DOF preview button is generally on the front, to the right of the lens on Nikon.  Set your camera, check your settings and then push the button to see what your picture will really look like.

This one is for the compact port.  I have the NX standard port, but they're not listing that one anymore.

Did you bend out the contacts on the cap?  Sometimes they get flattened out and lack tension.  If your battery compartment has been previously flooded, even a little, you may have to install new contacts.  Try the cap from your YS-D1 on the YS-110 first (they're the same).  It'll cost about $150 to change the lower contacts and put a new cap on, but be forewarned that if that doesn't work the strobe is toast.  They don't make the PC board for it anymore.  I have two YS-110 paperweights in my cabinet, each of which I spent the $150 repairing three weeks before they quit for good.  I was able to salvage the new $59 caps as spares for my YS-D1's.

Both of my YS-110's died about a year apart at 9-10 years.  At that point they're generally unrepairable because Sea & Sea stops producing the PC board.

If the strobes fire, they're probably fine.  Besides your setting and distance from subject, make sure your strobes are timed correctly for the preflash.  Take a picture in the mirror.  If your flash doesn't show, your camera setting or your strobe setting is wrong for the camera.
