Are you sure the flash indicated ETTL II? According to the manual it only displays ETTL.

Yeah everything is on order look and the shooter is on mechanical because w is on electronic didnt pop the flash. look

Is the speedlite not always firing when its supposed too. Note flash photography is NOT compatible with the electronic shutter only mechanical. Are other functions of the speedlite working. Does the speedlite fire an AF Assist Beam if the camera can't lock focus in low light.

When any Canon E-TTL speedlite is mounted on a camera that supports E-TTL II. The speedlite will always display E-TTL. Even If the camera supports E-TTL II. Also E-TTL II is implemented in the camera body not the speedlite. Making all Canon EX and EL speedlites compatible regardless of the age.
