Using sync cord activates F43AM test mode
Feb 26, 2013

I'm trying (for the first time) to use my F43am with a pc sync cord, using a pixel hot shoe adapter, with either my a33 or a77.  For some reason when I take some shots, the first one activates the test mode on the flash, whether I have it set to 3 strobes, 1 strobe or 5 second continuous, then the subsequent shots don't do anything to the flash for about ten seconds until it activates the test again.  I've tried different shooting modes, both manual and automatic, and have put in fresh batteries into the flash.  Am I missing a setting somewhere?  All I've used the flash for so far has been in Sony's wireless mode.

Thanks.
