Hey all,

I've just switched from DS-161 to Z240; and I had no luck with the manual (M) setting of Z240. I tried several attempts playing around with the dial from the lowest to the highest point; but no changes of the light strength at all.

Here's my gear list:
- Canon 5D Mark II
- Aquatica house
- Z240
- Sea&Sea sync cords

Anything wrong with my setting or strobes?

Thanks for any help.

AJ

Most probably you have the ACC switch set incorrectly, with electric sync cords it should be locked in the depressed position. Read this:
