I have the nauticam flash trigger.. my strobes arent firing theres a little light that goes off towards the bottom when I fire but no major flash output... what am I doing wrong?

 

Assume you are talking about mini flash trigger ?Is the light going off at the strobe itself ?

Firstly, is your cable good enough (i.e. ideally one of the 613 strands ones)? Not all cables will carry enough light to actually trigger the strobe, LED trigger emits less light than an internal camera flash. Myself had to actually buy new fiber optic cables,as old ones would not work with a LED trigger. Also, don't forget the preflash cancellation button if using Z-240s/330s..though strobe needs to fire first of course :)
