Flash de-synchronized from camera trigger

Flash light seems to be de-synchronized from the trigger of the camera.

When taking a picture in dark, the flash activates one or two seconds too late. Thanks for help.

You might have a bad flash capacitor, in some cameras it is used to build and store a charge that is released to power the flash. I'll have to look into this further.

You may also want to check the settings, or select the "factory reset" option, if it has one.

I think its more then that... unless you shoot the moment after you turn on the camera. The fact that it shoots means that the capacitor works, its the trigger that shorts it (to flash) is.. delayed.
