    My trusty 630 will not trip the speedlite 430ez. I know the flash
    works, it prefires for bounce flash, and fires when manually triggered
    (shorting center pin to shoe-ground). My 630 had a gummy shutter
    problem and I cleaned up the gunk as suggested around the net. Any
    connection between the shutter problem and the flash problem?

    Besides cleaning the blades, is there anywhere else you have to clean?
    How? I notice if I shoot a long exposure, I can open the back and the
    shutter will be up. I could use the remote and lock it open. Is there
    anything where the shutter lands that has to be cleaned for the flash
    to work?

    Any thoughts on the the cost of repair and is it worth it? Probably
    not worth it :-(
