I just picked up a sunpak 383 for my camera. I have taken a few shots, mostly to get the hang of its use.Today while using the flash I am getting a "X" through the external flash icon and the flash wont fire. It was working fine on "P" mode, I switched the camera to manual to try, the X appeared and now wont go away.

Any tips or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance, John.

On the back of your camera to the right of the viewing screen, there is the big round button. Hitting the button at the 3 oclock position controls the flash. If you hit it in a series, you will see the icon change, and the X through it will dissapear when it is set for the flash.

Easy to do....had the same problem when I first got my FZ20.

See if that isn't the problem....or reply and we can take a closer look.

Oh ya, thats the problem. Flash control for the onboard flash, and on/off for the external. :angry:

Thanks for the help, it will save me a bunch more cursin'. :lol:
