Canon flash...

Canon flash 550EX , LOCKED ON TTL, HOW DO I GET IT BACK TO E-TTL THANKS

Technician's Assistant: What Canon model do you have?

CANON 550EX FLASH

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your 550EX?

I WAS USING HIGH SPEED FLASH WITH 2 UNITS, SUDDENLY BOTH UNITS WENT TO TTL AND I CAN NOT GET BACK TO E-TTL

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

I AM TALKING ABOUT FLASH GUNS NOT MY PRINTER

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?
