What the warning symbols mean.


Symbol 1
If the flash head is set to a bounce position while the wide panel is being used, bounce flash and direct flash may illuminate the subject creating an unnatural effect. If this occurs, the entire LCD panel blinks as a warning to retract the wide panel

Symbol 2

If the wide panel accidentally breaks loose from the flash unit, you will not be able to operate the zoom button. If this occurs, operation of the zoom button can be restored using the following procedure:
  • While simultaneously pressing the flash mode button and the zoom button, slide the main switch from OFF to ON and then to the SE position.
  • This will restore the zoom button operation, but the bounce indicator will continue to blink in the display. To repair the wide panel, take the flash to your nearest Canon service station
