Bounce Flash Warning???

I just purchased a new AF-540FGZ flash and have been playing with it quite a bit. For the most part I've been pretty happy with the results. I'm just curious what the purpose of the "Bounce Flash Warning" icon on the LCD means? It is always present and was wondering if it is supposed to be? I've been trying to find some info on what this icon and bounce flash warning mean, but to no avail.

I use it on a K-x.

Thanks...

It just indicates that the flash head is tilted and not level. When you level the head it should turn off.

Thanks for that. It seems the indicator is on even when the head is level. Will have to double check though...
