I have a Canon 7D and a Canon 430EX speedlite.

I have used my Canon 430EX speedlite both on camera and off (using radio poppers when off).  Recently I found out that I could use my speedlite wireless with the Canon 7D and did some senior pictures this way.  I am now trying to use the flash on camera again and it is not firing.  I reset my flash settings in the camera, but it still doesn't work.   I have replaced the batteries, but it still doesn't work.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

Is the 430 still in slave mode?

Assuming that the flash functionality is enabled in the flash control menu, then I would just try cleaning off the flash's foot and the camera's hotshoe.

I assume that after 7 years they have moved on.
