    I have the following problem: I want to use it with the
    Minolta Dynax 7000i (as far as I know this flash works with i-series),
    but
    it doesn't work.
    It seems that everything is OK - the flash loads, it fires in test
    mode, the camera recognizes it, the infrared is working etc...however,
    when I take a picture and fire
    camera trigger, the flssh does not fire. It just does nothing. Any
    idea
    what is the problem?

    I would be grateful for help.

    While the camera should do it automatically, try setting the camera to,
    for example, 1/60 in A mode or M mode.
    Is there a "flash" symbol on the camera on?
    Is there a built in flash? Is it not latched down all the way?

    While the camera should do it automatically, try setting the camera to,
    OK, thanks for reply, I will try to fire it in different modes and
    will let know what happens.

    P.S. Yes, there is a flash symbol on the camera - everything seems to
    be OK, except the fact, the flash does not fire with the camera.
    There isn't built in flash.

    Well, I tried in A-mode (aperture priority) and - I guess it works
    fine. The flash fires. I don't know if it works as it should, I
    haven't finished the roll of film, I will check it.

    Any guess why it doesn't work in P mode?

    Thanks for help! :)

    Well,I checked it in A mode (aperture priority) and the flash fired. I
    don't know if it works as exactly as it should, but it fires :)
    Do you know why it doesn't work in P mode?

    Thanks for help! :)

    No idea. But in P-mode the camera should set the shutter to a usable
    flash range (1/60 - 1/125 ish ( I don't know that specific camera
    model)) and a usable aperture (typically f/8 or faster) with ISO 100 -
    400 films).
