SpeedLight

2 years 6 months ago #6072 by Wayne Orchard
I have a Nikon D3100 camera with a 70-200mm lens and a speedlite.
I want to use the speedlite as a off camera flash. I have (2) yongnuo rf-603n and (1) cable that hooks up to the camera and (1) yongnuo. The other yongno is attached to the speedlite that is off camera. Both yongnuo's have the green light on and the speedlite is on and working using the test button. Both yongno's are in sync.

When I try to take a picture I can not get the speedlite to flash.

Please tell me what I am doing wrong.
Thanks.
Wayne

Do the yunguno strobes support cls? Is that how you are trying to fire them remotely? Not quite following...

I own 4 of these triggers and love them.

-They do not support TTL and you must be set to manual on the camera and flash
-you do not need the cable, camera talks through the hotshoe

MOST IMPORTANT
-If you open the battery compartment you will see a set of dip switches. Make sure all triggers are set to the same channel.

My speedlite is a Neewer TT560, My modes are M,s1, and s2. I have it set to (m)anual.
I do not know what s1 and s2 are use for. I still can not get it to work!
Thanks for your help.

Is there a manual you can refer to?

USING TT560:
MODES;
M: you can set speedlite onto camera hotshoe or speedlite trigger the flash. When shooting press the camera shutter, the flash light will flash under the camera sync signal.
S1: The mode is applicable for slave flash in order to create many lighting effects. Applicable for manual flash environment. When the flash is in this mode it will fire sunc when the master flash fires, comparable with the effect by the use of radio trigger.
S2: The flash unit won't flash sync with the first flash but the second flash from the master flash, which is the second flash sync.
Note: The optic light sensor will stop functioning under M,S1 and S2 modes.
Sync Trigger Function: The speedlite and camera will trigger sync by using PC sunc cord to connect the sunc terminals and the speedlite together.
Hope this helps.

It sounds like you need to put it on s1 mode, does that work?

Did you talk to the manufacturer? Sounds like you have a dud...

I also tried the YOUTU (gshot YT21) and the NEEWER CT-04. Both of those did not work. I will call the manufacturer about the YONGNUO RF-603N.
Thanks for your support. Like watching your show.

Will the flash fire when it's mounted on your camera?

yes. Have contacted yongnuo tech support and have not heard back from them over a week ago.
