Need help with the K20D built-in flash

I have a K20D & AF540 flash, the combination works well. One day I tried to use wireless flash sync, I found the Built-in flash could no Discharge. Then I tried every costom & flash setting, the flash still no fire.

Is it broken?

Set the camera to wireless flash, then mount the 540 in wireless mode to the camera, so the built-in flash and your 540 will be on the same channel. You should be good to go after that.

I know how to set wireless sync with 540. The problem is the built-in flash can not fire in any setting. I think my K20D is broken.

Anyway, thanks a lot for reply.

Does the popup flash work in normal shooting (when not in wireless mode)?
