Pocket wizard problems?
Jul 3, 2009

I was doing a shoot yesterday with my PW Plus IIs and they were not firing at all. I tried about 4 different combos but none of them worked very well at all. I was using D700s and D300s with SB800 in a softbox. I tried all sorts of channels and kept the transmitter on the hotshoe and also plugged it into the flash/camera sync to the camera sync.

Anyone had any trouble with these things? They used to be 100% reliable, except around water, but I could not get them to work at all yesterday. Newly charged eneloop batteries and like I said, I had 4 of them and none of the combos would work. Really frustrating. Had to put the flash in SU4 mode and use the popup flash on the camera to trigger them, which worked surprisingly well even at 200mm....except that the popup flash on the D700/300 eventually craps out after about 10 shots.
