    I had a similar problem. Needed to clean the contacts on the flash and the hot shoe. A pass with some Q-tips should suffice. Try the simple solution first.

    Thank you, that worked like a charm! I would not have tried that since it was only the second time I used the unit since its purchase.
    Thanks again, Holoholo55

    You're welcome. Even though it has gold-plated contacts, there are still some issues with getting a good connection sometime. I sometimes just wipe the flash's foot against my shirt before putting in the camera's hot shoe just to make sure the surface dirt is wiped off. :)
