Sony A55 - Firm 2.0 - fast speed flash photography

Hello

So I've been very patient for sony to give us right update and they obviously didn't. We still cant use external flash with sony a 55 because the LCD is black... GG SONY !

But I was 'happy' when I read that we can use external/wireless flash and do fast speed photography.

So I connected my studio lights, hock up a wireless trigger set up the S to 1/400 and bum, image is 3/4 black. Like it was b4. (this studio http://www.amazon.co.uk/750W-Studio-Professional-Home-Photography/dp/B0033N0LXW/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1309308332&sr=8-14 )

Am I missing something ? I was told by other photographers that I need to change the way doors close in camera(or something like that ) in menu in order to use high speed shutter and not see the doors closed...

Can some1 help me out with it? I'm trying both with/without trigger cable/wireless its always bad and I cant shot above 1/160 if I want to see my image 'clear'

The new thing is that it goes to HSS mode after 1/200 or so but still fail to capture image....

Thanks !
