HELP: Sony a77 + flashes F42AM in wireless mode = not firing
Apr 25, 2012

Hi, I have a big problem.

Just tested today the Sony A77 with 2 F42AM flashes set in wireless mode.

Initially the flashes fired, albeit erratically. After a few shots, the flashes stopped firing.

The on-board flash does fire, but of course I can't tell if it's sending the right signals.

I tested the same flashes with my A700 and they work perfectly, triggering every time.

Has anyone experienced anything like this?

I have a photo session this afternoon, I'd be a real shame to have to use the A700 instead of the A77.
