YS-01 Dead? Video!
Posted 15 November 2012 - 05:34 AM
However the strobe doesn't seem to fire!
I'm using the EPL2, the YS-01 is showing red for ready when ON. It's loading the flash (whine noise). It's clearly picking up it should be firing, as in TTL mode it goes from red, to green when the cameras flash fires and back to red - but their is no output from the flash unit.
I have tried this in Both ON and TTL mode. Definitely have the camera flash set correctly, have used a friends YS-01 before with no problems. Used both optical cable and direct face to face.
I have spoke to Sea & Sea who double checked I'd done everything correctly, they believe it must be faulty as everything shows it should be firing.
Ok I uploaded a little video... any suggestions appreciated.

Lwang: The capacitor charges once switched ON. However it doesn't ever discharge.
Shame I was really looking forwards to using a propler flash!
