Hi anybody use,ing the fl-600r flash had any problems with horrible grinding noises when you put new batteries in and turn them back on ?? I got two when i first changed over systems and apart from takeing them out off the box putting batteries in to have a play i have not used them in anger But i have got to shoot a wedding in October and thought i had better get some practice in as i wanted to use the RC on them one started fine the other made the horrible noises on start up after much head scratching i put it down to not enough charge in the rechargable batts charged them up and know both do it I even brought a new set off Duracell batts but they still both make the same noises when you start them up Anyone got any ideas please!!!!!

I've not got this gun but is it the flash head arranging itself to suit the zoom of the lens?

I dont think so Stephen as both the flashes were of camera at the time and i thought they only did that if attached to the cameras but then i could be wrong!:o
