Sony Flash HVL-F43M compatibility with A6000?

I just bought a Sony HVL-F43M flash for my Sony A6000.

When I insert it into the multi-interface hotshoe and turn the camera on, I get this message.

'This accessory is not supported by the device and cannot be used. Please verify the compatibility with the device'

I am sure this flash IS compatible with the A6000 ( http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/content/cnt-comp/ILCE-6000/list?f=acc-sony ).

I have reset the flash to factory defaults by pressing the 'Mode' and 'TTL/M' mode buttons as stated in the manual to no avail.

What am I doing wrong?.

Thanks very much for any assistance in getting me up and running with the HVL-F43M and A6000.
