 420EX flash are not cooperating properly. 8 out of ten photos taken are overexposed due to the full blast of theflash. I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but sometimes I can wiggle or push on the external flash and get it to fire at the correct exposure. I have thoroughly cleaned all contacts with alcohol. I took both to a camera store and they tried the flash on another camera and it worked flawlessly. They said send the camera for repair. As one can imagine it is not likely worth it to spend a couple hundred dollars on a G2 at this point in time. I was basically hoping there might be someone out there with the knowledge to help me trouble-shoot this problem. I am an electical-tech and am not scared to open the camera if it may require it.

Any ideas my fellow photo enthusiasts?

I've got the exact same problem. Anyone heard of this? Is there a solution?
