Thanks for the suggestions.

I have checked the manual and there's little info on using a cable connection since the input jack isn't on the flash but on a third party foot adapter. I've made sure the test button isn't stuck -- the flash works properly in either wireless mode or mounted on the camera, so that's not the problem.

Although I'm interested to find out why this behavior is happening, I guess at this point I'm going to just get a shoe-mount cable like the one suggested for hand-holding the flash up to a meter or so off camera. If and when I start doing enough photography with the light off camera quite a distance away I will have to work out a system at that time to backup Sonys wireless mode if it fails. (Short of paying a couple hundred for a pocketwizard)
