So Im assuming this is a common issue.
Thanks for the replies.

In Topic: LED strobe trigger not enough power

Which fiber optic cable are you using? It makes a big difference. Try the Nauticam fibers or the S&S multi-fibers or make your own double fibers for cheap and see if that helps.

Does the LED trigger fire the strobe if you hold the LED up to the fiber port on the strobe directly?

Cheers

I have a Sea&Sea FO. I did read that prior to the Nauticam FO cable their LED trigger wasn't firing the YS-D2. If I put the LED directly into the strobe it DOES fire.

Fantasea has responded to me that the YS-D1 and YS-D2 are currently not compatible yet that information lives no where else on the internet.

From this it sounds like the LED trigger is not working correctly for your strobe. It also suggests that the FO may be OK. Issues with aligning the LED trigger with the FO? Do you know the LED is even working - maybe it is dead or simply not responding to the camera?

The LED is working correctly and I am able to see the light flash clearly through the FO. I also spoke to someone at Mozaik and they also are aware that the YS-D2 optical trigger is not sensitive enough. Apparently the Nauticam LED flash trigger also does not work with the YS-D2.

 

I am willing to try anything. I found a very interesting video though. https://youtu.be/o_BC2fCH8rs

He has the same issue and built his own FO cables from much larger FO that seam to work.

I understand the thought but this information comes from Fantasea after I called about why it wasnt working. It works fine when fired by the pop up flash.

New update. Once I finally got a sync cord I found out YS-D2s dont have a strong enough optical trigger to use an LED flash trigger. So now I have a brand new strobe that I cant return (bought it from someone unused) and I cant use with the flash trigger.
Im looking into options but they are slim or expensive.
