Re: What am I doing wrong? A77 w/ Flash via PC Sync Cable

I may not completely understand your problem. But if it is "exposing correctly"--i.e, the resulting picture looks OK--but you can't see "a dang thing in my viewfinder," it sounds as though you haven't turned "Live View Display" to "Setting Effect Off" (in the menu), which you need to do for using flashes on "manual" exposure.

This may not be right, since you also indicate that the flash is "registered" as off "even though it fires." But it is the first thing that comes to mind, given your first description....
