YN-560 won't trigger with RF-602

One of my YN-560 speedlights won't trigger with my RF-602 radio triggers. I had time tonight to test thoroughly. Here's what I did.

  • I have 2 YN-560's, and 4 RF-602 receivers, so I tested them all.

  • One YN-560 triggers fine with any of the RF-602 receivers (and so do my Nikon SB-600, SB-900 speedlights), so that pretty much rules out the receivers as the culprit(s).

  • The other YN-560 won't fire with any of the RF-602 receivers. Each time I press the RF-602 transmitter, I can see the receiver's light go green.

  • That same YN-560 will fire when mounted on my Nikon camera's hotshoe. Manual power adjustments have the desired effect.

  • All tests were done with the flash in Manual (M) mode.
